Back of Head, Neck Crackling , Popping


[wh...]

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have this ?  I hear it when I move my head from side to side or when I am half asleep.  Also fizzing sensation in back of head and ears fee like they are being tugged at.  :-[

Yes, I hear that too.  I didn't notice it when I was taking benzos, so either the benzos were masking the sensation (or the remembrance of the sensation), or this is yet another quirky withdrawal thing.  I'm 2.3 years off benzos and consider myself fully healed, so I'm tempted to believe that it's not related to withdrawal. 

 

The ear thing is more likely benzo-withdrawal related.

ok ty soooo much !!  I am so happy that you are healed !  Maybe the crackling has something to do with sitting at a desk all day.  It is so tempting to attribute all of this to w/d.  The other stuff has to be as I never had it before in my life.  :)  When did you turn a corner if you don't mind me asking ?    :)

I have this too but I had it also while taking Benzos and its stayed the same whether on or off. I have somewhat concluded that it's not Benzo related but I suppose it's possible it's somehow related to Benzo use

I didn't so much turn a corner as I steadily improved.  Month 1 was bad; month 2 was a little better...  By the end of month 3, most of my shaking and palps and sweats were gone, but I was still super sensitive to any stress (and very low energy).  That lasted (with gradual improvement) until 6-7 months out.  Then I only reacted poorly to more significant stress.  As time has gone on, my ability to handle significant stress has improved to where it now takes something major to set me back.  But that's no different than with most people.

I have it, it drives me insane. It began while tapering and never had it before. It's WD

Thank you, at least we know it is nothing life threatening  :smitten:
