Hi Hairy I really do not think you are experiencing paws although 4 a day sounds mild compared to some 15yrs is not.. Sleep is usually the last to return. It may take 6 weeks to 3 months to really feel you are beating this maybe a lil longer I hope not but we are all different. In the mean time you will feel slight improvements along the way. Walking eating healthy and keeping hydrated will benefit towards healing, 15 years is a long time to expect to feel well in 3 short weeks. Acupuncture can help it did with my neck but the help was so little that it was not worth my time This is just my experience I hope it is better for you! I wish you the best, lesa
Congrats for making a change. As 10356 said , it takes time,
Eat healthy , exercise even if its a a walk to the mailbox and back, hot baths , and vitamins, lots of water. On the paws ,not everyone gets that, im on my 500 days clean , and never once felt them , A strong positive attitude helps a TON. Keep goin at it. you got thi.s
I've learned everyone is different, like soul didn't have any issues at all. I think age has a lot to do with it too. Being almost 50, opiates 'masked' issues that naturally arise - aches, tiredness, etc. Also, I always thought methadone made my eyes lazy (as everything else) however my eyesight was just getting bad ;) Time does heal though and ask anyone here, I didn't believe that the first few months... Oh, and a steam room / sauna was the only 'help' I found - and I tried EVERYTHING hehe
Yes there will be good days and bad most definitely! It will be a bit of a roller coaster ride. Little by little there should be more good days then bad. Don't give up!
Ps. Take 10356's advice on taking care of yourself (movement, protein &vitamins). Your post said you are not getting proper nourishment - your body needs vitamins/nutrients to heal. It won't feel like a miracle pill but it will help more than you know. And movement or exercise really is the best way to create natural dopamine (I need to take my own advice on this one so trust me I know how hard that is!)
