Brain Hypersensitivity and Tension/Pressure Headaches and Sensitivity to TV
« on: May 08, 2019, 11:09:21 pm »
Anyone else experiencing Tension/Pressure that hits you like a wave on the top of your head where it feels like someone is pushing you down? It’s really scary, I get dizzy and can’t walk. I also am really sensitive to noises (had to turn off the clocks in my house). And I am unusually sensitive/emotional to watching TV and news, I just feel very anxious and I cry when I normally NEVER cry, so I stopped watching it.
But, I am a HUGE Game of Thrones fan and it’s been really difficult/scary for me to watch the show because I get so much anxiety and I am scared I will have a stroke in my brain because it feels so weird! I feel like I know what part of my brain is being triggered with each different emotion. Anxiety/Stress gives me crazy Tension/Pressure Headaches, the other emotions feel like my brain is being stimulated with vibrations. Or I have goosebumps/chills in my brain (best way I can describe it), it’s just really weird and scary!
I’m scared to see my friends because I don’t know what emotion will be triggered with what they talk about or ask me, and how my brain is going to react to it! Has anyone else experienced this? If so, how long does it last? And do you have any coping tips or know of an OTC or herbal remedy? HELP!
I’m scared that this is permanent. I have been abusing Xanax for 13 years and started smoking marijuana, heavily for the past 2 years. I have a very high tolerance. The past 4 months I was pretty much smoking marijuana ALL DAY and night since I had really bad insomnia and was taking anywhere from 2 1/2-4 mgs of Xanax. About a month and a half ago I quit marijuana and smoking cigarettes, cold turkey. And decided to start tapering off Xanax by.25mg each week, but I started at 2mgs. And I think I reduced it too quickly and also the withdrawal from marijuana, I feel has magnified my withdrawal symptoms.
I feel like I’m going crazy and turning into a major hermit out of fear. Can anyone help, please? 🙏

Does anyone feel like jello moves around the brain with head compression usually on the back or scalp? I’ve noticed a trend.. the stomach cramps for a while,
Then I get some parasthesia in my abdomen and legs, then my chest.. then the stomach stops cramping but the brain starts squeezing.. it’s a cycle.. sometimes all at once but usually like this. First GI issues second parasthesia third head compression.. jello brain
Has anyone ever looked into a leaking Blood Brain Barrier?

I see alot of similarities between our symptoms and people who have a leaky blood brain barrier.. I also see a connection between people who develop alzheimers who have the leaky BBB. This would explain people’s food sensitivities along with chronic fatigue syndrome

I think you are onto something. Have been looking into leaky gut, and then found that changing my diet to a GAPS Intro Diet (all soup broth, meat, few veggies, super low inflammation), changed my symptoms. And now I think it is leaky brain.
The doctors say I shouldn’t be having this hard of a time with WD, and that I must be ‘sensitive’ to benzo’s.
I know your post is old but if you found anything out on this, I would be interested, and will be looking into it.

Photo, you did say you were begging God to die when you were C/T’d off of 3mg Xanax. Some of us wouldn’t have to beg God to die off of that dose. Some of us would have actually died from that kind of cold turkey. 3mg Xanax is 6mg Ativan. If I had to C/T off of that much, I would no longer be on this Earth. It would have been too much for my body to handle. Some people like yourself have the genetic makeup to physically endure being on those kinds of doses. Many of us could not do that.
no wonder i am such a severe case and taking so long to heal. c/td from 30 mg valium – 1750mg soma and 2mg xanax after being on a […] high dose of klonopin. i tried to do a successful cross over from klonopin to valium but couldn’t get lower than 30 mg. sorry, just had to vent on how much i did such a stupid thing. why didn’t ANYONE tell me something else? i’m surprised i am not dead. i wish to God i was only on 3mg xanax or 6 mg ativan instead. by the way the last day of all the benzo’s i was on – i had taken some ativan in my cocktail. know this is a debate kind of thread but i just had to vent off LF’s post.
my poor brain.
Anyone have this please!

I have been experiencing involuntary movements of my head vigorously swaying back and forth in a large big circle while my eyes kind of roll in my head?
What am I experiencing? This is A very old sx that just came back…. Terrified

Then I had involuntary body movements where all my limbs starting jerking and contorting…. Face dystonic ally spasming head jerking back jaw stuck wide open with load moaning and vocal tics…
This all came back when I did an updose and am now holding about 5 days…
Please respond on your thoughts
I must be the only one on here so unbelievably brain damaged from what I can tell

Does anyone else have a fear of going insane?
« on: February 01, 2016, 09:41:37 pm »
Does anyone else have a fear of losing their mind? I’m so scared throughout this whole thing that I’m going to go insane. I’m so terrified of it. That and a huge fear of psychosis. Lately I’ve just had a need to write my fears down, to see if anyone else going through this can relate. I swear sometimes all that I’m enduring is so bizarre and horrifying and just unimaginable. I can’t describe it more but sometimes I just get this feeling along with just a huge fear of it that I’m actually or going to actually lose my mind. I had this much worse at about 3 months off but it’s come and gone all throughout my withdrawal. It’s been especially bad during this past couple of weeks after the emergence of tremors which I hadn’t had since cold turkey and once exactly one month out. Does anyone else get this too? I’m so tired of feeling terrified of things I had never even thought of ever in my life before this horrific nightmare. I literally feel poisoned, and as though my brain is melted in spots, damaged beyond repair. I’m sorry for so many posts lately. And I’m sorry if this one makes me sound crazy. I’m just doing the best that I can to get through it. If you can share feeling similarly to anything I’ve written above it will be so very greatly appreciated. I just really need to feel like I’m not alone in this today. Thank you so much.

And sometimes I do go just a little bit insane, I’m glad there’s only my dog here to see me sometimes. One thing though, that helps…The Buddhist thing: everything changes, nothing stays the same for long…That goes for the bad, as well as the good. So I know that even if I do feel kind of out of my mind today, I also know that the next hour, the next afternoon, the next night, the next day, the next week…it will change. It’s what I count on while I try to stay in the moment and not fight anything, but just try to relax into it, this helps me get through. Just my thoughts.
