I had a little break from the worst symptoms. But the last couple of days my nipples have been painful. I haven't heard of anyone else say this is symptom for them and it's too early for PMS. I'm getting a really sick of being short tempered and irritable all the time. Also, have had nightmares the last couple of nights again. That puts me in a bad mood to start the day off. I've been exercising everyday and have yet to lose a pound. I'm getting frustrated with waiting for my metabolism to get back to normal. No one can tell me for sure how long that will take. I haven't been able to find an actual person off these drugs to tell me how long it takes. I've read that some symptoms/side effects like metabolism can take 6 months to 3 years to get back to normal. That's depressing. I'm also upset since some have withdrawals for only 2 weeks and I'm on week 3. I guess I'll be going till at least 5 weeks the way things look right now. Just when you feel you're on the last leg of withdrawals you wake up feeling worse again. It's like 2 steps forwards 1 step back. I also have been feeling like I'm just about to cry but can't. Something sad on tv or something silly makes me feel that way. I'd rather just cry and get it over with. I'm still nauseous. It got better for a few days and it's back again. Not as bad as the first 2 weeks though. My stomach is bothering me mostly and things smell and taste bad. Like I can't stand smelling garlic and onions, spices, etc. After I eat the nausea is worse. Also, have join pain. I wish that would go away! So that sums it up! How's it going for you now?
