For me, benzo belly is a huge belly, like pregnant, i gets bigger with stress, everytime i eat and drink.
I think it is not only gas i there, also fluid. the core muscles get also tight like a spasm. It is very uncomfortable, sometimes i have shortness of breath when i walk. It is also painfull and makes life not great.

I have had benzo belly on and off.
Some months I can’t close my pants and I look like in about to give birth to twin ponies.
And other times my pants just fall off my behind.

The bloating feeling is really upsetting.

I think in general benzo belly is the accumulated fat around that area , to do with cortisol.
But people who are bloated and swollen also refer to it as benzo belly?

Yeah, benzo belly… I’ve got it. It does not matter how well I eat or how much I work out. The belly will not reduce. It is maddening.

I’ve had benzo belly for quite a long time. It doesn’t seem that gas causes it for me. I can go to the bathroom fine, but even when my stomach is empty, it feels full. There’s also discomfort there. I noticed yesterday that there was a lessening of discomfort, and my lower back felt better also. It seems that there might be a connection there. I wish it would go away.

Does anyone else have few hunger pangs? I get a hunger pang every once in awhile. I could go 12 hours without eating, and I wouldn’t get a hunger pang. I never know when I’m really hungry. At times I’ve gone too long without eating or haven’t eaten enough. and I start feeling weak. Then I have to eat right away.

Like […], I feel even more full after eating even when eating a small meal.

BENZO CULT LINGO A-Z

Psychiatrist Robert Jay Lifton defines “loaded language” as a technique used in brainwashing.

5150’d – getting locked away in a psychiatric ward, see The Funny House

Benzo Belly – gastroenterologic system affected, including the organs from mouth to anus

Benzo Brain – persistent or intermittent combination of symptoms originating from inside the head, head pressure, vestibular system disturbance and psychiatric disturbances

Benzo Flu – anything, anything at all

Healing Happens – meaningless

Kpin – the medication Klonopin

PDOCS – see psychs

Psychs – psychiatrists and psychologists (Seen by the paranoid cult as being the ultimate in evil and corruption on Earth; out to destroy us all by cutting out our brains with transorbital lobotomies, or zapping us into submission with electro-convulsive therapy (ECT), or zombifying us with selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors (SSRIs) like Ritalin and Prozac. The cult front-group called the Citizen’s Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), a la Orwell, is dedicated to destroying these evil beings known as psychs, but who are really members of the fifth galactic invader force.)

SP – Suppressive Person, an evil person; someone who criticizes Scientology in any way

Squirrel – In cult jargon, squirrel refers to someone who is too insane to follow Standard Scientology Tech

The Funny House – a psychiatric ward

Wave – a period of feeling badly after feeling better; this is fairly common because withdrawal is not linear

Window – a period of time where one has relief from symptoms; maybe not complete relief but a noticeable break in symptoms

Homeopathy conference ends in chaos after delegates take hallucinogenic drug

An alternative medicine conference has ended in chaos in Germany after dozens of delegates took a LSD-like drug and started suffering from hallucinations.

Broadcaster NDR described the 29 men and women “staggering around, rolling in a meadow, talking gibberish and suffering severe cramps”.

The group of “Heilpraktikers” was discovered at the hotel where they held their conference in the town of Handeloh, south of Hamburg, on Friday. More than 150 medical staff, ambulances and police descended on the scene and took the raving delegates to hospital.

The patients, aged between 24 and 56, were found suffering from delusions, breathing problems, racing hearts and cramps, with some in a serious condition, Deutsche Welle reported.

Tests on their blood and urine revealed they had all taken hallucinogenic drug 2C-E, which is known as Aquarust in Germany and has been illegal there since the end of last year.

No one recovered sufficiently to be interviewed by police until Monday, a spokesperson said.

Torsten Passie, a member of the German government’s expert commission for narcotics, told NDR: “It must have been a multiple overdose. That does not support the view that the people concerned took the hallucinogen knowingly. One has to assume that people were not told about the substance, its effects and risks before taking it.”

Police are reportedly looking into possibilities including the drug being taken as a joint experiment, or it being furtively given to conference participants as a prank.

No arrests have yet been made as the investigation continues into a possible violation of Germany’s Narcotics Act.

The Association of German Healing Practitioners (VDH), which represents homeopaths as well as other naturopaths, quickly distanced itself from the embarrassment.

In a statement, it said none of its representatives took hallucinogens during the “incident” in Handeloh.

“The organisers of this obscure conference are unknown to us and such events will not be tolerated by our Association,” a spokesperson said.

“Unfortunately, the conference in Handeloh has severely damaged the image of the alternative medicine profession…and we have clarified that such acts are not in the spirit of natural therapy, and contradict our values both morally and legally. The Association of German Healing Practitioners (Heilpraktikers) detests such misdemeanors.”

The British Government’s drug advisory service, Frank, describes 2C-E as a psychedelic and hallucinogenic stimulant that has effects “somewhere between ecstasy and LSD”.

Anyone taking it experiences a buzz and feeling of being “alive and in tune with their surroundings”, their colours and smells.

It can also cause hallucinations, sexual arousal, hypersensitivity and other effects that become “more intense and uncontrollable” with higher doses.

The drug is classed as relatively new by Frank and not widely available in the UK, but is illegal as part of the phenethylamine family as a class A drug.

From 100-150mg of Valium a day (plus stacks of painkillers and alcohol.)

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.

I used to take a handful in the morning then bump it all day and night by snorting more.

My symptoms are :

Thee world is swimming
Feel depersonalised
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
Dilated pupils
Vertigo
Brain zaps
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
Leg cramps
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 […].

I came off Vicodin, alcohol, soma, ambien and finally xanax.

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.
