Hi Lola, you are 13 and I am 51. Without thinking that i was so different i have lived my life coping one way or the other with my shortcomings, and funny in some other areas i have seen that it was easier form me to deal with than for others.

i almost dare to say that we compensate our shortcomings with other gifts, talents.

you are not alone, there are so many like us, and in societies where overachievement and continuous pressure is praised, new symptoms come to light.

when i am under stress, it is amazing the kind and amount of things that happen within me....but there are also other times when i am strong....when i am one.
i wish you luck and be not afraid to listen but also to question and to seek for your own answers.

The same thing happens to me! I'be tried explaining it to my mom as that feeling you get when you hold your breath for a long time and voices with that feeling (I think I was looking for "panicking" this whole time)
She thought that it might be because I have low blood pressure and I really aren't getting enough oxygen. The episodes happen when I'm alone and it is quiet, so logically it kind of makes sense, but it doesn't feel like I'm light headed.
It's just some food for thought. I'm still looking for an answer myself, but I'm glad I'm not alone.

hi perpendicular,
I have always had low pressure issues and the lack of oxygen to the brain is a common issue in my case. the feeling is confusion when low pressure is at hand. when my thoughts are loud and panicky is exactly the opposite. it is like this energy ...read frustration...has been accumulating within me, without me registering it. so by the time the light goes red because of amount accumulated plus exhaustion....then my thoughts do not talk but scream, without me being aware of the temperature change within me.....it is like an oven, that does not register its warmth changes, until is about to explote, then you realize that something has been going wrong for a while without noticing.

one of those gaps, between body and mind communication. more or less this is my theory.

Hi

I know this post is very old but I HAD to comment immediately (I have just made an account) as what you are describing is something I have been experiencing for as long as I can remember. The comparison to holding your breath and the feeling that comes with it is so accurate. Everything just becomes so loud and overwhelming. I have experienced panic attacks in the past but it is a very different feeling, especially because I am not panicked.

It's an incredibly grating, heavy feeling that comes from nowhere. Likewise with many of you, I could be doing everyday things and it just happens. Sometimes I am shaky, although I think it's because I am confused as to what's happening. It's such a weird thing, everything becomes so loud and so quiet.

One thing no one has mentioned, that always occurs to me when I experience this feeling, is that my actions seem sped up. Everything seems to be going at a faster pace which clashes with my loud, heavy thoughts. Also, for the last few occurrences, I seem to experience a "comedown" feeling where my head begins to hurt and I find myself clenching my jaw.

I am a female in my teens and I don't suffer from any medical/physical conditions. I have experienced some mental...issues...in the past which I have never really discussed. Although, I do think this feeling is completely unrelated. Is this feeling nothing or should I be concerned? It doesn't happen often, around once a month, but when it does it leaves me confused and drained.
Any help would be greatly appreciated! (I don't know how this site works)

I just had to make an account to reply to this because its exactly what happens when I experience one of these episodes. I feel hyper-aware of my actions and what I look like because it feels as if I'm obviously freaking out and doing everything in really jerky, sped-up motions.

Along with the shouting voice inside my head the voices around me tend to get distorted too. As people mentioned above I try to speak out loud or turn music // the television on to distract myself but the voices of the people sound as panicked as the voice inside my head.

OMG I just made an account just to do this post, I have the exact same problem! I have not found anything yet in my own country about it, so this is a huge relief! I have no advice, just that you are not alone!

I am not sure if what I experience is the same thing but it does sound so very similar that I think it might be. It is a bit of a relief to read about other people experiencing something like I do, and somewhat comforting that no one has pinned down what is happening. It's strange that that is comforting but it is. I found it really scary to search for things like 'voices in my head'.

The thing is I feel like I can only describe them as voices. It's a state of mind that seems to have these 'voices' attached, but it seems like they are not mine or in my own voice. I always feel like there is a woman and they try to 'say' the same things every time. It's a feeling and I try to make sense of what is being 'said', but it's never clear. It's just like a nonsense script. Mostly a female but sometimes a male 'impression', too. It's so hard to describe.

The thoughts race through my head. It comes at a speed faster than my normal thought process. And it feels panicky, even though I can be completely calm. It always happens when I am alone, too. It's like a rush of blood to the head. It lasts for a few minutes, typically, and then subsides.

The first time I experienced it was in recurring dreams I would have as a child. I never experienced it in waking life until I was 16, on the day I had a terrible car accident that changed my life completely. It happened hours before the accident. I recognized it immediately as being the same sensation as what I had in my dreams, because the dreams stood out to me when I was little, and still do to this day.

I am 29 now, and this sensation is happening more frequently now. After that one time when I was 16, I didn't have them for years. I was dealing with other mental health issues, such as depression and addiction to cannabis (which I think is related to being on a morphine drip while I was hospitalized after my accident). Perhaps, that helped with the issue, because they only started coming back to me once I beat my addiction. Now, it is happening a couple times a week.

I found it interesting that someone talked about blood pressure. I was recently put on a blood pressure medication by a dermatologist. I am not great at taking it every day. I feel like it could also be related to being on the medication or not taking it. However, I haven't been documenting the incidents so can't really say there is a correlation. Today, it came on pretty strongly, and thus began my google search that brought me here. I didn't take the medication today. I think I will start to keep a journal of when it occurs and the circumstances of the situation. It's always been a wonder to me, but I never found them to be that serious. It's just slightly off-putting.

hi, I stopped posting a couple of years ago, but today I had an urge to come back and I read your post. I am going again through one of those periods. it is evident that stress and anxiety have a lot to do with it, in my case. my dreams move around my fears but also around my physical reactions, for example, my heart is really fast and It feels like it is shaking...so I dream with this little dog that I take in my arms and is shaking.....
it is pretty upsetting, but for example I know that a travel that one of my kids will do can be dangerous....on one side I want to be there for her, but mentally and physically the price is very high for me...so I told her, I do not want to talk about your trip at nights because I sleep terribly,
so we will talk during the day and at night I will do something relaxing.
I really want to survive these difficult times, I can not get sick or drink medicine everytime that one of my kids is trying to move beyond their confort zone.

my sleep is suffering greatly and this is the mother of all problems...
good luck to you too.
