I DID IT I GOt off Fent. Patches now when will the real me come back

SO I DID IT FREE FROM FENTENYL>>>>>>> BUT .....READ ON

I mean before a long time ago, I stoped taking pain pills, for pain, and with in a few days I was back to myself.  Energy, happy, able to sleep, ya know.
Now , it is just nuts,
After  taking Fentenyl for only like 6 months, I had people telling me, oh it's nothing, no big deal,
you will be fine. then.  Still I feel like I am so not my self, NO energy, NO sleep, (I am actually scard of going to sleep because of the agervation of it all) feeling for the first time, chest pain, they say the ekg is normal, now
was not normal at the hospital, but is normal now.  I have never had ANXITY, never, and I will be doing nothing just sitting, or somthing, easy like that, then tightness in my chest,
I have low blood preassure, so I feel weak,
I eat Organic, and try to put in all of the live energy filled foods,
I just can't imagan how long this will last,
also crazy racing thoughts, about the past, and lots of fear based stuff from the projected future, crazy huh.
I don't drink, or smoke,
I started thinking maybe I should start drinking red wine at night?
If I go to the doc. now, what do I say, I gave up the pain meds, now I feel terrible anxity, then I get benzo, pills which I have never taken, and poof another problem,
this *****...
I want to treat my sympt. with natural herbs, and life change, like meditation, and yoga, Sunshine therapy.
Help how long is this Crazy not me feeling going to last, I took the last patch off my arm 14 days ago.
Peace and power to all those in the fight for freedom, it is in you to be free,
Christine

When I detoxed cold turkey off hydro I was pretty screwed up for about 14 days, and then it got slowly better.Everyone is different.I do not know anything about your doc but sounds like your doing everything you can at the moment.Try and get out for a walk and treat yourself good for awhile.2 weeks is awesome.I would think you are close to the end.Hope things get better soon.

i have a friend on the fenatyl patches and she goes through hell because they never give her enough. i have heard that is a tough one to quit and hard to recover.
so it has probably messed with your brain , right.
i know the amino acids really help the brain to heal faster. especially the l-glutamine.
have you tried taking those?

also i did the glass of wine on bad evenings when i was weaning down from vicodins.
it helped to calm me down and sleep.

and this herbal tea called nighty night was a good calmer too. i was experiencing the same like panic feelings even though i was doing absolutely nothing physically. if you want to try the herbal teas for that and there are a lot of different ones. try to stay away from hops in it. it can cause more panicky feelings.

You  will feel better in a month!  It takes 6 months to a year for your brian to heal! Fentanyl is 100x stronger than morphine and 50x stronger than heroin. Its hell! I thought I was dying and had every freaking symtom possible! Rest, try slow walks down the block, eat bananas, ensure!  I already had bad anxiety and panic attacks and after 2 weeks I had to get on valium. It eventually went away and I was able to get off the valium. It takes time and you will wake up soon and be so relieved!

Hi...I came off the patches as well.  I was about 9 months clean when everything was clicking back into normal.  But..exercise offset any negative effects of the wds.  Take care in understanding that the changes are good because your body, including your mind, is getting back together.

How are you doing today?I hope feeling some what better.You got alot of good advice.Like  I said before treat yourself good and be proud of yourself for making it 2 weeks.Does it really matter how long it will take?You made it 2 weeks and that is 2 weeks you never have to do again if you stay clean.So what matters is not how long it will take what matters is if you keep making the right choice(not to use)you will keep moving forward.Your well on your way to a clean and free life!Keep up the good work!!!!

i over looked your comment on fears about the unsure future.

there are alot of people around me experiencing the same panic concerning the future. and they are not even on drugs. what with all the conspiracy theroys going around and of course the day by day drama all over the world now, it is pretty easy to get anxious about it. i mean, who knows what's gonna happen?

i believe it is the fear of dying that is making these people crazy. when we can be at peace about our after life, than there is no anxiety.
reality check. hah-deep!!

TRY AND READ MY FIRST POSTS THAT I EVER MADE. THEIRS A LOT OF INFO ONTHERE AND BIG TIME ADVICE. I HAD NO IDEA WHAT I WAS IN FOR. NO ONE KNOWS WHAT FENTANYL DETOX IS LIKE UNLESS THEY EXPERIENCED IT. I JUST DETOXED OFF NORCO 10/325 TAKING 4 TO 6 AT A TIME AND IT WAS WALK IN THE PARK COMPARED TO FENTANYL. AFTER 2 WEEKS I WAS SLEEPING 3 TO 4 HOURS USING VALIUM. TRY AND ASK YOUR DOC ABOUT TRAZADONE FOR SLEEP. ILL GET BACK TO YOU SWEETIE!
