  1. Even without the sun, I still wear mine consistently. It helps with artificial lights, etc. Yeah, it's common for symptoms to get much worse at night, and symptoms overall can get worse overtime or better. It really just depends on the person. Personally, after my symptoms got worse over the course of a few months they gradually started to decline when I started wearing sunglasses and eating a keto diet (keto diet is a BIG help for people with HPPD).
  2. Most of your symptoms seem to match up with HPPD, so I'd say you most likely have it. I was experiencing extreme pressure in my eyes (along with my head) which you seem to be dealing with, and had some pretty bad light sensitivity (trailing, halos, double vision etc). A good coping technique for this is to wear some sunglasses (I wear my prescribed ones 24/7 and a big chunk of my pressure/visual-symptoms have been simmered down. Seriously, buy yourself a pair and see if it makes any difference, I know a few others on here have had success with it as well.
  3. Yeah, I had the exact same thing you're currently going through. My body and mind felt like a pair of anchors, or sometimes they felt too light; always shifting between the two and putting me off-balance. Thankfully after abstaining from all drugs and eating healthy (keto diet) that symptom has basically vanished for me. Can't say the same for the rest of my symptoms, but they are slowly getting better as well.
  4. Within a week, no. Personally, it took a few weeks before noticing any improvements (after trying to live healthy, using supplements, etc.) but recovery is different for everyone. If you're noticing improvements so early that's a very good sign.
  5. Trazodone along with other sleep-aid/anti-depressant medication can cause intense/weird dreams... if you're noticing any other negative side effects that are too much for you (visual increase, etc.) then you should probably stop taking it. People on here have said it helped a bit, others say it made everything 2x worse. About your friends, if you don't approve of what they're doing or how they're acting it might be best to cut them off.
  6. At first it can seem really hopeless, but through abstaining drugs/caffeine and eating healthy, trying coping mechanisms, exercising, etc I promise it gets somewhat better over time. Working towards recovery immediately is a huge help, and coming to terms with your symptoms will also help with the anxiety/depression. In just a few months of working towards recovery and living a completely healthy lifestyle, my symptoms have lowered 50% (although HPPD recovery is different for everyone). Just hang in there! A positive mindset can work wonders in your battle against HPPD 🙂

    CBD Oil

    I've been slowly increasing the dosage, and I've made sure to make sure it's a small dosage for now (it helped a lot with the anxiety). However it seems as though my visuals are increasing after using the oil for a couple days though.
  8. So I'm unsure to start taking CBD oil in order to calm some symptoms along with chronic pain, I have the "THC free" oil that claims to have no THC, yet there's still an extremely small dosage of THC within the oil still as most "thc free" cbd oils still have thc in them. Does anyone have experience with CBD oil that contains almost no thc?
  9. Melatonin personally does not effect my symptoms, however some people have said they've experienced worsened symptoms with consistent melatonin use. Although I'm not sure if these claims of worsened symptoms are true, you could always test it out and see how you feel after.
  10. Tinnitus and headaches can also be apart of HPPD (I also get these symptoms). You aren't going crazy, you are just experiencing some of the many side effects that can come with HPPD, most likely.
  11. No it's pretty unlikely you are developing schizophrenia, it's most likely HPPD. I see afterimages and lines all the time, which can be apart of HPPD's visual symptoms; I tend to also experience depersonalization/derealization which could be contributing to the mental confusion you are experiencing. These symptoms can worsen with stress/anxiety (especially DP/DR), and convincing yourself you have something far worse or are going crazy just heightens the problems. If you had schizophrenia, the symptoms would be far more drastic with possible false delusions and hallucinations. Is there anything else you are experiencing?
  12. Planning on bringing it up with my next visit to the doctor, hopefully it's just more symptoms from HPPD.
  13. Sometimes it's a migraine or is close to one, and other times it's just a headache.
  14. Is this a symptom known to happen with HPPD? At random moments, my head feels like it's floating from the rest of my body and my depth perception is way off as things seem closer or further. Shortly before this happens I also experience numbness/tingling throughout my limbs and a headache, along with my vision worsening and an increase in head pressure. My balance is also off the charts... Is this HPPD or is more likely a different medical issue?
