I have been told I am bipolar in the past years ago as I had many issues, never got treated and went on with my life (well atleast i thought i did) I have set up a apt. with a psyche doc however it isnt for 3 more weeks and not sure if i should go to an e.r. instead.

Current problems:

1)blurry vision
2)i usually sleep every other night instead of every night
3)I keep smelling a burnt smell, like a burnt electronic part or burnt matches
4)I no longer feel in my body, feel robotic and outside of self to the right observing myself every minute of the day
5) the biggie:I relived a moment right after the moment....I went into store and was looking at some items on the shelf and a girl came over near me and reached for something saying to her friend "yea they have one", well minutes later found what i needed walked away from that aisle and like 90 seconds later walked past that aisle coming from another direction and saw her doing the same exact thing saying the same was the same exact moment in time yet i was somewhere else in back of her instead of in that aisle, i hurried to see if I was in that aisle and by the time i got over there she was gone. in a nustshell this girl did the same exact thing, now i know this really did not happen so was/is this a type of deja vu delusion?

It was like in the matrix when neo saw the cat twice.....

I felt weird for like 10 minutes after that.

6) I also see a graininess texture to all space in between anything, i.e. air, i know it is not real but it is in front of me even as i write this, a very very very subtle graininess texture but it in all space between everything.

Is this bipolar, or have i progressed to something more serious, or could this be a medical emergency?

Hi Jon,

Welcome to HealingWell and to the bipolar board,

Well, I'm not a doctor, so my first advice would be to call your new doctor and ask to talk to him/her on the phone about an emergency. They will tell you whether or not to go to the er.

It does sound like you're entering a slight psychotic stage of mania with hallucinations and disassociation, so I wouldn't rule out going to the hospital. But getting meds soon will probably clear it up quick.

I hope this is helpful. Good luck,

Serafena is right. Call your PDoc even though your appt is not for 3 weeks. Maybe they can see you earlier or atleast advise you what to do. Mania gone untreated for a long time can start playing crazy tricks with your mind. I hope you get help soon. Hang On. We are all here to support and encourage you.

Good Luck
