This is unreal and how can it be worse every year? Its totally disabling as getting to the next room many times requires help! How can i put this burden on my wife and i actually have to get into a car in the garage as i scream out in pain and frustration not wanting her to see or hear me! I see no one on any benzo site as bad as me. Might be age?(81) but i don't know how i will make 82. Several doctors and no help there as ALL medicines make me even worse !
Yes ,but it only seems to happen when i get upset,so i expect i am over sensitive to stress and not being on an anxiety medicine! The head pressure,severe head pressure along with 6+ years of horrific muscle tension that has made me unable to walk is all very stressful and no one has an answer! And no i never tried to re- instate lorazapam.
Besides a doctor who specialises in arthritis who i have been seeing for 30 years,i have only ,been seeing 3 different neurologists and one suggested klonipin for 30 days,the other suggested i re instate my lorazapam. I tried one small dose klonipin and i could not take it ! Where i live on Merritt island we dont have too many doctors and its too hard to go 50+ miles to Orlando.i am hoping someone on her has a good suggestion! Thank you.
My neurologist is clueless when it comes to protracted acute benzo withdrawal,(PAWS) so my GP should not be expected to know more,- he is dumbfounded and has witnessed my uncontrollable shacking ,has to help me in & out of his place,so if he could help ,i think he would.Other than family and a few close friends,i dont think anyone including my doctors think anything but its a mental thing as no one that i have met in real life knows about what a cold turkey from a strong benzo can do to a person.
