Default Hallucinations

In curious what types of hallucinations other people get. What hallucinations do you have?

I'm curious about what is the most common too (tactile, auditory, visual, etc)

Default Re: Hallucinations

mine are auditory and seem to be more and more linked to mood episodes (my label/diagnosis from the psychiatrist is Bipolar I; my counselor leans towards Schizoaffective, manic type).

i also have obsessive traits, bordering on full on OCD...but I'm not fond of SSRI drugs or the tca drugs used for ocd, so...i try to deal, lol. supplements seem to help. anyway, my hallucinations and paranoia sometimes "loop," in typical ocd-fashion, so...that's loads of fun, lol.

thankfully, the psych drugs help a lot and the supplements do, too. psychosocial factors seem to be important for me (and I would think many other people, too), and those have improved in my life tremendously, thank goodness.

Hallucinations, I smell things that are not there, smoke from burning wood, electrical, chemical and what seems like burning rubber. I also hear whispering voices, mostly one on top of another. It is like a running commentary of what I am doing. Some of the other things they say are not appropriate for this forum.

I struggle with both auditory and visual hallucinations. I hear my family say things to me that when asked, they say they did not say. I hear doors open and close, footsteps, and many conversations being had all at once. As far as visual, I see the stars moving, shadows, and flashlights that are really just house lights. I am doing much better now on my AP meds. The hallucinations are very few now!

I get mostly visual too. Without my AP I get a lot of tactile hallucinations especially when its night time in my bed. Stress causes mine to be worse than normal so I try to keep that level low.

Before meds I got quite a few olfactory hallucinations...smelling rotting meat, skunks that weren't actually there. Also tasting things in my water.

Auditory...hearing voices like a radio running in the background.

Tactile...skin crawling, thought people had drugged me because of sensations in my body.

Visual... shadows, and my vision distorting, mostly.
