I also think that many cells in my body died in detox and shortly after. My tongue
was bumpy with a white coating covering it. I could see my skin on
the rag, as I bathed. I smelled like rotting cheese, detox cheese is what I called that smell. The symptoms of detox and flu are similar, so is the process of healing. I think your tongue is healing and replacing numb cells, programed to opiates, but that is simply my own theory.
