Yeah, I have this. I didn't CT as CT isn't recommended for several reasons, but being as it's been 10 months since you stopped, this is a classic WD sx. I have this in two 'different' ways. My right side is pretty badly affected, and I 'flop' over onto my right side even when I am sat down. The other form of this swaying thing is the particularly nasty result of a mix of no sleep, my other issues playing up and my WD sxs. It's where I can't stand up at all, start seeing 'stars' and darkness, and if I don't sit down quickly once I get this, I'll land up collapsing. For me this is not 100% Benzo WD related as I had it on occasions before, related to my 'unidentified condition', but Benzo WD has made it 100 times worse.

 

I am trying some basic balance exercises to try and correct my 'flopping' issue. This includes trying to stand on one foot for around 5 seconds per foot, and putting a few objects in a straight line and trying to walk along them in a straight line, like a cop doing a roadside drunk test lol. Sounds silly, but it is helping a tiny bit as I do stagger everywhere and fall into things. You can find all sorts of balance exercises online too. It reminds me sometimes of when I had an attack of Labrynthitis from an ear infection after a cold. If this sx is particularly troublesome it may be worth getting your ears checked by your doctor, as inner ear inflammation and infection can also worsen this.

Hi MarieElla, when I went through my first two tapers, I had this feeling really bad, especially when I was down far in dosage, it was like, I would be walking and my head was being pulled backwards, sometimes it felt like almost to the floor, and when I sat in a chair I was hunched over like a very old lady, and I could not straighten up.

 

I had to reinstate twice because of an impending Stroke, it was my life or the Stroke, so this is my third taper, it is like night and day and I am going slower and just having blips, but I will never forget that feeling of being pulled backward and forward, and it was like a little death, hope you get better soon. :)

How did you know you were nearing an impending stroke?

Hi,Trying, because I lost all feeling on my left side, and could not speak and had a terrible headache I was transported two different times to ER and kept for a number of days and they got my B/P down, and the Doctor advised me that I had gone too fast and cut too much and that if I wanted to recover, I would have to reinstate, and I am telling you this was from stress to my body, it was not an w/d problem, and so I did, and that is how I knew, with rest and a change of medication for my B/P I have been fine since, but it was really scary. Life changing in fact.
