Well done for getting all that done today - that is a huge achievement. Try your best to hold on to that during your breathing so you know that you can ride the storm. And never worry about asking more questions!! It keeps me occupied
Yes, ashwagandha's best form is KSM-66. Although most is standardised (each part has the same potency), KSM-66 uses the best part of the root which is the strongest and around 3-4 times the strength of standardised ash. So definately go with the KSM-66.
It did indeed help me, but I got a tolerance to it quite quickly which was upsetting. I was having 3 x 500mg a day, but then this quickly became 3 x 1000mg a day. It lasted for around a month before it pooped out at that dose, but then again, a break of a few days is recommended when taking it, and most people do not tolerate that quickly to it, so it is for sure worth a try. You can go safely upto around 2000mg at a time, but that is quite a high dose and from there on it just gets expensive. This is when I switched to Kratom as I really don't like taking valium.

Feeling even worse today and I have stayed with 29 beads for nearly a week now. My arms and hands really ache, I feel like I have something stuck behind my breastbone and feel agitated and shaky. Still have shortness of breath too😢.
What is going on? Should I drop again? I don't really want to go up.
Thanks so much.

Stay where you are. This happens from time to time with people suffering withdrawal. They hit this "wall" and have to stay put for a while until their system balances out. For the bead count, this is about right as you are down to the last few milligrams which is when it all kicks in.
It is a question of time and patience... as hard as it is to hear!

I'm sorry to keep posting but I'm getting really worried that this is never going to end! Thanks.

Is this likely to last all the way through weaning off or does it come in waves? Thanks very much.

A decreased tolerance for stress is one of the things mentioned when coming off Cymbalta, which is why we always state to make sure you do all you can to steer yourself free of anything that has the potential to give you stress. If you are still working, then again, you are doing better than most!
Symptoms will come and go as they brain sees fit. It all depends on how it is rearranging itself and no-one can tell us that. Your symptoms are likely to move on from their present state the less attention you give it - so much easier said than done I know, but you are in a place where you need to understand this,,,

You got it... a piece of string it is.
Let us know how you get on with the CBD and KSM. I have just ordered some organic valerian powder to make into capsules. I want to see if I can replicate a anti-anxiety med with it. Much cheaper and better for you than a benzo. I have my Kratom, but I don't take it during the day, so if I have an issue, I reach for a Valium and I want an alternative.

Will let you know how it goes with the CBD and KSM

I have Kratom in juice - it is much more pleasant. It works very well as an alternative to valium and is so much safer. Nothing of a withdrawal and not as addictive.
My valerian should be here on Saturday so will see how that goes and also report back...

Poor Polly.... I remember these days well. Our systems are surprisingly resilient you know. I still have no idea how I went through mine. The forum was a Godsend at the time. But then you see some members like LDN who had his withdrawal along with Lymes disease and ME. I can't even begin to imagine. Either way, this by no means undermines what you are going through. Things do get better and make us stronger.
For example, I just wanted to stick two fingers up to whatever my head was doing today, so after my first client, I went and did a brake overhaul on my Audi!! Something that I had been waiting weeks to do. Turned out fine. I was just sick of being a slave to my physical condition. If it starts all over again tomorrow, I will just need to find the wear with all to do it again. It is never easy, but if we keep on, the impact it has on us starts to diminish and you WILL get better. Focus on that rather than there being a few more days of it. That;s the party line... not how long, but that you WILL get better.
Hang in there sunflower...
