Hi, I have been trying to get an accurate description on the sensations that have been pouncing on me the past week or so. I have had panic attacks in the past, but this is different... because I'm not panicking. In fact, sometimes I giggle- followed by nausea and feeling like I just need to lay down.
Out of nowhere, a very extreme and intense feeling of Deja vu overcomes me- a roller coaster rush of adrenaline and tingling, mostly in my upper body, are the physical symptoms, but it's the deja vu 'visions' that are so perplexing and 'real'... I get so, so close to making the connection of what I'm feeling and the 'dream vision', so I can get back to reality, but I never do. It slips away, and now I'm nauseous, disoriented, tired.. and scared.
My daughter (23) and I (48) have had Lyme a few years ago. She has been having strange 'numbness' and migraine symptoms for a few years now. Her MRI's are good- no tumors, and migraine meds are helping. She says she has had crazy Deja vu also, but she says they are just a little weird, not intense. Could Lyme have something to do with this?
My GP says that I am only the second person in thirty years of practice to brought this to his attention, and he does not have an answer for me- yet.
My therapist has never heard this from any of her patients
oh my god I have never, ever had someone so closely echo my exact experience. It's almost a relief! When you said that you get so close to remembering whatever it is but you never quite get there - that is the EXACT same feeling I have! i also described it like a roller coaster feeling in my stomach and nausea, yet it's kind of pleasant and in fact I used to try to think of/remember things to bring on the feeling, but it would just happen when it wanted to. I had these in high school and I haven't had one since college I don't believe, and then when I was 22 I started having grand mal seizures and I've had four or five since (I'm 28). My neurologist said they were probably what's called simple partial seizures, and they frequently occur in temporal lobe epilepsy. Since it's such a strange experience, I never felt 100% positive that's what it was, but whatever it is, we definitely both have the exact same thing. Crazy. I always described it as "deja vu but times a thousand." Never met anyone who related in my life.

I have found everything from menopause to seizures listed in Google searches. I won't have health insurance for a few months yet, so I'm avoiding tests right now. For right now I am focusing on keeping stress levels WAY down...
Keep in touch
I have exactly the same feeling before I have a seizure. Well actually the dejavu is actually part of the seizure. The doc was right, mine are complex partial seizures. I also have tonic seizures. Its what they call an aura, a warning sign of the seizure. Allows me to sit down or tell a friend I'm about to have one.
I have not had an episode for the past few weeks, and when I first wrote my entry the feeling were still pretty clear. After a 'spell' I feel a bit nauseous and then fatigue- like I just want to lay down. I first noticed these spiraling sensation in the middle of the night- they would wake me up in a start, but not quite in a panic, just disorientation. I know I snore because my kids have complained about it, so I wrote it off to a side affect of sleep apnea. I thought... 'Perhaps I wasn't breathing and my body was shocking me to wake up'. But when they started happening during the day it really freaked me out. To be honest, the google searches are not very comforting, lol. Thanks guys :-)
Hi I had my first intense experience of Da Ja Vue approx 3 years ago and have just , over the past couple of days , experience extreme intense Da Ja Vue to the point of blacking out . Nausia and worry is overwhelming me at the moment . Worried about going to the doctors about what may be discovered .
I have to fight hard to stop thinking about it and its possible implications , I am not used to not being in control .
