Re: is this the start of withdrawls?
Your withdrawl is normal although it shouldn't last to long. From all opiates you can expect to have so type of withdrawl, considering the amount of time you used, along with the serverity of the type of opiates you were taking, things shouldn't get to bad. Expect to have some restlessness trying to sleep, your bowel movements may be abnormal, and you have have tightness in your musles and pain in your joints. Possibly feel like you have a flu for a couple days, but it shouldn't even be that bad or even to that extent. Make it 7 days off that stuff and you'll be fine. Although I do not suggest taking Valium to calm down, your just replacing one drug for another, even though they have different effects. Try getting some herbal medicines for sleep and restlessness, and if necessary see if you can find something to help relax your muscles, wait a week and you'll feel much better. If you feel your still having cravings to take more percs of vics then try finding a NA meeting in your area.
