    • So it's been 3 weeks since i got hppd from 25 ug and a couple dab pen hits was not a good idea i had a panic attack and kinda just blacked out. so that's how i got it most of my symptoms are gone including my DP/DR Head pressure,  anxiety, to strong cev's  i do still see after images and a little bit of color changes in my vision but that doe's not bother me i'm only 14 so i was scary at first but i just want to say thank you for your help.
    • Hey, I have those skins problems, seborrheic dermatitis which I think are auto-immune. My HPPD worsened a LOT when I took nutmeg whic is an anticholinergic and I too now have pain in my face 24/7 which seems to be link to contraction of whatever is in there. I just found this forum and I hope we can together find how we can get our lives back.
    • Hey all, my name is Lucas and I'm french, I'm 22 years old. I started doing psychedelics 4 years ago, but if I remember correctly it's an heavy period of MDMA/Ectsasy use that earned me HPPD. It was nothing too spectacular, visual snow + halos around lights, I thought nothing about it. It worsened when I took drugs and got better when I didn't for a while. Really not that much of a problem. But 2 years ago I did nutmeg just to see what was the effect of it, i took a fair amount (about 2 little bottle of grounded numteg). Since this day nothing has ever been like before. My HPPD worsened a lot, I know have strong afterimages, strong visual snow, blurry vision, eyes and mouth dryness, memory issues, reading is more difficult and also I have a lingering pain in, between, and around the eyes. It's debilitating.It ruins my life. I can do with all this shit but the pain is too much, it's 24/7 since 2 years.  Of course like many I think, I did all the exams in the world, which you guessed it all came back fine. It's only since recently that I started to make the connection between HPPD and my symptoms, I know usually people don't feel physical pain due to it but it seems in my case to be linked with the other symptoms. Numteg is an anticholinergic delirant. After hours and hours and hours of researching the internet I found on this forum that many people were discussing the link between acetylcholine and HPPD.  Anticholinergic toxicity is always acute, but there are many similiaities between it and HPPD : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anticholinergic I think maybe a high dose of anticholinergic drug on people who already have a mild case of HPPD can worsen it dramatically. I will delve on this forum more to gather information and talk about all that to my neurologist, I hope she ever heard of HPPD before or it will be fastidious lol   Good luck to you all :)

      Hey all!
      It's been nearly a year since I got hppd, and man was this year hard. Constantly feeling this sense of not knowing who I am and what's gonna happen. Honestly, i'm not vary happy considering the fact i kinda retracted my social presence in my life. Because of this i'm constantly ridiculed by my family for being weird. "Why don't you ever leave the house? Are you depressed?" Idk how to feel towards the people who are supposed to be there for me, especially my mom. I opened up to her about how i was feeling, and she completely disregarded what i said, saying I have no reason to be sad. Which really pissed me off because i can't tell her, "hey i did a fuck ton of drugs last year and now i feel constantly disassociated and i can't open my eyes without seeing the most fucked shit." So that's how i'm doing, in spite of her doings, i've picked up making music. If you're interested in listen, i'll leave a link in my profile. 
      Much love guys,
      Andrew G
