I'm at my Wits end. I'm 21 years old. For almost two years I've been having these symptoms.
So, I used to smoke marijuana very very rarely. One night I smoked and had a panic attack, something I never had before.
Ever since around that time I've been experiencing this weird brain fog/zoned out 24/7, almost like I'm on auto-pilot, random muscle twitches throughout my body every few minutes or so. My memory is poor, I sometimes slur my speech and gets words mixed up like instead of saying two words I'll combine them into one. I have very little emotion.
I have also had this very tough yellow coating on my tounge with weird spots on the back of my tongue. Originally thought it was thrush and received medication but hadn't resided. No matter how hard I scrub it will come back. I also smoke cigarettes but when I quit for 6 months I still had the coating.
I've been to physiologists, I have had a brain MRI, an EEC(not sure if that's the name but something similiar, a load of sensors on head monitoring activity for half an hour) thyroid levels checked, electrolytes also. My doctor thinks it could be anxiety but I have nothing to be anxious about. (Apart from these symptoms)
I was given anxiety medication that did nothing started at 50MG up to 150 MG ( don't know names but one was Lustral) which strangely gave me a panic attack recently so I decided to come off them.
It's affecting me in college and life, can't hold down friendships or relationships. I have had thoughts of suicide but not because I'm down but because there's no point in living my life like this. I'm not the same person inside that I was 2 years ago.
I'm going back to my doctor tomorrow before going to a psychiatrist to ask if it could be a virus like H-polari. Any advice or ideas about this are much appreciated!
