My name is Chris and I believe that I've had HPPD for a couple of years but it just started getting worse recently. I posted a couple months back saying how I didn't have some symptoms that have just occurred. I know have visual snow, halos around lights and palinopsia (after images and tracers) that are getting worse every couple of days. It is really stressful but I am changing my life around by not drinking anymore and starting to work out and eat healthier. I got desperate and started looking online for help and came across a page called the Visual Snow Initiative. They are a group of people studying and looking for a cure for visual snow. I emailed them to see if HPPD is related and I got this response.
"Hi Chris, HPPD can cause Visual Snow and related symptoms. It is difficult to say if the same neurons/synopsis’ are affected. It is too early in research to say, however, we do think that a cure for VS regardless of the origin can be a cure for HPPD. Hope this helps."
This is exciting because I believe that it is the closest this has all came to finding a cure for HPPD. We all just have to hang in there and be positive. I hope this can bring hope to you all!! 🙂
The Visual Snow Initiative has many informational videos if you guys are curious, here is the link to their website and youtube:
