Finally took myself off temazepam 15mg (~1 year of 5 nights/week intermittent use). 2 weeks later, my lower back pain is gone (and thankfully, no other benzodiazepine withdrawal symptoms!).

Anyone else have a similar experience of muscle pain dissappearing once they withdrew from benzodiazepines?

I'm thankful to be on Lorazapam. Because sometimes I do have some muscle pain in the morning and the morning dose of Lorazapam helps so I don't have to take a pain killer or muscle relaxant. Lorazapam has been good to me.

Sometimes when a migraine has stretched out for several days, I'll take a benzo. It doesn't relieve the pain, but helps me from getting all anxious about the pain.

I have constant pain in both knees, and benzos have never decreased/increased that pain. The knees are a whole other ball game.
