Hi Sears.
A lot of pain in my arms, hands and fingers along with pins and needles. My doctor opined that it may be carpal tunnel syndrome and has organised a nerve conduction study but I'm not sure that's right as in the last few days I've started to get similar, but not as severe, symptoms in my feet and toes.
Also, really nasty cramps in my legs especially in my calf that tighten every 20-30 secs for an hour or so.
And painful eyes – like they are really swollen. I've had them checked out and they're fine.
From what I've read these are often associated with benzodiazepine withdrawal but then what isn't?
Cheers,
