Customer Question

Hi two weeks ago last monday, I +
did something incrededibly stupid. I injected iv 150mg of methadone . It was a stupid attempt at suicide. Since then I have been staying at home. My legs ache and I am out of breath mostly. I fear I may have symptoms akin to that of a stroke. Am i going to start to feel better soon or should I go to A and E at the hospital? John

Hi John
It sounds more like a cardiac issue rather than a stroke.
You may have something called subacute bacterial endocarditis--infection on a heart valve
That's very serious and yes you do need to get to an A&E right away
Let me know if you need more information please
