need a little encouragment

I have been reading this for a few weeks. It has really helped but i decided i too would like the support and realized by posting i could get and give the same encouragement to and from others goitn through the same crap. Just a breif backround i have been on vic and perc's for a LONG time i was clean for 2 years then relapsed why idk because that was by far the BEST 2 yrs of my life i didnt go on them as bad this time but it has been about a year now.  I stopped my last vic 10 days ago but through this last weekend took some tramadol i only had 10 (i dont usually take tram but it seemed to help) HOWEVER i am sure it was a mistake so my last tram was on mon morning but over the weekend i had only taken a total of 10. Since monday late afternoon i have felt not so good. Some points were REALLY bad i am sureit was still from vic and the tram jsut covered it tues i did quite a bit of cleaning ( i also have a 10 month old) so i have no choice but to keep moving.Slept really well mon but last night was HELL i didnt sleep but maybe 2 hrs combined just because of RLS (restless legs) they come faithfully every night by 7 pm that is the WORSE symptom and seems to be the one that i have the most.Today didnt feel too motivated but still took care of my sweet boy (which is one of my major motivations for staying clean he deserves me to be clean) and I deserve it too.... anyway jsut wondering if anyone can tell me how long the restless legs and sleep issues went on for. I eat bannannas dont help i also take warm baths (which help me feel better but not w the RLS) i ahve tried the restless legs med from hyland TOTAL WASTE of money. What has gotten me through this is my faith in God and prayer i know if i pray he helps me immensly. But this RLS doesnt want to stop i would be feelign pretty good if it werent for this i even get it during the day if i sit too much. cant wait for life to be back to normal and i can sleep naturally again. I am inspired by all the strength and clean time on here jsut need a little encouragment thanks:)

Hi!  It won't last long.  You just have to remember that every time you take a pill, you're confusing your brain and it messes with your body.  Try some potassium by pill or apple juice and gatorade.  Have you tried epsom salts in your bath?  

I'm so happy you're going to be a clean mom for your little boy!  AND......for yourself!

I just went thru 10 days of h e l l with RLS!  Nothing seemed to work for me all the way.  Hyland's helped during the day some, but at night not at all.
Heat seemed to be the best.  Heating pad worked a bit better.  There are some non addictive prescriptions that do help.  My Dr. just renewed my script for carbidopa and man do I feel better.  She had been on vaca for a week and I had run out.  Really bad timing.  Thought I was going to go nuts.  there are others as well.  If you can go to your doc they might help out.  

Congrats on doing this is will be well worth it as I hope you already know.  :)

thanks i know it is going to be worth it and i am already feeling excited about it. I already have requip for the RLS and it hasnt seemed to help well at least not last night. I dont wish RLS on anyone. @ tram yes i do put epsom salt in my bath i even get RLS in the tub and have to get out. I am hoping to get some sleep tonight and have a MUCH better day today like i said i have been through this before but it was a long time ago I do remember having bad and good days but i know it is worth it to be off this crap. Again thanks for the comments it sure does help

well i slept form 9- midnight better than i thought from then on i would dose off but always wake up and as the monring got closer got REALLY bad RLS so got up at 4 and took a epsom salt bath. Time has went slow since my husband got ready fro work and left and i jsut felt like i was draggin laid my little boy down for a AM nap and did some cleaning but now jsut sitting down it is a catch 22 i know moving will make me feel better in the long run but doing so is so tiring even the thought i had my husband leave the stroller as we r gonna go for a little walk later not sure how long but it will be something. I always feel better after my shower but only for a bit. I just want to be better funny how when we dont feel good and going through detox we jsut want those results right away but we didnt care when we were using knowing what we were doing to ourselves. ANyway some insight would be nice i see lots of support on here but mainly for the ones that r REALLY struggling which i guess is prob the most important. But none of us should minimize what we r going through as we all have been in the "worse" of it. I am thankful i am through that part but this energy draining and no sleep and RLS can seem jsut as bad sometimes

Hi welcome here and glad that you posted....you are struggling too .. and you are fighting this the same as all so i guess you need the same support too... :) i would keep eating bananas, try also the tonic water, the quinine on it might help you but  if requip hasn't .. don't know, just don't stop taking all the things that usually helps with RLS, they might alleviate you even if it is a little...i also had a rough time with RLS and it sure is tiring and exhausting...and keep posting :)

thanks for the post and encouraging word laurel. Today was pretty interesting i have had bouts of rough times but i have FORCEd myself into doing things i took my son for a walk only about 20 min but it was something i also finished picking up the house. WHen i get to those moments and dont feel like i can do it no more my knees hit the floor i spend the whole day talking w God HE is my rock i know i would not be doing this if it wasnt for his help. I still like to have human interaction w this site but seems to fall back to the 2 and 3 pages and nobody is responding for the most part i think people think u have it at this point and there r others really ready to give up and that is the post that get consitrated on which i understand to a point i know what that feels like when ur so down u dont think u can do it and prob so many would have given up if it werent for people on here pushing them through. ANyway i appreciate the respnses. Being home all day w my 10 month old i feel like i have no interaction w anyone which can get hard i come to this site periodiaclly throught the day. I am hoping tonight is a bit better i could really use some sleep but i would give it up along w alot more if the restless legs would stop. Could anyone post how long that part lasted for them??? thanks

I feel for you newlifeahead. I was on Tramadol for over 2 years and restless legs was the worst withdrawal symptom. It seems like you have tried many things of the things I tried but I gotta tell you nothing helped me more than these two tips:

1. Right before going to bed, sitting with your legs straight and together, wrap a blanket or towell around them tight. I put the blanket or towel in the dryer for a few minutes so it was warm. Wear clothes that will keep your legs and feet warm.
2. One hour before bedtime, I used to take 3mg of Melatonin. This is a natural sleep aid that will help you through the first phase of your withdrawals at night but unlike the usual pm meds wont make you feel drowsy in the morning. You can find this over-the-counter at any pharmacy. The one I used to take also contained Valerian root, and passion flower extract and it was in the form of liquid soft gel.
3. Breathing exercises. It might sound silly but they help. Concentrate in your breathing, counting, vision yourself inhaling and exhaling. If possible get a track for relaxation, yes, the kind where a very soothing voice tells you you are in a beautiful place.

I hope these tips help you through. Keep in mind you are doing A BRAVE thing and you wont be in pain forever. By your post I can tell you are a warrior and keep active. You also have a very powerful reason to get clean.
Strenght! We can do this.

Hi and welcome :)
The only thing I don't think was mentioned regarding RLS that I heard helped was a heating pad..putting a pillow between or under legs and heating pad on top. Maybe give that a try. This gettin' clean is not easy but it is so worth it. Praying and having prayers said on my behalf helped more than I can say. I want you to know prayers are being said for you right now. Isn't is shocking.that you had two of your best years clean..how easy it is to forget. I need to stay close...here as well as in a recovery aftercare (AA, NA) for healing, also to make sure I don't forget (again) just how bad it is..how far I have fallen, and that it would only get worse if I had continued. I'm so glad you made the decision first for yourself..then for your family...oh your precious little boy does need a sober/clean Mommy. It's the best gift you can give yourself and your family.
God Bless You

@adictirecovery hey thanks so much for responding and ur post really helps as i read it at 4 am been up and out of bed since 3 but i cant complain i was soooo tired i went to bed at 8 last night and slept till 4 i was up about every hr for a little but it was sleep i soooo cant complain. I am feeling prettty ok right now my restless legs were so bad when i woke up i had to get up gonna go take a bath and YES i have heard a lot about the warm compresses and i have NOT tried that yet so i will hoping this lets up soon it seemed to be a bit better yesterday bless u and thanks @lgboy oh dont get me wrong it WAS worse and WAY worse i went through what u r going through and what we all do i just have some days behind me which i am truly thankful for... u WILL too if u stick it out i hope things get better for u and they WILL there is NO better life than a clean one not strapped to pills trust me my few years clean were by far my best years.... @ donewitis thanks and yes i have heard the heating pad but i have not tried it it sounds really good about now and i WILL try it thanks. Yes u r right about the after care i think i got too comfortable in recovery i lost 2 babies early in the 2nd trimester after a battle of infertility and i was started back on the meds for the pain i was in. So YES my sweet boy i waited SOOOO long for DOES deserve a clean mommy and i am sooooo tired of being chained down to these pills and my life revolving around refills and if i have enough to even be able to go out and grocery shop for my family it is a SICK thing, this time i WILL be staying in my aftercare which was celebrate recovery at my church and i WILL be depending on God the entire time i am not letting this slip away not again i have way too much and i am jsut tired of disappointing and being disappointed, Well thank u all for ur post i was really looking forward to coming on here and i REALLY needed the support while i am sitting in the dark w my husband and baby sleeping i needed some reminding to start my day and God bless u all and so glad WE ALL have decided to regain our life gonna go soak in the tub now

what it did the "trick" for me was cold instead of hot blankets.... i would stayed on the balcony wrapped in a blanket with my legs and arms out .... the cold from the night  was a reliever... later i found one of these ice gel creams and since i was getting colds from the balcony LOL, the gel worked better....anyway, this too shall pass and you will be ok ... :)

hi newlifeahead, im a mom of four and im on day two of my dettox from tramadol and codeine,it has been very harrowing and im so lucky not to have suffered so far from the leg problem,im just soooo tired and very depressed and anxious and every min is a literal battle to stop myself from delving into my bag of pills,my prob is that i can get them too easy and its not a matter of script running out,but my life is falling apart,i have a great husband and 4 amazing kids and im only 28,ive been using for 3 yrs and it started from a bad back(i know,pathetic),my life in the past year has been getting slowly worse and worse and ive been trying to delude myself into thinking its from everything else but me,but i was the only common denominator to all the problems,im soo glad ur doing this too and u have a lil boy,i feel proud of all users here who r doing this or have done it,its sooooo hard i wanna scream,the hrs seem to drag unbearably slow,i cant even think of leaving the house and wud luv to have the will power to overcome this fatigue thats killing me,i hope we can get thru this together and push each other forward everyday,we can do this especially since u know u did it before,,,,,,lets look forward to normality....ive forgotten what thats like.

thank u life2live this is a journey we all must take eventually after we have abused oursleves for so long it is NOT easy u can do it too:) hey desperate so great to hear from u. I HEAR u on the drained energy and all that todya i felt pretty good getting up but a couple hrs into the morning it got BAD i forced myself to get out we went to get baby's halloween costume i am looking forward to taking him trick or treating for his first halloween and i will be sober and hopefully have a bit more energy. Walking throught he store for over a hr then home i feel like i have been hit by a bus and they backed up and kept doing it i want to scream too.. it gets frusterating u know u have all these days behind u and the immediate bad sick things r gone but these lingering feelings of extreme tiredness gets old too. I had big hopes for the weekend i wanted to get my house all cleaned and get the garage cleaned out w my hubby for the winter so we can get the car in exchange summer clothes for winter ones and so on i keep looking at my house and all i can do is go sit down:( anyway it will get better and for u too congrats on day 2 u say it isnt the running out of pills for u i gotta say that shows A LOT  of strength because i think prob half or more stop because they r sick of trying to get them for u to have access AND still quit is GREAT.... it gets better i know because of past exp i just have to kkeep looking forward and my knees bent literally in prayer. U CAN DO THIS stay strong for those babies u r young i am only 30 so i know i have been battling this for a LONG time it was the best life ever when i was clean for over 2 yrs

LifetoLive: So often I read here about people getting clean and then refilling script and relapsing. I think it was Tramahater who made it sink in that if I didn't flush the pills, I was going to use again. I believed her and I got rid of them immediately after reading her comment. Another thing was calling 'the' Dr. I told her..that I no longer can be prescribed anything that is remotely addicting. After making that call while going through the w/d's, I was shocked at myself..but very quickly...grateful that I did it. It reinforced for me the fact that I was dependant on a bottle of pills and that I was  miserable. I am so thankful that they are not part of my life anymore. I have a choice today..haven't felt there were any choices for a long time. It's good.

We have church tommorrow REALLY looking forward to that i know it will help me. anyway i am gonna get off the puter it is going on 6 nd like clockwork the restless legs r kicking in i could jsut SCREAM i really wish that part would go away have a good rest of the evening i will check back later

Congrats to both of you on making it this far!

I too got the extreme fatigue and let me tell you that was so hard to deal with.  I thought I was going to die.  I ate bananas and apples for strength.  Caffeine is not good for withdrawals but the benefits of it outweighed the negatives for me - you will need to decide how it works for you.  I also drank my favorite drink as a reward - diet mountain dew.

I did not get the RLS as bad because I took Clonidine, a blood pressure medication that is well known in its effect on opiate withdrawal.  Everyone is different but it really helped me.  You need a prescription but I also know that people get it off the internet.  I would try to get it from a dr first.  It only cost me 10 dollars with my insurance.

Hang in there!

I also wanted to point out that I decided to go for it and give up cigarettes along with the Percocets that I had been on for 5 years.  I thought it would be easier to go thru hell all at once.

good afternoon my dear,i slept last night from 10pm till 4.30am then just woke and cudnt sleep again but im ok,i think its cuz i have no melatonin or any kid of sleeping aid but other wise day 5 seems to be pretty good,no foggy head,im all clear headed and a lil tiny sprouting of more energy i believe and i just wanna hug my amino acids and vits,lol,i dont have to list them all cuz there are quite  a few but its called the amino acid protocol,look it up it on this website and gives all the info on what each thing does,reading that made me more aware of why i needed them during withdrawal and recovery and it all makes sense and really and truly works a whole lot,plz trust me and buy the list even if it costs a bit cuzzzz its sooooo worth it.it gave me no RLS except for day 1 and 2 and after i started taken this stuff it was gone,and my anxiety wiped away just as quick,lol,im sounding dramatic but it has worked wonders in my case and im the worst one in ever following a protocol or any routine but i will be on this one,lol,....and by the way,,good for you making such an awesome supper for your family and doing so much with ur hubby,i cant wait to be buzzing about on a healthy and happy and normal high and buzz of real life again not the false rubbish buzz we lived for....hope you have a great and wonderfull day and never ever go back,im still being haunted by my mind that is still craving the pills but i hope and pray i never be dumb ever ever AGAIN.   God bless,
