Depends: on the type of withdrawal! Opiate withdrawal typically 1 week AND generally up to a month on the restless leg effect so I've heard (not commonly seen since non-narcotic meds like muscle relaxers and parkinson's meds treat this). Lyrica withdrawal is 1-2 weeks OR LESS. If there is underlying restless leg like about 10-20% of the population, then...it isn't withdrawal and the symptoms stay.

Possibly: They are of two types. The leiomyoma occurs in the skin or gut but the common form is the uterine fibroid. Rhabdomyomas are rare tumors of muscles, they occur in childhood and often become malignant assuming this is a uterine fibroid, if it were in the proper anatomic location it could cause vascular compromise, nerve compression, pelvic cramping or even a referred pain pattern.

Maybe...: We suggest rest, ice, elevation, compression and NSAID of choice. You don't necessarily have to stop, but you may need to back off some. If it worsens, you may have to stop and get it checked out.
