Numbness at first time use of meth

djiyoo Numbness at first time use of a bit of meth
My girlfriend swallow meth at the very first time. She only took a little bit and no more after that. After 2 days, her left side of her body felt numb. We went to the doctor and take a blood check. I didn't see the result, but she told me that the meth trigger her stroke because her body is so vulnerable and she needs to get a stroke treatment. She still feel numb on her left side after almost a week.
My question is, how bad can a small amount of meth can effect your body?
Is it normal that numbness? How long that numbness gone?
Since she never show me the result, does she lie about the stroke?
Anyone have any suggestion....

did she do something all night with that hand, like draw light a lighter, knit, scrub..............any repetitive action?
that'll do it too.

Meth causes blood pressure and heart rate to increase. This can cause a stroke.
Re: Numbness at first time use of a bit of meth
I have heard of this and it actually happened to me. My left little finger went numb and then half of my left hand a week later, it stayed numb for 6 months. I asked around and it happened to several other people as well.
Re: Numbness at first time use of a bit of meth
Meth can cause strokes. I had an old friend that I heard had a major stroke after using. He was a heavy user, but since it raises blood pressure and heart rate, it could be possible.

Possibly a TIA stroke?
A transient ischemic attack (TIA) is a transient stroke that lasts only a few minutes. It occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is briefly interrupted. TIA symptoms, which usually occur suddenly, are similar to those of stroke but do not last as long. Most symptoms of a TIA disappear within an hour, although they may persist for up to 24 hours. Symptoms can include: numbness or weakness in the face, arm, or leg, especially on one side of the body; confusion or difficulty in talking or understanding speech; trouble seeing in one or both eyes; and difficulty with walking, dizziness, or loss of balance and coordination.

I've heard of this happening before.
It can happen without meth, but the incidence may increase with meth use. Just a guess on my part, however.
One of my close family members had a TIA stroke without meth.

I watched a show about a 15 year old Indian girl who died when she used meth for the first time. I think she had a stroke, but I can't remember for sure. She complained of a headache and then she was dead.

Her mom's friend stopped by looking for her mother. Her mother wasn't home so she offered to let her try some meth.

It's real easy to eat too much meth!
A friend who ingested meth orally, supposedly for the first time, ended up in ER and was flown unconscious to ICU in Spokane where he spent a few days, two of his "friends" who provided him with this wonderful experience also went to ER.
Leo was out to lunch following his release from the hospital, he went down hard!
Including falling and smashing his face on the tile floor of the ER.
What appears to be a "bit" of meth when taken orally may be a whole lot more than it appears, particularly the high test "ICE" we're seeing more of.
In Leo's case it most certainly was.

One IS too many!

I agree with Danimal.
For those who are not familiar with meth, it can appear to be much less than it really is.
A gram of meth, which is enough to last many addicts a week or so is a great amount. A quarter gram is even huge.

A gram is about the size of a sugar cube.
