Brain Shocks and Sensations

These are descriptions of how individuals experienced various symptoms during withdrawal. While everyone's withdrawal is unique and symptoms will be different for everyone, it may be useful to know what others went through.

All withdrawal symptoms can be caused by things in addition to withdrawal. If a symptom is persistent or you are worried by it, it is always a good idea to get it checked out by your doctor to ensure nothing else is going on.


Definition:  A perception of sensation associated with the part of the central nervous system enclosed in the cranium.


What I've Felt:

“The worse symptom of all for me has been the sensation of an Electric Current passing through my brain. It feels like someone applied an electrical terminal to each side of my head and then turned the electricity on. Sometimes the sensation is weak and very momentary, those are easier to ignore and cope with. Sometimes the feeling is strong, longer and makes me feel like I can’t move for a second or so – they are more scary.” - Anthea
