Thanks for your advice. I must say that I have no burning sensation in my throat or stomach, and only on the left side of my chest right where i gauge my heart to be. The pain is almost a muscular burning feeling, like a hot poker being pushed into and through my ribcage. This and a 'jumpy' feeling heart beat, more forceful than normal - but then I have read codeine slows your heartrate so this may just be my body not knowing what to do now it's gone.
Due to the withdrawls I am not sure what is a reaction to removing the codeine from my system which is why I have waited 3 days to question it, as it isn't getting better - could this be a withdrawl symptom?

Thank you for your time. I didnt mean to offend and will happily credit you for your answer - am just worried and wanted reassurance as no-one knows i've been taking the medication for so long and so heavily.
If this was likely to be normal I dont want to worry my fiance and family by confessing to my problem, which is why i wanted to be sure i had a human response to judge whether I needed to come clean with them or just ride out the withdrawls and claim to have flu
