Can you id this insect?
So basically I see only small dots of red in the room flying as if it were an insect, but it's not alight all the time, also they illuminate a bit when close. but it is a brief flash, not continuous.
They are poisonous, I slept a lot when bitten and have been dizzy for quite a while, though I am better now.
Not sure what else can I say, some bits of my face were kinda paralyzed, hard to move more precisely, a part of my upper lip for instance.
Go to a doctor. You could be experiencing blood flow problems to your brain, though it doesn't sound like anything classic like a kind in the vertebral arteries or some such. You could also be having a migraine.
For what it's worth, I've had things like what you described happen on and off most of my life. I used to think beings were tampering with me as a I slept, I'd see flashes and moving red lights outside my door. Distortions moving through space as though something with a crude cloaking device, or something translucent was moving around.
I have visual snow though, and for a lot of my childhood had alice in wonderland syndrome-like stuff go on. I'm all fucked up anyway, but as of yet, don't know the precise cause. What you described is very similar.
Huh, so that's what it's called. I've had these (all the symptoms on the wiki page) for as long as I can remember. Never thought it was anything out of the usual, just how our eyes worked.
Should I go to a doctor and tell them about it, or is it NBD?
I always assumed the human visual system was just prone to heavy noise by nature, and afterimages were something that arises normally from the competitive way color processing works. Eventually I figured that wasn't the case.
You should go to a doctor and tell them more or less what you told us to rule out anything serious. In the case of visual snow, there's not presently anything to really be done about it or any of the other traits that cluster with it. They likely won't even know what it is.
A lot of people can misinterpret normal behavior of the visual system with visual snow however, the delineation is with intensity and the cluster of symptoms you read about. Whether you have it or not, it sounds like something else could be going on and is important to identify or rule out.
