I was on 2mg Ativan for about 7 months and my doctor reduced it to 1mg and eventually I was put on Valium as it has longer half life. I have been benzo-free since 2012 April. There's one thing that is bothers me. I get like an electric shock sensation and it last for couple of seconds and i remain conscious during the time. When that happens my upper body twitches but it only happens when I fell like I'm about to fall asleep or it happens after few minutes after waking up. It is reoccurring thing too. I remember once I woke up middle of the night extremely exhausted. Have anyone had this type of experience and could that be a type of an epileptic symptoms?
