    Hi, I'm searching for someone who did have same experience or can somehow advise on what can help to relieve state that I'm into. Two years ago I tried magic shrooms. Specially this type: Psilocybe_cubensis

    This was a one time experience. I had never tried something else or something similar before. My friend was a sitter. The trip end up bad, with no hallucination, just a lot of talks and overall bad feelings. In the morning I got up with a headache. After one week which went into depression, panic attacks, depersonalization and a lot of other bad staff. But what was the worst - the headache which didn't went away after two years. Now after two years I went through numeruos doctors, but head is still in pain. Doctors usually say that I don't have any physical problems. Psychotherapists advise different drugs on bipolar disorder, antidepressant and other similar stuff.

    Did anyone experienced smth similar? What can you advice? Are there doctors who work with similar problems? Is there actually anything that can help? Thanks for any advice.

    Some options
    1. It sounds like you took toxic mushrooms instead of psychedelic ones
    2. Your mushrooms were contaminated with harmfull bacteria or other pathogens, maybe viral.
    3. It triggered or aggravated an existing conditions your already had

    Maybe its a posture thing? Some people when they take psilocybin mushrooms it adjusts posture, it always happens to me and I did find a trip report once of it happening to someone else. I have no idea how common this reaction is but it can happen. Possibly your posture was changed and now giving you headaches. What is the level of your physical activity?

    Lodewijkp, this was shrooms that were grown by friend of mine. He and some of his friends tasted them, so I suppose that they were normal shrooms. I don't know if they did contain some bacterias or pathogens. Is this can somehow be tested? Anyway nothing was found in my blood.

    Thinking_Iris, I do some yoga and running. But I would rather say that my physical activity is very low.

    I'm not too sure what to think then, have you tried acupuncture?
