I took cocaine Saturday night/Sunday morning. I feel fine now but since yesterday afternoon parts of my hands turn blue sometimes - if this dangerous or will it go away on its own?

I don't usually do this but I was so drunk so my friend wanted to sober me up

Are you able to help? Thanks

I am OK as I've woken up today feeling completely normal so I hope it will just go away on its own. But obviously if you google it you get lots of scary answers so I wanted to check. Please can this remain confidential?
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 10 months ago.
Thanks for reply.This drug turns your hemoglobin into deoxygenated state so that your body do not gets enough oxygen so it turns blue. This is called methemoglobinemia. This can be serious if amount of deoxygenated hemoglobin is so much that you start feeling shortness of breath. I would suggest you to go at urgent care to be on safe side for checking your oxygen saturation and if you do not have other symptoms you just need monitoring.Let me know if you have further questions.

Dr I'm sorry to bother you again, by chest pain do you also mean on te collar bone? It hurt there a bit yesterday but I thought this was from having the shortness of breath?
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 10 months ago.
any tightness in the chest or heaviness or pain along chest jaw or left arm means your heart is not getting enough oxygen.
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Thank you. Is there anything I can do to improve this? Or do I just have to wait and see if it goes?
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 10 months ago.
try to breath in fresh air and take deep breaths.Best.
