etardnow Posted July 26, 2013 Report Share Posted July 26, 2013 Just doing some 'research' and for my curiosity. Short answers first and then explanations(if you want) preferred. 1. Prior to hppd, what was your drug experience 2. How long have you had hppd? 3. What triggered the start of your symptoms? 4. List your visual symptoms 5. List your physical and mental symptoms. 6. Have you remained drug free since hppd? Please specify if you still consume alcohol, caffeine, etc. 7. How long did it take for your hppd to reach a baseline? 8. Timeline of your symptoms? 9. Did your symptoms 'naturally' get worse? 10. What external factors made your symptoms permanently worse? 11. What external factors made your symptoms temporarily worse? 12. Any improvements? What factors? Timeline of improvement? Short answers first and then explanations(if you want) preferred. 1. Prior to hppd, what was your drug experience daily pot smoker, 2 mushroom trips, 3 lsd trips, 10 mdma. 2. How long have you had hppd? 2months. 3. What triggered the start of your symptoms? I think pot brownie triggered body symptoms Medication i took for body symptoms triggered visual symptoms. I did not know i had hppd until i got visual symptoms. Though i always had some very mild text movement since my first lsd, i assumed pot kept it alive. 4. List your visual symptoms ghosting, pot vision, blue entoptic(sky sperm), floaters , some sort of tint. (it feels like there is transparent shadow tint but very mild. kind of like a shadow mid air. (maybe its really unnoticable visual snow?), mild tracers, mild afterimage. It seems like im the only one without visual snow. Weird. 5. List your physical and mental symptoms. Random body aches, head pressure, shrinked blood vessels in brain, 140 blood pressure, 100 pulse (anxiety?), tinnitus, feels like body is sleeping and head is awake, body tremors when waking up, blood rush standing up, mild anxiety? pressure behind eye., weakened legs? 6. Have you remained drug free since hppd? Please specify if you still consume alcohol, caffeine, etc. excluding medications, yes. few weeks of no caffeine, 7 weeks of no alcohol, couple weeks of no sweets(juice, junkfood, etc), 10 days into no flour, fried stuff, etc. 7. How long did it take for your hppd to reach a baseline? Im only 1-2 month in so I cant say if i reached baseline yet. 8. Timeline of your symptoms? 1-30 days month body aches, kind of worrying(but not heart racing anxiety) resulting from not knowing why i was sick. 30-50 days ghosting, starbursting, shadow vision, blood rushing, 50-60 days mild anxiety, tinnitus, racing thoughts. 9. Did your symptoms 'naturally' get worse? I think all my worsened symptoms were triggered by medication. 10. What external factors made your symptoms permanently worse? medications mentioned before, and i THINK ciprofloxacin for my prostate infection caused my tinnitus and mild anxiety. (cant say for sure though) 11. What external factors made your symptoms temporarily worse? anxiety perhaps. 12. Any improvements? What factors? Timeline of improvement? After a massagist (not your common one) massaged my head[blood vessels] (he was able to notice my blood vessels had shrinked which was confirmed by hospital but i didnt tell him. Though i did tell him my symptoms of head pressure and not being able to sleep due to my brain remaining conscious) That day he told me i would be able to sleep from now on and my anxiety also was somewhat relieved. I have a pulse checker at home and it did show lowering of resting pulse. I always had mild text dance since first lsd and assumed it was because i smoked pot daily. After pot brownie at the airport (which also marked my sobriety) before a plane ride, I started with some body aches, fatigue, stomach infection. Took some medications(paracetamol, clebopride, clotiazepam) for body aches and such which turned out to be related to cannabinoid system, dopamine antagonist, and gabaa agonist. All which are closely related with hppd but i didnt know i had/prone to hppd at the time. When taking this medication is when i started to notice visual symptoms. Yesterday, I went out with my friends for the first time since my sickness. I have a pretty good 15+ group of friends which i have no hesitation telling them about my hppd. So when i was out i kept on looking at led lights, and such cuz there was so many and they were teasing me like i was a fucking mosquito lol. During the whole night of looking at lights, i guess i sort of accepted it was always going to be there and became content with it. (we'll see) . However im sort of scared that i am not at my baseline yet since many users have reported worsening of symptoms over many months. I really think i would freak the fuck out if i experienced DP/DR and visual snow. I dont know how you guys do it. Lots of respect. Also, having something to do makes me feel better, even if thats spending time at hppdonline. but sometimes even if im watching tv, i can only concentrate on my hppd. i guess thats anxiety?
