    I was taking Vicodin for pain for about 5 months and stopped cold turkey two days ago. I am going through the regular withdrawal symptoms but nothing too bad except for this horrible burning sensation on the skin of my upper back and arms. It feels like I’m sitting against a furnace or something like that. I did have it happen once before after stopping Vicodin two years ago after taking it for about a year after herniating my back.

    Has anyone else experienced this as well or what is causing it? My doc had no idea and no answer from searching the Internet.
