I write this through a groggy haze after my night on the tiles with MAV last night.
In the beginning my nights were bad - the internal rocking used to threaten to throw me off the bed Excorsist style and sometimes I would have 1/4 spins (slightly less than the half spins I’ve become accustomed to).
After starting on the Nori the first 2 - 3 weeks were hell. I remember one night trying to get to sleep and I was so bad, my friend had to come and stay in the bed with me and wait for me to fall asleep - I was spinning every time I closed my eyes and the rocking was a violent turbulence.
Then things started to settle… ever so gradually the nights became much easier and the longer I was on the Nori and pushing the dose up, the easier it became. The rocking was now down to a mild 10% annoyance which I could ignore.
Then last night happened and almost landed me in hospital.
I got through the day at work yesterday pretty much unscathed, and got home. Went to the supermarket shopping with mum to get all the food for my b’day bbq on Sat - was feeling good. Came home, had a chicken wing and a piece of French bread for dinner and then went to bed around 10pm.
As I got in my room I had this falling forward feeling, which passed after a few seconds. I shrugged it off and climbed into bed - and then the fun began. Each time I closed my eyes I could feel the room starting to spin to the right (all my half spins/brain backflips are to the right). I was trying to ignore it when I got the most killer brain zap going - it literally electricuted me to the point I almost somersaulted out of bed!
Then I got about 10 more slightly milder zaps and my heart was racing and pounding in my chest. Each time I closed my eyes, I felt like the bed was being tipped up and I kept getting up to splash cold water on my face and check my surroundings.
Then after about 20 mins I was laying there willing myself to calm down when I got this numb feeling throughout my body followed by pins and needles everywhere that lasted a few mins. I totally freaked out and wanted to take myself to the ER. I got up and took a Valium and just layed back in bed praying that whatever was happening to me would pass. I was terrified. Eventually I fell asleep and stayed asleep.
Today I feel tired, groggy, out of sorts and wondering how I’m going to make it through today at work.
I’m also so anxious about tomorrow now feeling like this and having 15 people over for a bbq!
Any thoughts people on what happened and how do the nights treat the rest of you?
