Head Zaps / Whoosh

What the goddam are these head zap things about ? I'm at the start/middle/end/start/middle point of Effexor withdrawal, and every time I move my head suddenly or move my eyes around, I get this buzzing sensation in, er, well, kind of 'behind' my eyes and I feel like I'm going to fall over, even when lying down - if that's possible. I'm also getting strange sensations on the soles of my feet...kind of a numb/cold feeling.

I've noticed that quite a lot of people have mentioned these head zaps during withdrawal...does it last ? It not particually disabling, just bloody annoying. I'd be curious to know the biological basis for this so that, of course, I can obsessively worry about it.

Hey Marty,

Its not withdrawal. There is no such thing as withdrawal from psychiatric drugs. All psychiatric drugs are safe and can only make you feel wonderful. My guess is your symptoms are not real and are just in your head. Their caused by your obvious anxiety state that has come back after you stopped taking the drug. If I were you Id would just start taking it again by the handfulls. Im guessing youll feel better in a few days.
