That sounds like a stroke or pluerasea(sp) where one side of the face goes numb with no stroke. But I would be getting him to a doctor or even ER asap!!!

It could b bells palsy? Sp? IMO he also needs a rehab! But he has to want it for it to work. Hes on a very dangerous path and shooting pills can and Will kill him. They aren't meant to b shot there are too many fillers in them. I'm a heroin addict and I was also shooting it but I never shot pills bc of tht reason . Please tell the Dr everything when u go! Make sure they kno the real reason for y ur there. Tht way they can help him. Pls keep us updated and I wish u and ur son the best

Just for future reference, those kinds of symptoms should be addressed immediately!!!  If it indeed WAS a stroke (which he would be at risk for, injecting pills), the sooner he is seen, the better the chance the medical team could intervene and try to minimize any permanent deficits.  That should have prompted an urgent ER visit.

Hope all goes well, I'll be anxious to hear what they find.  Sure hope it's not a stroke.

Ive seen this happen MANY times with people who shoot/inject cocaine. Don't know why it does it but it does. Its usually when its shot in large amounts. You said you found needles and spoons so it could be what happened. Hopefully you get it figured at the doctors.
