    Thanks bro,my nerves and everything are just shaken knowing he is probably dead somewhere is really depressing,all his meds and clothes, everything is here so there is no way he is just gone partying in the same clothes for 3 weeks+

    I spoke with @True concern yesterday. This isn't my situation to talk about but since I see this is a very new post I will say he said he would be back on later. This was last night. So I expect to hear from him today.

    sooooo update. i am starting to go through what feels like a second wave of withdraw. i go from hot to cold hot to cold, i am yawning CONSTANTLY, and my arm tingling is back at night when i try to sleep. i literally threw up in my mouth this morning(i did not feel sick i literally bent over to pick something up and it came up into my mouth) so freaking gross. oh and also i have heartburn and indigestion like a mother!

    That sucks sorry to hear but good news is it usally only last a day. I had it for a cpl months. It would hit me somedays and sometimes not for a week or 2. They say its probably P.A.W.S. I think it definitely is and it's just part of the Homeostatic process of our receptors and transmitters in our brain and body achieving balance again.

    i hope so...the arm tingling is the worst. i fall asleep and then about an hour later i wake up sweating and with the arm stuff. takes a while but i eventually fall back asleep. last night i did within a half hour which is a record.
