First of all, you are talking about a very serious drug issue. Along with all the deteriorating and devastating effects of this drug, your injection site may be infected or you may be damage your vessels with the needle and a thrombotic event may have already occured. You must immediately admit to a hospital, otherwise things may get very dangerous for your physical and mental health.

May you recover soon
