I have quit crystal meth for 3 days and slept the whole time now my legs are numb but no pain...why?

Sleeping long periods is not uncommon after stopping the amphetamine. Nerve damage can occur. Both at a central and peripheral level. I am going to guess that your issue was the way you were sleeping for the past 72 hours. If this doesn't resolve. See you PCP. ...Read more

Can meth cause bruise in a particular region of body such just arms or just legs? (and takes prenatals and b-100) does eat under 1800 cal

Meth=methamphetamine: Or methadone. I assume you are talking about crystal meth. It is good you are taking vitamins, but that is not going to protect your unborn child from the harm of using methamphetamine. I am not aware of bruising as a complication, and you should see your OB provider to be evaluated, and get a referral for treatment for your drug problems. Good luck. ...Read more

The meth users that I've autopsied have tried to claw the flesh from their bodies. Please stop this. You're strong, your fellow meth-users are NOT real friends, and you can do this. ...Read more

Can smoking meth cause rashes can it come out pores?

Yes and no: Yes, meth can cause skin rash. No, it doesn't come out your pores. The skin has LOTS of capillaries which carry the meth all through your skin. That can cause an immune reaction in the skin or change its structure leading to chronic skin inflammation or infection that can be lifelong. Experienced doctors, police etc know what meth rash looks like. It's like tattooing "meth head" on your forehead. ...Read more

Greetings I often get this flea infection get some rashes around my thigh or leg I use a ointment get relief but it appears any permanent solution?

Avoid fleas: The question is a little hard to understand, but seems as though if you get flea bites, you get an infection. Obviously avoiding the causing agent (or bug in this case) is the permanent solution. Using some kind of flea repellent, treating rugs, clothes and having pets flea free are all components of making this happen. ...Read more
