    Most of the effects that you describe during the incident could be attribute to the crystal meth. Although you may have used this drug previously, this could have been a “bad trip”. Crystal meth stimulate the CNS while benzodiazepines have the opposite effect.

    You may have strained your heart to a significant degree during this episode and could have even caused permanent damage. This may explain the breathlessness that you are experiencing for weeks afterwards assuming that you did not use either drug since.

    You should see a doctor and undergo necessary tests like an ECG. Also consult with a drug counselor.

    Death is always a possibility when using an illicit drug. Even if you think you know how much your body can handle, you can never be sure of the quality and quantity of the active ingredients in narcotics.
