I got migraines every day that It got in the way of doing what needs to be done. I began taking topamax twice a day. Ever since, the visuals are still there. Less of an ache. Haha.

I have diagnosed chronic migraine with aura since I was a child. But, when I started to smoke pot around 2012, they dissapeared to the point that I had to drunk a lot for notice him.

 

Now, with HPPD, I'm still free, I have headhaches, but differents that I had. I think, you know what is a migraine and a simply pain of head, as me.

 

Now, I don't touch any drug for headhaches, only a dark room and pennyroyal*

 

*lol, I traduce it with google and don't know if I'm talking about pennis

One of causes thar are supposed in headhache is inflamation, and ibuprofen is an antinflamatory, so, it can help you.

I had suffered since I was a child, and ibuprofen was my best friend a lot of weekends (more than any human, lol)

Do you get confusing tension headaches in the morning?

 

As soon as I get up they usually lift. But it makes me super-hard to not get up because of it sometimes. Happends 2-3 days a week, it could be related to bruxism and a tense jaw musculature. I had this problem but milder pre-HPPD.

I used to have frequent headaches during my first year with hppd. Clenching my jaw during sleep and also at times of stress was one of the reasons. Rubbing my jaw and neck muscles with peppermint oil helped me a lot with that.

But I also had some headaches without any apparent reason. I guess it is mainly related to the anxiety and stress that comes with the onset of hppd.

Mine seem to diminish too during the recent months, not sure if it's related to Keppra or maybe the piece of hard plastic that I force myself to use every night that's doing it's job. I was clenching my jaw during sleep pre-HPPD too with these headaches so I'm not sure. Damn I'm too old for being 23.

      Hi, I'm 16 and 5 months ago I smoked weed for the first time, never have taken any sort of drug before that. I had a really bad trip, followed by panic attacks and heavy depersonalization/derealization. When I woke up the next day for the whole entire week it looked like everything was in fast forward. After that week the world started to look dreamlike out of nowhere and then I got used to the symptom (especially after I knew it couldn't hurt me) and it kinda went away, my dp/dr was going away too but I was still pretty anxious and shaken up by the whole experience. About 2 months ago I was walking down the street and my vision started focusing and unfocusing, and I was back in a dream state. I started experiencing all types of really scary visual symptoms like static, after-images, looking up in the sky and seeing all these little tiny white dots (SO MANY), vision skips, tunnel vision, flashing whenever I look at lights, I even have seen colors or glimmers on walls before. Objects have violently shaken up until I blinked, when I bite down on my nail everything goes up and down with it (it's really hard to explain) or when I chew the whole world shakes with every bite. I can't look up, down, then side to side or else my eyes feel so fucked. I have this head pressure 24/7, reading is hard as the letters shift every 10 seconds.  I am so so scared, I know you guys probably don't care but before this, I was a really good student, ran track, had plans of going to college and I can't even walk outside now without everything looking so fucking weird. I feel like I'm going crazy. Did I permanently fuck up my brain? Does this even sound like Hppd or something else? I have no one else to really talk to about this because no one else in my life understands, everyone I know just smokes weed and it perfectly fine, Please please if you have ANY advice or can relate to any of my symptoms I would really appreciate it.

      Hi,
      Just found out that this forum exists and a few months ago what HPPD is. Figured I share my story what made me come here sadly
      Around year ago I did my first ever psychedelic around 50ug of LSD, even before that a year I did 2-3 times MDMA, for the first days I didnt notice anything unusual, I felt good actually. Then came the strange morphings in my visions in low light conditions, I actually saw my tattoo on my forearm become a full sleeve on my arm, for many months after still...strange feeling, I immediately know whats going on, some kind of after effect of the LSD, so I got scared away from psychedelics,...after that I only touched weed which I had no problem with it, up until this point, a few weeks ago, I been on a really down point of my life, been struggling with anxiety and depression most my life, but the last few years I felt like its getting better, however, I figured I give a try to microdosing LSD, maybe I will get my life together with the help of it. I always looked at drugs as tools, never as something just for fun, so I started 2 weeks ago, taking around ~30ug, then 3 days off, and again..until the 4th time, I felt positive I really thought this can help me, get things set in my life. but...after the last dosage, on the next day I went to bed for an afternoon sleep, got a weird like LSD dream, which best I could describe as the oncoming of LSD that feeling, that gets stronger and stronger, at that point I woke up, all of a sudden, panting and somewhat scared,.. with a ringing ear(tinnitus) and mild visual snow,(i think i had it before but now more aware maybe?!, and the floaters. I knew what was going on, HPPD - because around 2-3 months ago I bumped into this HPPD thing, so I briefly looked it up.
      Like everyone else here, I'm also scared that I have two live with this and just wont go away, and literally no cure for it,
      Also annoyed by the fact that didn't even properly had the chance to know more about psychedelics, because I still want to know whats my mind has inside, but my well being is more important.
      However I gonna stop experimenting, even with weed, been on regularly weed(2-3times a week) which helped me the most, but I tried smoking few days ago, and made the tinnitus worse sooo...,
      I'm just try and gonna focus on things that matter now, stay focused, get goals, live life without fears, get a better life!
      I just really wish the ringing would go away, thats really annoying, I don't wanna focus on it and dwell on it every time I hear it in my head, but it's there..hopefully gonna slowly go away.
      Peace!

      Has anyone had any positive effects OR negative effects with kratom or valerian? Specifically red vein kratom.
      Does taking either of these plants affect your HPPD? In what way? Thank you! 🙂

      Hi I am new to this forum and this is my first time posting. I believe I am a minor sufferer of HPPD. I have used several psychedelics a small number of times (LSD, 2cb, mdma) and a few months ago whilst taking mdma near the end of the high I smoked a joint to help me sleep and a few minutes after strong visuals onset and I had a strongly visual psychedelic experience akin to LSD lasting 4-6 hours. Ever since then I have had visual snow (more pronounced in very low light) and eye floaters when it is bright. I get closed eye visuals sometimes. I still smoke weed which makes the visuals worse but still much less prominent than the visuals on a full acid trip. When I sober up the visual snow goes back it's normal level. Since reading about HPPD the advice seems to be stopping taking all drugs but I really enjoy smoking weed as it brings me a lot of wellness and mental health benefits. I would like to continue to do so if possible. It has been 4 or 5 months since the HPPD started and my symptoms have not worsened. I am wondering if there is anyone that has this condition that still can smoke weed without Ill effect? Is it feasible that I could continue to do this?
