I wasn't sure where to post this. This isn't relating to headaches but more to my brain I think. Ever since I was a little girl (I'm now in my 20's), I have had these episodes where my perception of the world would suddenly change. I don't know if i am going to describe this well. Everything I could hear would suddenly be louder, and very fast. And everything I could see and all of my movements would look and feel very fast. I would ask my family if I was talking/moving slowly because I tried to, and they would say that I was moving slowly. But I would still perceive it as though I was sprinting as fast as I could. Also, everything around me would appear as though it was all 20 feet away despite being right in front of my face.
Also when this starts I can feel it happening. As if I'm slipping into it.
This happened a lot at night before bed. Now it does't happen too often and I can sort of control it. But I have NO idea what it could be. I did suffer from depression and anxiety attacks for years but my panic attacks were not like this.
Does anyone else experience this? Know what could be happening? I used to think it was common...now I know it isn't. haha
