I was only diagnosed about nine months ago, and am still getting used to and learning about all my symptoms.
Question regarding hallucinations:
I understand hypnagogic and hypnopompic hallucinations, that they occur in bed while you're between sleeping and waking. My question is about hallucinations at other points in the day. For example, when you are awake, but really, really exhausted and trying to stay awake, does anyone ever have minor hallucinations then? I've been finding that, as I get more tired, first my sensory awareness gets fuzzy. I become hypersensitive usually. Then I've begun finding that sometimes, my vision becomes... odd. I'm not seeing full hallucinations, but often times flashes of things out of the corner of my eye, or the texture of surfaces changes. Do narcoleptics start to hallucinate sometimes even before they've fallen asleep?
