Healing definitely isnít linear. Some days I feel so off balance, dizzy and headaches a lot which increases my anxiety. Can only 2 months on this stuff have the effect still?

Your brain is busy getting its normal function back, it takes time to rebuild the pathways the drug disrupted.  What you're feeling is absolutely normal, you'll get there.   :thumbsup:

Thank you for your kind words. Docs donít understand this and Iíve been to Drs and ENT who are clueless but I have this weird thing where my head feels like itís pulsing like a heart beat (it doesnít hurt). Iím always rocking on a boat. Itís not vertigo. Itís like my eyes are moving in my head but not physically too. I also have this ďfalling sensationĒ in my head. Idk how to explain. My mind and body donít collab sometimes. It takes a second. I multi task a lot and itís hard to do that right now. Maybe something vestibular. I can walk fine

The descriptions our members come up with to describe this experience are amazing but the best part of it is, there is always someone who can relate, who has the exact same thing.  We may not share every symptom in common but it helps to tamp down the fear when we can find someone who can relate.

Is it a boaty feeling, there is a thread in Support Groups that talks about symptoms you're describing. http://www.benzobuddies.org/forum/index.php?topic=128947.0

I figured out the boaty/dizzy feeling. Iíve developed a vestibular disorder. Vestibular hypersensitivity, decomposition and central maladaptation. Itís a functional connectivity problem and things arenít processing right. Iím overstimulated easily and then Iíll get dizzy and my body goes into fight or flight. I hope someone can give me some insight on this and if itís permanent. My PT said it wasnít but itís going to take some time. Has anyone else had vestibular issues that corrected? Side note Iím on 10mg lexapro still but Iíve had A/D withdrawals through all this too. I pray this gets better.

Congratulations on your benzo freedom!  I don't have any knowledge about vestibular disorder's but if you start a new thread on the Post-withdrawal Recovery Support or  General Health & Wellbeing boards you may get some feedback.
