Phlebitis: Please don't do this any more. You're smart enough to have found HealthTap; you're smart enough to move on and leave the "friends" who did this with you behind. The vein is inflamed and may be thrombosed. If it's not better tomrrow, get seen. If you feel you can't stop doing meth on your own, please talk with your personal physician. I'm really glad you wrote -- let's start a better life.
