Hallucinations, in simple words, can be described as the perceptions or sensations that are experienced by a person when they are awake which seem to be real, but they are not actually real, they are created by the brain. How actually you experience hallucinations cannot be predicted that means, you may see something, you may hear something, you may taste something which isn’t real, you may smell something or feel something which does not exist.
Some common signs of hallucinations are, seeing objects which are not real, hearing voices when there is no one around or when people around do not speak, a sensation of skin crawling, etc.
Hallucination is completely different from dreams. In dreams, you are not awake, but in hallucinations you are awake. Basically, hallucinations are medical conditions or psychiatric conditions of the brain.
Signs and Symptoms of Hallucinations:
There are many reasons for hallucinations and it varies from person to person. Mental illness is one of the main reasons for hallucinations. A recent breakup of a relationship or a loss of someone close can cause hallucinations. Substance abuse is said to be a common cause for hallucinations such as too much alcohol or drug abuse. An overdose of medicine or misuse of medicine or lack of proper sleep can also be a reason. Seek immediate medical help when you experience any of the signs in yourself or in someone close to you. Medical help can make things better.
