Hi ive been dealing with hppd for more than half a year now. My drug history includes dxm heavy for abouta month until i had a bad overdose. Then i used spice for about a month a few months later. At one point i accidently overdosed and dealt with intense pressure and many disturbing feelings that i have been trying to recover from. fastforward half a year later and im still dealing with mostly the same problems. Head fog, pressure, visuals (that i dont even care about, i can live with these) and what most disturbs me now is the neuropathy/numbing. Ive tried supplements but all (even a b vitamin in high dose ) make my symptoms worse. im afraid of the prospects for the future as this only seems to worsen and i have no faith in modern medicine helping me. So what am I to do? Live with it and try not to somehow make it worse is the only answer i can find.

supplements i have tried that only worsen symptoms:

St. johns wart

ginko bilboa

Vitamin b6

Valerian root

Biotin

i also take fish oil which is the one thing that does no harm

thanks any insight or just supports is greatfully accepted and needed

Well i didnt used to have it but a few instances with alcohol and one night where i had a couple energy drinks to cram out a paper and now im worse than ever. whenever i lay down especially my skin just feels hot and itchy with needles pricking me. looked it up and its called neuropahy. The pressure is something that used to be my worst symptom but is now something i have faith will disappear with time. (better every day). Its the pressure in forehead ive heard described as head fog i believe and pressure in the temples. The neuropathy is whats grtting me down because i kniw the nervous system may not heal and any supplement i take seems to aggrevate it not help it and looking to the future i only see myself making it worse by accident or if i ever needed medication for something it could destroy me. This terrifies me to think of as this numbish feeling is terrible

And ya the dxm is what did it and the spice is what blew it over the edge i know for sure. doesnt seem to be the typical hppd story but just about every visual and ohysical symptom ive read describes me perfectly just not as bad psychadelically as some

Well, if you gotta neuropathy, you gotta go to a neurologist or a neuropsychiatrist. If it's just HPPD, dissociation or anxiety, try a lot of sleep and very small amount of benzo. When i was real bad w/ HPPD, i got this pseudo-RLS thing going on. Also I was getting these pseudo-migraine headaches too. Maybe you can relate to those 2 feelings, and perhaps this has brought out some sort of ADD thing. Tell me if this rings true any.

What can a neurologist do? As i said i have no faith in doctors at this point docs really screwed my bro with lyme disease refusing to test for it. The rls doesnt seem to ring true for me even though i used to have it as a kid. its just neuropathy from what ive read. the mograines i have definetely felt along with every other sort of physical head symptom (usuaply like my brain wants to fucking explode) but those have improved and greatly deminished. Im scared of supplements now adays as i said earlier benign drugs like valerian root noticeably make things worse now. might also be wortg mentioning i feel i have no motivation to do anything. i think of things i want to do but cant find any motive to do anything but go through the motions of school eat sleep and work. is this dp or just depression?

Well of course it's a neuropathy or a sense that it's neuropathy .......HPPD has aspects similar to brain damage. What are your options? Go to doctor, Treat yourself, pray. You should try to have some practical plans to help yourself. Not all doctors are bad. RLS as a kid seems rare. How about asprin/ ibprofen ?? Well most western doctors wouldn't prescribe you supplements generally, unless you had a vitamin deficiency. Listen I'm gonna tell you what i think Wellbutrin XL, little bit of asprin, a little bit of ibprofen, and tiny amount of benzos and lots of water and sleep and time.

Tried wellbuttrin few months ago and it did wonders for my depression. i jad the motovation to do what i wanted to do again but it quickly brought back symptoms and intense constant head pressure sp i stopped using it. its always been my hope to get back on it but i just dont think i can right now (maybe in a few months). as for bemzos what can they do for me?( just curious) The head pressure is not a big issue i can see it resolving within a few months its just thr nervous system thats the real issue. Is a doc the only answer i really want to keep this out of my family if i can since they have enough to deal with my bro.

Btw thanks for all the advice :)

Well i tried celexa actually or was it cialis. well it was an ssri and immediately stopped when it was worse than wellbutrin. I just cant imagine that another mind atlering drug would be good for me if i cant even take supplements right now :/ i guess i just have to tough it out if im gonna ever heal. or go to the doc
