7238561: Gallbladder attack or just benzo withdrawal


7238561

Recommended Posts

Help, 

I do not know if I have gallbladder attack or just benzo withdrawal.  I have grating feeling on my gallbladder when I feel hungry.  I get better after I eat something.  I had blood works and showed nothing. I had ultrasound and report said:

Findings:
A small amount of sludge is in the gallbladder, but no shadowing stones are
seen.
The CBD measures 3 mm.
A few small simple cysts are seen in the left lobe the liver measuring 10 mm
and 9 mm in size.
The flow in the main portal vein appears normal. No free fluid is seen.
The visualized pancreas appears normal.
Impression:
1. A small amount of sludge seen in the gallbladder but the gallbladder
appears
otherwise normal.
2. A few tiny incidental simple cysts in the left lobe the liver.


Do you think that it is gallblader attack?  Or just benzo?  I am now suffering grating pain on my gallbladder area.  Thank you.

7 years 5 months ago, I took lorazepam  0.5 mg per day for 40 days for sleeping.  After starting taking that medicine, I had negative thoughts and I just dumped the pills.  

 

I had cold turkey that night and then lived in hell 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for 2 years.  I thought I would died.

 

After two years, I had very bad symptoms often coming up to hit me.  You name it and I have it.

 

After 5 years, I felt better.  But, I could be sick for 2 months if symptoms kicked me badly.  I felt my body improved when a window opens. 

 

After 6 years, I felt normal most of days but sometimes stress and anxiety hit me.   But, I still had bad bad bad condition for two months in a year and then I got better.

 

This is my 7 years 7 months off lorazepam.  Most of time I am doing not bad but lately I found that I have pain on liver, gallbladder, stomach, everywhere around my belly.  Hopefully, this is just benzo thing and I can feel better after 2 months.

Hello 7. Welcome to SA. I'm so sorry you are having pain however it's really not possible for us to establish exactly what the cause is. Are you working in conjunction with your doctor on this matter? What is his advice at this point?

 

It's always wise to have the medical tests done and I'm glad you did that, although we are not doctors so it's difficult to establish whether this is normal or not. However, we can help you with the Benzo withdrawal. Are you tapering and if so, what drugs and for how long have you been on them ?

 

Firstly, we really need more information : can I ask that you fill out your signature with your drug and tapering history. Please follow the directions at the link below: 

Please put your withdrawal history in your signature

 

When we have this information , we can advise you further.

Many SSRI's and SSNRI's over 20 years. Zoloft for 7 years followed by Effexor, Lexapro, Prozac, Cymbalta, Celexa, Pristiq, Valdoxan, Mianserin and more - on and off. No tapering. Cold turkey off Valdoxan - end of May 2014

None of the published articles shed light on what ssri's ... actually do or what their hazards might be. Healy 2013. 

This is so true, with anything you get on these drugs, dependance, tapering, withdrawal symptoms, side effects, just silent. And if there is something mentioned then their is a serious disconnect between what is said and reality! 

  "Every time I read of a multi-person shooting, I always presume that person had just started a SSRI or had just stopped."  Dr Mosher. Me too! 

Over two decades later, the number of antidepressant prescriptions a year is slightly more than the number of people in the Western world. Most (nine out of 10) prescriptions are for patients who faced difficulties on stopping, equating to about a tenth of the population. These patients are often advised to continue treatment because their difficulties indicate they need ongoing treatment, just as a person with diabetes needs insulin. Healy 2015

I believe the ssri era will soon stand as one of the most shameful in the history of medicine. Healy 2015

Sorry, I almost forgot this post because I am getting much better.  I think that it was all because of benzo.   

7 years 5 months ago, I took lorazepam  0.5 mg per day for 40 days for sleeping.  After starting taking that medicine, I had negative thoughts and I just dumped the pills.
