Has anyone else experienced slight hallucinations because of anxiety? I started getting them when I was younger and am going to therapy for it but we still haven't figured out why it started.

      Have you consulted with a neurologist to eliminate medical causation? If you've only seen one that doesn't go through tests to analyze the cause, I encourage getting a second more specialized neurologist's opinion. They may concur with the first ones choice, but not all doctor's advocate for the idea of looking for a medical causation, as they identify the approach to treatment equal to current diagnosis. I personally find that even when small possibilities are crossed of the list from a medical point, I grow in dedication to there therapist's approach.

      I’ve hallucinated once because of stress more so than anxiety. It hasn’t recurred, but I’m scared of it happening again

      I had a friend who hallucinated as a side effect of an anxiety medication

      Sometimes I would see shadows in my peripheral vision or feel like I'm hearing things. I think its the anxiety also bringing about paranoia after bit but im not sure.
