HPPD?! Scared! Would love to hear your opinion!




Hi, hope you guys are doing well. I'm starting my blog as many others do .. I took LSD 8 weeks ago and have a couple of concerning symptoms I would like to share with you. The 2 - 3 weeks after I took acid I was very dizzy / had vertigo (when I walked around it felt like being on a boat). I went to a doctor and an ENT-specialist, but they didn't find anything. The dizzyness now almost disappeard, but I still have a blurry vision especially when things or me : ) are moving fast. I still have a constant headache, even though it is also already better than at the beginning (I had awful neck pain at the back of my head). I still feel like having a constant hangover though! When I'm outside a lot I can feel that all the impressions are a lot to process for my head. E.g. the front of my brain is working a lot/is struggling processing all the information. I also feel sick most of the time .. which I think is due to my blurry/dizzy vision!

I don't have a lot of symptoms described in the blogs/forum though (e.g. trails, frames, etc.) This is why I'm questioning that I have HPPD. Did someone have a similar experience? Does this end anyday soon? The last couple of weeks I didn't notice that it's getting better. I'm therefore afraid that it isn't going away. I started to freak out a little bit last weekend as it seemed to get worse again.

Would love to hear your opinions? I planned to go to the Neurologist in a few days .. I don't think though this will be very helpful.

Many thanks in advance.

HPPD is different for everyone on some levels.  In my opinion, you don't need to meet most of the requisites for HPPD, to have it.  I Had odd fucked up symptoms that were not on the basic HPPD checklist and although i never sought any professional diagnosis, am convinced I had HPPD.  Mine did go away, well, 95% at any rate with no medication of any sort.  It is impossible to set a time frame on this, it will differ from individual to individual.  Seing as HPPD is a perceptive/cognitive disorder, i don't see why one persons HPPD couldn't end up being based mostly on their motor skills, IE, being dizzy and feeling unbalanced.  It's very possible you developed HPPD.  


I may not be the most well versed person in the field of brain mechanics or anything of the sort, i'm just a commoner soldier.  I never spent my time engorging myself on self help pages and reading every damn wiki article on HPPD and cognitive disorders i could find.  I just tried my hardest to live life forgetting about what was going on in my head.  It helped, immensely.  If you ever want to talk, I'm here.  Might not be able to give lots of technical info, but I can help to inspire hope, hopefully ;)

ive had a catalogue of symptoms ive had all the basic ones and some stranger ones, ull also be glad to know i had the vertigo symptom you are talking about also and the information rush from being outside. IT DOES GET BETTER. you may have the occasional relapse like a flashback. as soon as you learn to not worry about it, the sooner you learn to live with it and the quicker it goes away without you even realising. Just stay sober, not saying you cant have the odd glass or a small amount of hash, but as long as you dont go overboard you should be able to have that kind of fun and not have a too negative reaction. Best of luck and just try shift your attention to something else trust me, being on here freaking urself out wont help
