Brain damage or dystonia

Kelly9610 profile image

Hello, I have cervical dystonia which is a muscle movement disorder in the neck. I got off klonopin after 13 years. I weened of as I should but went through really bad scary withdrawal anyway. It felt like my brain was being shocked for 3 days strait with no sleep for those 3 days. Some feelings did not go away and I was still bugging . then a severe anxiety depression hit me. Major depressive disorder. During the depression I developed a speach problem. My lungs are fine but I don't have enough lung capacity to talk. And I sound like I'm talking through my nose. I can't talk unless I'm talking to the top of my voice. When I get into an intense convo its like my brain shuts down and I can't talk anymore. Like oxygen is being cut off some how. I will be seeing my neuro but every doc likes to defend klonopin . any thoughts would help. Also I'm still going through depression but not as bad. Its lingering and I still don't feel like myself. Thank you
