I note overall that even though your DBP is a bit elevated at times, your SBP and pulses look pretty good.
(1) Certainly muscle aches can be a part of the withdrawal, but it could be unrelated. It might just have been a muscle spasm, but if you get it again I'd probably call your doctor to make sure it is not something else. When I hear about left arm pain, having been a former ER doc, I think about the worst case scenarios. VERY unlikely to be the case for you, but I prefer conservative and safe to nonchalant and not well.
(2) Yes, although the DBP is up at times. This corresponds to elevated anxiety and/or withdrawal symptoms, although it can be elevated depending upon if you were active the few minutes before the BP reading. BP normally varies a whole lot, even within the minute. Perhaps one way to not have the BP readings torment you is to not take it as much. :)
(3) Yes, your body's adjustments will lag from the dose adjustments, so it probably is your body just getting used to the new doses.
(4) You are quite correct, this is a normal part of the process. Getting off these kinds of medicines is a nightmare
, which is why we try to limit the amount and duration a person is on them. You are not alone, and your case is not strange. Rather, it is sadly common for people to feel this badly. That is the BAD news. The GOOD news is they DO feel better, once they get through this.
My pleasure to serve! Please let me know if I may be of further service.
