post vicodin overdose effects

im my past about 8th months ago i had a drug problem with vicodin. i was taking 5/500 about 5 at a time for 5 days, yes i realize it was stupid.
i overdosed about 5 times not knowing much about it which was stupid and i have never touched it since. well anyways i keep taking it until one day i couldn't urinate. but i didnt realize until a few days later the damage i did to my body ever since then ive had muscular spasms in all parts of my body every day 20-40times, my sense of taste,smell,and sexual pleasure have never been the same. i went to my doctor he said that it has to get out of my head and it may take a while, he prescribed cymbalta and said it would quicken the process but every time i have taken it i would vomit and get headaches. i have no idea why it still effecting me i never did any again in 8 months i do a lot of physical activity and drink loads of water. does anyone know of anything that i can take or help fix my body thank you or am i ******?

I think i am confused.....you od'd 5 times 8 months ago and you havent touched vicodin in 8 months?  I would be going to a Urologist pronto to have this checked out.

5 5mg at a time is not "that" much.  Why do you think your kidney problems are related to past vicodin use?

How do you know you OD'd?

Just to clarify, you said you were taking them for five days and you also overdosed five times? So did you overdose everyday for five days in a row? Or were these overdoses farther back in your past? I am sorry to ask so many questions I was just a bit confused by what you said. I have no medical background but I wouldn't think that using them for 5 days would cause all of these problems...do you think it could be caused by something else, or are you positive that the vicodin is the root of these new problems?
