Hi & Welcome :)
I see that you posted about 9 hrs. ago. If this is an infection from shooting up, it's really important that you get to an ER or see a Dr. ASAP. There's all kinds of nasty stuff that can happen if you wait too long: Endocarditis, MRSA, Pneumonia & Gangrene to name a few.
1) Are you running a fever?
2) Was the injection site near your thighs/groin?
3) How long ago did you inject?
4) Has the flushing been spreading since you noticed it? Is there swelling around the injection site or a red line leading away from it?
Back in my teen yrs. I had a couple of infections that literally almost killed me. We're not Dr.'s but swelling, spreading, redness & a fever would be pretty good indicators of an infection -- particularly if the initial site is nearby.
If this is the case time is of the essence & I urge Have yourself checked out. It may be something else completely but better safe than sorry, eh?
Any thoughts on how to prevent another relapse? What do you think led you back there? 6 yrs. Clean is Awesome, btw! If you put the breaks on now, you could be back there soon enough.
Please, let us know how you're doing! :)
You've been on my mind and I came back to check if you posted and saw the awesome post by Evolver. She gave you some great advise. I have had some nasty abscesses back in the day and like it was mentioned, they were/are dangerous and I was deathly sick from them. Like we both said, you need medical attention. I am praying for you hun and hope you get back here to talk with us.
