Scared stiff, last month on psin meds

I guess this should be on the medication forum. I've read hundreds regarding fentynal withdrawl.  I've been weaning off them since November and down to the last 12 mcg patch. On the 3-4th day I get Charlie horses that tear the muscle. Due to circumstances out of my control, I will not be able to have any opiods prescribed  after the end of June (it's a long absurd story). My doc is 68 and doesn't have a clue.
I've been through withdrawal 3 times but NEVER had this problem. This is just a vent. I know from the thousands of fentynal posts there is no answer.

Just terrified at what is to come 
Thank you for your time.

    Hi !
    Are you saying that you currently have a tear in a muscle?
    I am glad you feel free to vent. We may not have answers for each other, but you know you have support!
    I would think many of us would have fear of the unknown future...so you're not alone there!

    Even if you are to be without opioids, Doctor will always be there to listen to your symptoms and help direct you.
    If you are to have difficulties, let us know.

    But hopefully, your tapering was done well and you will do well!
    If you haven't already, now may be a good time to find other distractions for your pain...ex..****The Blend****....not so much as a formula, but as a concept of other ways besides meds to help with pain relief.

    Do take care!

  • Just got back from ER. Yep, my doc had right idea but to low a dose for fentynal withdrawl. T  they increased it to 3 xanex a day and 2-3 clonidine. That's what they did when I went cold turkey on daludid.
    Small tear in calf or really pulled the hamstring. Using walker again,  VERY SLOWLY. Oh dehydrated also..

    So sorry to hear that you are having such a bad time of it now, Couch - and you were, at least briefly, so optimistic when you started vaping the cbd oil.  Do you think that perhaps that might have been a very positive indication that you could get better - because if you were totally wrecked you wouldn't have been able to have a brief recovery like that would you?  I was hurting a lot today but now i am feeling better and maybe it is because i have been puffing on thd cbd vaper a lot - tho i must a!low that it is more likely the teamadol i took five hours ago - or maybe both together...
  • Who knows, never ever let them put you on fentynal. 7 more days and done forever. Yes the CBD is helping with the increased xanex, I can eat a little.  Sleep, maybe in a few more days.
