I’ve dealt with it/deal with it. It’s been horrific. Extremely destabilized nervous system.

It’s really common for people in the throes of benzo withdrawal to have a really difficult time, sometimes even impossible to shower.

Yes, i suffer from severe heat intolerance ever since starting benzo’s. 3 years off clonazepam and i still can’t handle a hot shower or warm weather in general.
Heat triggers my orthostatic intolerance / POTS. My veins swell up like crazy and hurt, then my heart rate goes up, i feel dizzy and sick. The only think that then helps is to lay down in bed for the rest of the day with the airconditioning at the lowest setting.

I manage a bath about ever three weeks atm because the look and sound of the water terrifies me.

Super-long benzo taper produces hallucinations, twitching over entire body, inability to sleep, hundreds of doctor visits

Bucksfan - going off clonazepam (20 years) need help please.

hi. my name is mike and i have been on clonazepam for 20 years (1 mg) and am tapering off it (down to 0.5 mg). i and am very sick and i think i have been in withdrawal for 15 years and never knew it. i have had hundreds of doctor visits and many hundreds of blood tests and they can’t find anything wrong with me.

the symptoms i have been having for 15 years are:

-terrible inflammation in my joints especially my sacrum and shoulders, neck and spine. has recently moved to my toe and sometimes my kness
-terrible and excruciating muscle spasms in my back, shoulders, right toe and my sacrum
cannot sleep (4-10 hours per a week maybe)
-terrible pain in my right toe (epsom salt seems to help).
terrible constipation (seriously feel like i am gonna die from this)
-ears ringing
-incontinence and trouble urinating
-random fluttering heart palpitations
random twitching of muscles all over the body when i feel like i might have to go to the bathroom (#2)
audible hallucinations (sounds like someone is clapping to boards together right when someone first starts talking. it’s a loiud CRACK! type noise
visual hallucinations – when my dose gets to low to fast (was down to 1/4 mg) the wood panel on the door looked like a conveyer belt moving
feel like my brain is floating outside of my head in the upper right front part.
-my face feels hot while at the same time my body feels cold and my temp drops to 96.3 randomly

the reason i think the clonazepam is causing all this is because i forgot to take a dose a few years a go and as the day went on my muscles loostened up and i could urinate properly. then i realized i forgot to take the dose. so i took the dose immediately and about 20 minutes after taking the dose my ears started ringing, i tried to uirinate and it was difficult again and then about 45 mins later my back muscles spasm’d as well.

so i was’t sure at the time why i felt better and then i missed a dose again and i felt better again – exact same thing as before.

then it happened again and that was when i thought wait.. maybe it is this clonazepam that is making me sick? so i intentionally didn’t take a dose for a couple hours and felt great and then i consciously remembered how i felt before taking the dose compared to afterward and it was apparent that this drug was making me sick all these years.

for the last 20 years i have been on it i have had terrible muscle spasms and i now suspect it has been this all along. can anyone confirm this might be the cause? the doctors cannot figure anything out except when i get too inflamed they give me prednisone which drops the inflammation and then the muscle spams stop.

so i started to taper off it about a year and a half ago and i am having terrible time with this.

can anyone help me with the terrible muscle spams and sleep problems or general advise.

I am having problems sleeping with 22.5 mg oxazepam. The doctor does not want me to back to 25mg but she wants to give me sleeping meds. I cannot tolarate Remeron and do not want other sleeping meds.

What is your experience with the valerian root, please? It helped me last night but i remember reading it here that its not good…what is the problem if you take it?

Wishing healing to all,
