    Welcome Elhakemamir, I had problems sleeping, and with constipation, but I put it down to the Champix, which I dropped from 2 to 1 per day dose. Later on I found my taste buds were changing. Our bodies go through various stages of healing and I can only suggest this is what the problem is. To be on the safe side I think it would be wise to consult with your doctor if it continues. You do not say if you are on NRT or cold turkey.

    I’m going through the same feeling and symptoms you’re going through. I also quit cold turkey. I’m on my 21 day.

    Hi. If you quit cold turkey it means you are in control of decisions you are making. No so called NRT. There is none in my book and no offence to anyone trying this method. After successful NRT it is cold turkey all the way. Hope you continue having decided to bite the bullet. Wish you well.

    I only asked what method you were using, to help you decide if it was the NRT that was causing the stomach problem, but I see that is not the issue. I personally do not see one method over the other as the better or worse You might need to write out what you are eating that is different than before, this could give you more of an insight, then take your findings to the doc again.

    Day 22 and I’m feeling better finally!!! It differs from person to person. But be assure that in the next week you’ll start feeling better. Some ppl get better earlier than others and some later. But usually not longer than a month. I was having the same feelings as you. Which led me to go give my doctor a visit. He diagnosed my stomach weird feeling and constipation with IBS. And that was due to being worried and stressed too much. So try to relax and not think of the virus. And what really helped me a little is checking my temperature every once in a while to insure me I’m fine.
    Hope this helps.
