Today my lips alternated between numb and tingling. I was in a store looking at melatonin bottles and jumped when a store employee behind me asked if I needed help. I also have heard a high pitched whine all day anytime the background noise was low (work is often quiet as a tomb, so I heard it a lot).

Klonopin withdrawal is like a box of chocolates, you never know what symptom or sensory distortion you'll get next. At this point I just shake my head and laugh at the ridiculous parade of symptoms. At least the sheer variety and randomness of them is somewhat entertaining.

The worst ones I think are the weird panic sensations when I am trying to go to sleep, it feels like I am about to have a seizure. At least I imagine that is what it feels like, since I have never had one to my knowledge. At work I have had severe anxiety, inability to look people in the eye for very long without my neck muscles stiffening and trembling etc. but I tell myself they probably can't tell, and even if they can, who cares. Lots of strange people at work, I'm no weirder than the rest of them.
