  • i used for fifteen years on and off trust me its the DOPE thank you unregistered;208036 for the feedback. I'm wise to the effects of drugs. what shows the opposite of intelligence is the abuse and neglect i inflect on myself. still, with all i know, use anyway. insanity: worst of all side effects next to death. what i was\am not sure of is the exact cause. did i become toxic and with the weakened immune system that long term use provides allowed an infection to start? could the infection been because of the wisdom teeth, again do to the lowered immune system? the swelling: due to teething or is it a lymph node problem? possibly trauma to the jaw from grinding and became inflamed? i realize these questions cannot be answered to any kind of certainty from forums or Internet searches. i would be given the same list i just wrote. i was trying to find ways to decrease dangers of the effects or remedies to counter/delay side effects while I'm bringing this runaway train to a stop. again, thanks-god bless.pech

I'll say it again. "seeking remedies for side effects and dangers from meth use until i am able to get the help i need". i know touchy-touchy. but when the whole forest is missed for the first tree that is noticed, it helps not. i don't think of you on a highhorse or anything like that. and by you even writing shows you care or at least concerned. i do thank you for that.also, there is no way to rationalize insanity. believe as you will but i have no illusions of what is at stake. pech

  • Man why do people respond with no answers? Ok so yeah u need a dentist and the dope is probably feeding the pain. You're saliva is like battery acid. Drink a lot of water. Force yourself. Set alarms to remind yourself. That will help most of your symptoms. Sleep with tooth protector like an athlete. Flush face is tough but icepack feel vgood and avoid a super hot shower. remember - the symptoms are also part of the fun. If its not fun anymore you need to take a weekend and sleep

  • Not sure about how i feel about someone who hallucinates and is desperate being told to drink a lot of water to help drug symptoms. It is possible to actually drink too much water and misbalance the electrolites in the body... then a highly dangerous condition. Drinking A LOT of water may not be healthy. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_intoxication.... As you are already the aware, the way to stop symptoms is to seek help in overcoming the addiction. There are no simple answers.

  • I think using meth is the reason why you are suffering from these stuffs. What meth addicts forget is that there are effects followed by bad aftershocks. The mildest side effects include paranoia, irritability and anxiety. When meth abuse is more severe, it can make the addicted individual violent due to extreme paranoia, suffer from permanent psychosis or be at risk of heart failures or strokes. Even the smallest doses of meth can lead to addiction and serious dependency, which is why crystal meth abuse should never be taken lightly. seek the help of your doctor and look for the right and reliable crystal meth treatment to help you recover from it.

  • the transparency of most of these replies is hilarious, yet not surprising.pech, you seem incredibly intelligent. you seem to truly know the ultimate cause of your various afflictions, but are allowing the psychologically powerful vices of meth limit the due process of reasoning. this is in my opinion, and my pet rock's extensive experience with meth, the dealbreaker of the contract both you and my pet rock signed upon first use of the drug.long story short: a year's passed since your post, and i'm casually curious as to what has come of pech's musings.

  • This is an old post, but I thought I'd add my input in case anyone is reading this for information.Grinding and clenching can lead to A LOT of mouth, tooth, head, neck, back, digestive, and subsequently, anxiety and/or paranoia of one's health.That your wisdom teeth came in at age 29 is a little odd, but could be a result of the grinding/clenching.Over brushing and flossing of the teeth can lead to gum recession, which may also be the reason you are seeing your wisdom teeth.In all, I think all of the problems you mentioned are a result of over brushing and grinding/clenching. Google search this for more info and all the problems both of these cause.Definately wear a night guard, and ease up on the oral hygene! The tip about adequeate hydration is very good and actually helpful.There have been studies showing that amphetamine and methamphetamine use can interfere with the brain's ability to regulate one's body temperature. In a few cases, this dis-regulation can be perminent. This could also be a thyroid issue, but halting the meth use would be the fastest way to find out and could spare you many unnecessary Dr's visits and lab tests. There are many alternatives to meth for energy/excitement/escape that will not have the same negative side effects you have been experiencing. Most are legal and many do not require a doctor's prescription. Good luck with your health issues!
