Have just done a rapid detox « on: May 19, 2013, 06:49:32 am »
Wow. Feeling awful. I was in there for two weeks and they dropped me down so fast. I had a couple of really bad days in the hospital but its now that I am home (stayed 2 weeks in detox) that the symptoms are really kicking in. I knew it would
Be like this as I have attempted to quit cold turkey before and couldn’t handle it so started drinking heavily and taking painkillers which just led me back to using Valium again.
My symptoms are :
Thee world is swimming
Sense of unreality
Restless legs and well, restless everythjbg.
Random twitches and spasms in my body evey 20 seconds or so
Feel like everything under my skin is buzzing and sometimes burning
I have no emotions
Headaches that I know only Valium will take away
Finding it hard to sleep and never feel restless
Constant tooth grinding for the last 5 days
I get this numb, nearly like I’m going blind behind my eyes
Tremors and shaking
I’m sure there’s more.
This is awful!!!! I can’t handle it. My hubby has to go back to work tomorrow and I have to look after our 5 kids.

Do you still have medical guidance and have you been told what to expect after those two weeks you stayed in detox?It all seems like ‘normal’ symptoms but if I were you I would seek medical help. Good luck!

No. I live in the country and the doctors here have said they don’t know much about Benzos. Also, I asked so many times at the hospital in the city about the coming weeks and none of them were willing to have a bar of the fact that symtoms can go on for along time after, and infact only really start at the 2 week mark sometimes.
From what I read, it is ‘normal’ but I just feel so terrible and I can’t function. I have 5 kids to look after

I feel for ya […].
BUT I did them one at a time over a couple of years. The benzo
was last and definitely the hardest.
To do it all at once in 2 weeks is nothing short of sock treatment.
I only have a few minor symptoms left and doing the best I have in years.
Best wishes and hang in there.
