Hi. I'm day 13 and am still having a ton of rebound pain. But I took pills for 2 years. Lots of hot baths have helped. The hylands restful legs too. I also use a heating pad. Seems to get a little better every day tho. Now its mostly late afternoon and evening. Hang in there. It does get better.
Hi! The worst of physical wd symptoms do get better after about 4 days, but it takes a while for your body to recognize real pain and rebound pain. The opiates knocked out your bodies natural ability to fight off pain naturally, so it takes a bit for your brain to balance out. Opiates can create rebound pain, meaning that when the pain comes back after the opiates wear off, the pain is more intensified. It can take a couple weeks or more to know where your real pain meter is at. But I hear you on the upset tummy from the OTC pain meds. LOL!
Just give it some more time....
Read up on the Thomas recipe, perhaps it will help, not to downgrade your symptoms, but 4 months isn't a long time. If you were taking the pills for an illness for either one of the problems you mentioned earlier than that would make more sense. I was on them for 12 years and the first 6-7 months my withdrawals weren't severe. Like I said, I am not ruling it out. Everybody is different. However, talk to your doctor and make sure there isn't something else wrong. I have to be honest, don't take this offensively and be patient because someone else may give you better advise.
