When déjà vu becomes unbearable

Many of us have experienced déjà vu—that tingly, yet unsettling feeling that we are going through something we’ve experienced before, even though we haven’t.
But for some of us, it becomes pathological.
One man had it so badly that he stopped watching TV because everything seemed to be a repeat, even the news, recalls psychologist Chris Moulin of the University of Leeds, U.K.
Yet when Moulin offered to help him, he adds, it was futile at first. The man “said there was no point visiting the clinic because he’d already been there.”
Déjà vu, which is French for “already seen,” is usually so fleeting that psychologists have until recently thought it impossible to study, Moulin said.
But for some people, the feeling of having been there before is persistent. Moulin and other researchers at the university are working with such people on what they say is the world’s first study of “chronic déjà vu.”...continues world-science.net

Yes I seem to have deja vu every day...a tingling sensation around my head, neck area that sometimes spreads to the rest of my body. As if some part of me recognizes the occurence whether it be an event or place, idea etc that hits me smack in the face and says WAKE UP. I think it may be due to the fact that we're in a dream world (don't take this too literally) and this is part of our subconscious reminding us there is something else besides this life, perhaps.

Its a shock to the system to have a conversation, be at a certain place and have already seen it

Deja vu is a mild momentary seizure occuring in the part of the temporal lobe involved with processing memory (call it a 'short circuit').
Epileptics often get a strong feeling of Deja vu moments before an epileptic seizure.
IMO if you experience Deja vu often I'd worry about your health rather than the weak possibility of being psychic.

ok theres Deja Vou and then theres my problem. Having dreams of my own future from my POV. These dreams show Exactly what im doing and where i do it before i have done it. Then once i get to that point in my life where the dream is coming true my brain starts to tingle and hurt kinda. not like a headache but like the brain itself. You have no idea how this has changed my view of life to that of the Matrix.
