Hypnagogia connects wakefulness and sleep. Like REM, it's a state of vivid dreaming, but you're aware enough of what is going on. This can be an excellent source of inspiration! During hypnagogia, you may experience visions, flashes of color, subconscious insights, sounds, and a period of open-mindedness. Many creative minds get their best ideas from this dreamy, trance-like state of mind.
Migraine headaches can start at a very young age and continue into adulthood. It can be a disabling condition and a frightening experience for the child and the parent. Nausea along with pressure in the head is the most common symptom. Other symptoms include unexplained fear, listlessness, and crying. In severe cases, visual disturbances and hallucinations can also occur. It is important to make the right diagnosis and treat the condition accordingly.
Any drug that acts on the central nervous system has the potential to cure nightmares in some people. While parameters for nightmares are vague at best, it is impossible to identify which nightmare is a side effect of medicines and which one isn’t. Dopamine agonists, sedatives, beta blockers used to treat hypertension and amphetamine medicines are most commonly associated with sleep attacks and nightmares in people.
Psychosis, what most of us insensitively refer to as madness, is not the only cause for hallucinations. Hallucinations can be experienced by sane, healthy individuals as well – for instance, while falling in and out of sleep, after the loss of a loved one or pet, when having unbearable migraine headaches, and after intoxication with psychoactive stimulants like LSD and magic mushrooms.
With the weakening of our five senses as we age, parts of the brain responsible for these senses become hyperactive. They fabricate sounds, sights, smells, tastes, and feelings creating hallucinations. Age-related diseases that involve nerve degeneration like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, certain pills, and infections can also interfere with the brain’s neural circuitry and alienate us from reality.
