  1. No it's my bad, I say "HPPD" but I don't have strong visuals or anxiety, I share a lot of symptoms but the main ones are visual snow, dry eyes, cognitive and memory impairment and chronic pain... All brought by nutmeg. But MDMA is what gave me after images and visual snow in the first place. So I think our situations are kind of reversed, and the visual snow you got from DXM may be a milder expression of the syndrome I experience from nutmeg, both being anticholinergic.
  2. Yeah dude I got HPPD pretty hard from nutmeg which is similar in action in the brain to DXM and cold sneezing pills
  3. Hey guys, I've been on Keppra for a little more than 3 months now, 1250mg a day at the moment with a 1500mg goal but I started to notice that my hair are falling out when I pass my hand through or when I take a shower... I feel like the Keppra is slowly improving my symptoms however, especially brain fog. I'm 23 so it may seem superficial but I'm a bit alarmed by this lol Apparently zinc supplementation can help with the hair loss induced by Keppra and I'm lucky enough to have some on hand so I'll see if it has a positive effect or not. I will update this post in case
  4. Hey, I too can fall asleep despite symptoms and wake up feeling like I didn't slept, what I often tell my friends is my body feels like I've been in a fight last night. Benzos seems to work for me and CBD too. Did you notice that being very sleep deprived actually make your symptoms better ?
  5. All I can say is that I indeed got HPPD from a non-classical serotoninergic hallucinogen, so there's that. But Reddit is reddit, you can almost always find every answer possible ton any question and with HPPD being so diverse I'm not sure this sub can help out more than just confort yourself knowing you're not alone... Just my 2 cents
  6. Yeah I almost have to force myself not to do it
  7. By far my most debilitating symptoms. 24/24 7/7 Ruining my life. For those of you (I'm so sorry for you guys) that suffer from these too, how do you cope? Only Klonopin (Clonazepam) and oddly enough sometimes coffee helped me so far. Any thoughts?
  8. Hey, I got my HPPD 3 years ago from abusing nutmeg which is an anticholinergic (ie : like Datura, Benadryl etc...) My main symptoms are fatigue, visual snow, chronic pain, photophobia, memory and cognitive impairment. Did you get your HPPD from an anticholinergic too ? and if so, what are your symptoms what helped ? I searched a LOT in those 3 years so maybe we could help each other Good evening, Lucas
  9. Hey, I don't know how to help you but please do reach out to a doctor or addiction specialist, you're treading in dark waters
  10. Haha it's funny because the last sentence of your post implies that you can indeed change your brain chemistry and/or structure by watching a screen The brain is continously adaptating and is doing so by creating and destructing connections between neurons, this is what is called plasticity. What you call a psychological change is ultimately a physical change. Then again I will make a post explaining my reasoning. In regards to your theory with anxiety, I'm an example of someone with HPPD and no anxiety, but I got it from an anticholinergic so that may explain why. I appreciate
  11. @olivier24445 I'm talking about plastic changes in the brain, please do read the article I linked. I need to make a full post where I explain things clearly but my mind is foggy tonight, I will tag you if you want, please keep an open mind. Plus I would day try the video it will at least prove to you that your brain is indeed constantly trying to maintain homeostasis, my theory being that our brains consider "the HPPD state" the normal state and do what it can to maintain it. I read an essay about chronic pain that explain this concep pretty well, then again I need to make
  12. Let me explain then, as the brain is trying to filter out the visual noise of the video it compensate and then the snow disappear for a few seconds/minutes depending on how long you have been watching. (Did you try btw ?). The idea would be that by forcing the brain to compensate for the stimuli of the video often enough for long enough plastic changes would happen and the compensation made would be in part permanent.
  13. This is a copy-paste from an answer I gave an another post earlier : About "detraining" the brain to notice visual snow, here's a report from a guy who claimed he cured his disturbances by watching anti visual snow video for hours on end. (the video does kind of "freeze" visual snow for a few seconds if you watch it for some minutes, you can try it it's fun). (PIN THIS POST) How I CURED my Palinopsia & Visual Snow - Original Visual-Snow or Static forum I believe this guy because it is consistent with this article Cortical stimulation for treatment of neurologica

  15. I'm basically symptom-free for the day after a hit of changa, it's kind of crazy really.
