Was on SSRIs 18 yrs. Weaned off over past 2 mos. Now, severe abdominal/flank/lower back pain left side. Clean abdo CT. Related to withdrawal maybe?

Full exam info. I doubt the source is w/drwl but the extreme experience might be related. W/o knowing much more about you, it's hard to know the source. Clean abdo CT is good! Muscles, joints, etc also need exam. Yoga, massage, PT may help. Diet too, if BMI is high. Ask advice from Doc who weaned you (good!). Best!
