Protracted Benzo withdrawal

When I went to my GP last year with severe dystonia, loss of sensation, hypersalivation etc she was like a rabbit in the headlights. Just kept saying ‘I need a neurologist to tell me what to do!’ She has no clue and neither of the two neurologist has any idea either than say ‘don’t take any drugs not even paracetamol’and ‘Benzos are terrible and should only have been prescribed for 2-4 weeks. One told me people can get ‘Functional Neurological Disorder’ (which is current diagnosis)from long term anti depressants as well.
