Hey guys, this is a bit hard to explain so bear with me. I've been getting this sensation lately that I used to get quite often as a child. It's very unnerving and I guess it scares me in a way. While lying in bed with my eyes closed, it's as if the darkness behind my eyelids is 'expanding' very quickly, and I am suddenly a very small being within a very large, dark space. I also get somewhat of a 'zooming' sensation, and a feeling of weightlessness in my head. During this experience I feel very worried/unnerved, probably because I have no explanation for what is going on or the fact that no one else knows what the hell I'm talking about when I try and explain it to them. When I got it as a child it was much worse, it was usually accompanied by sound, e.g I could hear a large group of people talking as if they were in my room. I remember I used to explain it to my parents just as 'that feeling' but I don't think they ever really understood what I was on about. I've done a little bit of research, and uncovered something called Alice in Wonderland Syndrome or 'AIWS'. It relates to the conditions of micropsia and macropsia. A description of Macropsia: "Macropsia (also known as megalopia) is a neurological condition affecting human visual perception, in which objects within an affected section of the visual field appear larger than normal, causing the subject to feel smaller. Macropsia, along with its opposite condition, micropsia, can be categorized under dysmetropsia. Macropsia is related to other conditions dealing with visual perception, such as aniseikonia and Alice in Wonderland Syndrome (AIWS, also known as Todd’s syndrome). Macropsia has a wide range of causes, from prescription and illicit drugs, to migraines and (rarely) complex partial epilepsy, and to different retinal conditions, such as epiretinal membrane. Physiologically, retinal macropsia results from the compression of cones in the eye. It is the compression of receptor distribution that results in greater stimulation and thus a larger perceived image of an object." The only thing is this only seems to happen when my eyes are closed, I don't see over-enlarged objects or feel really small at any other times, otherwise it's the closest thing I can find to explain this sensation. I should note that I have never taken drugs, so we can rule that out. Has anyone else experienced this?
