Discovered that what I thought was me imagining things was actually really light from a neighbours. Lol. Thought I was going mad lol
How many doctors have you consulted about the hallucinations? Is it hard to get an appointment there?

You're not going mad. If you're posting in this place...you're already there. :lol:

:lol:

Several. I am sensitive. And vivid imagination.

It turned out the light wasn't a hallucination lol. I moved the rooms around so was in a different room and the curtains were shut but they were different curtains too and the light had shown through a gap. Noticed the next night when the curtains were open. I do hallucinate at night though. Only around sleep.

Have a neurology telephone appointment on Wednesday. I have a feeling it's going to be difficult. When she was calling to give the appointment she said everything back to front.

I'll just write everything down and hopefully I can speak clearly.
Mrs. spy, with AU in her name is going back on Wellbutrin, also known as Bupropion to help with sleep and stuff. Prescribed drugs may help you likewise achieve better living via dynamic chemistry. :lol:

Have you done any serious sleep studies? Wonder if your sleep cycle is messed up? Like if you are going back and forth between stages and never enter a deep sleep phase?

If I’ve mentioned this before, remember I’m getting old. One I time, stood up on the bed and took a lightbulb out of a ceiling fixture during my sleep. I dreamed I was up on a ladder taking the light bulb out. When I woke up the next morning the light bulb was on the floor by the nightstand. That meant I had stood up on the end of the bed and taken it out because there was no ladder inside the house. I was about 17 or 18 years old. It was one of those bulbs like from the 70s that was about 8” in diameter.

That would freak me out. Because that means you could do things you don't know you are doing. I've been sleeping fine this week. Did have one episode of the full body tingling airplane noise thing a week ago. Received a letter about the neck MRI. Not sure if I shared already. It showed wear and tear, some irritation/bulging and mild nerve damage. Suggested a neuropathic medication which I doubt I'll take. Interestingly I don't have neck pain often so it's strange that my neck shows anything. Makes me wonder what my lower back looks like.

Just had that strange thing. It seems to have adapted over time. Kind of felt like I was going to die this time but just focussed on my breathing.

So three times I had the blast. Usually I feel like I'm being sucked in but I think I was already in a sleepy state. I was praying but drifting. I first felt the strange feeling in my chest like kind of like an electric shock (I've felt this the last few times) but it is getting stronger. I'm pretty sure this time and last time my right leg is shaking below my knee. And it's like pressure in my ears and head like I can hear the blood really fast and really loud. And I just have to wait it out. No hallucinations this time. It kind of just stopped half way through the 3rd time which is unusual. Usually it kind of winds down. And then I was alert but just not ready to move. I had an energy drink earlier. Also Chinese food so feeling a bit saltified. In a flare up the past few days so have a lot of pain and also had a nap today where after about half an hour I was abruptly awoken from a deep sleep by the phone ringing which gave me a headache. So I wondered if it was from oversleeping last time but I know I haven't slept enough the past few days. So that's ruled out too. I do think energy drinks might have an involvement.

Had a mild experience similar to these experiences last night. No energy drinks though.

I was definitely asleep and I was dreaming that this was happening and I couldn't get out of it in my dream. Then the wave was starting to come but didn't come completely.

I completely quit caffeine, except for an occasional soda. Now I blend decaffeinated coffee with https://www.walmart.com/ip/Bean-Envy-MC ... /502043560 and extra creamy oat milk.

This has greatly decreased painful headaches. :)

Probably a good idea. I did drink more cola than usual yesterday and I had wine the evening before yesterday.
