Middle finger twitch added to list of 90,000,000 benzo withdrawal symptoms

New Physical Symptom: Pain in hand, middle finger

I started taking ginkgo 8 days ago. I have noticed a shift from extreme mental symptoms to physical symptoms. One symptom is a pain in my right hand that leads to my middle finger. The finger is hard to bend all of a sudden and it’s become hard to type as a result. Has anyone experienced this? It may be time to stop the ginkgo.

This might be a case of you having just injured it without knowing it. Don’t be quick to blame withdrawal or the ginko for everything.
When I was at my son’s house my whole right arm from the elbow down swelled up and hurt really bad. After a few hours I remembered/realized I had played a little rough with their dog and he was play biting. I hadn’t realized it at the time but then the swelling and pain started about an hour later.

The middle finger on my right hand feels almost arthritic, and when I try to use the mouse on my computer, it basically twitches in a weird way. This is the first time I’ve had this symptom. I have a feeling it’s related to withdrawal. Not sure though.

At the moment I’m going through a crying phase where I can cry for hours…then it stops..thoughts change…then it creeps up again.

I just cant help the crying. Does anyone else have this? I prefer the emotional blunting

This is directed towards the girls :) but I suppose it could happen to men too.

I have had tender breasts for some time now and wondered if I should get this checked out or if it is something that resolves spontaneously. Have been really fatigued, and hot flashes.

Best to all. :smitten:

Hey all,

This burping withdrawal symptom is nuts.

Anyone else burping all the time?

I just wondering if it is benzo related or if I need to see a doctor – I really am tired of seeing doctors.

I burped like crazy Feb-recently when I did my first taper (too large) of Klonopin… it took a while to settle down but did…. note I had pre-existing GI issues which caused me to start the Klonopin to begin with in January….

Frequent urination

Hi

On this past Sunday I dropped my klonopin from .25 mg to .125 mg and four days later ( Tuesday) I started having to go to the bathroom like four or five times an hour. If I drink water I have to pee minutes later and it’s usually only a little bit. Is this from the withdrawal? I am worried because I also have a herniated disc which can cause bladder problems but I went and had an MRI and they said it wasn’t the disc. So now I’m wondering if it’s a withdrawal symptom.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Thanks

Yes. It’s fairly common in withdrawal as the adrenal system is impacted. The hormone aldosterone is secreted by the adrenals and helps retain sodium and prevent excessive urination. I went through this and had to take desmopressin to control it. It will improve as adrenal function normalizes.  :)–V
