Inconsolable Mental Symptoms.

These sensations and feelings are very simple and basic.

These things have been happening for 5-6 weeks now. Bear with me.

First off: I stopped smoking weed and cigarettes almost two months ago.

It started off with visual hallucinations. Involuntarily focused on intense static.

It didn't bother me at first. I thought I'd ride it through, until they subsided.

Then I started having the symptoms of panic attacks. Non-stop.

4 days after the panic attacks, I ended up having to quit caffeine also.

I used to drink Energy Drinks hardcore. Redbull and Amp.

Been drinking soda since I was young.

I'm 19 and smoked pot and ciggs from the age of 15 about.

I smoked more heavily from the ages of 17-19.

This is also my second time quitting everything. So I imagine the effect on my brain is X2.

Two of the worst symptoms, which scarred me, and changed my perceptions:

Depersonalization and Unreality. Also with emphasis on Spirituality.

So I'm trying really freaking hard to see things from a SANE perspective.

After all this stress. I give myself a break whenever possible.

Sometimes it's like: This is BS! I want no part of any of this.

----

Okay, I've gotten a better handle on things. Those were the earlier symptoms. I don't think I need advice on the previous stuff, but it's FYI!

The most important things I need help with are

Intense Brain Fog / Mental Fogginess.

It feels like something is moving inside my head, sometimes my whole body.

Cloudiness and Emptiness.

I feel like my Head is a Balloon, and it's filled with HELIUM

A MOVING ENERGY IN MY HEAD. A sinking and falling feeling

It's like having that Hypnagogia feeling in head.. most of the day...

It's like it grabs a hold of me and Shakes me, and Twitches my brain and nerves. Then I feel disconnected from everything. Loud noises make it worst

It's like a nasty flash that I snap into, and it makes me nauseous.




I don't need the best advice. I just need immediate advice. and assistance.

And I've been looking up advice this whole time.

Re: Inconsolable Mental Symptoms.

Did you quit smoking weed and cigs before or after all these symptoms occurred?

Do you do any other recreational drugs or prescription drugs that could be interacting?

Re: Inconsolable Mental Symptoms.

No. This all happened a few weeks after I quit.

I think I could have a combination of problems. I manage most of them.

The only drug I take is Valium. Very rarely. I'm trying to manage without meds.

I can't really explain the most disturbing symptoms.

Everything feels like a vivid dream. I feel like a Floating Gas Cloud.

Re: Inconsolable Mental Symptoms.

Huh.

None of your symptoms are typical withdrawal symptoms of either cigs or pot. Even if a regular user of both, these aren't normal.

I almost wonder if you weren't self-medicating for something that is undiagnosed. I know that sometimes people that smoke find out later that the nicotine helped with some mental issue they had. Schizophrenics, for example. (I am NOT saying I think you are schizophrenic, merely citing an example of an illness that is "helped" by smoking.)

This is concerning. Can you see a doctor?

Re: Inconsolable Mental Symptoms.

That's exactly what I thought.

I thought this was part of my suffering, but it may be something separate from my spiritual side. I'm reducing my stress on those things.

Nothing seems to be consistent enough to be classified as a single illness.

It's mainly the symptoms I described.

Nothing else is bothering me. It's the Moving Energy in my head that is.

Kind of a Mushy feeling. Relaxation brings the feeling out.

edit:

Everyday I feel better, but then something new happens.

Like a new form of the same thing.

This time it makes me dizzy. (and afraid)

Re: Inconsolable Mental Symptoms.

Is there any chance that what you are feeling is anxiety? I don't know quite what to make of the movement of energy in your head, but you said relaxing helps, which makes me wonder if you might be under a lot of stress right now and perhaps that is causing your symptoms? It's amazing what stress can do to us.

Re: Inconsolable Mental Symptoms.

I have been researching and found that an overgrowth of yeast/fungus in you body can cause these symptoms. A simply spit test reveals if you have it or not, just spit in a full glass of water(saliva only) If it stays in a nice bubble then you are fine,,,if it grows tentical looking legs that stretch out and become cloudy...then you have it. I just ordered a product called Threelac. I am gonna give it a shot. Good Luck!

Re: Inconsolable Mental Symptoms.

Hey there,

I guess you are suffering with this because you have totally quit smoking and other habits and this time you did quit it for a long time. If this is the case, it is because you were mostly addicted and now you are resisting it, which is good. This will change as the time passes by and I would suggest you to look out for a Doctor and take a short treatment.
I hope you will feel much better after that.
Take care
