I injected meth and missed my arm and hand got very hot and red then my fingers went numb after that my arm started getting hives and its kinda sore and numb what can I do at home to be okay? ????

Go to ER: Meth may cause severe constriction of the blood vessels supplying your fingers. If it is not already too late and you are still having symptoms, go to the ER to get the meth effect reversed. There is a potential danger of losing one or more of your digits. By the way, you need to get some help on your meth addiction quickly.

Am an IV meth user and missed when shooting in arm 2 days ago, its now swollen and red and appears to be abssessed, what do I do I have been taking clindamycin 150 mg cap

Hello.: Hello. I am assuming by the fact that you wrote in for medical input that the Clindamycin was not prescribed to you for this incident. Abcesses often need to have an incision and drainage. Do not recommend that you perform surgery on yourself. Do recommend that you be medically evaluated as this needs medical care.

ER: I would say get to the closest emergency room, immediately. There's no telling what kinds of infections you've been exposed to. Do this right now. Or dial 911.

Could I come out positive for meth if they swab my hand for an ion drug test?

Could I come out positive for meth if they swab my hand for an ion drug test?

Sure: An ION drug test is a screening test. Like any kind of test, anybody's result can be positive or be negative. A person who tests positive is a true positive if she has the substance, but is a false positive if she has none of the substance. The technology can be helpful in other settings, such as screening passengers and cargo at airports for drugs and explosives.

Injected meth in hand now cant bend wrist back or left anything without pain? What did I hit?

See your doctor: And enter a rehab program immediately. Your actions need to be addressed and you need assistance. Certainly have your hand and wrist evaluated of course, but my main concern is your inappropriate use of drugs, especially with a new baby. Resurrect your lifestyle.
