So im home alone rn and i just finished watching a tv show. The thing is that after i turned off the tv and went upstairs for a drink i started hearing the tv again. So i went downstairs to turn it off but it wasnt on. Then i heard the upstairs tv on aswell so i went to check that and it wasnt on. 

Could this be a symptom of psychosis? I have a diagnosis of attenuated psychosis syndrome (finally got a diagnosis) so could it be part of that? Im really scared guys, any answers would help

I have had that problem with stereos and clock radios a lot, as well as smoke detectors. When you turn it off, remove the power source, and even smash it into bits with a hammer and it keeps going, you can be pretty sure you're hallucinating.

I get the thing where I hear my phone receive messages, but when I check the phone no messages have been received. I normally just put up with this, as its only real impact is me taking a few second to check my phone for new messages.

I hear music playing from the radio when I have checked it and checked it again and unplugged it etc. It wouldn't stop. I have heard my phone play music too after powering it down and deleting music apps. It's creepy.

I also hear my phone ding or ring like for a text message alert or call when there is none. But this happens to my husband and mom even at times (they think they heard their phone ring when it didn't). So I'm not sure if that is a normal occurrence or if that would be considered psychosis. They are the sanest people in my life! So who knows!

For me it was.  That and hearing other things that weren't there, especially people talking to me.

 

I also hear people talking too. This happens to me as well. It was way worse though when I was not medicated/not properly medicated. 

But I also hear music playing songs at times that I can't seem to find the true source of where it is coming from. Unplugging the radio didn't stop it. Deleting music apps and powering off my phone didn't stop it either. Again this was way worse without proper meds. I'm not saying it never happens now but it's not as severe I guess you'd say?

@unknown diagnosis do you see a pdoc or have any meds or a tdoc to help you? I'm sorry you are going through this. It is scary you are right.

@Wonderful.Cheese @melissaw72 yes i do have a pdoc and a tdoc that ive been seeing since december of 2016 after i was hospitalized for first episode psychosis. Im also on abilify 10mg and prozac 20mg. 

My diagnosis is now attenuated psychosis (plus other things) and with attenuated psychosis it can go two ways- 1 being i get better, 2 being i get worse. I never heard voices before i just had paranoia so thats why im a little scared that maybe im starting to get auditory hallucinations. Should i bring this up with my pdoc?

Yes, I would definitely bring this up with your DR.  Be honest about all of it.  The longer you wait to get treatment for it, the more it becomes ingrained (IME this has happened to me), and because I waited a few years to tell my pdoc, everything had become so ingrained that ie, if a voice /person thinking to me asks a question, I immediately answer it, as if I was in a conversation.  I isn't real, but I am just so used to doing it, it just happens now.  Had I been honest earlier on, I think everything would be happening on a lesser scale now for me, and might not have become ingrained.

So definitely tell your pdoc about all of this.  And be very honest.  Your pdoc can't help you otherwise.

Thanks for explaining what the attenuated psychosis means. I hadn't heard of that before. I have schizoaffective bipolar disorder. 

@melissaw72 said it all so well! I agree! Tell your Dr, yes. He/she can't help otherwise, like Melissa said. And early treatment is always good. I wish I had gotten proper treatment earlier. I think my life would be much better than it is now if that would have happened.

Be honest with your Dr and get the treatment you need and deserve.

      "Best" as in being effective with fewer side effects. Which ones were the best for you? Which ones did you take? What condition(s) did you treat? What side effects did you get? How did the antipsychotics compare to "conventional" antidepressants?
      Can antipsychotics be an alternative to "conventional" antidepressants? What are the risks? What are the benefits? Do they make you a tomato with time? Psychiatrists prescribe them more often in recent times, it seems.

      I had a terrible manic/psychotic episode last August, and I'm having a great deal of difficulty letting go of certain elements of the experience. I keep being gripped with the feeling I've made a terrible mistake of some kind that's going to result in something bad, but other times I'm able to reassure myself that's not the case. What's really bad is when i start to argue with myself internally about it, which can make me panicky. I do take Depakote and Zyprexa, so it's not like I'm not taking my meds.  Has anyone else had this kind of trouble? I thought about posting this in OCD but it seemed more relevant here.

      Sometimes out of the blue I get this feeling that I did something wrong and people will come to get me, because of this. Then I keep on reviewing what I did throughout the day and see that I did not do anything wrong. What causes this? Is this ocd or paranoia? How to prevent/deal/improve with this?

      Hello All,
      Looking for an opinion on something. I was put on Cogentin (Benztropine) 50mg a day for a neuroleptic crisis some years back. Almost immediately, I had visual hallucinations and even reported them to the nurse, who ignored it. Things spiraled out from there and my bizarre behavior got largely ignored, thanks to being under-insured. Eventually, I developed a heart arrhythmia so I was required to cold-turkey it. I don't wish benzodiazepine withdrawal syndrome on anyone. I had been on the medicine as well as narcotic-vicodin for about a year at that point. However, it made me wonder if having a paradoxical reaction to that specific hypnotic might be related to an underlying diagnosis? 
      My entire nuclear family, save for myself, each has at least three comorbid conditions a peice. They have all gone to years of therapy but I guess for not wanting to throw flame onto a burning trash fire, I was excluded. As a side note, I was also one of the kids who got placed in the drug trial for Ritalin--for adhd which my mother was told I didn't really have. I also ended up in the open market trial for Abilify some ten years ago, unknowingly. Ritalin made me catatonic and depressed. Abilify was a rather similar experience to Ritalin, except I also experienced anhedonia and dissociation. So technically that's three poor responses to frontline medicines... 
       
      Any thoughts would be appreciated.

      Had a tiny fight with my psychiatrist, he seems to be dobuting my diagnosis. In the hospital they tried to say i was bpd with bipolar, but my psychologist says i cant be bpd and even my psychiatrist used to think im not. I dont have any bpd traits other than emotional inestability. Anyways im mad bc people dobut my psychotic symptoms he thinks is just something from my imagination or something "typical" from me. Im mad bc the new medication is not working and now i have panic attacks i didnt had before. The  hospital kinda helped kinda made things worse. I feel like my doctor has left me behind, he doesnt care anymore, if he had answered or seen me  15days before when i asked, before i had my big crisis i wouldnt had ended in hospital. Im scheduling an appointment with a new doctor. But i feel so lost, so sad, like no one can help me, not even doctors. Its not fair. This illness is destroying my life. Has anyone ever had this kind of problems with doctors? Have you had a moment where medication made things worse?
