Hi and welcome to the forum! The worst part of the WD.'s last about 72 hours. Take a lot of hot baths! Also you can try the Thomas Recipe to help you through this. Make sure to drink plenty of fluids and keep your mind busy by reading or watching a funny movie. You may be having trouble sleeping and this is part of the WD- I took Melatonin which is a natural herb and you can find it where the vitamins are.
Good luck and keep us posted! God Bless

The worst of this will be around the 3rd or 4th day.  There is a ton of info in the health pages here.  Take some warm baths for the aches and pains.  Drink plenty of fluids, no caffeine, and try and eat bland foods.  Immodium will help with the diarrhea if you have that.  Stay positive and keep posting on here.        sara
