Hi, my husband recently quit using meth and he has hard lumps in a few spots on his arms. He said he felt like one may have ruptured and is now having flue like symptoms but about 5x worse. He doesn t want to go to the DR and I don t know what to do. He is getting very disoriented and having bad hot flashes. What should we do?

Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

I went through your problem description. You did not mention how many days passed after your husband left smoking meth. Anyway the symptoms you are mentioning might be due to the relapse of mind and body wanting meth. But don't worry.

For the body, it takes care of itself and repairs the damage. You have to assist it for speedy recovery. Lot of water and fruit juices, regular exercises, nutritious food etc helps the body to repair itself.

Mental relpse is different thing. Never allow him to sit idle. Put your husband into some engrossing task always. Tell him that this is the only way to come out of mental anxiety. We have lot of other priority than to think about body condition or smoking or worrying etc. Consult a psychological counselor if need be. The lums on his hand might not be related to meth discontinuation.

Hope this clears your doubt. Available for further clarifications.
Good luck.
