Body is confused: Weaning off clonazepam can definitely cause neurological symptoms and 6 days might have been too fast of a wean.

I woke up this morning with pins and needles on the left side of my head/scalp like the feeling when your foot is sleeping and you can't feel it. What can it be? The feeling came back slowly when I moved my neck.

If it doesn't come back, don't worry about it. If it persists, do some gentle neck rang of motion exercises if you know how, or get a PT referral. ...Read more
