Dental pain?

Does anybody have this? I was at the dentist last week and she said she thought my toothache and cold sensitivity was due to a crooked bite after I had some cavities filled in the spring. She filed some fillings down. Tooth still hurts though. Feel like I am starting to go crazy and imagine symptoms…..

Tooth “zaps” have happened to me a few times during my taper. Like a nerve suddenly gets shocked. Goes away pretty quickly for me, but definitely weird and unsettling.

Oh lordy yes, I’ve had no end of tooth issues from withdrawal. Your residual pain could be an irritated periodontal ligament, which takes some time to heal. Try not to bother it and be patient, takes some tylenol or ibuprofen for the pain. If you think you might have bruxism (tooth grinding, often at night) look into getting a good quality bite guard and wear it. If the cold sensitivity doesn’t go away, make sure they do some x-rays and you might want to have an endodontist evaluate the tooth.

“The only thing that helped was Klonopin”

Is this mania?

2 weeks ago I went to the er because I felt like I was loosing my mind, I felt like adrenaline was cranked through me all day, it was very scary my mind was racing 1 hundred miles an hour, obsessed thoughts, no sleep needed no meds could calm me down, went back on the seroquel for a few days felt a lot better, this all happened when I stopped the buspar and seroquel for a few weeks, I went up on my dose in buspar today same feeling are starting but my seroquel famed it down, is this bipolar mania? Still trying to diagnose me because my anxiety is so bad with mood changes and depression, only thing that helped was klonopin but weont prescribe it I have been off of it a month and a half after tapering, I’m just wondering if my anxiety is so bad from bipolar?

Thanks, […]! Good detective work! Did I miss it on the website? I thought perhaps there was some reason why I couldn’t find any specific names and biographies attached to this project. Why wouldn’t the names and bios be listed in the “About Us” section? Why wouldn’t they introduce themselves formally — especially if they’re asking for money? Am I missing something?

I know Lapis, I thought the same thing. No, you didn’t miss it on the website. It’s not there. This really should be information on the website, but apparently you have to be a Facebook member to find out everything, like members names, 24 hr fundraising event, not sure what else. I’m a little disappointed by this. I don’t like Facebook. This is how I found it (in bold):

I can’t seem to post the link, I think because it’s Facebook. I’m not a Facebook member, but if you Google “who runs the benzodiazepine information coalition”, a Facebook return comes up called, “Benzodiazepine Information Coalition – Timeline | Facebook. Click on that and the above quote comes from the comment section and you can click on “Jocelyn”. You’ll recognize her from the videos.

In 1985 a psychiatrist whom I trusted prescribed me Alprazolam starting with 1 mg a day, raising the dose more and more until March 2015 when the dose was 6 mg. In that same year a good psychiatrist responsible and ethic took it away with Diazepam, Qeutiapine and other support medications. To this date I still suffer abstinence. In my terrible sleepless nights I started reading Ashton Manual and seeked to find people who managed to wake from this nightmare and so I found benzobuddies. The stories of people having victory, has given hope that there can be a full recovery process. I have small windows (good days) which are becoming a little more frecuent.

Wonder if this L. Ron Hubbard lover was going to introduce anti-benzo legislation?

Benzo Buddies ghouls gang up on addict who relapsed

The abuse goes on for ELEVEN pages! They later accused poor Timmy of being a troll and a hacker. That’s the kind of support an addict gets at Benzo Buddies – no support at all. 🙁

I couldn’t handle the intense pain last night of my depression it was so excruciating that i swallowed 3 mg of klonipin. I know people in here have tried to help me but i can tell you today that i give up. I cannot handle this intense withdtawal and i think it’s from kindling. If i can be a poster boy of what not to do, please learn from me.
Slowly taper and no rescue doses. I have the most severe depression thst i dont even think it helped. I just made another huge mistake and in sure it’s one il never recover from. I’m so sorry benzo buddies and in ashamed that im such a failure. I guess i couldn’t pull up my big boy pants. I’m leaving the site now and i don’t know what to do from here, but i obviously can’t handle this wirhdrawal. It’s way too much depression and chest pain. I’m out of answers and unfortunately you don’t get 2nd chances in life.

So you either did not run out of all of them the other day, or you drove to the pharmacy in excruciating pain last night to get more. My feeling is you had them.You know I don’t really know what to say. Past experience for you has proved that reinstatements and rescue doses have done more harm than good for you. You have greatly regretted each time you have done so. Do you expect if to me different this time around. Your right, kindling has probably caused your withdrawal to be worse. I don’t know what your future plans are for Klonopin, but reaching tolerance quickly would not be out of the question for someone who has kindled. Is you plan to just keeping up your dose over time time you reach tolerance? I don’t know timmy. I think you should have tried to hang on a bit longer.

Good grief, Timmy. I think you need to step back from all this and ask yourself some tough questions as there is obviously a lot more going on here than just withdrawing from benzos.

It’s been suggested, many times, that you have a plan in place for the time when w/d becomes too overwhelming for you. Have you done that? Simply posting on this forum after you’ve reinstated/changed meds/added new meds/reduce dosed does NOT constitute a plan.

Furthermore, you are both right and wrong in regards to not getting second chances in life. We actually don’t just get second chances….we get third, fourth, fifth, etc. The key to this however, is the ability to adapt, or change or accept your circumstances….something that you are indeed struggling with.

You’ve been on this forum long enough to know that benzos cause depression, so the fact that you continue to take them FOR depression is bewildering. Of course it didn’t help.

If you’re depressed, it would likely be in your best interest to start some intensive therapy, continue your long walks, get some sunshine and eat properly.

The mental pain and anguish last night was just too much. I literally felt like my life was on the line. Worse is a friend gave them to me and now im totally out. This is really goung to kill me. I know il get flamed but the mental torture from kindling is so bad i had zero choice in my mind. I’m throwing in the towel. I am not capable of this obviously.
