I am no expert, but I really doubt that is still withdrawal symptoms after 2 months off of them.  Sounds like something else is going on.  If it's still going on tomorrow or is really unbearable, go see a doctor.  Just try not to panic.  Easier said than done, right?  That's usually my first response to things like that and it never does any good.

Is it possible all this is happening because i quit them, and did not cut down?

I don't really know but I doubt it.  You say you haven't taken any in two months?  I am only on day 10 without and I didn't cut back.  I took about 10-15 10/325 hydros or 9-10 15 mg oxys a day for a couple years and just went cold turkey.  I feel much better and haven't heard of anyone experiencing that kind of pain 2 months later.  You said 1000 mg?  I think you mean 10mg-  Norcos are the 10mg hydrocodone 325 mg acetimenophen.  Hope this helps.

Kratom (Mitragyna speciosa) is a medicinal leaf harvested from a large tree native to Southeast Asia in the Rubiaceae family, first documented by Dutch colonial botanist Korthals. It is botanically related to the Corynanthe, Cinchona and Uncaria genera and shares some similar biochemistry. It is in the same family as coffee and the psychoactive plant Psychotria viridis. Other species in the Mitragyna genus are used medicinally in Africa, and also used for their wood.

Kratom is used for its psychoactive effects in its native region, with growing use elsewhere in the world. It is grown widely in Indonesia for the dried herb trade. In Southeast Asia the fresh leaves are usually chewed, often continuously, by workers or manual laborers seeking a numbing, stimulating effect. Less commonly, the leaves are decocted or extracted into water and then evaporated into a tar that can be swallowed. Kratom is not often smoked, although this method does provide some effect.

Kratom contains many alkaloids including mitragynine (once thought to be the primary active), mitraphylline, and 7-hydroxymitragynine (which is currently the most likely candidate for the primary active chemical in the plant). Although structurally related to yohimbine and other tryptamines, its pharmacology is quite different, acting primarily as a mu-opioid receptor agonist. It also shares some adrenergic receptor activity similar to that of yohimbine. Kratom also contains alkaloids found in uña de gato, which are thought to play a beneficial role on the immune system and lower blood pressure, as well as epicatechin, a powerful antioxidant also found in dark chocolate and closely related to the EGCG that gives green tea its beneficial effects. Other active chemicals in kratom include raubasine (best known from Rauwolfia serpentina) and some yohimbe alkaloids such as corynantheidine.
