Its been a year, ive been having the same symptoms- have they worn off? Have you found a solution?
You are clearly suffering from anxiety, at your age you are certainly thinking about a lot that's happening around you ranging from friends, family, studies etc. Most people at this juncture of their age, go through some radical changes in their life and that takes a toll on body and mind.
In this situation, it won't be a good idea to consume marijuana, especially at your age when your brain is developing, this is your age to learn and face the realities of life, marijuana is an escapist's support system, you don't want to go there. There are umpteen psychedelic priests and they sure have a lot of data to profess how good marijuana is for you or how it's harmless. However, nothing can change the science that it depletes your brain cells and would slow down the process of decision making. Also, it is a gateway to some other recreational drugs which is not good for health.
The other meds that you are on are not good for you as suggested by members, you can try alternate techniques to ease up; meditation, breathing exercises, eating healthy and running can be great ways to calm your mind down.
Don't be worried, this is a great time for you, follow your dream, go for that hike, play that sport you like, serenade that girl, have fun :)
I have the same problem i felt like that constantly att school worrying about when am i going to lose myy head, whyy can i remember things, and why do i talk to my self in my mind saying wtf is going on. Ik exactly how youu feel and this feeling is an anxiety attack, and derealization. I went to the doctor's every week to see wtf is going on with me and it took 3 months after smoking that weed to finally get an answer saying i was suffering from anxiety and depression. Now i see my therapist every week and i have to say i am getting better a little at a time, and if i worked out every day i would probably have been better by now. I would see a therapist as soon as you can and muster the courage to tell your parents if you have not done so because even if you think they won't understand stand you have to remember their your parents, they have loved you since the beginning and done dumb stuff as well. Hope you feel better soon and remember it's all in your head . Feel better soon :)
When did you start the Zoloft? The side effects you are mentioning are also side effects of taking Zoloft. Look, you're only 16, your brain is still developing, if you started Zoloft because of one bad pot experience, I'm not sure that's the best solution, though you might have started it for a different reason. Both drugs are not great for 16 year olds because of this issue, assuming they are okay for anyone. I started pot at that age as well, and it was great for a long time, but then I started getting anxious on it. This is common, and probably what happened to you -- you got stoned, as intended the drug changed your perception of reality, and for you that wasn't such a good thing. Time will take care of this if it's the only reason you have this problem. It's very possible you're holding onto the bad experience, which might indicate a predisposition to some anxiety issues, but it also might just be the drug didn't agree with you this time around. All the above that Mom said is great help for you, but I just wanted to add to it from my own experience growing up at a time when pretty much everyone was using drugs, these drugs have been made much stronger, especially pot, by people who want your money, not your wellbeing. What was once a pretty mild wild plant is now a very strong drug, and you're too young for it. If you must try it, wait until you're 21 and your brain has settled. For now, it's not for you, and I think this will pass if you stop focusing on it so much, again assuming there wasn't already some stuff going on you haven't mentioned. Peace.
So, clearly weed is not a great fit for you. I wouldn't try it again as it doesn't agree with everyone and you clearly are an example of that. And with your anxiety being so heightened, I'd speak to your doctor. You may not be on the right medication or the right dose of medication and they need to be aware of how you are feeling. You can leave out the smoking weed part if you are afraid of getting in trouble as that may have triggered how you feel but unlikely to be the reason the situation is lingering. Eating enough (to match your exercise)? Ever have low blood sugar issues? Sounds like you are hydrating, which is good. How about getting enough rest? Being chronically tired can lead to not feeling our best. What about your inner ear? Dysfunction with something like the Eustachian tube can lead to dizziness. But back to depression and anxiety. It does sound like this is a definite factor. Speak to your doctor about your symptoms. They should do a physical looking at what potential causes could be to rule them out. Talk to your parents also to get them on board with the fact you aren't feeling right. And if it is determined it is anxiety/mental health related, then please take that seriously. Remember, that good mental health is not just about taking medication. While that can help and is appropriate for some people, it is much more than just that component. Working through anxiety with a psychologist would be ideal. AT your age in particular so you can get a handle on things. Understanding your triggers and learning ways to cope will be essential.
