2 Year Update off all psyche drugs!!!

 

been umming and ahing wether or not to write my success story but decided to leave it another few months just to make sure,

 

things are pretty much resolved now, would consider myself healed around 95%, the last few months have been fantastic and sleep has been mostly good, I am back looking good, no longer have black bags under eyes, put back on the lost weight and usually walking around with a smile,

 

night times no longer revolve around withdrawal, i dont have epsom salt baths every night anymore and no longer in bed by 7.30, usually go to bed around 9.30 - 10.30 and then usually asleep within 30 mins, usually then sleep quite solid until around 6 - 7 ish, sometimes wake briefly during night but get back off fast

 

if have a lot of stress then that can have a negative impact on sleep but this is true for regular people also,

 

35 years old tomorrow, remember my last birthday was awful as didnt sleep night before, hopefully not cursed myself writing this update,

 

thanks for reading

 

Brilliant mate ,im happy for you .👍💪.

Happy birthday .

Take care.

Was watching tv last night and there was some info at top left of screen with a timer etc, the numbers and writing was extremely small and I was sat quite far away but could read the writing and numbers very clearly, that would of been impossible to read last year, even writing 5 times that size would of been very blurry and not possible to read last year, was very surprised, hopefully vision will remain good from now on

needing a bit of help if anyone can, withdrawal wise been doing great but keep having problems with my throat which come and go, on Sunday noticed a small round lump top of neck under chin right side, i totally panicked and didnt sleep that night, went emergency doctor Monday morning and they said they think its a swollen lymph node (dont like the word think), told them my daughters had a cold and sore throat and they think i must of caught it, although ive not had a cold but had a uncomfortable throat for a couple weeks (wouldn't ay sore though)

 

throat felt mostly fine until yesterday dinner time when i had a spoon full of manuka honey and a big bowl of cream of chicken soap then a couple of hours later my throat started feeling all swollen and struggling to swallow, i bought some ant-histamines and ibropofen which took and couple hours later throat felt quite bit better, this morning throat feels a bit swollen again, just took another antihistamine,

 

does this sound like a food alergy? im totally panicking and not handling this well at all as the lump still there

ok so throat problems over the last 3 - 4 weeks have been from silent acid reflux, my throat is still really inflamed, it died down a bit but has flared back up, been doctors today and they have given me a short course of prevacid, said to take them so my throat can heal and the inflammation go down

 

thought back and this acid reflux attack started after took diazpem which only usually take once every few months, read that diazpem can relax the oesophageal sphictnter and cause mass reflux, my throat was similar when took diazepem 4 months ago also but was ok after a week

 

what is anyones thoughts of taking a 1 - 2 week course of prevacid?

been on nexium ppi 20mg now for 2 weeks and its not helping my sore throat, do I need to taper off them if only been on for 2 weeks???

 

100% my sore throat is being caused by Laryngopharyngeal reflux (lpr,) its not the acid causing it but been reading that pepsins (stomach enzymes) can get stuck in mucus membranes and every time eat something acidic it can trigger them and they start digesting your throat causing inflammation, im starting a alkaline diet today, read it can take many many months for pepsins to clear from the throat

 

any advice about if need taper nexium appreciated
