Customer Question

I spoke with another doctor yesterday who said he thought I had methemoglobinemia after cocaine use sat/sun. He said that as my only current symptoms were that maybe once an hour parts of my hands were going good a bit blue/purple that I could monitor this at home. Now I'm reading stuff online and it's worrying me. My hands are hardly changing anymore but can this really get better alone or do I need treatment? I feel fine otherwise. I do t want to be dying slowly and not realising it :( was worried about losing my job if I attend hospital but am more worried now I've read that it can be fatal. Please help me

One of the veins in my right hand is slightly bulging/swollen. It has been slightly painful Since yesterday but the vein has only changed recently. Is that still ok?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.
yes, that is still ok.it is not a sign that you are dying slowly or will die.you can use a cold compresses on your hands to decrease swelling and pain.
