i quit alcohol 7 months ago and still have frequent shiverings; how long do they typically last..? could it be a symptom of something else...?

i'm not well versed on issues

i'm not well versed on issues involving alcohol, but thinking largely in terms of body chemistry and half-life, seven months seems excessively long. shiverings are by and large non-specific symptoms, at least at this stage. I'd be curious to hear from other recovering alcoholics?

Nikki

Well let me ask you-- is it

Well let me ask you-- is it possible that these are psycho-somatic to some degree? I mean do you experience them at a time when you're also kind of struggling with cravings?

Nikki

They could be psycho-somatic

They could be psycho-somatic but they do not
come during periods of cravings; in fact, i am
happy to say that i am past cravings, only mild
desire from time to time..............

Thanks again.
