My post reflected a sample of herbs and drugs I've tried over the course of the last 5 years or so. I never took them togather - I'd try one, suffer from side effects, than go on to another. I know that GHB is often considered the perfect sleep aid by many, which is whymy results seemed so anomalous. Where most people pass out from taking high doses of GHB, I'd get slightly drowsy, but at the same time my heart would start pounding as if it was about to burst out of my chest. Is there such a thing as dopamine sensitivity? It seems like anything that raisese my dopamine levels revs my engine - raises my heartbeat. Actually, it's more that my heart pounds... not much faster than normal, but the contractions are very noticeable. It makes it impossible to sleep.
I also suffer from slight brain fog - I assume from chronic anxiety and depression. I tried Ativan to alleviate it, but I found it made me somewhat more confused, made it impossible to sleep, and gave me unbearable ringing in the ears, and something like auitory hallucinations - I woke up with conversations running through my head, and I had music 'playing' in my head all day. I caouldn't ignore it and it never stopped.
Anyway - what I'm hoping for is for someone to read this hodgepodge of symptoms and say "Ah! You have 'X' syndrome! Take 'Y' supplement and life will be peachy". Any input is welcome - I need to find something that will both give me the desire to continue living as well as allow me to function at work.
