I hope you will contact your physician and be honest with them about your methamphetamine use. You have to be as open and honest as you can about everything so they can help you. You need an extensive physical in order to know what damage has already been done and your physician will be able to guide you from there. I understand how scared you are, your body is trying to tell you something right now and you need to find out what it is. Your meth use has to stop and I think you know that. Your physician will help and if not, there are other doctors. Good luck and let us know how you're doing.

I have scoliosis, in remission of cervical cancer, irregular heart beat (beats too fast), ulcers, endometriosis, and possibly other medical conditions. I want to know if it's common for a person to have health problems after so many years of being clean from meth!

It's impossible to know if all of the health problems you're going through are a result of meth use but an irregular heartbeat is unfortunately one of the health complications associated with prolonged use. It's not uncommon for a person to begin experiencing health problems well after they stopped actively using meth and have been clean for an extended period of time.
