Hi everyone,

Are you telling to your GP when you going to talk to him about a symptom like blood pressure spikes, headache, etc you are on withdrawal?

I’m afraid to tell to my GP when I’m going with blood pressure problem because the previous one want to send me back to psychiatric doctor after 5 month off when I was still in strong symptoms.

I don’t go to my GP or to psychiatrist because I would probably not tell them nice things about what I think about them, their profession and their knowledge.

I know what you mean. I thought long time same. Now I’m just afraid to go because I not want to hear any bad.

I avoid GP unless essential visit. No point. Just stresses me out.

My advice is, YES, tell your GP that you know why you are having high BP and anxiety issues. Tell him that you have been doing a lot of homework that most in his profession don’t even bother to do. I have almost developed the opinion that if I want to get sick, go visit the doctor! If your GP gives you any condescending comments or shows any sign of brushing your concerns off as if you don’t know what you are talking about………Find another doctor!

My GP is a good guy, who’s been doing this for 30 years, but has NEVER seen a reaction like mine.
he kinda sits there befuddled as i describe all this to him. im like “dude, im TELLIN ya im not exaggerating, and then i ramble for 10 minutes on the horror.”
He sorta skeptically believes me, and he actually feels bad, takes some responsibility. in my case, i tell him its not his fault because my whole ordeal im convinced was brought on with insane levels of binge drinking the last two years before i went sober. my alcohol withdrawal melded right into my benzo withdrawal.

hes doing what he can, taking frequent blood tests, monitoring my bp and all, but hes pretty uncertain on just what the hell to do with me. when im really struggling, hes like, well, the number one thing you need you cant take now.

its the irony of my life that 5 years ago i went completely sober, got in the gym, hit it hard, changed so many things in my life to try and “see the light” as i cruise through my 40’s…and its been an absoulte unholy hell since the day i put a beer down, quite frankly…and ive never felt as effed up in my life as i have when i went straight….yeah…

My back molar cracked in half. So I got a filling. Then an infection in the tooth. Took antibiotics for three weeks (caught strep at the same time this is why so long on antibiotics)
Then my tooth still hurts but I’ve read that a root canal can have negative effects on our body (not withdrawal or benzo related) do I opted for getting it taken out except my stomach has been hurting and I’ve had a hard time breathing and felt like headed that I started thinking maybe my h pylori is still there and now I have bad thoughts that I have a bleeding ulcer.
So now my thoughts are :
1. Bleeding ulcer
2. H pylori still present
3. Tooth infection causing light headbess, nerve pain, etc.

I feel like nothing I do is right
If I fix one thing
Something else goes wrong
I can’t take this
I’m so scared 😖

Kook petition for independent inquiry into benzodiazepines fails miserably

“The horrific life-destroying implications of benzodiazepines have been known about for decades and yet the medical profession remain largely in denial of the damage. The doctors are in denial not us. They conspired with Big Pharma to turn us into accidental addicts. Blah blah blah. The Department of Health, the BMA, and Parliament have a duty to give justice to those whose lives have been ruined. Blah blah. There must be an inquiry for the sake of future generations and for those undergoing the horrific consequences of this iatrogenically induced pandemic. Iatrogenic? Big word that means the doctors did it and we hate them. Pandemic? An epidemic of infectious disease that has spread throughout the world? Get a grip.”

https://www.change.org/p/health-select-committee-an-independent-inquiry-into-benzodiazepines

Even though it is a UK petition, signatures are being solicited, at secret online sites, not only from UK, but also from U.S. and Canadian, citizens. At last count they had 604 signatures. Their goal is 1000. One of the doctor-bashing groups claims to have over 1500 members but can’t even rouse a significant percentage of its members to sign the petition (they don’t have 1500 active members). Benzo Buddies claims 28,000 members but over 90% of the listed membership never posts, or has posted once, and ran from the site screaming (it is rumored Benzo Buddies even keeps deceased members on the membership rolls). If Benzo Buddies had that many members it would be very easy to get 5,000 of them to sign a petition that bashes doctors — some movement. It is as fake as their claims Big Pharma targeted them.

  • UK population 64 million
  • U.S. population 319 million
  • Canadian population 36 million

That is to say, out of a combined total population of 419 million only 604 people signed this garbage. What percentage is that? Pathetic is not even the right word to describe this.

Medication helps people live productive lives.

Dental pain?

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.

Zopiclone causes cancer? Hardly.

Pretty sure I've got cancer...

Pretty sure if I do it is from Zopiclone.

I’ve had rashes all over my body for years, along with a swollen gland in my neck (lmyth node) for about 3 years (did you go to a doctor? or, were you brainwashed, by Benzo Buddies, not to? – editor)

Getting tested for Cutaneous T-cell lymphoma Having a biopsy on my glands and skin this week

Had blood tests today, should get the results from that in a few days

What’s the pointing of existing when nothing is getting better? I am so sick and tired of this and there’s nothing anybody can write to make me feel better. Sick and tired of this hell. I didn’t sign up for this, I am tired, tired, tired. It’s all temporary. Yeah, right. I hate this, hate this, hate this.

Maybe I should just stop taking the stupid pills and whatever happens, happens…..
