Was Not expecting this

My day started out great yesterday, up by 6:30, made my tea, spent my time on EX, then went to start my day. I fixed myself a large bowl of oatmeal with a large glass of milk, normal morning breakfast for me I was doing my bible study and journaling when my energy started to go.  I was fighting to keep my eyes open, so I thought okay maybe I am coming down with something, that was not the problem.  I put myself to bed and slept for two hours.  I woke up later able to sit up but still no energy.  My wonderful daughter took my temp twice throughout the afternoon, I had none, as a matter of fact it was 97.7 the first time, 97.6 the last time she took it and first thing this morning.  But I have slept, according to my sleep tracker of my 35 hours of being smoke free I have slept 16 3/4 hours of them.  That is almost half of them. 

I have been looking using my phone and tablet but can't find anything on the site about this kind of kind of withdrawal.  I do have hot a cold chills on occasion.  My muscles are not cramping instead they they feel like they are opening up and shaking stuff out.  Almost like restless leg syndrome only it is happening in my arms also.

I have been through physical withdrawal before due to a medical misdiagnosis between menopause and Bipolar. I was able to slowly wean myself off both antidepressants and the bipolar med, with the help of a doctor.  The bipolar med caused a massive amount of physical pain that thanks to a massage therapist and weekly massages for two months I was able to get it all out of my system.  I never felt this exhausted in that whole period of time.

I don't have the energy to try to explain anymore.  If someone could please point me in the right direction on something to read or watch. 

Going to get second breakfast and try to fight this a little longer, before giving into a nap.
