Swollen ankles after doing heroin?

Every once in a while when SWIM smokes heroin his feet and ankles get really swollen. Looking back, SWIM remembers certain instances when he thought that he was getting an allergic reaction to the grass in the park from walking his dog, but now he's starting to think it was because of the oxy habit he had at the time. Has anyone else heard of swelling ankles from smoking oxy or heroin? This swelling isn't due to an injection site, and even if swelling does occur when shooting it (almost positive it only happens when smoking, although memory could be fuzzy) SWIM only shoots in his arms, and the swelling always occurs in the ankles and is never associated with swelling in any other part of the body, injection site included.

The swelling is pretty bad sometimes, and sometimes lasts for over a day, could this be dangerous?

Re: Swollen ankles after doing heroin?

Sounds like Oedema, or water retention. Google it. Could be associated with poor venous return or a heart problem, but it's probably not that serious. Google, google, google.

Post Quality Evaluations:
Excellent answer, and yes, it's good to encourage people to do their own research.
