Yes, they say my chest discomfort is from my anxiety disorder and no, it has not gone away. I am still struggling with this sx. My taper is almost complete I think. I am on about 1.5 mgs of V but I have felt horrible the entire time. I also wish I could sleep more and that the quality of my sleep was better.

 Antibenzos, I never felt human during my taper. It was one of those put one foot in front of the other to get through each day. My entire focus was how horrible I felt, as it engulfed my mind. Even though sleep is still quite elusive, I don't feel as bad as I did during my taper and initial completed withdrawal. Each day brings on a new and better feeling. It's not obvious, but quite subtle.  In all honesty, I believe if I slept well constantly, I would feel quite amazing. The tinnitus I can ignore most of the time, the dizziness is manageable, the muscle jerks at [...] definitely interfere with my sleep, so I can't ignore those. I've been having irregular heartbeats lately. Not sure why, as they were at their worst when I was on the drugs. The cardiologist and PCP never mentioned it could be from the benzos. I just figured that out when I found this site and started reading posts.

7 ... after months of 0-1 and months at 2-6, I consider 7 hours of broken sleep good at a 7 this 5th month since CT.
