I got my DP/DR from a terrible MDMA comedown (where I was having 20 panic attacks a day etc.). At one point, I thought I was literally gonna die (I thought I had serotonin syndrome) and rushed to hospital.

I did not get the DP/DR from MDMA per se, as for 2 days after using the drug I was "ok". It was the comedown itself that transitioned me into DP/DR.

Since then, I've been suffering from muscle tightness, DP/DR, constant feeling of unease. It was like my adrenaline was super super high at the start and slowly it decreased like 50%, but it's still a lot higher than before I ever took MDMA if you understand. One time I felt better was after getting on a plane abroad, I believe it released so much adrenaline that it made me feel better when I landed, since I had been so scared to fly beforehand.

I also suffer from mood swings and bouts of anger/rage. I do not suffer from flashbacks or nightmares (although I had a couple where I took the drug again in the 1st month after the comedown). I am extremely scared of/anxiety triggered by doing things like taking omega 3 tablets etc. At first I was scared to even drink coffee or eat chocolate (as it might affect my brain??). If I smell weed I literally hold my breath and walk as fast as i can, even though it's not really possible for me to get high.

I wake up a couple times each night, although I don't really have trouble falling asleep. I felt like since the comedown, I have not had a moment where I've felt truly calm/relaxed in 2.5 years. It does feel like my sympathetic nervous system "turned on" and never "turned off". This is why I am considering the Stellate Ganglion Block.

I have read a case on "SuicideWatch" sadly, of a guy who was inpatient for DP/DR and anxiety, other problems and then had the Stellate Ganglion Block done. He said this made his DP/DR worse and he couldn't feel his body. I am scared to go for it, although in my case I feel that it might help me.

Opinions?

Also, for some reason St John's Wort made me go back into severe anxiety and DP/DR (after 1.5-2 years of low level DP/DR and anxiety, more mood swings and rage). I believe it's because it raised my norepinepherine?
