Welcome to HealingWell!!!! I think almost all of us can relate to the problem of tolerence. I hope your under a doctor's care and he/she is helping you thru this. We're not doctor's here, so we can't give out medical advise, but we can support you. Did your doctor not give you any medications to help with the withdrawals? Their are some medications out there that can help with withdrawals, comfort meds. Either way, if your suffering alot, and your doctor had you taper off of your meds, then you need to call them and tell them what's going on.
Some people here take a holiday away from their pain meds to avoid tolerence, but they do it under a doctor surpervision. You should never do this on your own, it can be dangerous. You can become dehydrated very easily, so all I can say is drink lots of fluids and get in with your doctor right away.
