hi I am a mother of my 20 year old son and I came to this website looking for some help.
His situation is a bit complicated...
Before I explain my son's situation here is a brief history: Used some recreational drugs and excessive amount of marijuana for 7 month.
Well I'll get to the point while he was high he had a very bad trip. He complained to me about being very spaced out, anxious, depressed and just extremely confused. He said the surrounding seemed very unreal and it was making him very anxious all the time. He just complained about his sanity. But he refused to take treatment and things got slowly better. He wasn't socializing much but he made himself busy to forget his symptoms and somehow it worked for him. He wasn't hearing any voices or anything but he felt akathesia, trouble sleeping, suicidal etc..he said his body felt extremely stressed. He said he felt freaked out just being alive since everything was so unreal.
He said the bad trip came from heavy intoxication from sativa? ( type of marijuana ? )
Anyway he was semi-recovered after 3 month he no longer felt spaced out but still had a mood problem. We went to the psych doctor for some treatment and unfortunately drugs that the psych gave made my son even more crazier. He complained that the drugs were worse than the cannabis induced-whatever mental illness. He nearly killed himself couple of times and now he is off the drugs but still very unstable.
He complains about a sensation in his head that feels like "thinking" does that makes sense? + A uncomfortable sensation back of his neck, a tingling feeling.
He says he feels like his thinking of something he says he feels pressured to think and all this is making him agitated. He is very severely depressed but refuses psych attention because of the horrendous experience. He knows that this sensation, feelings are irrational but he seems to be caught up by it.
He is also able to socialize a little because he can momentarily forget about his symptoms. Also complains about suicidal feelings and the urges which was managed before using psych drugs.
We recently went to a endo doctor to see if his symptoms were physical
He was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism and a very very low testosterone and the doctor wants to treat his hormones right away and the doctor believes its the hormones that is causing this however
a second opinion would be great. Me and my hubby are very worried....thank you
