Strange Deja Vu, followed by nausea, dizziness and confusion

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)

  • 25yr old male. I've had this problem for 12yrs and when I explain it to people they think I'm nuts! I still to this day haven't been able to find an answer why it happens. Mine happens about once every 4 months and lasts 1-3 days (normally 2). I've been to the doctor and they thought it was an ulcer but after running tests they found nothing... I've done a lot of research and have found no condition that matches all those symptoms.

  • I've been having this exact experience in stints since I was about 16 years old. I'm now 38. It may happen once or twice a year with experiences lasting about 30 seconds and may repeat about 10 times unexpectedly before going away for ages. I get sweats and nausea and almost black out. It's very scary. I only stumbled on this thread now as it's just happened again.

  • I have had this as well and it freaks me out. This is the first time I've read something that sounds exactly like what I experience. I don't have it over multiple days though. It only happens once and then won't happen for another 6 months. Its comforting to know I'm not the only was as I always feel crazy when I try to explain it to someone.

  • This happens to me as well, usually when I'm driving or in the shower and I am not well rested. It feels like I am remembering a dream and it's always the same memory. Once, it happened while I was sitting at my desk at work and I tried writing things down while it was happening but my notes didn't end up making any sense. They feel like panic attacks because my body tingles and I feel like I'm going to pass out. Almost like I have to focus so that I can finally snap out of it. Really odd.

  • I have it as well and I'm 52. Temporal lobe epilepsy is what I've read it is.

  • One guess is: you MAY (not definitive) have a temporal lobe disorder such a epilepsy. Best to see a neurologist soon, especially those whom also experience the physical signs such as nausea and passing out.

    8 Surprising Facts About Cholesterol

    Did you know that one in six US adults has high cholesterol?

  • One of the physicians I worked with for several years shared with me, "As much as medicine knows about the body and mind, there is much more we don't know. A sign of a good doctor is one who knows his limits and doesn't guess, he knows when to refer out or simply say, I don't know."

  • You should get a genetic testing done for Catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia.

    I exhibited the exact same symptoms, I was always told that I had frontal lobe seizures but no medicine I took worked. A sudden death in my family lead me to get this test done and my test came back positive. In severe cases CPTV can result in sudden death, so I highly suggest getting tested just to be sure.

  • I have had similar symptoms. It started when I would get light headed when getting up to fast. They did heart tests and all looked good. I noticed when I exercised I would feel nauseous, I noticed I was getting motion sick easier and more often. One night it got really bad, and didn't go away, so went into the E.R.. They did a cat scan, said it looked good. Kept asking me if the room was spinning, no it was not. Went for ENG they think one side isn't working its vertigo, maybe meniere's Disease
