I've been wondering about the generalities of opiate/opioid withdrawals. I know the standard symptoms; Agitation, Nausea, Runny nose, Sweating... Also the more severe symptoms such as Abdominal pain, Diarrhea, Extremely Dilated pupils, and Vomiting.
But my question to you is what specific symptoms do you come down with? Not the stuff listed above (list that too if you like...), but anything that you get specifically? What symptoms don't you get? Anything that you feel extremely lucky NOT to have?
For me, I can always tell the beginnings of dope sickness when I lay down to go to sleep. I can't stop shaking my legs, and I get this strange "sensation" in my crotch area; It feels like I'm on edge, almost the feeling you get when you know you're getting laid later that night. It's impossible to sleep. Not sleeping coupled with standard opiate withdrawal, I feel extremely irritated the next day. Example: The second day into some withdrawals I was having, my girlfriend called me. I told her I didn't feel good and that I would call her later. She called me back like 30 minutes later to tell me her grandmother had just died. I almost broke up with her just for calling me, even though she had every reason to.
Luckily, I never get any of the intestinal symptoms mentioned.... Thankfully no diarrhea or nausea for me.
What do you think?
