Every once in a while this thing happens to me where all my thoughts become very saturated and intense,(sort of like a pulsing optical illusion that juts out at you?) and start to swirl all around my head like I'm in the centre of a tornado. I've tried to look it up, and the closest thing I could find was a migraine aura. The thing is that there is no physical pain involved, it is just an unpleasant experience and uncomfortable. Mostly when it happens it is completely random, this used to happen to me a lot when I was a kid but now is happening more and more. A couple of days ago I heard the noise of running water, and the sound was so solid that it turned my thoughts into this tornado thing. The feeling after is very similar to collapsing, dazed and kind of sad as you try to recollect the thoughts. I was wondering if this happens to you if you know what it is or why it happens. Ask any questions :goodluck::faint:

It sounds like racing thoughts which is a symptom of agitated depression or hypo/mania.

It may be related to something else, but that was my feeling from what i read.
