Help, what do you think about these Symptoms?

Recommended Posts

Hi, my name is Fernando, I'm from Argentina. 3 weeks ago I had an 'incident' with a marihuana brownie. I ate 2 slices, it was the first time I tried marihuana in brownies (I smoked sometimes in the week). An hour later, I had delirant ideas coming to me (fear, despersonlization, bad thoughts, fear to lose control). I was in a constant loop of fear during 3 hours. I had visual allucinations (red lines and dots). 

After the incident, I spent a week feeling afraid of everything, and with 2 panic attacks. I started therapy, and I'm feeling better now. However, I still think that I have any visual disorder since the incident. The lights seems more bright, and when I look around the light I see a kind of "waves". I dont know if its HPPD or just paying more attention to those details that I didnt see before. Should I go to an eye specialist? 

Thank you for reading.

Sounds like you had a panic attack, not uncommon with edibles.

Regarding visuals, hard to say if you are just paying extra attention to things because of the panic attack. Some people get hallucinations from weed, especially if they've done hallucinogens previously.

I can relate to u my friend . i am here because of weed but dont be scared and try to stay calm (try meditation). I had a panic attack the very first time when i was stoned and i was overanalyzing everything . i was seing some static while i was high. This continued and i smoked for the second time and my vs increased to afterimages, palinopsia. U are in a bettef situation that me so remain calm and as long as u stay out of drugs and alcohol in my opinion u will be better regardless. U can also better ur self care. I did it. Try cold showers , lower ur sugar, stop drinking sodas and junk foods, drink plenty of water, try nofap and dont focus on the things u cant change . time will heal u just like it did to me. Think of it as a way to change urself for the best. Try to be the best version of urself. Try meditating and spending more time with ur family. Ffs tell them that u love them my friend! Life is all about balance and we need to be thankful to be alive! Have a positive day!
