u are right, you are still going through the withdrawal phase and it takes usually lot of time to get back the things to normal.
bp and pulse rate fluctuations are expected during this phase and u should not worry about this.
reduce salt intake, do exercises, meditation.
keep a watch on the bp readings though..if it shoots more than expected, consult a doctor
