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  :)

HI Teri your experiencing typical methadone withdrawal symptoms try adding potassium to the vitamins it should help other then that you just got to tuff it out and know it should only last a few more days typical methadone withdrawal is 7 to 10 days then it lets up the aches and pains can go just as fast as they came so dont loose face it all part of your recovery methadone is very cyclic just when you think you got it beat it comes back with a vengeance hang in there Teri your almost threw it now the energy crach is another story if you get that let me know your friend Mark
