The Diagnostic Process

Based on your response to this question, which may indicate either past methamphetamine use or methamphetamine use, The Analyst™ will use differential diagnosis to consider possibilities such as:
Addictions / Addictive Tendencies

Addictions / Addictive Tendencies also suggests the following possibilities:

Nervous Breakdown Tendency

Drug abuse – in particular cocaine use – is a predisposing factor for having nervous breakdowns.

Dry Mouth

'Meth Mouth' is involves an excessively dry mouth ('cotton mouth'); cavities; decaying or rotting teeth; brittle or loose teeth; tooth cracking and breakage; and eventual tooth loss.

Dry Mouth also suggests the following possibilities:

Periodontal Disease - Gingivitis

Saliva helps fight the bacteria that cause gum disease and tooth decay.

Yeast / Candida Infection

Oral thrush thrives more easily in a dry mouth.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Frequently, people with PTSD use drugs or alcohol to avoid trauma-related feelings and memories.
