Withdrawls and panic attacks

Im Britney. Im 27 and withdrawing from kolonopin, meth, heroin and alcohol. I've been sober for 3 months now. I have withdraw symptoms still. I've been to detox a few times and plan on going to rehab. I have anxiety type feeling withdrawals. My stomach hurts, I think about death, my stomach and arms burn, my lips and gums go numb. I'm on medication for these symptoms but still have them. Any advice on how to lessen them? Has anyone ever had this experien

Welcome Britney! I didn't have those symptoms with my anxiety but other members might share their experiences. It is definitely something you might consider sharing with your Dr.?

That's for sure one heck of a combination to come off of. I would stay in close contact with your doc about the issues and possibly start seeing a therapist if you aren't already. They can also help you with getting into rehab.

What does your doctor have to say? Some of these could be symptoms of something else, maybe not all from withdrawal. No, I only experienced depression and anxiety when I sobered up but I was experiencing those disturbances before I ever started drinking and while I was drinking so it wasn't just a case of withdrawals.

I definitely think this should be brought up to a good doctor. Congratulations on quitting all those things. That's amazing.
It might be shocking your system, though, even three months later.
Hang in there...
