I was in a motorcycle accident a year ago. I have been taking Vicodin ever since, now I am up to 8 to 10 a day.  I don't need them anymore for pain, I am just taking them to be taking them. Well I stopped taking them three days ago. Legs hurt, arms and back are sore, headaches and I just started with diherria. I have been taking Aleve to help with the soreness but they don't seem to be working very well. How long will I be feeling like this.

I can't really add much to r2r's post. She nailed it. A couple more days and you will be over the worst of the physical. Definitely try to walk becasue that will help with the energy. Oh and hot baths with epsom salt.

Take care and hang in there, it will get better in a day or two.
