will this ever end?
I weaned off of trileptal (1800mg) and 375mg lithium the week before Thanksgiving.  It took about a week and a half to get to zero mg.  I did it under dr's orders to prepare for ECT.

I experienced some insomnia and other withdrawal effects while I was tapering them.  Now, I am having really strange sensations - actually numbness all over my body.  I feel like I am running a fever, but when I take my temp there is no fever there.  It feels like my brain has hardened.  This has been going on for four days now.  It won't go away.  I am very scared of this staying forever.   I can't focus on anything and just sit and stare at the tv for hours at a time.

Apparently this is not a side effect of ECT.

Is this ever going to go away?  HELP!
