... and shins started swelling. Is this a normal withdrawal profile? My BP on Oct 15 was 100/60. Today, my BP is 117/65 and pulse is 51. My BP machine gave me the thumbs down, not sure why. Maybe pulse is too low or erratic? My head is pounding but it does not hurt. I am a 46 year old female. I have lost 75lbs since 2007 and weighed 155 on Oct 15, 2010 and have maintained 155lb weight for a year. I don't eat any processed foods except peanut butter. Do I need to seek medical care? When will this extra water leave my body?
