_david_R Posted May 8, 2013 Report Share Posted May 8, 2013 Hi all Basically i have had what i consider mild hppd for a couple of years. My only real symptoms are pretty severe negative afterimages and visual snow. Anything i look at, as soon as i have seen it, instantly gives me a vibrant negative afterimage. Varies alot with lighting, constrast etc as you may expect. Anyway, i continue to do drugs, taking mdma once every couple of months with no noticeable long term effects, and smoking a shit load of weed. Recently ive decided i need to take a long break from smoking so much dope, since it has been getting to me alot, making me lazy as fuck and interefereing with my studies, giving me anxiety etc etc So i have quit. The bizarre thing is, after 2 weeks of complete sobriety my afterimages are more noticeable than ever. They seem to be getting worse, after being stable for basically a year. I remember the last time i took a 6 week break from all drugs i noticed this effect too. Usually when im smoking weed my static/VS gets alot more noticeable and forms into patterns, but my afterimages are usually baseline wether im stoned or not. Now for the second time, my vs seems baseline but my afterimages are steadily getting more noticeable even though im not even taking anything! My afterimages are now well past the point where i can ignore them. It doesnt give me much anxiety really, but is getting really annoying and i am concerned that they are going to get to the point where i do start to find it debilitating. Wtf is going on?? Maybe i dont even have HPPD, but i just have palinopsia for some unrelated reason, and it is worsening by coincidence?? I guess i should get myself to a doctor, bu i just thought i would see if anyone has had similar experience? 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
