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 😖

Hi,

Does anyone know if drinking tap water could be more harmful after benzo withdrawal? I don’t know if this is just my anxiety or if I should look into getting a water filter? I’m especially worried because I’m having issues with hydration right now where I feel constantly dehydrated so I’m drinking a lot. I’m not sure if it’s okay to be flooding my body with tap water day after day. Thanks!

Hey guys, I’ve been taking .25 of Xanax for 1 month now. I want to taper off. My doctor thinks I will be fine just stopping cold turkey but I don’t feel ok with that. I began tapering last week taking 3/4 of a .25 by breaking it up into 4 peices. Did that seven days. Now taking 1/2 of .25 plan to do this for 7 days. Then take only 1/4 of .25 for a week then stop. Could someone tell me is this a good taper plan? I have heard some scary stories of tapering that makes me nervous. Let me know any advice please guys. Thank you!
