Side effects....?: Most likely you are dealing with some type of side effect of your drug use. It could be a side effect related to the drug itself, or to the process of injecting yourself where you could have something like an embolism. Best advice is to have neurologist examine you and see if there are any other minor abnormalities to try and pin down a definitive diagnosis.

Concepts: Glad you are pulling your life back together. Please stay away from substance abuse. Your nerve issues could take months to stabilize, as the central wire (axon), grows at speed of fingernail (0.1 mm daily). Take a B-50 complex daily and be patient.

RECOVERY: Recovery is a long complicated process. Have a physical exam by a Dr. to know if you have a physical illness and for symptom relief. Consult with a Psychiatrist & Clinical Psychologist. You are in the right direction staying in program and trying to stay clean & sober. Don't give up. Your fears & anxiety could be heightened due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Stay safe & hopeful to boost your immunity.
