23 yr old male
For years, ever since I was younger, I would periodically incur episodes where I would have an intense feeling of Deja Vu, usually triggered by something I hear someone say or something I read. And most often I feel like I heard these words spoken in my dreams I have had in the past, but I couldn't remember because you dream in short term memory. But all of a sudden these "memories" of the dream resurface and I get nausea, dizziness and confused. And then as soon as the episode is over (about 30 seconds), I forget all about the dream again and I can't remember any of it....
Now this doesn't happen to me often. At most it happens like twice per year, lasting usually 1 to 3 days. During the days that I am having these episodes it seems to happen roughly 5 - 10 times during the day.

(I'm currently on day 2 of this happening to me)
I don't have seizures, I don't do any drugs. I've been pretty tired the last couple of days, but I have been sleeping alright. No other known medical issues.

Any ideas? I think it might be a supernatural psychic ability that I just can't harness (joking)

  • Deja vu times a million?? Glad to know it's not just me. I have been having these episodes since age 5, at least as far back as I can remember. As a child, these episodes would render me useless for the duration of the day: extreme headache, nausea, and fatigue. As a kid, I would refer to them as "brain quakes", for lack of a better term. I am now 31 and they still occur. Sometimes they can happen twice in a week, sometimes I can go years without a single episode. I'm not sure what triggers this intense deja vu. Usually a thought, or something I hear, be it on tv or a person I'm talking with. Then other random thoughts or words will flood my head and pile on to the intensity. (For example: the words "Roasted Pepper" or "Flip-flops" mean nothing now, but during an episode it might double the intensity. Everything I see or hear intensifies it. Weird, but does that make sense to anyone? ONLY an example, because I can never remember the intensifying words after an episode.) A few times I've been teased by it, thinking "Oh, boy here it comes..." and then it stops before it reaches full intensity. (After one of those taunts, I can guarantee one is coming full-strength within the next day or two.) When it does happen full-on, I strangely find myself "encouraging" it, because there is something intriguing about it. The difference between episodes now, as opposed to when I was younger, is today the headache, nausea, and fatigue are gone. I recover rather quickly, and recently its become nothing more than a minor distraction, but if it's epilepsy, I don't want it to ruin my life someday. Do my "intensifying words" description ring any bells?

  • Hi there, I am just starting the medical process of finding out what these extreme deja vu's signify...as well as their accompanying sypmtoms of zoning out, leaning to the left, confusion, auditory paralysis etc.There is some talk of brain tumors, or cortisol overload, or infection in the brain. But its all brain related and all seems to be serious. I would take yourself seriously and talk to a dr about getting a CT scan (I'm getting one on Monday) as well as an EEG, and possibly an MRI (if my CT comes back negative, I'm going to get a private MRI).You may be having partial complex seizures, which could maybe lead to a grand mal? Wh o knows? But I don't want to you to have to find out.Deja vu times a million?? Glad to know it's not just me. I have been having these episodes since age 5, at least as far back as I can remember.

  • Thank you all so much for your post...I have been having the exact same episodes for about three years now and im 20 years old.I have recently become very paranoid due to the lack of info I suspected they were seizures.I have the extreme sense of Deja Vu that can last 30 sec to a minute,and an intense body high that rushes to my head, followed by nausea and fatigue. I usually feel wiped after an episode. Ive also noticed that after I experience one I usually experience several more throughout the day. Then nothing for a while. (a reduced threshold)Thank you all so much !!!!

  • I have experienced something like that 4 times now incl. today. It always starts with that I wake up several times at night and feel disorientate, funny, warm, memory difficulties, fatigue, have div. hallucinations, this continues throughout the day, the seizures last for a few seconds and they are at a full day. 2 of the times I've had these hallucinations I've gone into convulsions during the day, (maybe due to dehydration, salt Ballance, plus metabolism or hyperventalering), I get warm in the body, get krilder in the stomach, sinking all the time. It's always the same dream that I dreamed about the night and I think when I get the seizures during the day, I can not remember what I felt and think before and after the seizures, but seizures feels it all as I thinking about the dream I dreamed at night, while I will disorientate can not make pictures in my head about how it looks outside, can not remember so well names, words, etc, I am quite warm in the stomach, the spin and sources uncomfortable, otherwise serve me best, I know it is not true, I know it's something I have dreamed, and I can do other things while I've tried to write down what I think and feel when I get hit by the attacks: "Collect call", "call the police", "inspector gadget", "baby", "phone" "mobile", "wolf", "obstacle course", "poisonous animals such as. Snails", "laundry", "cycling "" ridde on animals "(I see these things for me and it feels natural, but I still know it's a dream I think, I just can not get the feeling away. Everything is so confusing in my head as if I dreamed, but it is only thoughts, I know all the time it is not genuine, it all feels like a dream dejavuu while I get a strong taste and smell in the nose, and becomes quite warm in the body) My body is quite hot while it's like when you consider what you have dreamed of the night, but you just get overrumlet with it and you can not find head or tail of it, I know that what I feel and think is a dream, it's like a dejavuu, but I know it is not genuine. I could provoke seizures, I feel (so during the day where I get the seizures) and I can write down what I think of when I think of it, but afterwards I can not remember why I thought of exactly the things it makes sense while, but not afterwards. I am afraid when the seizures are rapid succession, because I am afraid that I go into convulsions. It's like that every time I try to remember something or think of something specific, then mi brain taken over by this state of mind when I think of what I have dreamed, and it feels very close and meaningful in a few seconds, until I come all the way to myself and thinking what the ***l it was, but I am always conscious. It feels very logical at the moment the attack is on but afterwards, it's just black for me that I have felt and thought so, just until the next attack. I also have these attacks at night. I have checked both EEG, MRI and CT sanning everything was normal. I do not know what to do, already suffering from anxiety, migraine with aura and ADHD. Takes no medications nor birth-control pill. ps. Have now had these seizures for 2 days, really scared

  • Hi Kato, Most b12 is not effective. Cycbl and Hycbl can actually make deficiency things worse. Only a few brands of methylb12 sublinguals work effectively. Then it must also be taken with cofactors or it may not work well or at all if missing Metafolin and b-complex for instance. Also, during startup mb12 that is effective can cause an intensification of symptoms during starttup of early phases of healing. Hi FreddI am new to working this wrong diagnosis. I am having a hard time with the medical community believing me that I have a b12 defieincy. I think I had a B12 crash in late March with headache dizziness numb arms walking unsteadily blurry vision etc etc. Right away I started supplementing with Jarrows b12. the headache dizziness blurry vision have subsided. Now I can not get the medical community to believe me. What can I do ? I still suffer from fatigue and trembling fingers. From what I have read, it says the you should have injections to resolve the symptons. But I doubt I will be able to get them now. Any suggestions ? Does oral help ? How many b12's should I have a day to equal an injections ?

  • I have just read through all of these posts. I found it very interesting looking at Freddd's list of B vitamin defiency. I can tick off a fair few of them. I think I'll investigate this avenue. It may solve other issues as well, which would be a very good thing. Taking the B's sounds complicated. Do it right. Hope I know how. Bewilderd yet again The above post, by me, was actually meant to go with another thread about exercise fatigue, nothing to do with dreams. I don't know how that happened. Bewildered

  • Hi, I am a 57 year old male and I have had hese numerous times over the years, although not within the past year. I get the deja vu, that feels like I am remembering a scenario from a dream from the past. During this deja vu, it feels very familiar like I have had this dream multiple times and am at that moment recalling or remembering it. I cant recall any plot or specifics, but it has the feel of a conflict or bad situation. Like others, I am curiously drawn into it as it is fascinating, however the deeper I let myself go, the more likely I am to lose consciousness. I get the feeling like low blood sugar (light headed, dizzy, cold sweat) and my fierld of vision narrows. Either I take a deep breath and shake it off, or I follow it and when my field of vision narrows completely, I pass out. Several times I have felt it coming and gotten down on the floor. Several days I have felt tinges of this sensation, and on these days I am more prone to one of these coming on. Fatigue, lack of sleep and dehydration definitely make me more prone. I rarely drink brewed tea, but on at least occasions, the event has happened within an hour of drinking tea. Perhaps the diuretic effect of tea causes greater dehydration. Two times when someone was nearby when I passed out, they said that I experienced, involuntary shaking/twitching that looked very freaky. I have gotten the weird seizure feeling that they warn about after playing Nintendo N64. Never had a problem with strobes or elevators. I am certain that this is a seizure type event, I just do not know the full cause.

I'm 20 and my "deja vu" started when I was 12. At the time Id get audibe halu..sinations(?) with it. But that probably lasted a year and sounded like mumbling...Ever since I'd get the deja vu sensations for about 30 sec. Same as you guys have described, freaky feeling, consuming, followed by fatigue for the rest of the day I guess. I get this about once a month. Mine don't happen multiple times for days like some on here have said. Just one a month it seems. Since doing some research I've found its rare but still out there.. Patial, complex, frontal lobe seizures. People who have gotten tested have never found tumors or anything serious. It varies with everyone,theres different types of feeling like deja vu, or suddenly feeling they dont know where they are or feeling they recognize everyone when they really dont know anyone... Weird stuff.. Apparently the seizure tells the brain to want the seizure during the episode or "aura". Stupid name, sounds hippyish, but whatever. It is a cool, out of body feeling. I just like doing some research and recording everything im feeling when i get one, what triggered it, how long it lasted, what followed. What i felt on my body. Usually nausea and pressure on my head... Idk, its interesting...
