How is tapering off feel on the Duragesic patch?

I'm down to 75, and have been for a couple weeks.  Some things are settling down which is good.
However, are having sharp pains going through my legs supposed to be normal?  I mean its a new symptom I've had ever since I started tapering six weeks ago, and If  any one has an idea I'd be grateful.
By the way I enjoy other's input, advice, and comments through the whole forum.
And I can understand a lot of what other's like me are going through.
At least we are all hanging in there fighting with all we got.

Thank you.

When I first lowered my dose of Duragesic I had no leg pain, but I did have breathing problems. Are you excercising?

I am no doctor but the leg pain might be very normal.  I know I had lots of leg and lower back pain for a while.  Although I didn't taper, I went c/t.  I would be willing to bet that its normal though.
