That varies widely from person to person, but I think the last thing to get better (if it wasn't preexisting) is sleep?

 

Of course anything preexisting such as specific conditions, ailments, or medical issues that you had prior to Benzos will most likely still be there after you heal as Benzos don't heal or fix anything. 

 

Going through WD gives most the ability to deal with preexisting conditions a lot better?

 

For me it was sleep.  Not sure what it is for others.  But remember that WD is unique to you.  Yes, there are lots of universal symptoms that many experience, but your WD is unique to you.

I did have brain zaps while tapering but no electric feeling. The depression and anxiety are the last two and are fading at similar rates and come and go in waves. I'm sure I have things that are close to the surface and might get triggered under more stress too.
