Keep fighting the good fight, Brother!
Congrats on your decision to get your life back. Step 1, out of the way. You've admitted that your life is unmanageable and you are powerless over your addiction to morphine.
Have you looked up the "Thomas Recipe"? That will help a great deal with the w/d symptoms. RLS is a b*tch, I can attest to that. Epsom salts work great, so go get some and take a nice, long, hot bath. As hot as you can stand it, and just soak, before you hit the sack.
You've come to the right place dude... onward and upward!
You didnt say how long you were taking the morphine. If it was a long time (6 months or more) and I'm assuming you were taking the drug orally, You would benefit a lot if you went into a 30 day inpatient detox.
If you think that you can do it at home without any professional help,Tonic water contains quinine which will relieve the RLS there is also an over a otc ned called Hylands Leg ease it's really good for the RLS also. Otherwise your doc will need to prescribe Requip. the other symptons will work e.g.Immodium for diarrhea, They make an otc drug that will stop the urge to throw up. The worst physical symptoms start around 12 hours after your last dose of morphine and usually start to subside 36-72 hours. Your doctor can prescribe subutex to ease the symptoms,but it's addictive too. So a lot of people say that your just substituting one habit for another, Although the subutex w/d's are less severe.
My advice, (for what little it's worth) is to go thru inpatient detox. You come out 30 days clean. Now the mental part; thats another story. I can see a picture of a dilaudid a just for a second it still crosses my mind. Stay strong
Sorry, I meant to say that after 10 years clean it still crosses my mind. But you can do it a lot of people have and there no different from you. Good luck.
welcome here : ......try all the remedies on the thomas recipe for the RLS... plus ice or hot badges ... i found that one of those ice gels that refresh and lighten the legs helped a little with RLS on my legs and arms, plus the mineral suplemments ( chelated magnesium, potassium ) plus Hylands restful legs,... tonic water ( it has quinine on it and can help ) .. keep drinking fluids and load yourself with valerian root ( it helped me a lot with the anxiety and the stomach cramps ) ...immodium for the diarrhea... and do take a hot bath with epsom salts as ELMN has told you
hang in, sis... we are here with and for you, ok ? good luck ! and yeah, the mental stuff can drive us crazy but it will pass too
