aching legs and back!!!!

  Hey everyone, today is the 7th day off methadone for me, and I have like THE WORSE aches ....like in my bones, it's not like the rls.  It just totally feels like it's my bones in my lower back, hip bones and really deep in my knees.  It hurt sooooo BAD last night I was crying!  Have any of you had this?  The rls has calmed down now...it's just the horrible aches that feel so deep in my bones.  Tried hot baths with epsom salt, been taking my vitamins,  motrin, benadryl, hylands leg cramps, I've used my heating pad so much I burned it up..lol...so far nothing has helped. Oh, I've even been walking 3-5 miles everyday.  Do any of you know of anything that will help and has this happened to you?  Thanks in advance!......Teri  :)
