Hallucinations upon waking up

I've had this problem since I was just a kid, but recently it is becoming more serious.

When I was younger, I would quite often wake up in the morning, Game Boy Color in hands, set it aside and rub my eyes, then freak out because I couldn't find my Game Boy. Of course, it wasn't there. Just a hallucination, though I swear I could feel it when I first woke up. This same thing happened with books, but I learned to not even bother looking for something that I 'woke up with'. It wasn't there.

Today, I woke up and found myself staring at a giant spider on my ceiling. Me being the little girl I am, jumped out of bed and backed into a corner staring at it. 30 seconds later, "D'aww, I've been trolled again". Golddron goes back to bed feeling stupid.

Quite often I wake up muttering about some nonsense (Which my roommate finds terribly amusing and constantly reminds me of).

I hate it. I want to wake up, and not say/do anything stupid.

I might add that when I used to sleep over at someones house, I sometimes would have Night Terrors.

Is it just anxiety? I feel fairly light hearted. What do you all recommend?

Also, this isn't caused by drugs. For one, I take none. And two, if I drink a 6 pack, then go to sleep, I never have these experiences.

Re: Hallucinations upon waking up

Sounds like sleep paralysis of sorts.

You're basically still dreaming when you wake up... Perhaps your sleep cycle is off, causing you to wake up during REM sleep?

Re: Hallucinations upon waking up

Perhaps. Any recommendations?

I might also add that this occurs frequently if I go to sleep while my roommate is still up, with low lighting in the room. I'll wake up and hour later spouting nonsense.

Re: Hallucinations upon waking up

When I was about 7 or 8, I woke up from a dream I was having and heard the voice of a girl I knew saying my name. It sounded like she was right next to me, so I looked to my left, and I thought that my blanket was vaguely shaped like her, so I felt it. It was just a blanket.

That's the only instance of any kind of hallucination-related things happening to me that I can recall, though. I'm not sure why it would reoccur in your case.

Re: Hallucinations upon waking up

Honestly, I don't know to much about sleep problems. Over the summer, my little sister would have night terrors/sleep walk almost every night, but that's about my only experience with sleeping issues.

Considering this has been occurring since you were young, I don't think sleep deprivation could be a contributing factor. From what I gathered from google just a second ago, there are two types of hallucinations that are related to sleep. Hypnopompic hallucinations, which are the kind you experience, and hypnogogic hallucinations, which occur just before sleep. I'm not going to pretend to be an expert, so I'll just leave this here:

Hopefully it helps.

YES! This. Things will kind of melt back into different shapes/shadows.

This isn't an every day occurrence, but I'd say once a week or so.

Re: Hallucinations upon waking up

I get that very often, I usually think my phone is in my hand and spend like a minute poking at my own palm trying to turn my phone on xD

And sometimes if I'm holding something in the dream I just had, I'll still feel like I'm holding it when I wake up. It's confusing but I think it's a cool little brain quirk. :3

Re: Hallucinations upon waking up

It seems I have a similar problem.

A couple years ago, I fell asleep in my brothers room. All of a sudden, everything seemed so bright and I felt something crawling around me. I don't know how to explain it, but I was still sleeping while I was awake. I knew what was going on, but I couldn't control it. I remember yelling that there are lemmings crawling around me, and I felt embarassed.

Re: Hallucinations upon waking up

So basically I don't believe that it might be this since you've had it since you was a child, but I'll give it a try anyway:

It sounds like you're still dreaming right? Well, I used to have some trouble with nightmares and such due stress. What really helped was just to relax with a warm bath and going earlier to bed and waking up when you wanted. Except when you have school or work though.

Re: Hallucinations upon waking up

I have this same issue but it doesn't bother me.
My most common issue is when I need to go to the bathroom and I look at these specs, most of the time they move around like little bugs. At first I thought they were tiny bugs, but realized it's just my imagination.

Other times I see objects just when I get up from a deep sleep. Once I saw a floating red dress in front of my face. I tried to touch it but my hand went through it. As I started to wake, it faded away.
So I just try to enjoy these experiences. The trick is know what's real, and what's not.
