About 3 months ago I started having severe anxiety and panic attacks. My doctor put me on Lorazepam as needed and temazepam to sleep. I was on them for 2 1/2 months before I tapered ( to fast I think) I only took 2 weeks to taper off 3 mg of Ativan and 30mg of temazepam daily. Before I tapered my doctor put me on leapfrog I have been on that for almost 5 weeks. It has been two weeks since I have fully quit benzodiazepines and I am having horrible anxiety, burning sensations all over my body, shortness of breath and chest tightness and pain along with numbness and tingling in my face, arms, legs, feet, and hands. I was checked out fully in April (3 months ago) had every Mri or work up you can think of all came back ok. How long will these withdrawal symptoms last and is it normal after only a couple months of use to have these symptoms so strong?
