Weaned off of clonazepam 10 years ago. Body went into severe withdrawal: Hair loss/ thinning, swelling through T-zone portion of my face, excessively oily face and hair, stiff painful joints. Hair and face have never completely recovered although have days/weeks symptoms are milder, buy only worsening again.

Have been taking Benedryl almost daily for the last year.

- Pantoprazole dry eyes
started at 5 days after starting the treatment. no other medications or suplements taken. tear drops do not help. putting a tiny amount of stJohn's worth oil at the bottom of the eyes provokes tears and gives a better result. will consider changing the medication for my acid reflux condition.

From this study (2 weeks ago):
I have been encountering these symptoms for almost two years. I have had blood tests more than 5 times. It all shows in WBC, fluctuate between 2700-3500 with marginal low platelets and the hematologist see it as borderline. Two ultrasound is done for my abdomen; prostate, bladder, kidneys, spline, liver and all showed normal.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
Though I've always been prone to dry eyes and migraines (not an more issue than in past) since starting my new job I have my dust allergies and fluorescent lighting to contend with - postal outlet. Where I used to be able to work on computer for a few hours before my eyes went "crazy" it's only about 15 minutes now. I depend on being able to work on my computer as a photographer and writer. Not to mention communication via FB and emails. It also has stopped me from doing some online things that are work-related. I can't even watch a movie on the computer for long before my eyes are affected. I've always had a "constant headache" when I am asked to focus on it. I wouldn't call it a headache but a dull pain/pressure in my head. Different from my migraines which are largely hormonal. I've had an ocular migraine which scared the shit out of me, and when I discovered it could be caused from my birth control I stopped that! I haven't had one since.
