My husband is an IV meth user and is currently

Patient : My husband is an IV meth user and is currently in quite a bit of pain, has a swollen forearm and has a fever and chills. He doesn't have any insurance, and thinks that these are normal symptoms of cotton fever. I'm worried about a blood clot or a possible infection that may lead to sepsis. Is he right or should I take him to the emergency room immediately?
