Psychedelics left me weird and messed up
I took a very low dose of psychedelic shrooms 8 days ago. As expected, it was a very mild trip without any major hallucinations (just bright lights and happy feeling), but it took over 9h for it to come down instead of the usual 5-6h, because I decided to dose a little extra 3h into the trip.
Since the come down, I've been having weird/high/heavy feelings in my head all day long, accompanied by diziness, nausea and a weak and uneasy feeling in my arms, legs and jaw. But I also have periods inbetween where I am completely symptom free for 12 hours. It looks like my brain can't decide whether to stay in the heavy "trippy" state or in the normal state. It just switches back and forth every 24 or 12 hours.
It's been a week now and it's become very tiring and unbearable. However, the symptoms improved a little and the nauseous dizzy feeling has almost disappeared, leaving me mostly with the high/heavy/buzzing/weird head. I can't concentrate on daily life with this in my head. I'm not even a heavy user, because my last trip was 2 years ago. I only tripped for a total of 5 times, and those were all mild trips as well but without any after-effects like this one.
I've already been to the doctor, my blood pressure was ok and the "follow the light with your eyes" test I passed. I was also asked to extend my arms in front of me and close my eyes, which I also passed. The doctor asked me to just wait for the effects to wear off, and come back should the improvements stagnate at some point.
But still, compared to other psychedelics users, a 9h trip should not be a cause for this, because people have been happily having trips of over 24 hours! And what's even more confusing: those people have been doing it for years on a monthly basis without ANY lingering after effects at all. So I'm guessing it must have something to do with me.
What would cause such a thing? What can I do to help alleviate the symptoms until my brain has fully recovered itself. Speaking of recovery, how long does it take for a brain to fully recover itself from such things?
