403156 tn?1290153618 Has anyone experienced hallucinations while not being entirely depressed or manic? I have been diagnosed as BP II for almost 3 years and have never experienced hallucinations until now. I feel like I see things in my peripheral vision that are really not there. I have also occasionally heard things as well. Mood wise, I feel very stable. So this is completely alarming.
Avatar n tn It can cause all sorts of mental health problems, such as depression, anxiety, paranoia, memory problems, and sometimes hallucinations. This is a tick borne infection. It is difficult to diagnose, because the lab tests are not reliable. Doctors must make a clinical diagnosis, which means that they base the diagnosis on the patient's symptoms. For information on symptoms, testing, and diagnosis, see the information at the Canadian Lyme Foundation, CanLyme dot com.
Avatar f tn I would like to say that I'm doing better depression-wise, no stress or anxiety, not as many mood swings, and don't cut anymore (but the urges are there & i can't be around sharp objects because of the temptation). Recently, however, after the first of the year, I've been seeing people who arent there...they are further away in my vision (often peripheral) then gone in a flash. This happens a lot to me when I shuttle drive (i work for a local dealership). This happens daily & often.
2052200 tn?1332432684 Has anyone else experienced hallucinations while being diagnosed with depression? I did think it was psychotic depression at first, but I am not delusional and I know my hallucinations are not real so I have ruled that out. Please help me, what should I do? Will they go away on my own or is it okay not to tell anyone as they are not getting in the way of every day life?
Avatar m tn I've been reading up on some symptoms I've been having with my Depression and Anxiety. Recently I've started hearing voices that aren't actually there. I feel like I'm cracking up(but not in the funny way) It's only happened a few times but do you think it could become a permanent issue if I don't get help for it soon? I've been struggling with depression for years but I never heard any voices before and it's got me worried. I'm debating whether an ER visit would be fruitful or not.
Avatar m tn Having regular nap for about 20 min during day will help to prevent sleep attacks. Depression is usually not associated with Hypnagogic hallucinations. I suggest you to go for the further tests. Take care and regards.
706626 tn?1229183562 Well when you said you didn't speak to a professional about it that would be the first step. Tactile hallucinations can occur from medication overdoses or interactions. But they can also be a sign of psychosis as in any other form of hallucations. Before recovery from schizoaffective disorder I had auditory hallucinations ("hearing voices"), visual hallucinations and tactile hallucinations. But there were other symptoms as well. Many. So it depends what else is going on.
Avatar n tn Yes but I am the first person to respond to it for positive symptoms (hallucinations, delusions etc.) and not just specifically negative symptoms (having trouble relating to people) and cognitive symptoms (difficulty understanding and processing information). However other NMDA receptor modulate antipsychotics in development have shown help on all symptoms of schizophrenia as well as a more favorable side effect profile. They will learn more about these medications as research progresses.
Avatar n tn nausea, stomach pain, low fever, loss of appetite, dark urine, clay-colored stools, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes); depression, confusion, hallucinations; or cold feeling in your hands and feet. Perhaps a return trip to the doctor is in order to discuss these symptoms.
2052200 tn?1332432684 A couple of days later I started to experience vivid hallucinations and was quite worried. It's been a few weeks now since the overdose and the hallucinations have got a lot better, but I still have a problem where sometimes my eye where if I look at something for too long it merges all together and sometimes my eyes just form random images or patterns - especially in the dark. I see a psychiatrist for depression but I am worried that I have done something to my brain and need some advice.
Avatar n tn Sometimes symptoms such as hallucinations show up when you start a med but it is just a coincidence, not caused by the drug. I have taken up to 120mg of Cymbalta and never had hallucinations and I have never heard of anyone having hallucinations caused by Cymbalta. I looked it up in a PDR and hallucinations are not mentioned, not even one case. You will probably need an antipsychotic for the hallucinations if you continue to have them even when off Cymbalta.
2052200 tn?1332432684 Thank you for your reply. The hallucinations haven't gone away and I have been having tactile and audio hallucinations too. I have found they are related to anxiety like you said. I'll hear/see/feel something, get anxious and paranoid, then I'll think I hear/see/feel something else when really I haven't if that makes sense. I think I should tell my counsellor next week. You never know, she could say its fine as they're not interfering with my normal everyday life!
1378381 tn?1444869615 I have been prown to the odd hallucinations, mostly shaddows and the like when i'm on the edge. But last night was the worst, I had bugs all over my bed and it really creeped me out. Atleast 3 attacks of it bearly a few minutes between. I tried to keep as calm as possible, and my partner was with me talking with me hugging me and reassuring me that it wasn't real but it was soo hard. Soo vivid and I was in soo much terror. I have never had such a vivid hallucination of these creatures.
Avatar n tn (Missed two or three doses and then took 1 1/2 doses to make up for it). Soon after, she got auditory hallucinations and sometimes couldn't even get herself to move from one place to another. I understand that in isolated cases, the hallucinations can occur. She was sent to a hospital, taken off Tegretol and was not on any other med. That was 12 days ago. There are still symptoms, but things are much improved.
2085202 tn?1373203340 Hated by God? You must have a different God than the one I'm familiar with. God doesn't hate people, and diseases aren't some kind of punishment. If you DID end up finding out you have a medical condition (which I really doubt), then you deal with it and move on. Disease aren't a way for God to kill people he wants dead. I think you know that, you're just not thinking logically. Your depression and anxiety is clouding your thinking. I'm glad you have an appt with your p-doc on Monday.
Avatar f tn Ahhh, yes, my mom has dementia and depression, she is on a anti- psychotic and anti depressants and many many other things. what is a SSRI re-uptake inhibitor?
Avatar f tn Hello, I'm 18 and I've been dealing with depression and anxiety for a while. I'm currently in an outpatient program and have been on a new medication, Wellbutrin, for about a month. On Wellbutrin I've noticed my anger/irritation has greatly increased, but I've experienced some improvements with my energy. I've also started my transition back to school from this program, and I've been really stressed. This last week has been particularly bad.
12268405 tn?1427856961 However, I do know people with major depression and situational depression who had episodes of visual hallucination. The hallucinations were short lived as well as their depression, meaning it only lasted for a year or 2. They didn't get hospitalized, because they were still able to function and their hallucinations did not affect their functioning so much. When I have gone through hallucinations and know when others are going through it, I never questioned them.
Avatar n tn my 10 year old son is suffering signs of depression such as low self esteem, lacking in confidence, angry, aggressive, aggitated, very emotional, self worth, unwanted, unloved, wishes he was dead, most worrying that he is now experiencing evil hallucinations and the sounds of screaming in his head since the last 2 weeks, the other symptoms have been on & off through out the age of 4-5 years old since he got bullied, i tried to get him help just over a year ago through school and our GP but h
Avatar n tn He says he's had this problem since he was a child. He only does this at night not when he naps and he has no other symptoms or problems. I'm about to go crazy because this effects my sleep as well as you can imagine. It's hard for me to reason with him at night when he's seeing something because to him it's as real as anything else HELP please! I know this is not normal.
Avatar m tn So I googled my symptoms and it came up with Sleep Paralysis and mine happens just before I fall asleep, when it occurs it continues to do so all night, this completely leaves my sleepless and even sometimes 3 nights in a row! Now I am only 15 years old and this is ruining my life. Also separate from the paralysis, whenever I am in a dark room (doesn't have to be to pitch black) I hallucinate, I see eyes and faces, sometimes a group of people or buses (anything random really).
11352669 tn?1417490101 I have very dilated pupils and sometimes there are weird stuff that goes across my vision so it is bad? help and recommendations? what is it? here are the explanations; first off, I'm french so sorry if I make spelling or grammar errors :) My pupils are really often dilated to the point people notice it and even sometimes ask me if I took any drugs (it is a common side effect of drugs and psychoactive substances), which is by the way not the case.
Avatar m tn Now, my son has suffered from anxiety, depression, psychotic episodes and hallucinations. Although we did not believe he was on anything else, we drug tested him on all types of controlled substances and all tests were negative. His derm placed him on Lexapro and 1/2 dosage of Accutane and two weeks later his symptoms returned. He was then told to discontinue treatment. This was 1 year ago or march 2014. We are now April 2015 and he is still seeing a psychiatrist.
Avatar m tn I am writing to ask if anyone else has had these symptoms while detoxing from these types of medicines. I am very scared for her and I can only see her for two hours a day (supervised). Please tell me (if you did have these symptoms how long it took before they went away. She's very paranoid and she believes everyone is watching her. The voices are very mean, they judge her and and make fun of her. She isn't convince that the voices arent real yet.
Avatar n tn Depression may also have psychotic features if this icludes hallucinations or delusions (false beliefs) Depression may also have catatonic features if symptoms include bizarre posturing, or echolalia (repeating the words by the person speaking to him).
Avatar f tn Rapid recovery from major depression using magnesium treatment. Major depression is a mood disorder characterized by a sense of inadequacy, despondency, decreased activity, pessimism, anhedonia and sadness where these symptoms severely disrupt and adversely affect the person's life, sometimes to such an extent that suicide is attempted or results. Antidepressant drugs are not always effective and some have been accused of causing an increased number of suicides particularly in young people.
Avatar n tn Schizoaffective disorder is characterized by symptoms of schizophrenia (such as hallucinations and delusions) occurring concurrently with symptoms of depression or mania; during the same period of illness, delusions or hallucinations must occur for at least 2 weeks in the absence of prominent symptoms of depression or mania. Delusions are false beliefs, out of keeping with a person's cultural and intellectual background, that cannot be corrected by reasoning.
5864500 tn?1380893197 There are different kinds of depression, but I think what you're talking about is clinical or chronic depression. Unfortunately. most people diagnosed with clinical depression are kind of stuck with it. That doesn't mean it cannot be managed and treated however. Like you said, it's kind of like diabetes or hypertension...it's something you'll always have, but it can be controlled, and there will be periods where it's a non-issue and other times when it's a big issue.
Avatar f tn Hence, please take the drug as prescribed and consult your doctor regarding your symptoms and wish to stop the medication. If symptoms do not subside after restarting medication, then please consult your doctor immediately. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history.
Avatar n tn Memory loss and disruption in the visual and auditory process (other than the standard visual and auditory hallucinations of psychosis) don't sound psychiatric. Illogical thinking does. And other symptoms you described did sound like depression. That's not to say you don't have depression as well but there may be something in addition. I couldn't really say but I would suggest you speak to your psychiatrist and ask for a referral to a neurologist and of course a general physician.
