      Hi Kessers,

      I hope you are feeling a little better at least through receiving feedback from the group. It sounds like to me that you are withdrawing from the drugs. When I ran out ofLyrica my legs went crazy and I couldn't sleep.When we withdraw from any drug the body fights it by producing the very symptoms they are designed to stop. I commend you for going off your meds, although it doesn't sound like it was a happy decision due to something occurring for you to have to. It's  great to hear you are getting to the gym. Aaaarhhh they were the days smile

      Rrr thank u for ur kind comments. Im off the withdrawalls now but im back to all the symtoms and more it seems. Coming from prescribed morphine and other drugs its horrible the pain is now becoming unbearable and then when the body wants to stretch it kills me. Brings me to tears most days even worse when i get to the gym but even if i go for 10mins its good cos its not just that ive got there lol. U have to laugh i do enough crying. X

    I have to stretch like a spasm every morning . I take a Mobic every night and it stopped the pins and needles and stabbing in my left leg . Nothing takes the bruising feeling away but the more I move the better for me . My job helps with that . I also do wall push ups against the wall like 20 and it helps . I hold the bed and leg longes .its slower every morning but I make it smile

      No Mobic is a script but it's not as harsh as ibprofen and naproxen for pain and it's only 15 mg . I can't have turmeric rash from the inside ;( so natural wasn't my option .

      It's hard I know to get out of bed . I struggle . I have to wake up 2 hours before I go to work and use a heat flaxseed pack and chill . Some days are worse then others . I've been in pain for a long time but the last 3 years the worst . I am a constant bruise but I push thru it and sometimes feel better for moving more . But boy when night hits and I can chill I'm toast lol and again a heat pack . Cold hurts so that no Bueno . Breathing exercises help me also . I refuse to take me over , I have life to live and grandkids to enjoy and a hubby and co workers to bug smile I want to move to live and I will smile mind over matter has been my thing even thou my body is an a**hole wink

    Stretching is good for you and normal. I am thinking you are meaning the feeling of needed to stretch out like a cat does. If thats not what you mean then i dont know what you mean. I love a good stretch.

      Yes i get what you mean my streches mostly end up with cramps especially in my back. But i do enjoy a strech that doesn't end up cramping. I am going to try magnesium and getting a bit more sun vit.D and drinking more water seems to help when i do that.
