Constant feeling of being watched by someone. Vivid nightmares. Unable to tell sleeping or hallucinating. Why?

I extremely and despairingly often get the feeling that someone is watching me. Ive felt like this since i was young, and I m 19 now Its terrifying. I cant sleep. I get vivid nightmares quite often and often cant tell if I m awake or not, like, in a situation where I feel like Im being watched, and I feel someone touching me, or moving my leg. I cant tell if I m asleep or hallucinating..

Welcome to Health Care Magic

The symptoms you have mentioned are-
- feeling that someone is watching or suspiciousness
- fearfulness
- feeling that someone is touching or hallucinations

These symptoms may be due to some psychopathology.
It may be prodromal features of schizophrenia as in prodromal phase sleeplessness, suspiciousness, hallucinations are seen
It may be due to chronic insomnia, which may lead to heightened anxiety and then such symptoms

As per my opinion discuss with your parents and visit a psychiatrist and get proper evaluation done.
Hope I cleared your doubt.
