I don't know how else to describe this. Maybe it's just what others call 'tired but wired'? This started about a year ago. I would go to bed and once the light was out it became apparent just how frantic everything in my brain was. It's like my brain is bouncing around in my head. There is no stillness, no one train of thought. Just continual hoping from one thought to the next. Sometimes I seem to see patterns behind my eyelids (closed eye visuals?), swirling, movement of areas of light/dark. I've also had some visions that seem to be related to my thoughts - like I might see a face or an object pop up briefly. This sounds scary, and it's not pleasant, but these are not vivid hallucinations. Finally, I've also experienced the sensation that my eyes want to move, and that I'm having to consciously keep my eyelids closed. Oh the irony. Luckily, I've not experienced any profound insomnia and usually fall asleep within 20–30 mins. I have no history of anxiety or anything like that. I assume it is just another symptom of exhaustion. Can anyone relate?
