Anyone lived face nerve restlessness

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody, as you see i have been holding for a long time to stabilize my only sx anx. For the reason that it hasnt soothed, i started to make some trials and have decided to push it tiny amounts as you see. When i was pushing it in the start of February, anxiety has turned to an awful shape that i can describe it i can feel my face nerves clearly. This is not completely anx. or nerve pain. Is there anyone who lived this face nerves discomfort in the past? They are so dynamic.

 

I know my brain is still working to reach homeostasis, but this disturbance is so hard. However i want to push my taper until this feeling pass. My only big prob. is this weird face nerve disturbance. I left the palps, i left the head pressure, so i should left this too.

 

What can you say about that my friends?

Hi Juneight, I have lots of facial pain. Lots of throbbing in front of my ears and above my cheekbones. I have odd tingling and pain in my facial nerves it seems. It's really awful but it has gotten less severe. Now it's more constant which is very draining. I have to tell myself that I'm getting better because the constant pain is very draining. I don't have such severe pain anymore. It should be like anything else in WD - give it time. I am 13 months out from a quick taper from paxil from 10 mg to 5. Still taking 5 cause I can't handle another drop. Seems like stress makes it worse or not enough sleep. Also having pressure in my ears.

You are saying that you had times you felt your face nerves clearly. It is not like pain, it is not like tingling, but it is terrible. Like feeling the stomach when you had a pain there, like feeling the ear when you had a problem there, "feeling the nerve and feeling nervous.lol" It has been 1.5 months and i know my brain is making arrangements. I think it gives me high anxiety.

Now, i am allowed to work one day in a week due to corona and it should complete its' course in this process. How long did you suffer it immensely?

Thank you for your interest...

Mine started out with pain. Now it is not exactly what you're describing but it also feels overwhelming almost like it's emotional in nature but not quite anxiety. I also get throbbing. So I'm not sure how long it has been like this because I've had windows and waves but on and off about 3-4 months. Everyone is different. I find that since I did a quick taper from 10 mg to 5 of paxil 13 months ago that I need to hold where I am. They say symptoms should get better or go away if you hold.
