When I was younger, I got sick every now and then, but it was a strange kind of sickness. I can remember one time in September 2000 when I thought I had the stomach flu -- I was achey, had a fever, I couldn't eat, it hurt when I peed, had diarrhea. But the weirdness would happen at night. I was hallucinating things in my living room (I recall 'seeing' a large tent in my living room and there were people in it, and another time it looked like white noise was "snowing" to the ground in my parents room). I slept with the TV listings channel on, and there were commercials and stuff on the channel, but the voices of the people would be quiet, and then they would get really, really loud (in my head). Even if I turned down the volume on the TV I was having visual and auditory hallucinations. It was the scariest thing that ever happened to me and has happened about two times since.

Has this experience/illness (strange hallucinations while sick) happened to anyone else? I didn't know where to put this but it was so weird.

That's terrifying. I never hallucinated visually when I was sick (though I hallucinate at the drop of a hat since I had a seizure in 2005- a side effect of zoloft), but I used to get delirious, talking to people that weren't there, reliving past conversations and speaking my part aloud. I never saw anything, though.
Now, I see what appears to be little points of rainbow light scurrying across my field of vision like insects. My doctor says its a kind of migraine.
Also, when I haven't had a lot of sleep, the walls bulge out at me.
The funny thing is, I've never touched a hallucinogen in my life. Who needs that when I've got this show going on in my head? :tongue:

That happened to me as a kid with the flu several times.

The first time I took a high dosage of DXM, I thought, 'oh yeah, I remember this.'

are you sure that's considered to be delirious? because I have to admit the exact same thing happens to me all the time!
enlighten me please!

I've had some hardcore hallucinations when I'm sick, especially when sleep deprived

According to the American Heritage Stedman's Medical Dictionary:

de·lir·i·um:

A temporary state of mental confusion resulting from high fever, intoxication, shock, or other causes, and characterized by anxiety, disorientation, memory impairment, hallucinations, trembling, and incoherent speech.

Close enough for me.Posted Image

ohh man i used to trip ballz when i was a little kid with a high fever.
ok now what i can remember on some different occasions.
i was sleeping in my bed and woke up. i was sure i was on a mission to get gold bricks from the door in the middle of my parents bed. i walked into thier room and i actually saw a trap door, opened it, and started bringing gold back to my room. my parents woke up and were like what are you doing. i told them and they were like oookayyy. so my mom new i had a severe fever and i took a cold shower and i was sitting there with her and i thought these huge soccer players were trying to trample our house so i started screaming and shit. it was so scary.
then there were times when i would just look at the t.v. and it would swirl and become a portal type thing

so yea
