You said that this is day 5 of your withdrawal correct? If it is, then first, don't add fuel to the fire by taking any more percocet/oxycodone products. Doing that might relieve some of the symptoms but will not help you in the long term. If you are at day 5, you are most of the way through the bad part and should start feeling a little better as each day passes. The key for you right now is NOT to take anything that is going to set you right back at the beginning. If you were going to have a seizure , you would have had it by now.
Suboxone at this point would be pointless. Suboxone would have been one alternative in the beginning but now that you are most of the way through this withdrawal, adding it now would be a bit pointless. And expensive. Most doctors who use suboxone don't accept insurance and the meds must be paid for and they are expensive.
Some over the counter anti diarreheals will help if you are still suffering some of the stomach upset and diarreheals that come with withdrawal and making sure to eat something, even if it is a light meal will go a long way in helping you feel a bit better. Hot soaks in the tub help relax the aching muscles and muscle spasms if you are having trouble.
You are almost through it and at this point, as long as you don't take anymore percocet to ease the symptoms, you are almost at the end and should start feeling better as more time passes.

Adhesive Arachnoiditis also......just what I didn't need..9/08- adding bilateral ulnar neuropathy with severe compression to the mix. They want me to see a surgeon for ulnar nerve surgery, but I'm not biting.
I've seen enough surgeons over the last few years.
