I have gone up to 1.25mg with no relief.

I am talking to my ME consultant on Wednesday and I hope he can recommend a different med to get rid of this but I think heíll say he doesnít know or put it down to anxiety. Itís not anxiety though.

I donít want to increase clonazepam any further but if I cannot find any other relief I may have to try it.

How long ago did you updose, it can take awhile for your body to fully realize the increase.

That should be long enough, still no relief?

I feel slightly better today and yesterday but it could be because I started using an acupressure mat! Random I know but my mum had one and I randomly found it reduced this akathesia type sensation. Doesnít get rid of it, just reduces it if I keep using it a few times a day.

Will have to see if I continue to feel a bit better or not!

I also have a video consultation with my consultant tomorrow. Iím hoping he comes up with something and isnít dismissive.

Thanks for all your replies by the way. Appreciate it.

I hope you can have a productive discussion with your consultant tomorrow and thanks for the info about the acupressure mat, I'll pass it along as a possible relief for akathisia, I'm assuming that's what it helped with or was it your anxiety?

I'm happy to talk to you, I wish I could be more helpful.
