Let's talk about stranger/individual symptoms

16 posts in this topic

Hey guys, I'm just curious to hear about any symptoms that you have which you don't see mentioned a lot on here, maybe it's just small things you notice? or maybe it's a symptom that you can't accurately pin on anything that's already defined, just out of curiosity? 

For me I see trails of smoke everywhere quite often, almost like the visual snow is moving in cohesive clouds and is obscuring my vision, this usually happens indoors. Also certain syllables that I hear sound sort of "squelchy" for lack of a better word, there's a self service kiosk at my local shop and it always sounds like it's saying "touch the sqween to start", it doesn't really bother me but it does make me giggle sometimes which makes me look crazy.

Would be really interested in anything you guys have?

I see images in my head that are reminiscent of CEVs, but with my eyes open.

My consciousness can expand or contract inside my head.

Anything visual you see externally, I see internally.

I have a few!

The first 3-4 years with hppd, I could see a cross in my vision, like a religious cross. this was especially apparent at night.

After stupidly smoking salvia... I saw huge 3d cogs overlaid onto my normal hppd for about 2 years.

If I look at a straight edge, eg, the top of the tv set... I see what I can only describe as little electrical tornadoes spinning across the surface.

Non visual... I often get bouts of a feeling of dread, like something really bad is around the corner.

I get what you mean about the internal visions, I find that also if I have an image in my head it will always end up bending into different symmetrical fractal shapes, making in frustrating to try and visualize anything.

Have never experienced macropsia, that's gotta interfere with daily life some! I also have this thing where still images all look 3d, like if there's a picture of someone on a poster or something they have more depth than they should have.

I get this feeling a lot too! it used to cause me to panic every time but I've come to accept it now, although it has left me feeling pretty negative about life most of the time.

Yea, nothing showed up. The only oddity was that they noted my eyes flickered constantly. Like when in REM sleep. They didn't seem to think that was particularly interesting though.

I need to get a qEEG, i think

Another lesser known symptom, though others have mentioned it.... I used to get very horrific CEVs, like scenes from hell. Death, mutliation, rape etc

I stopped watching any porn, horror movies etc and that seems to have fixed it.

I also get feelings of dread but it's more of a feeling like everything is pointless and meaningless and featureless. It's a feeling of being incapable of feeling joy and like the world is just flat and dead. I also used to feel this strongly on a physical level, I could feel the dread in my head and this is also connected to my bad mushroom trip. I read about Stanislav Grof's Perinatal Matrices and what he described as Matrix II resembles these feelings well.

I also got feelings of like having an abyss in my head or a hole which sucks up my brain/ mind, kind of. Yikes.

So its like a nihilism on a tangible visceral level?

Yes kind of, I sometimes use the term "nihilistic" trying to describe it. It might appear just like a combination of derealization and depression but I feel like it's "deeper" than just that. I don't really feel it on a such a strong physical level anymore but correlating thought patterns still occur. However I'm optimistic this will dissipate over time.

You ever get migraines? I feel something similar to this when I'm having a bad migraine episode.

I get migraines since 2005, not all the time but often enough. Have been wondering if there is a correlation to my weird reaction to psilocybin. However this dreadful feeling and migrain headaches don't really appear simultaneously and I didn't get this feeling before I took mushrooms.
