Hi TrevorJustin

Welcome

I have no experience with heroin, but maybe you should check this out with a Dr?

Welcome Trevorjustin,

I would suggest you go to the nearest ER and find out. We cannot possibly know whats going on with you. Best to speak with a professional. Doctors in the ER would be able to answer your questions.



Best Wishes To You!

Sounds like it's time to quit shooting dope.

If you want to stop, help is available. Do you want to stop?

Peace & Love,
Sugah

This is a recovery site
If you want to stop doing heroin, this is the place for you.

We don't allow our members to give medical advice tho I'm afraid.
It's in your best interests.

((Trevorjustin)) - Though I never shot up heroin, I did my fair share of shooting up dope - first opiates, including morphine which breaks down to pretty much the same as heroin, and then crack.

I had some reactions..something I think they call "needle fever"? when I had uncontrollable shivering and ran a fever, hit an artery a time or two that caused numbness, pain and loss of feeling.

This is nothing to mess with, and I regret that I didn't take the warning signs seriously. On a good note, I've been in recovery almost 5 years and SR has been a huge part of that. If you want to get off the rollercoaster of addiction, you're in the right place.

Hugs and prayers,

Amy

Thank you

Tha k you to everyone.
I don't have to pay for the drugs and I am never without it.
It's something that is really getting old but I am addicted. I have been on and off for a couple years now. Almost three actually. I am a baby when I withdrawal and it's not something I want to do. I had some methadones but they didn't really help. I feel like I'm stuck doing this.

It is your body giving you a message. It is best to listen.

Your not stuck doing anything, your brain is a power-full device if you choose to point it in the proper direction.

I've shot dope countless times but i never had that happen. My suggestion would be to stop shooting dope. Sooner than later this itchy outbreak will be the least of your worries if you keep banging that ****.

sounds like your body is rebelling. stop before your body shuts down. that would be a real rock bottom.
