Thanks morphing
So far the dr wants me to watch my sugar intake so I have and I still feel light headed I guess I need to give it time not sure. I hope what I'm feeling isn't some type of paws cause it's starting to drive me nuts!

Almost 3 months clean and I'm feeling great!!
My dr put me on Wellbutrin for my anxiety and it drove me crazy.
Now that it's out my system I feel so much better and I also gave up my beers
And u think that played a huge role on my recovery.

Yeah! So glad to hear from you and really glad you are feeling better! I had a similar experience with wellbutrin. It was a scary experience but if it works I hear it's a great anti depressant and stop smoking aid.

Thanks for updating! It's always good to hear from you!

Hey everyone just wanted to check in
I have not took any opioids in about six months
I was doing great then paws kicked in and I didn't know what it was.
After tons of er visit and dr appt I finally met with someone for my anxiety
And this sick like flu symptoms that come and go.
It's been crazy and I'm sure my family thinks I'm crazy too lol
But now that I understand this feeling will come and go within a couple hours r a day are too I can deal and not freak out lol.
It's just so weird after 6 months you kinda forget your body is still healing and it takes time.

Thank you for updating us PG! I'm sorry you've developed PAWS, but it's great that you're getting a handle on dealing with the symptoms. You said you went to see someone. Do you have an addiction therapist who is helping you find tools to deal with the PAWS? You have so many days behind you and it can only get better!

Amy

Hi portlandgirl

I also love that you come back with updates.

Did you have anxiety after you stopped 6months ago? When did PAWS start for you?

I too am sorry your getting hit with this now but you are one tough cookie and smart to!! What symptoms would send you to the ER?

Glad you found a solution and hope this is short lived!

Thanks for the update PG.
I'm toward the end of my day 11 off of my 16mg a day sub jump. It's awesome to read of how far you've come. Try not to let the PAWS drive you to crazy. You are an inspiration to me. You and Qom and Amy and Rule. Alot of insightful folks here to help me i believe. My Day 10 start was horrible and i got put on Clonidine 0.1mg patch. After seeing my Primary Dr.Its helped with the anxiety and Restlessness some. But it has also sapped all energy from my body. Keep on going strong PG. I hope you continue to update. .Thank you
