Had on & off shaking. Now got violent, scary, shouting between sleeps, hear bell ringing, scratching. Problem?

I have experienced shaking on and off for about a year now. Previously it was rare that it would happen and was very minor, just like a cold shiver when I layed down so thought nothing of it. But in the past 2 weeks its got alot more violent and scary. I will lay down either on the sofa or to go to sleep and will violently shake ( appearing like a fit) but am completely conscious and aware. The past couple of days I have woken myself up almost every 10 minutes with this shaking as well as shouting and sometimes crying. Occassionally I hear noises like bells ringing or scratching but this is no where near as common. I really hope you can help as it has got quite scary. Thank-you

Hi there ~

I understand your concern and feel like you might need neuropsychiatric intervention. Work-up should include an EEG which is similar to the ECG except that it is for the head. I also hope that the anxiety surrounding the issues is also addressed and you are started on medications at the same time. I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

They are auditory hallucinations...
You need psychiatric assessment and assistance
Neurologic examination / MRI and/or MRA , as also EEG / are usually necessary to exclude possible underlying organic lesion and atypical seizure...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
