Persistent tremor after finishing detox?

Did anyone here still have a tremor after detox? I was inpatient for 7 days, now on day 12 and am feeling well, but I still have a mild but definite tremor. This may be related to my other medical problems and the meds I am on, but I just wondered if anyone else experienced this, and if so, how long did it last. Thanks!

Great work on getting clean and 12+ days!! Thatís huge, Kudos to you..

I did a week / 7 day medical detox when I was 43 after 20+ years of drinking / drugging and I felt all kinds of weird/ strange things for 6 months +

In my experience eating clean/healthy, exercise of any kind, even 30 min walks and lots of sleep sure helped me.. Iím an AA guy and I went to a lot of meeting just to have a place to be and hang out with ex drunks trying to accomplish the same thing I was..

Great job! Youíve got this! Wishing you the best!! Hang in there take it one day at a time!

Hi Sunnyday

A lot of people report tremors for a while - most of the time they seem to go away. If you're worried tho, there's really no substitute for seeing a doctor?

Glad to hear things are improving. As dee mentioned though, you'd really need to follow up with your doc on that - especially if you have other associated conditions that might be causing the tremors. Certainly our bodies take a while to recover from the damage drinking has done - and I do remember having all kinds things I hadn't really felt before. But to be safe keep an open communication with your doc. Rest, drink water, get some good food in you - that can't hurt either!

If you drank heavily for many years (like most of us on here) you canít really expect you body to recover in days.

It may take many months. And it is possible that some things donít ever improve.

It sounds like you have questions that would be best answered by a Doctor.

Thanks for the comments. I have discussed this with a doctor, who suggested wait and see, but it is also helpful to hear from people here!
