Is it possible to have very uncomfortable withdrawals after only 5 weeks on about 0.5 of Ativan per day or less? I started going off it earlier and would notice muscle weakness and joint and muscle pain, increased anxiety, shakiness, some insomnia. I had no idea it was the inter-dose withdrawals of Ativan and thought I had MS or Fibromyalgia or who know what! I was so happy to figure out that it could be the Benzos but I have been off them for 2 weeks now and the symptoms are not much better. Less dizziness and nausea but I still have bad days of all-over aches and pains and weakness and extreme fatigue and exhaustion. Also my hands feel shaky and less dexterous and stiff and a bit numb at times. I am somewhat functional, able to work part-time most days with NSAIDS. I also just feel so scared. I had such a healthy, happy life before this and have a beautiful 3-year old son and just want my life back. Is it possible to experience this after such low-dosage, short-term use?
