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.

    Fantastic interview! I am about halfway through and look forward to listening to the rest but I just wanted to say that it is incredibly validating to hear a medical doctor say that this is indeed a NEUROLOGICAL INJURY (25:47 in the podcast). They also talk about how recovery is very NONLINEAR. Very important for folks who are doubting their symptoms and the recovery process.

    Amazing that a few clued up docs know the score with these drugs while the rest of them go about their practices cluelessly prescribing these powerful psychoactive drugs that can actually injure people.

    The world can now expect “neurological injury” and “non-linear healing” to be two upcoming & misused buzzwords for the benzo community.
