Congrats on 48 hrs!!  Keep those eyes focused on what is in front of you.  Progress happens when we step out of that comfort zone.  You can do this!

Hi Win.

What are you coming off of? If it is opiates, then yes you have the crawlies, I most certainly did, for a bit. I cannot tell you when it will stop, for me it was bad the first month. Hang in there. You can do it. How much were you taking and what were you taking?

I took lots of showers and had my dog lay on me.  I know how miserable it is but keep hanging in there as it does go away.  You are just about thru the worst of it.

Posts are for anyone don't feel bad at all we all need help.  I have been on h3re for a couple months trying to taper but I always caved I am very determined this is my time.  I have been taking norco 10 325 for 8 plus years and I am so tired of it these things are an ugly monkey.  I made it threw the day at work at the end of the day I was pretty sick.  I was taking 10 to 12 a day or if a rough day honestly I don't know how many I go threw 120 in about 10 days even when buying them when offered.  It's a real sick issue but I'm going to do it this time.  My question tonight would be I have to work my rls in hands and legs gets pretty bad and my bathroom issues as well are bad any ideas remedies?

Imodium worked well for me.  Also buy Hylands restful legs, its dissolvable tablets, works pretty good and of course hot baths help (when you get home from work).

Im a little over 4 days and today i have had the most relief. I was horrible this morning at work but half way thru i started feeling better and havent had the crawling since this morning. Knock on wood.... anyways i was actually able to eat today. First day since this started and that was scary because i felt like i was going to die from not eating. I hop3 i get sleep tonight since i have been non stop today. Bothing at all and i mean nothing would help the feeling in my arms except during a shower. Its the worst but today there is some hope. I hope it gives you hope as well. I am just so happy to have a ton of relief on day 4-5. Keep working hard pills are the devil and i cant wait til im completely back to normal.

Hi  congrats on day 3 ....your off to a great start  just know in a couple of days the phyical stuff will be over  then it is just a mental mindscrew   try to line up a couple of N/A meetings  it really helps with the mental part   this is 1/3 phyical and 2/3 mental a lot of people under estimate the mental/emotional part  and often it is the cause of relapse right now just focus on getting threw the day  we all do this ''just for today'' keep posting for support..........Gnarly

Arnica cream. Get one that is homeopathic. I got mine from Fruitful a Yield by me.  It works good. I have RLS bad without pills. I used it as a natural remedy.
