Today starts 15 weeks since my cold turkey stop. Main symptoms remaining: Abdominal Pain - spasms, cramps, gas. Nausea, Anxiety, Fatigue, Weakness, Headaches, Tremors, Generally Sick. Some of these are a little better at times. The abdominal issues effect my sleep, which increase anxiety, and that makes the abdominal issues worse, a vicious circle.
I was on 45mg for 7 years and 7.5mg for 1 year. I tried twice. I slept well last night, and so far today it hasn't been too bad. June 27 will be 4 months, and I will start posting by the month until I am past this. This has been a horrible experience. When you are in pain, time seems to stop, and time is what it takes. I don't guess that I am very encouraging, as I don't know when it will end for me, but I can tell you that it isn't as bad as it has been. One of the worse things is that after a while, you will have a day that is a little better, only to have the next day right back to horrible. That has been really rough for me. Good luck to you all, be kind to yourself, and just do the best you can. Don't look at the benchmarks of others and expect the same for you, as everyone progresses at their own rate, and with their own symptoms, and their body's response to those symptoms. Regards, David
