With that amount, probably about 5 days of physical withdrawal. By day 4 you should start to feel better.

Thanks, this is my first time, on any on of these sites and the though of being an addict is shameful. I work as a therapist will graduate in May with my doctor degree in pastoral counseling/psychology. So it was so shameful when my doctor told me he found out that I was getting my pills from him and my surgeon. I just had lower back surgury on Tuesday, the doctors treated me like a criminal, calling me shamefull and a disgrace. belief me it was so hard to hear. thanks for listening

I agree with IBkleen. I was told to exercise and take hot baths for muscle pain of wds. The exercise is hard (I just let my dogs pull me along until I feel like going at my comfortable speed) Exercise helps to work the muscles and burn off toxins. My opinion . It helps me.I hope you feel better. If you don't pick up I promise it will get better.

Ok, I am low dose user of hydro under script.  I found this forum because I was taking 2 vics a day for frozen shoulder for several months and realized I was dependent.  I detoxed to see how my body felt and after a couple of weeks started back up on low - dose.  Then I had surgery a couple of weeks ago and thought I would be upping the dose and never did - was given a script for 6 to 8 per day and never took more than 2 over a period of about a week.  Then I stopped.  Haven't taken anything for 7 days.

had a little diarrhea around day 3

sleep is kinda crummy - but I am 55 and sleep has been kinda crummy since I hit 50.  I usually take 1/2 of a trazadone  (script is for 1 to 3 before bed)

a bit sniffly and sneezy.

I think I had some mid-back pain related to the hydro

now - i still have chronic pain issues [undifferentiated Ankylosing spondylitis] and will be going in to discuss with my rheumy long term treatment. So I have stiff neck, back pains, fibro type pain in abdomen, ETC.

Ok - so do i feel like using?

yes.

am I craving drugs?

no.

I plan to give my body more time without hydros to find out my true levels of pain due to my condition.
