Hey guys, I have a very peculiar sensation that seems to take over every once in a while. Nobody has helped me figure it out, I guess I was hoping someone would have a theory. It typically happens when im very emotionally spiked, it’s a kind of shaking sensation that makes my vision rock back and forth. My physical body doesn’t react to it but i get a rush everywhere throughout my… Everything. I lose the ability to focus. I find all i can do is acknowledge I’m in this crazy state.
Sounds like a manic/disassociative mental state to be honest, especially if it’s happening while under intensive emotional pressure.
I think your just going through a kundalini awakening
I’m not a medical professional but I have to agree the manic mental state what it sounds like. Best to look into professional help for strategies to avoid getting to that point
That could be the after effects of the adrenaline rush triggered by the stressful situation. Adrenaline is known for causing changes in vision while it courses through the body and stays active for about an hour. The sense of feeling brand new might have been the endorphin that is also released when adrenaline does. It is a similiar biological response that people who enjoy roller coasters go through
Thanks I appreciate your time and opinion!
No problem at all
Yeah, i am just going to second what @C.Wilson said. I’m not a professional but it sounds completely psychological/physiological. If it starts interfering with your life I would seek professional help just to be safe.
@Lost_in_The_Cosmos - that would be the dissociative part, I believe. You’re describing it almost perfectly.
So it’s pretty much a coping mechanism? That my subconscious jump-starts as a failsafe?
While I did graduate with a degree in psychology, I am in no way licensed. But yes, it seems more like a coping/protective mechanism that your consciousness pulls away from the more primal responses kicking in, triggered by a stressful event. It’s like when someone says they’re blacking out, going into a blind rage, that sort of thing. Your conscious self, your ego, takes a back seat while the more primitive part of the brain (including spinal column!) takes over. It’s why some people don’t remember the last few seconds before a crash, or sometimes don’t remember a stressful incident when they were young. It’s to protect you so you “keep going on”.
The tingling sensation is something a lot of patients describe, the heat, the overactive sensations… and then when it’s over, it’s like a cathartic release. You feel reborn almost, like a different, peaceful person. That, too, is by design. The body is a wonderful machine.
@narcissa appreciate it!!
No problem! It’s not necessarily a bad thing - just we all handle stress differently. I get like that too, especially when embarrassed.
According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) of the American Psychiatric Association, professionals establish criteria to assess the symptoms of each patient. Because of its findings, you have body dysmorphic disorder or trichotillomania. In other words in English to understand your picture is dissociative causing impulse control disorder respectively.
This is due to the presence of an obsessive thinking (specifically with a body area) and the presence of a specific compulsion in the presence of anxiety is why when you enter a relax or rest when restarting again in your faculties absence of the manifestation he presented.
Studying your case, all the odds indicate a north: this type of psychopathology is due to posttraumatic stress disorder, which is especially common in people who have lived through conflicts in an area or several areas of their life that have marked and not exceeded. Seek promptly specialized help, a hug!
@Amirash I looked up body dysmorphic disorder and trichotillomania. They don’t sound like what I’m dealing with. I do appreciate you taking the time to reply
As a medical specialist, the patient with disorders never arrives to observe his diagnosis in the professional’s knowledge, seek a non-subjective medical endorsement of his opinion
