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 state that I've never used psychedelics, I'm here because I have a friend who says he has hppd after a bad trip, what are your symptoms? I also have After-images, objects that leave trails, visual snow (especially in poorly lit areas) if I look for more than 10 seconds one thing I see it moving and breathing (even the text I'm writing now, if I pay attention I can see it move) if I look at square surfaces I can see static lights that create geometric shapes (even as a child I could lol) if I notice I have a ton of floaters, with all this I want to say that these "bugs" we have them all, only that we ignore them because they are not important for our conscience. the friend who claims to have hppd to me seems more that has a kind of ptsd that is activated when you notice these visual "bugs", then I noticed that even if I focus so much on the visual snow for example I will start to notice it more until you can not ignore it until something does not distract my attention, if we obsess about a little thing the brain will end up growing it until it becomes a problem, I could even be wrong but this friend has solved quite a bit 'of visual problems simply ignoring them, when he saw them he looked away and did not think about it, in this way the brain has activated again that filter that serves to remove the visual noise, the important thing is to make the brain understand that that information is not important to you. sorry if I wrote badly but I used google translator, thanks for reading

      Hey everyone,
      I have had HPPD for like 3 months now, and I was just wanting to know if anyone knew what this was? I have discovered a black dot at the left side of my left eye. (The very far peripheral, i can't really make it out to well unless I blink) and I was wondering if this was related to HPPD? or if anyone has experienced this too? if i look forward and then blink a lot, I can see it gets bigger then fades away. I do overthink tremendously so i don't know if it is maybe just my eyelashes? or if i'm looking at the inside my eye and thinking its in my feild of view? or maybe its just the crease of my eye that i'm seeing?? anyway i'm quite scared because when i look it up i find sites for retinal detachment, and that scares me becasue i can only see out of one eye. if anyone could give me an answer to calm my nerves that would be great.
      thanks!
      PS. i'm going to the opticians soon to get it checked out. 
      PSS. I also have autism so i am hypersensitive.

      Hello guys, it's been a year since i had the same problem as you. Always exactly 1 year I took 150ug of LSD and had a terrible bad trip that traumatized me and left me sequels. I had flashbacks and I missed a lot because of it. Distorted visions in my peripheral field. All this was cured with antipsychotics, especially risperidone (I can not remember the dosage). But what it took to be cured was the emotional sequel that caused me. Psychedelic experiences transform you radically and unfortunately if you are not prepared for them it may take a long time for you to get back on track and I confess that I am not yet 100% healed of this trauma. But what I can say to you is that the worst of all this is not the visions, but the horrible thoughts that go through our heads thanks to the anxiety that causes us. And what I want to know about this post is just that. What are the thoughts that torment you because of this anxiety? Write them in the comments and we'll help each other by talking about them. For example, I used to think all the time that I was getting schizophrenic, that there would be some outbreak, over time this evolved into existential crises where I thought my soul was lost in space time and I was not living reality, just watching it (depersonalization and derealization helped in this).
