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.

I'm not withdrawing from any medication, but I experience what sounds like the description of brain zaps. I did wonder what was causing this, but decided it was best not to try to analyze it, and put it down to a wide range of reasons instead, such as lack of food, fluids, etc..

However, I feel these intense, 1-2 second dizzy spells when I'm standing up AND sitting down. It only happens when I'm sat looking at my PC monitor.
