I've have new voices which have only happened a handful of times. I posted a longer message earlier asking for advice whether I should tell me doctor or not. Just looking for some more advice please. When I've experienced these voices I've had a very strange sensation, like the voices go through me body and I feel intense fear like I'm frozen on the spot. It's hard feeling to describe, the voices feel like they get closer as they fade and swap from ear to ear. one occasion it felt like they came from the walls and were moving towards me. I want to explain this to my psychiatrist but I fear I will sound stupid. Has anyone else ever had strange sensations when hearing voices? Is this normal or am I gound sound crazy and stupid?

This does not sound crazy to me and you're certainly not stupid.

In all my chats with people who hear voices a common theme is how they can have a physical effect on us, I know mine has with me.

Please don't be scared to talk to your psychiatrist about this. Are you on any medication?

I'm on quetiapine and mirtazipine. They have only happened a handful of times over the past few years and lasted a very short time. I'm diagnosed with EUPD I'm not sure if hearing voices is a symptom of this illness or not. I was worried it could be something more serious but also wondering if I'm overthinking it all. My mind is convincing me I shouldn't tell anyone. Thanks for the reply.
