MDMA Overdose, One the Worst Experiences Ever

Last week I went out from friday until monday morning. Monday morning ending in the hospital...

Basicly I never take amps anymore to stay awake so I figured I would try to do it with MDMA. It worked, for 2 days it worked just fine. After the second day I started to get much less energy from it and on the last dosage I had to take nearly half a gram of it to get any energy from it to stay awake. Than I did not take any for about 8 hours until I came at a club at the night between sunday and monday. At around 0400 I did my OD. I took over half a gram at 0400. By now I was awake for 2 or 3 days straight having taken a total of 3 grams MDMA.
I was awake for 2 or 3 days straight having taken a total of 3 grams MDMA.

I went to puke because I knew it was too much, about half an hour later my head started to get heavy pressure on it and I was feeling really bad. I went outside because I felt like I needed to get colder the pressure seemed worse as I was inside. I tryd to drink enough because my mouth was feeling dry very fast. At this point the pressure in my head was becoming the worst I ever experienced in my life. It was like I was going to get internal bleeding at any moment. Than I knew I had to get to the hospital asap so I called my friends outside and asked me to bring me to the hospital.

Once arrived at the hospital the dokters did not do much, they put me on a bed in the emergency room and took my temperature and my blood pressure, my blood pressure was much higher than normal but my temperature was only a few C higher than normal. But the pressure I was feeling in my head was making my get the shakes and I coudent stand it anymore it was like I was dying, and the doktors also looked worried that I might not survive. They gave me charcoal to drink to remove any left over acids in my stomach alltho fairly surely by now (1 hour after taking OD) I had already absorbed everything into my bloodstream.

It took a few hours of the worst pain/pressure in my head ever, I could ever reduce the pressure I was feeling in my head by pressing with one hand at the back of my head at the base of my skull. I dont know what caused this insane pressure I was feeling but it really felt like dying. About 3 hours later the pressure started to reduce and the pain was only slight now. They released me from the hospital in the afternoon after they were satisfied I was going to be ok.

The day after the experience I called in sick for work because I was not feeling very well yet, I was still a bit dizzy and generally feeling energy less. I was also hearing this wierd high pitched buzzing noise in my head sometimes. When its completely quiet in the room I'm in, it comes from my head.

It is now 5 days since I been in the hospital, I havent seen a dokter since and I dont think the dokters know whats wrong with me either if I would go to see one, they dont have much experience with this stuff. I am still experiencing this high pitched buzzing noise sometimes
I am still experiencing this high pitched buzzing noise sometimes
and I'm also still getting mini-blackouts where I'm feeling dizzy. I wonder how long this will take to go away if ever and what damage I may have caused with my MDMA overdose.

Its hard to describe how I feel now, but sometimes I get these mini-blackouts where I feel dizzy all of a sudden, and generaly I am feeling depressed. Be carefull with MDMA people it can kill u for sure as I now know, I will never take it again.
