I desperately need any .thoughts on this


Recommended Posts

In the beginning on the year I had a root canal and that's where every thing started. I got hot and cold flashes and then left side of my face was numb, it seem to lesson in time. Also other procedures were done to the same tooth that caused stressed. I was on lexapro then zoloft while taking klonopin as well. I notice a week after taking lexapro I couldn't breathe right through my nose. I was also taking klonopin. All together I took klonopin for 3 and half months and then substituted it for gabapentin and ativan (generic). This my problem I have facial  and neck tightness and numbness on my nose which causes the most distress. Cant breath through my nose right. After seeing every specialist and doing different test I suspect klonopin or any benzo or gaba med to be causing this. I have no idea what else it could be. I have no pain just tightness and numbness. I thought it was nerve damage from the dental visit but now I think it was the meds. Im currently seeing another neurologist and she cant pinpoint exactly whats wrong so im taking mra mri spin and EMG test. any thoughts:

Benzo w/d has made various parts of my face go numb on and off, even still at almost 6 months out.  I have a lot of difficulty breathing since Detox too.  Definitely feel stuffed up which makes it hard to breath through my nose.  I have also had a lot of benzo related tooth/jaw/sinus pain from benzos both while in tolerance w/d and after detoxing off them.  Hope that helps you.
