RLS is probably one of the most irritating parts of going through withdrawal. How long it lasts is usually dependent on how long you used drugs and how long you keep craving them. It can be one of the only physical symptoms that lasts for weeks after the rest of the withdrawals go away. Yes, there is an end in sight but sometimes it takes a while. Try doing massages and make sure you’re getting plenty of exercise before laying down for the night.

Most of the withdrawal symptoms are gone in about 10 days. Most people say that the restless leg syndrome goes away at around the same time. Mine lasted a little bit longer, and my doctor said it has to do with a chemical in the brain that can take a long time to stabilize. Just hang on and do your best to stay comfortable.

Don’t beat yourself up over relapsing, it just means you’ve been strong on your own for way to long. Be proud of yourself for looking into professional help for your problem. It sounds like that is exactly what you need. Alcohol is a tough addiction to beat. My Mom was an alcoholic before she passed away, she battled alcoholism for 18 years, relapsing every 6 or 8 months.

It can be quite expensive to go to a detox facility. Back in my day detox facilities used to be inpatient but according to this site most places today are outpatient facilities. With 50 percent of the people that continued in alcoholism treatment after outpatient detoxification. Inpatient treatment provides monitoring and support.

Inpatient clinics usually provide better care for patients, and also separates the person from alcohol related social activities that may increase relapse. Although outpatient is about 175 to 388 bucks verses average of 3,319 to 3,665. This really does vary though and can be much more expensive depending on where you choose to get help, if you want or need something more private you are going to be be paying quite a bit more than the average detox facility, but You are less likely to relapse with inpatient detox facilities treatment.

I know there are some detox places that you can do for free. There is one near me that is free. The government funds it and they do use God in the daily activities and meeting. I see some of the guys from there selling wood burnings they create with homemade signs that usually have some god or healing message on them.

I but them on occasion for my family members birthdays and stuff, and to support the sobriety of those looking for help. I always appreciated that they helped my Mom. I hope you find the best possible treatment for you. I know detox is rough but it’s worth it to get your life back and be the person your family and loved ones remember before alcohol took over.

I’m a bit surprised your doctor let you quit painkillers cold turkey and didn’t talk to you about the symptoms and risks of cold turkey. Or the side effects of the medications like restless leg syndrome.

There are often ways these side effects can be avoided. Although sometimes if the restless leg syndrome stems from a pregnancy illness or medication it can often go away as soon as the condition is resolved. However some people the condition may appear to have gone away for a few months then it comes back. And over time only gets worse.

The real cause of restless legs syndrome is really unknown but according to this site , some factors could be a family history, or chronic disease, like diabetes or rheumatoid arthritis. Pregnant women are more prone to it and caffeine can worsen it.

I guess many people with restless leg syndrome also have a related sleep disorder called periodic lim movement disorder. Involulentary jerking or bending leg movements occurring every 10 to 60 seconds during sleep. Some people experience hundreds of these movements per night, many of which awaken them or the partners, and disrupts their sleep.

Both conditions can result in difficulties with work, social like and recreational activities. Have you tried some simple at home remedies to try to ease your symptoms and help you sleep? I know that for me sometimes I just had to get up from bed no matter how tired I was and just stretch it out walking around a little bit and doing some knee bends, it helped me get back to sleep easier.

Often times I would massage it after I got back into bed as well. If I was still bothered I would use a heating pad or ice pack to help. I even quit drinking caffeine to help. I know if it’s super bad you can ask your doctor about certain medicines that might help but I would for sure do home remedies first.
