Why do i Hallucinate when

When I exert my body physically? for example a heavy weight lifting session… or a hours boxing workout… anyone?

I’ve no idea but maybe ask your doctor if they have a clue. Might be just from the stress that your mind relaxes or more bloodflow? I’d imagine increased bloodflow stimulates the old noggin. I’d be curious as I exercise a lot these days.


Yes, I experienced similar. I carry a >15l of water for two hours straight a few times a week, which is a heavy-enough weight for a wuss like me. When I start to get tired, I experience emotional instability, a degree of delusions, but not hallucinations.

This effect is similar, but not equal, to what I experience after eating food that is dangerous to me. I described this in details in one of the topics I created here, you can see it in my profile.

However, when I do push-ups, my hallucinations are actually reduced for the duration of the workout. It’s after I am done that something may or may not happen. Note that my workout is just <100 pushups a day lasting for around 50minutes. Therefore I might just not push myself enough to get my symptoms.

What I am guessing it is some kind hormonal malfunction. But frankly I have no idea why that happens or how to combat it.
