I didn't know where else to post this, but I figured maybe someone here had experienced something similar.
Last night I woke up at 3 am, and my brain was going nuts. If you have ever seen those EKG brainscan things where they light up with different
colours.... well my whole brain felt like it was lit up. Like I was hyperactive or something. I was thinking non-stop and it was like a mental
overload, like I was on the edge of having a breakdown. The craziest thing is that in my head I had 2 voices, where I normally have one. It's
important to distinguish that it was MY voice still, I'm not "hearing voices" or having demons telling me to do stuff. It's like the voice that
everyone has in their head how you hear yourself when you are thinking, except that I had two now, and they were both going at the same time. I went
to the bathroom and got a drink of water from the sink, and my brain seemed to settle a bit. But when I laid down again, it started going super-active
again. When I tried to close my eyes, it was really bad. It was like a collage of split-screens, 6 different dreams/"visual thoughts" all happening
at once. I tried to focus my mind and just think about one thing to try to get back to sleep, but I couldn't.
Oh, this entire time I was also shaking uncontrollably. I think I was just shivering, but it felt like convulsions, like I had developed Parkinsons
suddenly or something. I put on a hoodie and pants to try and warm up but it still went on for a little bit, but finally it stopped. I rolled over the
other way on my bed and managed to calm my mind down a little bit. The racing mind and the shivering both stopped, and I finally got relaxed enough to
start going back to sleep. It was 4 am, it had been an hour.
I kind of felt like how you see people portrayed in cartoons when they have WAY too much coffee, like I had taken a massive amount of some stimulant
or I had been poisoned or something. But I hadn't eaten or done anything out of the ordinary last night before I went to bed. So I'm stumped as to
what is going on. This is the first time it has happened.
If it happens again I'm going to the doctor, but I am just wondering if what I experienced has any kind of name or catagory.
