I still have the electric, zaps, tingling sensation too but its only been a few days off. I am getting all the symptoms of anxiety disorder, but had it before.. the sense of things being surreal, feeling like I'm gonna hyperventilate, tough being is social situations.. it was hard just going to the laundry mat yesterday.

I read somewhere on the net.. maybe here, that someone's doc said we get those zap feelings because the brain is searching for.. and trying to produce seretonin. Makes sense I suppose..

I'd take that over what I'm feeling now.. the anxiety is constant: back hurts, cramps, headaches, tension around the neck and throat, clenched teeth, dry mouth, racing heart, burning sensation in my arms, tight chest.. it all is overwhelming and makes the mind spin out of control into a surreal sense of existance.. uneasy one at that.

Anyone else experience this, or are bipolar and living life after effexor.. your shared thoughts and experiences would be appreciated

> Over 2 months ? off effexor and the electric shock tingling is driving me sensations in my head or eyes though...just my left side of body.
> My leg muscle twitches constantly..
> The sensation can only be described as when you knock the elbow very hard.
> The good side is I'm sleeping deeper so I have more energy...but I'm more agitated and irritable but not so suicidal now and grim.
> There's no point in telling my doc about the weird sensations...thinking of seeing an osteopath.
