Re: 14 days off Percocet, still withdrawing?

I am doing really good, no urges mentally, but I still don't sleep and I still get this physical want (mine seems to be a burning in the chest) every morning. I did get the painkillers for a medical reason and never had to buy, lie or steal (thank God), but I couldn't be dependent on anything anymore.

Does anybody have an idea why this is happening?
Thank you so much....

Have you considered going to see your family physician for a complete physical;now that you've gotten this far?

Please consider this and realize that you've gotten over one hurdle but the race is far from won yet.

Respectfully
