First and foremost, you should stop using illicit drugs. They are causing major problems in your life. Taking these drugs is akin to playing with fire. You had multiple instances of frightening symptoms. To continue using drugs, despite those symptoms, would be the height of misjudgment. Consider them warning signs but also consider yourself lucky because your symptoms seem to have subsided. Not everyone is that fortunate.
The symptoms you have described all were in the past. In other words, it does not seem as though you are continuing to experience them. If you are no longer experiencing them, then it’s unlikely that you would have schizophrenia.
In addition, it’s common for people to believe that they’re developing schizophrenia after having these types of experiences. Research suggests that marijuana usage can increase the probability of developing psychotic disorders however, it seems to be a relatively rare occurrence. Obviously, no diagnosis can be given over the Internet however, I do recognize these as being common aftereffects of drug use. It’s always best to consult a mental health professional, in-person, to determine if a diagnosis is present. If you’re worried about your mental health, it would be wise to schedule a consultation.
As for the symptoms that you have had seemingly all of your life, that you are now attributing to schizophrenia, it’s unlikely that you it and never knew about it. Generally speaking, the symptoms that you are characterizing as being hallucinations and signs of schizophrenia, are not how I would characterize them. Using Google as a way to diagnose yourself is always a bad idea. It’s always best to avoid “Dr. Google” if you can help it (and you can).
Again, I cannot diagnose over the Internet but most of what you have described does not seem consistent with a diagnosis of schizophrenia. It seems more consist with a bad trip or the negative aftereffects of illicit drug usage.
It’s also important to reiterate the fact that you should avoid using illicit drugs. They can damage your brain and there are instances of individuals who have developed a severe mental illness because of their use of illicit drugs. It is dangerous and you should avoid it. If these experiences have taught you anything, let it be that illicit drug use is very risky and should be avoided. You only get one brain and you should protect it. Purposefully harming it with illegal drugs is a very bad idea. If you’re struggling with abstinence, consult a professional. They can help you to identify what is driving your need to use drugs.
I hope that this answer helps to provide some insight into what may be wrong and more importantly, to convince you to stop using illicit drugs. Good luck and please take care.
