Tactile hallucinations

Im posting on the behalf of someone else.

Does anyone else have tactile hallucinations? I feel bugs on me all time and if someone else is touching me and pushing me around. How do you deal with it?

    Hi Unknown11,

    I've experienced this on many occasion the longest lasting 3 weeks. I was taught something in DBT called checking the facts, it involved looking for hard based evidence and if I could find anything factual then it wasn't real/true and then went by the process of challenging them.

    Tactile hallucinations are hard to deal with but sometimes its worth taking not of when they happen and paying attention to things like stress levels, sleep patterns, drug use and changes in soaps, detergent and what not. I think it would also be good to check that you're not lacking in vitamins because theses too can affect brain chemistry.

    I've experienced visual, tactile and delusional hallucinations and using the "checking the facts" skill has definitely helped me differentiate between what's real and whats not and where to go from there.

    Hope this helped.
