What causes auditory hallucinations?

Hey. Every couple months I get this voice in my head, it's my own voice, but it speeds up and isn't controlled by me every couple months. These things only happen every couple months, and only last for about 10 minutes at a time, but this voice makes me feel weird, insecure, and in my head I feel like a could jump off a building. I just feel like I am going to actually start screaming. Luckily I have always been able to contain this thing, but if I am in public it gets really hard to control, even though I am talking like my normal self to people, I feel like I am going to just start jumping around like a lunatic and start yelling or something haha. What is wrong with me

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hi.

I had gone through your query.

I understand your concern.

Hallucinations has two types.
1. Visual
2. Auditary.

Auditary hallucination specially commanding or threatened may indicate psychopathology.

It can be a part of Psychosis or organic brain disorder.

but it is must to evaluate it about its content/duration/frequency etc.


Evaluation about others associated symptoms are also necessary to reach conclusion.

It can be treated with medicine like anti psychotics.

before that you have to consult psychiatrist and get help.

Still if you have a query then feel free to ask.

Happy to help you. Thank you.
