Psychiatry 43 years experience
Kundalini syndrome: Some would suggest taking a break from your spiritual practice, and spending more time in nature. Walk barefoot, ground yourself on the earth. Do physical work and physical exercise. Eat full meals. Get plenty of rest. Avoid stimulating substances -- alcohol, drugs, coffee, and tea. Medications are not really the answer for this. You might also speak with your yoga instructor about it.
