I want to reach out and give you a hug.  I am 43.  I just tapered for 4 months, then went to detox and rehab.  Is there any chance you can taper?  Can you go to a medical detox?

Hugs

I just wanted to say hi and welcome you to the forum. At the very least, can you go to your doctor and explain what is going on and maybe get some help? Of course, you have already made it 5 days which is quite an accomplishment. I don't know about the health ramifications of stopping all of it cold turkey but since you have come this far you may just have to ride out the worst for another couple of days. I am sure others with more knowledge will post soon. In the meantime, hot showers and soaks in Epsom salts will give you some relief. Gatorade, Vitamin Water or Powerade will help replenish nutrients. Immodium is great for tummy troubles. The generic will work just as well.

Please keep posting and feel free to vent or just say what's on your mind. We'll be here.

Peace and blessings to you,

Minn
