so you thought you had a problem with your liver and gallbladder
Like I said..it only happened once. Before benzos I had a diagnoses of liver disease. To put your mind at ease talk to your dr., like I said..I read about it here as another side effect of withdrawal so..try not to stress.
I did a search for you..thought it might help:

Thanks for the responses. Yes. I can hold out for a bit longer here. It is just very uncomfortable. I haven't had much GI issues in my life. During month 2 of c\t wd I had the clay like stool for a month. It was pretty scary but I read up on it and didn't worry about it and it passed.
This whole thing is different though since I have all my energy to focus on this now and of course my anxiety is getting the best of me.
The internet is really not a good tool for medical issues as far as self diagnose. I have gone from IBS, to Chrons, to kidney stone, to testicular cancer, to food poisoning, to pancrease disease etc etc etc. I need to just stay away from google! Lol.
I know what you mean. without this board I would be at the docs/ed all the time.... so many different, weird sx.
Bliss Johns says that if a sx is troubling you to get it checked out medically but 99% of the time it is wd. Sounds like you checked out Ok; You know by know that if you post your sx here you'll find lots of others with the same sx; so you'll know it is the drug.
You mentioned stress lately, that can cause flare of sx. Maybe there was a food that you ate that triggered.... I can't do dairy or onions yet. They cause intense belly problems including awful cramping pains.
Breathe. Do some gentle yoga. Go for a walk. Watch a funny movie. Distract your self.
I hope this passes for you very soon.
Funny thing is that walking actually doesn't hurt like sitting does. When I walk I feel a pull on the left side and leg and that is all. When I sit..like right now...but lower abdomen hurts like mad. Its got to be a pulled muscle dammit! lol.
Oh, and nobody think I can still have any benzo issues considering its been almost a year. I started to believe that myself. But now I am not so sure.
i will be 11 next week and only what is left is GI . Sensitive food and stress . When moving , no problem , when sit can feel it stomach like you .
Any stress my abdominal get huge , dairy , gluten, vegies , sugar , salt , protein etc make my abdom also swollen and tight and pressured .
Stress i think is worst for post benzo , period .
I bike or speed walk get rid of stress .
I hope this will go away like other w/d .
