Tactile Hallucination symptoms

Hi i get really odd sympthoms , sensations on my extremities , around the groin area , become hyper sexualised (dont laugh :)) i also get somatic visceral sensations. This is my number one problem that i and my tratment team are trying to resolve. Have you found a medication or natural treatment for these sensations

Was anther thread on this a short while ago or was that you?

Great! No it wasnt me , any ideas when , my sympthoms are pretty unique , at least i havent met anyone yet who is similar. I’d appreciate it if you could reply

:slight_smile: funny that i wonder if these sympthoms correspond to a particular biology that is targeted by a certain antipsychotic.

Tried looking for the thread for you but had no luck. At least Erratica answered so you know you’re not alone. I’ve only been here a few months and would of been within that time that the other thread was posted. If you want to go look for it.

I had stuff like that when I wasn’t on meds. Really intense stuff that I think is being amplified by my jacked-up mind. It happens very rarely on Invega, and if it does happen, alcohol is usually involved. But I’ve had myriad other tactiles, including bizarre, surreal sensations in my head, legs, hands. I hate tactiles! It got so bad several times that I was on a cane! I wonder if D2 antagonism lessens sexual desires, I ought to do some Web searches.

Thanks for this appreciated

I’ve had tactile sensations. Risperdal helps.

Thanks anyway , admin tagged a few posts

This is the main problem I have too. I feel hot or cold, wind and pressure. The neat part is if I picture a hole in my head and breathe in I feel wind coming in through the hole. But sometimes I feel really sick because of someof the sensations. Sometimes I feel my intestines moving around, which I know is not right but it feels pretty real. I am on Seroquel and paliperidone. My symptoms gave improved a bit but I still have strange things going on all the time.

They hire professional sports players to come beat me and torture me. My symptoms are a class act with tactile hallucinations. Ah well.

Hello everybody. I entered this forum out of serious desperation because I have severe tactile hallucinations. I have sensations of many hands touching my body, they rub my breasts, my body and at a time I had a hand going inside my eye preventing me from seeing. I’m schizoaffective for the past 20 years and this has never happened before. I started like this 5 months ago when I quitted seroquel by mistake cold turkey. Since then, I have gone to the hospital 3 times and tried many different antipsychotics without any success.The doctors don’t have answers for me. Two weeks ago, I started ECT treatment and I have already done 11 sessions and I’m still the same. I really need to find somebody that has overcome this hallucinations and see how they did recover. I’m in a lot of pain, please respond to me and tell me what you did to get well.

Why the heck are everyone’s tactile hallucinations sexual? Like everywhere online/in books says in psychosis the most typical tactile hallucination is something crawling on you. I’ve never heard of anyone with crawling tactile hallucinations, it’s all been sexual, which I think is really creepy and way worse.

I experience similar things.

A bunch of suffering people with sexual / tactile hallucinations. (Sigh.)

Or memories trying to re-surface?

My rec (coming from a lot of direct observational experience with this symptom): Find a therapist who knows who Patricia Ogden (the inventor of sensory-motor psychotherapy for trauma and PTSD) or Peter Levine (the inventor of somatic experiencing therapy for trauma and PTSD) are.

This a (not to pun) a “touchy” subject because of the implications, but I have to say that I’ve been waiting for a couple of weeks now to see when this was going to show up on this forum. Having glanced at the previous threads, I’m pretty sure this is barking up the very same tree I’ve seen out there in the physical world (with and without sz dx’s) many, many times.

Don’t reply and ask me to clarify this further unless you’re Ready for Anything.

@barbiebf

Why did you edit the subject header and add ‘hallucination’ , was it becoming trigerring for the community. This op is quite old now.

Just to surmise , hyper sexualization is a reality , certain physical actions occur , I’m a male , but completely concede that they are a sympthom of my schizophrenia , and the odd version of biology going on with myself.

Anyway in the spirit of debunking anyone’s triggering fears…

@notmoses
Your point on people ‘should be ready for anything’ , is odd , if you have evidence for something , scientific evidence , please include , and none of the messianic stuff.

Mine aren’t. Mostly it’s like I’m being given needles.

I didn’t edit the subject header. Hallucination was already there. I moved categories.

When you click on the ‘pencil’ edit icon you can scroll through the changes made. SzAdmin changed the title.

Apologies! I got confused.

No sense in saying anything else :slight_smile:
