Not sure hun.  Everyone is different so it's hard to say.  When did you take your last pill?  Was it yesterday morning?

Drink lots of gatorade as there is potassium in it and it is good for leg pain.

Hi hope and congrats on your decision to get clean. The legs are pretty damn horrible the first week or so, but you can do it. Tomorrow will be day 14 for me, so yes you can do it.
It will get worse before it gets better, but that is the reason that you hopefully prepared.
Thomas recipe
Immodium (a must)
Lots of hot baths/showers.
Try and and relax, listen to some music, funny movies, and a very important part for me was, reading this site and keep posting.
It took my mind off things to keep posting, and so much support, inspiration and lov is found on this site.
Good luck and best wishes

Yeah like Free says you may be through the worst. Don't be alarmed if you are hit with a few more waves of it because they come in and then pass.
It may not even happen but just relax if they do. Make sure you are drinking lots of fluids and especially the gatorade for the potassium.
You are doing great sweety.  So happy for you.
