I have been on a long journey over the past 7 or so years. With addiction to marijuana and alcohol. I have developed drug induced psychosis. I had social anxiety and depression. All of which have been resolved. I have been off marijuana for 12 months, but have used only lightly for 4 years. I used for 5 years everyday in massive amounts. I drank every day for about 3 years. Now I drink 4 days a week on average between 4 and 8 (budweisers) as an international standard for alcohol content. For a lot of the time I had a problem with pot, I was experiencing seizures almost every time I used. (clonic) simple partial. With the occasional semi-conscious episode. Now I get Tonic seizures at night and rapid unpredictable mood swings, that only seem to affect me interally.(feel very agressive toward no one or nothing in particular).I get myoclonic seizures randomly.Could this be explained by my current level of alcohol use. or is there something neurological that requires further investigation?
Reviewing your medical history, most of your symptoms are most likely because of withdrawal, but it is creditable that you have managed to come out of the horrible situation.
Alcohol consumption needs to be further reduced to two days and tobacco should not be used with alcohol. For your seizures you should visit a neurologist who may add various drugs to reduce them. It's okay to be on certain drugs rather than run the risk of these seizures, which may harm you more.
You are strongly recommended to go for relaxation exercises, meditation or an engaging hobby to eliminate stress, a healthy lifestyle needs to be followed.
