Right now, my immediate health concern is that I am experiencing prolonged acute withdrawal syndrome (50 days today, 5/5/13). Went cold turkey off a variety of meds, used for chronic pain, anxiety, depression, insomnia. I'm thinking something's not right because I'm
[More] still so sick. The worst sickness with opiate withdrawal detox usually lasts 4-7 days...I'm on day 50 of what feels like severe withdrawal symptoms, with little to no improvement. I'm here for some answers, advice, experiences since my docs don't seem to know what's up, and meanwhile I'm not sleeping, eating much, have high anxiety, lost 30 lbs....just feeling miserable. I'm here, hoping someone can look at this with fresh eyes or from personal experience because this has been almost 2 months of agony! Right now, this sickness overwhelms anything else I can tell you about me. I look forward to the day when I am more than just my illness.
