Hi guys

I got depersonalization disorder in summer 2011 when I was 14 years old. I'm 22 now. It was brought on by an anxiety attack after I smoked weed.


In this study 30 active military service members with combat-related PTSD were offered a stellate ganglion block as part of their treatment program. Patients reported greatest improvement in the first week after SGB for the following symptoms:

irritability or angry outbursts
difficulty concentrating
sleep disturbance

2 to 4 months later, patients reported greatest improvement in the following:

feeling distant or cut off
feeling emotionally numb
irritability or angry outbursts
difficulty concentrating

It is hypothesized that trauma leads to an increase in nerve growth factor in the stellate ganglion. This in turn leads to a sprouting of sympathetic nerves, which increases the production of a number of neurotransmitters, including adrenaline and norepinephrine, which makes people anxious. Stellate ganglion block leads to a reduction in nerve growth factor and sprouting of sympathetic nerves, which helps reverse trauma/anxiety symptoms.

Here is the mechanism explainted in detail:


Here is some other stuff about stellate ganglion block and PTSD:

amazing    i wonder if this process can be performed here in sydney where i live..........i also experienced twice  a huge unblocking and alertness as a shiatsu practitioner was working  my neck   and when an other osteopathy practitioner after relaxing massage   pulled back my head as i was in horizontal position using a special belt that was garbing my hall neck chin and head. I also believe that whole blocks of nerves and muscles can become numb blocked reproducing an unnatural seance of self and triggering vicious circles of anxiety and new LEVELS OF DP DR.

I remember reading about this years ago as a treatment for PTSD, specifically war veterans.  I remember in the article, the soldier felt that calmness right away.  That's awesome that this helped you!  I think right now, the only possible way to have this procedure in the US would be if you had PTSD or could contact the US doctor who was using this method.  For some reason, I think he was up north...maybe Chicago or so.

turns out this is recognised in America, if I or someone can find a place in the UK i'm gonna do it 



EDIT: places do this for PTSD everywhere, just found one in the UK. I'll keep you posted, just organised a phone consultation, this is so worth a punt, some of the stuff I am reading is gold, just when you think you've read it all. This sounds promising, best thread i've read, thanks OP

Im taking it with a pinch of salt for now. Good for you though! If I see another miracle from someone else, I will be willing to give it a go.


Incidentally my C2 is out of place, I get neck discomfort. I dont know how related this is, but had already arranged to see an osteopath this wkend before reading this. Once I saw him and got miraculous relief that lasted a few hours.. another time though, nothing. But its giving me jip so will get it sorted and let people know what happens
