Does High Humidity Make You Feel 10x Worse?
« on: July 31, 2016, 11:00:34 am »
I’m holding my taper in an attempt to stabilize and the last week has been much worse but so has the humidity. I stay inside all day with AC but does anyone know what humidity does to a body on benzos/in withdrawal/unstable?

Yes…it happens the same to me. Now in Spain we are hitting 40 degrees (european system)…and with the humidity it’s fucking insane.
I feel it a lot in the legs…and burning feet.
Ladies- Benzo Breasts?

probably the most annoying and maybe nice at the same time SXS that I have had for the past 5 months or so is Benzo breasts. They are often painful as hell, starting to get lumpy, although they feel equally lumpy on either side. I often get like shooting pain on the sides as well as overall soreness. They are very full, as if I had an enlargement done, but I havent.
Did any of you also experience this, and found that it eventually went away?
I have asked my doctor about this, she didn’t seem overly concerned. I’m guessing its from the benzo withdrawl, but i may have her do an exam next time I see her just to be on the safe side.
Excoriation disorder (also known as dermatillomania, skin-picking disorder, neurotic excoriation, acne excoriee, pathologic skin picking (PSP), compulsive skin picking (CSP) or psychogenic excoriation) is a mental disorder characterized by the repeated urge to pick at one’s own skin, often to the extent that damage is caused. It is defined as “repetitive and compulsive picking of skin which results in tissue damage.”
There are several different classes of pharmacological treatment agents that have some support for treating excoriation disorder: (1) SSRIs; (2) opioid antagonists; and (3) glutamatergic agents. In addition to these classes of drugs, some other pharmacological products have been tested in small trials as well.
Typically, individuals with excoriation disorder find that the disorder interferes with daily life. Hindered by shame, embarrassment, and humiliation, they may take measures to hide their disorder by not leaving home, wearing long sleeves and pants even in heat, or covering visible damage to skin with cosmetics and/or bandages. Activities such as typing may be painful for those who pick at their fingers or hands, or walking for those who pick at the soles of their feet
Was this poor person forced to stop taking their medication by the anti-psychiatry maniacs at Benzo Buddies?
As if I had Tuerettes . . . . . . . .

The constant picking of my scalp. I have a lot of little tiny pimples and I keep feeling my scalp for them.
Marijuana . . . . . Causing a Spike in Hypnic Jerksdope« on: July 26, 2016, 02:49:04 pm »
I smoked a bit last night and a few hours later as I tried to sleep the hypnic jerks were worse than ever.

I have long standing anxiety/addiction problems. Currently alcohol dependent, I was prescribed a short term course of lorezapam (6 week). I’ve had truly horrible withdrawal symptoms from that, despite careful tapering, ending up in a and e with extreme muscle spasms and convulsive twitching that lasted over 24 hours. Also became disassociative and was hearing voices. Very distressing.I have been given Chlordiazepoxide 5mg 3xdaily but am only taking 2x daily. Also drinking 2-3 bottles of white wine daily. Due to have structured alcohol detox using tapering with Chlordiazepoxide and know I will need support.
