Withdrawal symptoms for pain meds
My husband has been on strong pain meds for about a year now.  My question is this...He has had 2 seizures in the last month CT scan shows no abnormalities he has body aches,chills,insomnia and nausea.  Could these be symptoms of withdrawal.  He has stopped taking all of his pain meds and I am at my wits end and have no clue how to help or what to do.  How long do the withdrawal symptoms last.  Can some one please help me.

Yes it can be withdrawal symptoms. For me to provide you with the best answer possible I must know what medications were used and what he can do to improve his situation.

It's a safe bed to say 1 month of withdrawal symptoms when quitting cold turkey.
