Riding the wave again!

He Buddies,

 

I had a window that lasted for several weeks and thought I was over the hump! But, the symptoms have a way of coming back and biting me on the butt!

 

Head pressure, face breaking out, little sleep, dizziness, and ears hissing loudly! Stomach issues and fear I’m dying as well! Has anyone had that long of a window and had these moderate symptoms come back? I would appreciate any input.

 

I’m 6 1/2 months since I had my last dose of Valium. I’m grateful for the 3 week window and pray it returns soon!

 

My symptoms are a little less severe and I am functional. That’s a good thing!

 

Wishing everyone well, Sandy

You KNOW you will feel good again. I hate it so much too when I have a good spell only to be hit by a truck again. Its like we forget that we even had a window!

Oh Sandy I  just read your thread,

 

I am so sorry it's back after your window, 

 

I am glad at least that the symptoms are moderate and I do hope they fade again for you quickly as they have in the past

 

Thinking of you , lovely lady, You have such a kind heart 

 

Jen

Hello there,

I am on a similar boat. It's been 6 months since my last dose of benzo (still tapering amitriptyline). I have been doing reasonably well in months 4 and 5 (only minor waves). Then got a nasty wave in month 6 (it started 1 week ago). The "funny" thing is that I have one day good followed by 1 day bad, then another good day followed by another bad day, etc. It's like something is oscillating in my CNS.

I take comfort from the fact that my tinnitus, depression and anxiety have all been really low today. Not completely gone, but noticeably lower than usual. Who knows what tomorrow will be like.

As you write: riding the wave again (and again!).

Hope tomorrow is better, Surreyguy! I’m having moderate head pressure and fluctuating blood pressure today. I’m like you, one day ok and the next very challenging!

 

Wishing you well, Sandy :thumbsup:

Hey Sandy

I have a bit of head pressure too.

Today things were not so bad with depression, anxiety and tinnitus all relatively low but insomnia has caught up with me. I tend to wake up at 03:00 and can't go back to sleep.

Again, go figure... one symptom goes, another one comes...

It's 100% prof Ashton text book...

I felt pretty much completely healed and had a month here and there of no symptoms. I’m on month 7 of the worst wave I have ever had and I am 30 months off.
