One thing that troubles me is that I keep getting the impression that many rehab programs try to squeeze the maximum profit out of the maximum in-patient period a medical aid will pay for, but then neglect the critically important close follow-up. Congratulations on not merely stopping the alcohol ( alcoholics do that most days ) but on STAYING STOPPED --- that's a real achievement. Codeine, of course, is a surprisingly close relative to morphine, and can be really addictive ( as well as rather constipating ). Paracetamol isn't very good for livers, but damages them mainly in significant overdose. Which of your current or past chemicals could play a part in the pains / discomforts you mention, is not really possible to tell without physical assessment, tests, etc., so a good physical checkup from a physician would be a good idea --- and maybe the advice of a rehab shrink on coming off the codeine, which would need to be considered as an opiate.
