Kooks come up with new benzo withdrawal symptom: benzo cough (but it’s really mass psychogenic illness manifesting)

Does anyone have a benzo cough?

I have really been suffering with this cough now since October of 2020. It’s so bad that it causes me to wheeze and it usually comes on at bedtime so it makes it very difficult to sleep too. I’m just wondering if anyone else has a bad cough they’re dealing with. I actually started to develop this cough after the doctor had prescribed some amitriptyline for me that threw me back into withdrawal. I’m just wondering when this might end. Also, was there anything you could do to make it any easier? It just seems to go on and on.

I too have a tickle/cough and have had it on and off for about 3 years. Sometimes it’s worse but then just like that it’s gone for awhile. Comes at different times of year. It’s very perplexing.
