I still get voices that disrupt my sleep. Once I wake up I don't hear anything. I get really vivid and strange dreams as well. I have went for professional help and didn't get anywhere. One psychatrist says this is normal hypnagogic hallucinations if you're stressed. Another mental health professional says get to a psychiatrist soon. I honestly don't know what to do. I'm still working and everything. This is really stressful though.

hypnagogic is basically just a micro-sleep. its the REM dream state kicking in for a short time then stopping. so then you're not really seeing a hallucination with your senses but with your mind.

when the dream state kicks in it pulls the consciousness out of the senses and puts it into the mind. during the day 70% of our consciousness is on our senses and 30% on our mind. then when the dream state kicks in it switches to 10% on the senses and 90% on the mind. this happens every night when we fall asleep. so if you fall asleep for a micro-second that dream state will kick in and out. it will seem like you just had a visual hallucination. but actually while u were seeing it you were not seeing your senses. so it was just the hynogogic.

but if you see something in your sense reality. so u see the hallucination at the same time as the senses then that is a visual hallucination.

these micro sleeps are usually caused by not getting enough sleep. then the brain is just trying to fall asleep. but it will wake back up right away because you are not in bed. so the environment wakes u back up again.

I went for help at a hospital the other day. Explained everything and was released. I was shown ways to cope with stress. I still don't think it's normal to hear voices that disrupt sleep.

You might have a sleep disorder. My hallucinations are really at night too, when tired or even just relaxed with my eyes closed. I haven't been tested for narcolepsy but they say sleep architecture is different for people with it. Maybe a sleep study is in order, where they observe you overnight

That's how mine are too. I'll start dreaming within a few minutes of falling asleep. Then I heard sounds or get visions while waking up or going to sleep. Then throughout the day I'm upset wondering what's up. 3 psychatric center visits and 2 ER visits over the past year. I never did get an answer.
