Frequent Hallucinations, Feeling Of Floating And The Body Moving On Its Own When Lack Of Sleep?
Why is it that every time I lack sleep, I often hallucinate, my head floats every way, is sleeping or standing like my own body movement? even though in plain view it is not
Thank you Risda for your question on the HealthReplies.com forum, hallucinations are a condition in which a sensation is created by a person's mind without a real source. Where these hallucinations usually have several types such as:
- auditory hallucinations, where you hear voices that other people don't hear
- visual hallucinations, seeing things that are actually not visible
- olfactory hallucinations, smell something that is not there
- tactile hallucinations, such as someone touching but not there
- taste hallucinations, feeling like there is a taste in the mouth that is not there
This hallucinatory condition can be caused by several conditions such as:
- sleep disorders, such as narcolepsy
- head injury
- electrolyte disturbances
- drug side effects
- mental disorders
- neurological diseases such as stroke, Parkinson's, etc.
Sleep disturbance in some people can indeed cause hallucination symptoms, where this condition is related to several mechanisms such as a build-up of a product called adenosine. This adenosine buildup is thought to cause a hallucinatory condition. In addition, lack of sleep is also often associated with dizziness. Therefore, in such conditions you should be able to adjust the sleep patterns you are experiencing at this time. However, if the situation does not improve, it is better if this can be checked with the relevant doctor so that an examination can be carried out to find out the underlying cause of the symptoms that you are experiencing at this time.
