I had been withdrawing for more than a year
on K. I had panic, diarrhea every day, myoclonic
seizures (this was dx 'd by a doctor), polyurea,
insomnia, heat fluctuations, etc. etc.

But when I approached 0.125 switching to a lower
level, I had something else. I was sitting at the
keyboard and the back of the head went electric
(feel ings of cables travelling around the head -
i had that before - we call them "eels" - but this
time they did not stop at just bobbing the head
(as when an emergency doctor dx'd them as myoclonic
jerks) --- This time, they travelled around the
head from the bottom to all over and they felt
like they burst into a fire, culminating in an
axe like hit in the back of the head.

After that, I lost memory, for about 20 minutes,
then I had trouble walking for about two weeks,
stumbling, the head was in excruciating pain, and
when my mother called my doc, she reported that I
was turning red and blue in the face. I also had
extreme sweats, and I could not lay my head on
the pillow because it hurt so much. I had migraines.
I did feel near death.

This lasted a month. The ER doc. did not see me
or give an EEG until 2 months after because I was
too ill in bed to go anywhere.

This was not withdrawal - I had withdrawal for
nearly a year and a half - bad as it was - it was
not so sudden and stroke like.

My husband helped me by getting me to reinstate
the dose forst 0.250 then to 0.50, and my doc. later
to 1.0 - now.

I don't know what it was, but as I said I was
unable to walk straight for a couple of weeks.
