Hi i am trying to stop drinking. Vodka is my drink and i have been consuming over a litre a week for 10 years approx. Ive been trying to taper off by just having one drink such as a glass of wine a day and even try missing one day in between. Around 2nd day i started feeling pain in the top of my thigh, almost in a long thin line. Various other places or rather spots such as my wrists, feet, left rib cage but more of a sharp pain and arms. Im quite worried as it doesnt seem to go now on the leg and i feel tightening or tingling in my toes on the same side as leg pain.
Can anyone tell me if this is a normal side effect. I had some symptoms last night. Freezing cold burning headache and very visual and real dreams half in and out of sleep and sweating like mad. I havent had the shakes though and hope i dont.
Sorry for this long message.
I suffer severely from depression and anxiety and started drinking whilst in an abusive relationships. I also suffered abuse from a young age. I am so much older now and feel i have wasted my years and in some ways its too late for me now. I have just turned 51 and all i want is to have a life worth living. I don't need a lot. I have 2 children now 20 and 23 who have been badly affected by life now as well. My daughter has not really left the house for 5 years. The guilt shame and despair is too much.
I have just rambled. Which i cant do face to face.
Thanks for reading if you got this far.
