    Ryan, thanks a lot for your videos. You seem really sincere and it’s so
    nice that you have such gratitude for your recovery and are helping others
    so much. If you could answer my question I’d really appreciate it. How long
    (if you had it) did it take for your restlessness symptom in particular
    take to go away? I’m addicted to Kratom – most people seem to think this is
    an absolute joke, but I really have a serious issue with the restlessness
    as do many others I’ve learned. I am taking a gram to cope, just at night.
    Am I prolonging the pain by doing this? I had no idea you could take sleep
    for granted until now.

    Opiate Withdrawal and Restless Leg Syndrome Remedies

    Many years ago during detox I used to get the leg and arm withdrawal
    symptoms so bad that I would smash them off walls and stuff for the relief
    of mere seconds…now I have RLS and find I can only sleep for about an
    hour maximum before I wake twitching and jerking etc…I`ve been on
    Buprenorphine (Subutex) for several years this time around (became addicted
    again after being in a fire and given morphine during hospital treatment
    for burns) and am down to 2mg…I find that 2.8mg will stop my RLS totally
    but as soon as I start to try to get off of the Bupe (subutex) from
    reducing from 2.8mg down to 2mg I go through the RLS…I feel that this
    isn`t to do with the usual “withdrawal” symptoms of addiction but some
    underlying thing which I have now acquired perhaps due to my age (56
    now)…as soon as I wake due to the RLS I find that if I take as little as
    0.8mg of Bupe then it relieves the twitching etc…I have been going round
    in circles trying to get off the Subutex for a couple of years but keep
    coming up against the RLS and so go back up to 2.8mg (which seems to be the
    dose at which I experience no symptoms at all)…it is driving me nuts as I
    dearly want to be free of the drug side of things again bbbut can`t because
    of the RLS and sleepless nights…I was “clean” for 11 years prior to
    getting burned in a fire and want to get back to a “normal” and functional

    Hot showers and baths are the best thing I’ve done so far for my rls when I
    withdrawal. I’ve tried almost everything but that always works but only for
    about a hour when you get out so that sucks. If it lasted all night anyone
    could get threw that part of withdrawal but not the case :(. I haven’t done
    the Irish soap but I have it in my room but haven’t tried so I will let
    everyone know if it worked for me. I have the worst RLS during withdrawal
    and if I didn’t I could run threw withdrawal without a problem.

    Hey Ryan. The RLS is the worst part of the withdrawal. Luckily I found a
    way to stop the RLS immediately with magnesium supplements!!! I take
    500-1000mg magnesium once the RLS hits, and it stops within minutes. I’m
    not joking! I wish I knew a way to help more people with this information.
    Also, 4-5lbs of Epsom salt (magnesium sulfate) in a hot bath helps a ton.
    Please help others with this info. (FYI it seems to work best when I take
    the magnesium with a multi vitamin)

    How long does the RLS last?It seems every time I stop taking
    opiates(hydrocodone,oxycodone) I am left with RLS after the Acute
    withdrawal is over.I can’t seem to get a dr to help with this.Thanks.

    Thank you for this vid! I didn’t know the leg twitches and insomnia was
    about my withdrawals. I chose to end a 20 year Dr. supported oxycodone,
    oxycontin, & vicodin dependency. I was on average of 150# 10’s for 20 yrs.
    6-10 per day. I am today cold turkey 9 days on my own. How long until they
    are out of my system? In the midst of stopping pain pills I am recovering
    from a knee replacement last Nov. 19th 2013, and a extreme weightloss
    thiegh excess skin removal (7# ea. leg){lost 230#} surgery on April 30th
    Is there a place to go for an explanation of all the withdrawal symptoms?
    Thanks for the help. Aloha

    Hello Ryan, My name is Robert and I have been a opiate addict for now over
    6 yrs with having foot problems. My family Dr. had helped me by giving me
    this pill so I could work and support my family without losing any time
    from surgery. It was Vicodin 5/500mg. I did a lot of side work for him,
    being I do construction work. He then seen I had a funny walk with my feet
    hurting me and living on Advil. I knew nothing about pain pills ever and
    never took them other then Advil. He would call me in over the phone from
    his house 90 to 100 Vicodin and man would I be so happy the pain was gone.
    Then after some time I started feeling very tired and sleepy when not
    taking this and thought not much of it other then taking another one and
    feeling better. I am 39 yrs of age and I have a great family in my life who
    loves and cares very much about me and what is going on. My wife does not
    understand at all about withdraw symptoms and man are they killing me now
    after 6 yrs of in the mix with this pain pill thing. I am now taking
    Oxycontin up to 80mg pills. yes they are time release but still it is a
    fix. I am off work today due to being sick from not having I was told from
    a friend to take subs and I bought them off the streets 8.0mg and man they
    really do work for the withdraw. I am thinking this shit could be really
    bad too huh? I am thinking I could create another bad habit. I been on them
    for now for a day and he told me to take them for 8 to 9 days and then I
    should be good from detox of pills and be okay????Is this true and I do not
    know how to get off these devil pills I feel like killing my dr. at times
    for ever putting this in my life:(

    I found that using a Magnesium oil or gel helped me a lot. I’m on 26 days
    of Methadone withdrawal. Still going through it but getting close I think.
    Thanks for all you do Ryan, met some great people on FreeFromHell.com
    Very supportive! I’m using Calm Support.

    I went through withdrawal multiple times while using around 120mg oxycodone
    i.r. daily. I put 6 bars of different brand soaps around my bed near my
    legs/feet. It did absolutely nothing to calm my restless legs. While going
    through withdrawal of moderately heavy opiate use I’ve found about 99% of
    natural remedies to be ineffective. I am very skeptical about calm support
    being helpful. I cannot find any reviews other than calmsupport.com
    testimonials. After trying every single remedy you can imagine for RLS,
    I’ve found prescription clonidine taken with passionflower is one that
    actually works.

    Just wanted to say thank you Ryan for getting back to me. I just want to
    let people know if they have any doubts about Ryan or calm support erase
    those thoughts out the window. This man honestly cares and is doing his
    best to share his pain and knowledge to help. I have a long journey ahead
    of me and had no one to reach out to and so I took a chance to seek Ryan
    knowledge and he got back to me. It brought tears to my eyes that someone
    who is a total stranger took the time and asked ” How I was doing”. For the
    first time I actually saw a bit of light in this dark whole of mine. Its
    giving me the will to embrace this long journey ahead and fight and accept
    my addiction. Thank you Ryan!

    If I could throw my 2 cents in. When I was going through withdrawal the
    worst part for my was the 3 AM RLS. It only happened on the nights when I
    took NyQuil and I read later that cold meds with sleep aids will intensify
    the effect. The nights with no NyQuil and a couple bananas for the
    potassium and I was RLS free.

    Hello Ryan.This is Robert and I am working on going into a clinic this wk
    for my ongoing addiction. Please wish me the best and I will be in touch
    with you when I get back home to my family to let you know how I made out.
    I am so scared of failing and relapsing but hey one step at a time I am
    thinking I just want to first be able to be strong enough to get through
    the sickness. I did not kill my self being my sister and I was stuck
    cleaning up my uncles remains after taking a 270 deer rifle and blowing his
    head off. I see what my mother and grandmother including my sister and I
    are going through after his action took place 3 wks ago. Crazy shit and I
    now know I am not built to do the same thing to the woman I love and my 16
    yr old Daughter. I am seeking Professional help because I just want my life
    back and to never ever in my life depend on a pain pill to just live
    through a normal day. I am tired of the fog in front of my eyes and always
    seeing things that do not appear to be real. So long story short I need
    your prayers for me and please have faith in me as I do for my self. Thanks
    and can’t wait till let you know how I make out in the end. I am going in
    for 14 to 21 days and then doing a out patient deal if they have something
    like that. I am not sure where I am going with this so I decided to go into
    the ER when the time is right this wk and I hope they can guide me from
    there….Thanks again bro ttyl:)

    This is by a wide margin my worst symptom. My brain is beyond exhausted and
    desperate for rest but my legs have a mind of their own and start kicking.
    It’s a feeling hard to put into words, but Ryan described it the best as
    “manic”. I’ve tried almost everything and the closest Ive got to relief
    personally was rubbing Bengay cream or Tylenol gel on my legs and feet.
    I’ve never tried or heard of the soap idea but I’m more than willing to
    give it a shot! Thanks a lot for the suggestion.

    Bullshit! I regularly go 4-5 days without it. There are no withdrawl
    symptoms at all, sleep will suffer dramatically but gets better. Quit
    spreading propaganda, and disinformation you shill.

    I think it varies from person to person, I also hear a lot blame on
    marijuana when it is the person taking It, or others telling them it is
    marijuana doing this, or booze or whatever. I first smoked marijuana when I
    was 13 or so, off and on heavier maybe when I was 16 – 22 getting stoned on
    weekends or when I can get some. I am an adult of 39 years old now and I
    have been smoking marijuana for about 8 years straight just about everyday
    I have my bowl or two, I now use it for more medical purposes than
    recreational like when I was younger. I am diabetic with severe
    neuropathy RLS restless leg syndrome, Insomnia along with anxiety and post
    traumatic stress disorder which I had long before I started smoking weed or
    using edibles. I found that marijuana has helped me in all these cases. not
    diabetes itself but the pain from the neuropathy and I am able to sleep
    normally. With the anxiety and mental issues, my wife likes it because I
    can go outside and deal with life, after taking a couple tokes of
    courage. I also argue with the fact that so many people say they lose their
    memory whether short term or long term. I may find myself forget some minor
    thoughts or train of thought when heavily stoned but never forget
    permanently, as a matter of fact I remember very shortly so after, with
    even more detail to add. I also find that when I am under the spell of
    marijuana I tend to keep or remember more of what I was thinking about or
    information I have taken in, allowing me to pay more attention and better
    understand everything. If you have a weak mind or a tendency to become
    easily influenced by other substances or other people, and also I find
    weaker minded people tend to grab to things like religion or groups or
    gangs or something to that nature. Because many people today do not have
    the mental strength to think for their damn selves. Don’t blame other
    things for your problems because if you had a good mind you would of said,
    oh shit I better not do that or I’ll try something else. If it doesn’t give
    you what you want don’t do it, and don’t ever say it has addictive
    properties, this is just nonsense. You only have yourself to blame or boast
    about for the decisions you make in life.

    Marijuana withdrawal does not exist. I have used marijuana for nearly a
    year, and recently went off of it for a MONTH. The only thing I noticed was
    a mild craving, but I had ZERO physical withdrawal symptoms. In fact, I’ve
    gone through caffeine withdrawal when I stopped drinking coffee for 2
    weeks. The first week I was irritable, had increased sweating, insomnia,
    and mild hand tremors. I experienced NONE of that after stopping weed for a
    month. If anything, weed can create a “dependence” situation, but you can
    also become “dependent” on food (certain foods, obviously everyone needs to
    eat), video games, sex, alcohol, exercise, and the list goes on. Anything
    that makes you happy can create dependence in varying degrees. And if you
    use the “chemicals are bad therefore weed is bad!” argument, then you
    better stop eating many fruits and vegetables because they contain dozens
    to hundreds of chemicals too. It’s quality > quantity here. This is the
    reason that, even though marijuana has more chemicals than tobacco, the
    former has NO RECORDED DEATHS from consumption where the latter kills
    THOUSANDS of people every year. Long story short, marijuana can cause
    dependence (easily remedied in 99% of people) but NEVER, EVER physiological

    “substitute one habit for a less bad habit” yet you say you took up
    cigarettes after you stopped smoking pot. Cigarettes are both more harmful
    and much more addictive than pot.

    aint addictive is not a heavy smoker. I been smoking from 13 years old and
    im 29 now and i need to smoke everyday otherwise this is what is in store
    for me ——–> Withdrawal symptoms are : sweating, migraines, rage
    attacks, depression, suicidal thoughts, no appetite, insomnia, paranoia,
    irritable, mood swings, panic attacks, anxiety, no ambition, no hope…

    You’re just picking on wording. I wasn’t blaming pot; I meant that it was
    the thing that led to their lives being harmed, but ultimately they chose
    to use it in that way. I don’t generally blame an inanimate object without
    intentions for causing harm, and I stated that repeatedly. I’m finding this
    conversation incredibly bizarre, because I think we actually agree on a lot
    of things, but for some reason we’re still bickering.

    without having to do it.
