Being a IV heroin addict I used methamphetimine to cure withdrawal symptoms. It worked but I don't get high off the meth. Able to eat and sleep. Why?

No clue: But I wish you were more concerned with dealing with your addictions than blocking withdrawal symptoms. I have treated MANY people who used both heroin and methamphetamine, and none of them said that amphetamine did anything beneficial for their withdrawal, so it may be just your particular biology. Most use speed to stay awake for the heroin high, or use heroin to take the edge off the speed. ...Read more

Have MS had 3 day meth pred got shingles 2 days later as well have had two episodes of seizure like symptoms in past week should I be concerned?

See your neurologist: Things are clearly getting out of control. I presume you had a recent relapse, and now have had complication of shingles, and increased MS symptomatology in spite of methylprednisolone. You do NOT list an MS disease modifying agent.
