hello doctor, I want to ask. Is it normal when we wake up and continue to hallucinate seeing strange things? yesterday afternoon I slept and woke up suddenly and hallucinated seeing strange things but only briefly. is that normal because consciousness is still imperfect or not?

1 Answer:

Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Although it is not a common thing, but in reality hallucinations when going to sleep and shortly after waking up is normal.


In psychology, hallucinations that occur just before going to sleep are called hypnagogic hallucinations, and those that occur shortly after awakening are called hypnapompic hallucinations. Both of these conditions are normal, and have no connection to a particular condition so you don't need to worry. This condition occurs simply because our condition is not yet fully conscious, so our minds are free from reality and what is not.


But if you begin to believe that hallucinations are true, their appearance is not only in those two moments, and it starts to disrupt everyday life, then it could be a sign of a certain mental illness. And for that, check yourself into a psychiatrist for further examination. But once again if only occasionally and only at these two moments, it is just a natural phenomenon that naturally occurs. So, hopefully answering your question.
