Your systolic blood pressure of 183 is significantly high and need to be addressed. With intermittent sharp pains, you need to go to emergency room or urgent care for evaluation and an EKG.

Overall all of your symptoms; with no sleep, anxiety; may be related to benzo withdrawal.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
