Illicit drug use: causes changes in many bodily functions that are deleterious to life. I would recommend stopping ALL DRUG USE immediately and give your body some time to normalize. Our bodies have a remarkable capacity to heal themselves if you don't interfere. I think you will agree if you follow this advice.
