17 days-still a bit shaky

well i'm on day 17 drug free.  Due to the muscle spasms, I was only sleeping about every other night out of exhaustion, after experimenting with teas, over-counter sleep aids (diphenydramine) my doctor gave me Flexaril (muscle relaxer) and that helped a lot. The first night I took 2, the next only 1 and the last 2 days only 1/2 an I have had good sleep for 4 nights, but the stuff makes you groggy the next day.  I'm hoping I can sleep tonight without it, ior maybe just 1/4 pill.  I'm hoping I'm close to the end for this nervous-muscle twitchy thing.  I heard that 3 weeks was about the average, is that sound about right?  thanks TC
