This is yet another withdrawal symptom. Here's a few more of the more common ones..
Dilated pupils, diarrhea, runny nose, goose bumps, abdominal pain,        sweating, agitation, nausea, and vomiting. It will get better with time!!

I have no idea how long it would last.The only certain thing about WD symptoms is that everyone's symptoms seem to resolve at different speeds. I'd say it would last no longer than a week after you finally quit all opiates.
