Fly in my brain

There was a fly which was flying about in my bedroom, i got the thought that the fly would go in my ear and lay babies near my brain. Ever since that thought i've been hearing fly buzzing noises when there arn't any flys around and think maybe it did go in my ear. The noises are really loud near my ear and it scares me thinking it might make me go deaf. Any advice will be most welcome.

Hey Ffleaderman

I think a lot of us get this. It sometimes feels like a thought has run away with us. Try laughing at yourself, I am not being facetious, I mean it. Humour can work often when other things don't work. When I was a child I heard about earwigs, and really believed they went into the ear. Its magical thinking and we all get moments when we revert to this. I know I do, and the only thing is to not give it too much time and laugh at yourself. I hope you get where I am coming from. Take care xxx

Have you tried pouring water in your ear? If there's anything in there it should flush it out - or drown it.... if you still hear it tomorrow you could go to the doc and get them to check?

i've had a fly trapped in my Crash helmet, and it's deafeningly loud

Our ears are full of wax to trap such bugs - dont' worry...

Just to say, flies cannot get into the brain, it is impossible. i am an ex nurse and can tell you the structures in you body would not be able to let this happen. Try logic and look at anatomy to prove it to yourself. xx

I do not hear voices, I came to the conclusion that they are my own thoughts, however the buzzing noises that I hear are not flies trapped inside my ears with ear wax nor could I rinse them out with hot water. I am not quite sure what they mean, why I can hear them or why they're getting louder but the lack of medication has brought about a lot of changes in me, I guess we'll just have to wait and see

:LOL: That moment of panic when a wasp or bee gets in to your bike helmet, screeched to a halt and torn off my motorbike helmet before now, to desperately get rid of the bug, even remember having a bumble bee in my mouth whilst riding down a country road in summer.:meanie:

tinnitus i get a lot may be connected to the illness maybe an effect of the drugs, i know having my ears syringed helps, now i go into the sauna to clear the wax, usually works

i'm always interested in stories of those who drive motorbikes on meds as i've passed mt cbt but am nervous, my gp when i asked about the test said i'd be reluctant to rule it out but you'd have more problems than most people, the cbt guy said do you want to put yourself through that stress and i admit it'd be difficult with the other stresssors i'm experiencing

I passed my CBT while on meds no problems, I've got a honda C90 which has three gears and the only problem I had is not enough practice beforehand so I was going up a steep him in 3rd gear so failed it the first time... I have found its given me back my freedom and I like exploring different places. But I'm worried it somehow could affect my benefits if they think I'm capable of riding a bike...

i've taken and passed 4 cbts on meds you have to retake it everey 2 yrs and the insurance is insisting now, it's the motorbike actual test i'm concerned about, i've only ridden automatics

I hear in some places if you've got a license your not entitled to a bus pass, some places you need a drs note saying you can't drive

As the cbt guy said a lot of people take it to do delivery jobs, i could be declared fit for work deliveriong pizzas i worry, if i was long hrs on meds driving would be a recipe for disaster
