Over the past 2 years I've noticed a series of strange occurences to how I perceive things. I used to feel normal, but I don't feel normal anymore.

I don't know how to describe how I feel. I would equate it to being tired, but I'm not tired. I feel like I'm in a perpetual daze. I feel disconnected, like I'm floating away from my body. I'm concious, but it's as if my body is doing and thinking one thing but my mind is going "this is strange, this is not right".

I can recall experiences from my past with such vivid clarity, yet the past 2 years have passed in such a daze that I sometimes cannot remember things that just happened. I have to strain to remember these things, to the point where I wonder if they really happened.

Visually, I feel like I'm in a cloud. My eyes are heavy, I see clearly but my eyes feel like everything is blurry. I sometimes get the feeling that I'm seeing in tunnel vision.

Two years ago, my ears just started ringing. Just like that. I remember the moment exactly. Everything was clear, I got dizzy, and suddenly my ears started ringing and have no stopped since.

I don't know what to think. I don't feel normal, I know something is wrong with me. I don't know if it's medical, I don't know if it's paranormal, I just don't know what to think. Nobody pays attention, they say I'm just tired. I sleep 8-10 hours a day (which is also something I never used to do).

Ever since this started happening I've also noticed strange things. Sometimes, I see what I can only describe as an aura around certain people. This usually is with people of authority, like my boss. It almost looks like a transparent yellow light. It is uniform and surrounds the person completely. I don't get scared by it, yet I do find it strange.

I don't know, I just feel disconnected. I feel like my body and my spirit are no longer in synch. I'm not depressed, I'm quite happy in fact. But every once in a while I really start to think about this daze I've been in.

I'm posting this here because you people have alot more experience with this sort of thing. I have read these forums and found many interesting things. I'm hoping that perhaps my experiences are similar to something that one of you have experienced or at least learnt about. I'm really just looking for an answer.

I have never told my whole story to anyone.

its a shame that everyone does not have access to brain wave scanning to measure your brain state when you are in this sort of situation.

have you looked into different brain states. look on the internet about the different effects different brain states can have on you. most people do not know that things can be different than they should be.

First thing you REALLY need to do is rule out a medical problem. Go get yourself checked out... physically. Have your blood pressure moniterd and have yourself checked out for bloodclots etc. etc.

Then if you get a clean bill of health go consult with a psycologist a bit... make sure there isnt something going on with your mind that you might not be conciously aware of.

I have been checked out. I'm in good physical health, my blood pressure and everything is very good. I'm 21 years old and I excersize regularly.

I should also mention that the past 2 years have also brought on frequent .aches. Doctors have not found anything. MRIs are clean, bloodwork is clean, everything.

I don't do drugs, I do drink but not abusevly.

check here
www.brainsync.com...
www.toolsforwellness.com...

people spend there time in 4 brain states. verying from when you are asleep to fully awake. read the links and you will understand. if you spend to much time in the wrong brain state, your brain may have problems with memory, and basic living in the world things. you like live in a daze.
try vitamins also, but look into training your brain to the right brain state while you are awake.

last but not least, there is electromagnetic polution. this can have dramatic effects on a persons brain. look for it in google.

You have no idea how much this topic has helped me.

I thought I was the only one!!

I've been feeling so incredibly lethargic. It's been about 4 years of this I've been enduring. I've actually quite forgotten what it was like to not be like this. I went to the doctor and told them how I felt. After a couple blood/urine tests, the doctors said everything was fine for me. My blood count, nutrition, everything was perfect.

I was feeling very down possibly because of my condition of feeling like I was coated in wax, so I went to the psychiatrist and she diagnosed me with manic depression. And I'm still on medication, but it's not helping me!

I sleep all day and all night whenever I can and it bothers me so much! I just don't have any energy. I feel like I'm in a cage where all I want to do is sleep all day.

I still feel encased in wax right now. I see in "tunnel vision", my ears ring and nothing seems to WAKE ME UP!

Sorry, just wanted you to know you're not alone!!

I'm going to check out that "brain state" thing now.

I don't know but seems to me what you described is a psychological problem. My advice is that you go run as fast as you can till you're tired then go take a shower and go to sleep, and don't think too much.

It could be anxiety or maybe depersonalization, if you've heard about that. I hope you get replys to this topic because answers, especially more paranormal ones would be interesting.

hey how old are you? just curious. im 36. one thing that caught my eye was that your ears have been ringing. last week i noticed that around 4pm i could hear a really high pitched ringing in my ears...a high frequency to the point that my eardrums started really hurting. no idea what it is. its almost like the high pitched sound from the television but its not on. something may be going on but who knows.

my god. no bs, i know exactly what this is like. except the aura thing, i have this too. i just feel an intense disconnect from everything, like its happening on TV and im not really part of it. im in a sleepy groggy state, but my brain is totally alert, i find it hard to go to sleep because i am not actually tired, but when i go to sleep i can sleep for 10-12 hours, and still have the same off feeling the next day. and the ringing in the ears, ive had that for years.

Sounds like a few things.

Could a form of depression, or some sort of psychosis.

The ringing could be pointing to a certain part of the brain that is under pressure. Some mild strokes are given away by ringing in the ears.

Sometimes ringing in the ears (especially mixed with the 'aural' hallucinations) points to temporal lobe epilepsy. The 'authoritarian' auras could point to stress related to these figures. Stress can cause epileptic seizures.

I know, because I have it. I spent a few years feeling 'out of sync' with myself and then one day I just dropped.

All my tests STILL come back normal, but I'm being treated as epileptic.

Did you know that the hallucinations that epileptics have before a seizure are called 'auras'?

Keep an eye on yourself, constantly.

I've been watching this site for over a year, just reading because I had no knowledge of any of the posts. I'm happy to say I can finally help someone with an explination.

First off, I'm also 21, great physical shape and exercise regularly, like yourself. I suffer from everything you've stated in your origional post, and
I would have to say that it is pure anxiety. I am being treated for PTSD/Anxiety at a VA hospital for everything you've just explained.
My suggestion is this, you go to your local hospital and ask to see a Mental Health specialist, and explain your problem. If all goes as it did for me you will recieve instant help, and strategies to overcome all of these problems.

Give it sometime, I can improve right away, or as in my case it can take a few months. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me, I will help in anyway I can.

I'm no medical expert, to say nothing of the non-medical possibilities, but I think everyone would concur that there are numerous possible explanations and causes for what you've been experiencing. The best I can do is share my own experience, but I would suggest that you not adhere to any one person's input and instead form a body of working knowledge using everyone's advice and then try to discover what is going on in your case specifically. That said, I will share my own experience. It may or may not help.

I suffered from chronic respiratory tract infections, strange bouts of chronic inflammation, and seemingly random inflammatory episodes in different parts of my body, etc. In addition to these, however, even when I felt fine otherwise, I began to suffer lethargy, difficulty concentrating, a sense of my vision being "hazy" or out of focus despite being able to see relatively well, an excessive need to sleep, as well as ringing in the ears. I also suffered from visual disturbances akin to those you've described.

Known autoimmune and inflammatory disorders were ruled out (with the exception of some mild, amorphous - more so than usual, even - manifestation of sarcoidosis, which is an open question in the case of both I and my mother at present, it would seem,) and labs as well as vitals were relatively normal. Doctors tried to treat all of this as being related to "allergies," but could not identify triggers, or other effectively treat me with allergy medications.

Finally, after extensive research and further testing, it was found that my peripheral serotonin levels (and presumably, neurological serotonin levels,) were elevated beyond what they should have been. The cause and precise implications of this could only be conjectured about based on precedent and known relationships between that neurotransmitter and others, and its effects on cognition and immune function, but the working theory that emerged in my case after a while - and which was borne out by yet more subsequent tests - was that an elevated release of phospholipase A2 was antagonizing cortisol levels and causing autoimmune-like inflammation, and was at least one factor in my elevated serotonin levels which in turn caused further autoimmune-like inflammation (particularly in the presence of illness or other exacerbating factors,) and depressed my dopamine and norepinephrine levels, causing a sort of "reverse seasonal affective disorder." That made sense as well, since sunny weather seemed to bring on fatigue, sleepiness, and depression, whereas overcast and rainy weather produced the opposite effects.

While my doctor was mostly at a loss, we did agree on some steps I could take. I started limiting my consumption of foods containing archidonic acid - for instance, I limited my meat consumption to range-fed, boneless, skinless chicken breast - and I started taking SAM-e with Betaine, Choline, and Pantothenic acid supplements to maintain higher acetylcholine, reduced my consumption of vitamin-D (which might not be advisable of course, for skeletal and other important reasons,) and limited my exposure to sunlight. I also started taking an L-Tyrosine supplement, and taking moderate doses of licorice root to obtain glycyrrhizic acid during periods of illness.

To date, although I admit the possibility of a placebo effect (only because I wish to remain open minded,) these measures have significantly improved my symptoms, reduced the severity of acute illness, and made the duration of respiratory infections manageable (7-14 days instead of 21-49 days, as in the past.) They have also almost completely resolved the cognitive and visual disturbances I was experiencing.

You must be in a dream! THe best thing to do is to stay detached while being in harmony with people and your environment... and you'll be alright. No worries.

DazedDave,

Be mindful of what you eat. Sometimes food additives such as artificial flavorings and colors and preservatives can wreak havoc with your body's functions. Don't eat too much junk food, nor fast food, and make sure, as your mom probably always insisted, to eat your veggies. Actually, make sure you also eat PLENTY of fresh fruits such as oranges, apples, bananas, etc., and include fruit juices. Fruit will provide you with high energy and plenty of vitamins. It's a good idea to take some vitamin C supplements also. A couple of 500 milligram tablets of vitamin C every day will help to keep you fresh and healthy.

Well I have the extreme tiredness all the time, I used to exercise 6 times a week but now I don't do anything, I can sleep at any point in the day or night but can only sleep for a few hours.

I also have ringing in my ears (well more like a high pitch whine) but I think that's tinnitus from a few too many heavy metal concerts.


I don't have any weird feelings or see things so I think its a physical thing with me. Even though various doctors try things and keep sending me away for blood tests. Everything have come up negative for 7+ years.

I think yours is more mental if you're seeing things and feeling weird.

People! Please listen to Unrealised!
Next, and I mean this... stand in front of a mirror,and slap the hell out of yourself! Immediately.
This is what I worry about in these forums. The "crazy" factor.
Guys, there is nothing wrong with having interests in "Alternative" this, and "Alternative" that. But, never forget, or lose your hold on what "reality" is at this second. There is a lot that can be questioned in this world, but you first need to get a firm grasp on what is here. Then, you can look elsewhere.

The description given, by several of you, is indeed similar to depression, bipolar, and possibly schizophrenia. Get yourselves to a shrink! Immediately.

"Brain Scan"?! What are you talking about? As I have read in these forums before, THIS is why you people are not taken seriously.

Why not just rent "Napoleon Dynamite", find the scene where Uncle Rico and Napoleon try the Time Travel gizmo they made from plans on the internet, and you can duplicate THAT!

I'm sure it Scans Brains too!

Look, I don't mean to be cold, but you can't believe everything you read! That also means from Alternative sources. Have some common sense.

Don't play with this. Don't get diagnosed in HERE! Holy Crap!

If you can't tell the difference between reality and fantasy, you have no business being in here, or even following up with half the interests on this site. I am not kidding.

Do you want to end up sitting in your basement, with a foil hat, making flying saucers out of your own excrement, while the police search the neighborhood for you? No?

Then get to a doctor.
