What causes swelling in the hand after taking MDMA?

hello, i took some mdma yesterday and today have experienced some swelling in my hand, red skin, bumps on my four-head and swollen lips. i was wondering if i might be allergic and whether these side effects will subside with time or whether i should seek treatment.

Puffy hand syndrome is the end result of lymphatic obstruction. Repeated injections of drugs in or outside the veins destroy the lymphatics. Buprenorphine may play an important role in the puffy hand sign.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Last night I took MDMA with some friends, it wasn t my first time but it s not something I do often. We walked a lot and were outside for at least a few hours in a row. It was between 30-40 degrees out and with the wind chill probably colder. Not to mention I had no socks on, and was sometimes not even wearing a jacket because I was sweating. Now my hands burn and itch sometimes, my feet a little but mostly my arms and hands where my skin was bare for a period of time. Now I m thinking about it and worrying because that s what I do, and it s making me feel even more itchy. I just want to know if that could be related to frostbite? Or my skin being irritated? Other than that i feel fine, just a little soar from walking all night. Thanks

Hi. I took MDMA or molly last night. I ve done it before and when I do it, I tend to gurn my mouth which results in cuts inside my cheeks. However, this time, I sucked and bit on my lips so much that they got swollen. My lips look like I ate something I m allergic to. I know that it wasn t an allergic reaction but me biting my lips. Even my friends kept telling me that I needed to stop biting my lips. I ve been icing them all day and I just took a dosage of menstral cramp pills since I figured it could help with the swelling. What else would you suggest I take to help reduce the swelling? I know time will heal them but when practical advice can you give to reduce the swelling? PS- the menatral cramp pills seem to have helped reduce the swelling after 30min of taking them. Thank you for your help (:

Hello I was just curious about an issue that I m having. I took mdma a few days ago I think it s been 4 days since the last dose, but I did it 3 days in a row up to then. Now I m having extreme cases of dizziness and head rushes. I wanna avoid the hospital but it just seems to get worse as the days go by. Is this something you have heard of before and if so do you know what I can do to reverse or slow the effects. I m not doing any more but the damage is done. I believe it s the low serotonin levels that might be causing it. Thanks for the help and time. T.S
