    Hiya and welcome!

    First congrats on quitting!!!
    There can be so many side affects from quitting, but you should follow up with your doctor just to be sure it's nothing more than the nicotine leaving your body. From experience I can tell you, you feel bad before you feel better but check with your doctor to be sure. I hope you feel better soon, and congrats again. Please let us know how you are doing!
