I am new here and joined because I quit smoking on January 10, 2016. Ever since, I have felt worse than I have when I was smoking. I have read a lot about quitter's flu, but am wondering if the severity of mine is normal.
I am freezing cold with the chills, and get pale and feverish, then it passes. It's like I feel fine one minute, and a few hours later I'll be flu-like again. I developed a raspy voice only after quitting, but haven't been coughing that much. I also noticed that my bowels have gone really bad. I have terrible gas, so much that it hurts, with light colored/yellow stool. This also only started after I quit. I have also been really panicky, but that's to be expected.
I feel exhausted. My eyes burn and are red, and I'm having rib pain. Nausea so bad it's hard to eat anything, and when I do, I get diarrhea.
Has ANYONE had anything even remotely similar to this?
