My first post here, so hello everyone.
For the past few months, I have also been seeing various light and shadow anomalies. Now, something I should mention is that I 'do' have some
vitreous floaters which I can see when I look against bright backgrounds like the sky, when I see these dead cells, they are almost always static and
slightly out of my line of sight, what I'm getting at is that these don't move.
Now, recently over the last few months, I have started seeing shadows, large and small which dart in and out of peripheral vision, always disappearing
when I move my head to look, but they are definitely not static, they do move, these shadows have also been accompanied by, but not at the same times,
with bright orb type flashes, which will move about my person or nearby. The dark shadows seem to move around ground level and up to my waist, and
the orbs seemingly from my waist and above, never below. I also experience the 'hum' some others have spoken about, usually when I go to bed, almost
as if a low frequency from a computer harddrive, sometimes making it difficult to get to sleep.
I don't know if it's any relation also, but I experience ASMR, and curious about it, I searched online to find others who experienced similar
symptoms, only to find a wide community of people who did ( and found out it was named ASMR ), and who posted regular videos on youtube to 'trigger'
the ASMR response, so over the same period of time I have been watching a lot of trigger ASMR videos. The ASMR trigger videos, for those that don't
know, trigger an extreme feeling of pleasure and tingles at the back of the head / scalp / brain area, I can't define the exact feeling, except to say
it's extremely beautiful and not sexual in nature. My first experience was watching a friend draw a picture whilst I was in Nursery school, but I
couldn't replicate the feeling myself, only when I saw someone concentrating hard on something, like drawing ( I'm an Artist too ). Anyway, to get
back on topic, because of the plethora of trigger videos, and I'm watching them a lot, I'm wondering if it's also triggered a part of my mind, maybe
once dormant that is also causing the vision anomalies that I keep seeing. I regularly wake to think I have people in my room at night, I usually
feel like I have 1 person to the side of my bed watching me and 1 at the base, again, this is only a recent thing, and I stress, I only feel like I
have 2 people watching me as a I sleep, I have never seen anyone.
Loving the discussion, will be watching and reading with interest.
