      I see bugs that are not there

      Yes, I hallucinate bugs. Out of the corner of my eye. Does anybody know what this is?

      Do you do any drugs?

      If not, Do they actually look like bugs? Or just black dots?

      Better to see bugs that are not there, than not to see the bugs that are.

      I think many people see black dots, but bugs are rarer. Are you conscious of their hallucinatory nature at the time? If not, this might be some form of delusional parasitosis.

      If it's mainly movement that you're seeing and not detailed, vivid insects, it's a common symptom of prolonged stress and/or sleep deprivation. When I was a teenager with a very stressful home situation and frequent insomnia, I often saw movement in my peripheral vision, sometimes to the extent that it would seem like something specific, like a person or a mouse or a cat, until I looked directly at it--and there was no "it."
      If you have a sense of caring for others, you will manifest a kind of inner strength in spite of your own difficulties and problems. With this strength, your own problems will seem less significant and bothersome to you. By going beyond your own problems and taking care of others, you gain inner strength, self-confidence, courage, and a greater sense of calm.Dalai Lama

      I often hallucinate bugs and flying bats when I am sleep deprived. A little more information about your situation in general would help.

      Yesss! Especially when I am thinking about bugs or I have seen a bug recently. I also get these weird feelings that make me think a bug is crawling all over me.

      When I was a small child I used to wake up in the middle of the night and hallucinate bugs in my bed. Sometimes they even glowed.

      It is like that. But no, I don't live under much stress & I don't have any sleep deprivation at all. I'm quite healthy. Well, at least I think I am.

      Well, when I was little (as in, single digits; I can't remember exact beginning and end times) I used to have this happen, particularly at night. Sometimes I'd even hear the bugs making their noises. It had my parents pretty worried...but I kinda just grew out of it, I guess, since with time they appeared less and less frequently and then stopped altogether within a year or so. I can't say it will be the same for you, but there's always that chance...

      Ok, well. How do you know they look like bugs if you can only see them out of the corner of your eye? Where things usually aren't clear?

      I'm just going to guess they don't actually look exactly like bugs. And it could just be something wrong with your eyes. I would suggest to see an ophthalmologist first.

      I just say this because if you were going crazy you would not know it was a hallucination. You are hallucinating, you aren't delusional.

      Also are you sure about the drugs? This includes coffee/caffeine and alcohol.
      Or maybe used to use alcohol a lot and now don't?

      I-maybe they don't. But I can remember I've seen the forms of cockroaches, however faint.
      No, no drugs at all. No alcohol, no caffeine, nada.

      Ok. Maybe go see a doctor then. Coz that's strange. I've never heard of that happening. Usually hallucinating bugs accompany other symptoms too.

      YOU ARE NOT ALONE!!! -- and not crazy!!! Are you waking up after a dream when these visions of bugs are occurring? I used to have them, but I know it is the transition from dreaming to being awake. Though if this is just a random occurrence I would get that looked at

      Best of luck!

      But what if

      I see them to?
      Not all the time, normally in low lighting conditions.
      I have read with interest some of the threads.
      I do cram a lot into a day and probably sleep less than many, so the sleep depravation thing does sound plausible.
      My gran used to see them, but they were passed off as floaters and deteriorating eye sight.
      I'm not mad or up on hallucinogenic drugs as some of your less opened minded readers have suggested is a possible cause?
      But what if I do see them?
      I mean, what when all of the neurological, optical, and hyperthetical plausability fail?
      What if the peripheral vision for some is a way to view something or where else?
      After all, you can't see the shock wave of a blast, or uv rays, but we know they are there?
      I just think that as long as they are causing me no harm or concern, then leave them be

      You tell us absolutely nothing about when you see these bugs, and how you see these bugs. In any case, check out the following, and see if any of it applies to you:

      Is it at all possible they actually ARE bugs? Did you follow them?

      My philosophy

      Bit about me
      Im an engineer, i fix faults on v complex electrical systems, work more hours than i should and love every minute of it.
      Im a very young in the head 43 year old, so would class myself as being old in the tooth.
      My point?
      I truly believe that there are at least 2 types of people.
      The first sees the strange, whatever it may be, and if the system is pushed further by that person following up on what they have seen, further strange phenominum follow.
      The other is the exact opposite, using ridicule and vicious comments to disuade further comment, or to put off making comment in the first place.
      The insect things i have seen are not at all common, i think i can count on one hand the times it has happened.
      A few times it has been when i have been watching tv whilst in bed, the tv is on a bracket at high level on the wall and something seemed to crawl into the light and sit there.
      It was approx 5 to 10mm across.
      I got out of bed, turned the light on and it wasnt there?
      The other again was at night, i walked into the kitchen and something about an inch across squeezed under the cupboard kick board. thing is the kick board is flush to the tiles, so impossible mission or what?
      My wife is pretty much ocd cleaning, and if you dropped food on the floor anywhere in the house you could pick it up and eat it, it reallly is that clean!
      I dont think its psychosomatic as i don't have any insect phobias, worries or family issues?
      I just pass it off as weird, and probably because i am a bit tired?
      But hey, who knows, there are definitely stranger things happen at sea.
