Question: I get feelings of déjà vu…need to close my eyes to make it go away!

I’m hoping there is a doctor or someone knowledgeable reading these comments. I have been taking pain pills for years and I experience(not every time, maybe 1 out of every 10 or 15 times) crazy deja vu and it is extremely uncomfortable. It will be either something on the t.v. or just in a room with people when conversations are going on. But I’ll get an extremely uneasy feeling come over me and whatever is happening around me, I will get a sense of having been in that exact scenario before , to the point where I know everything about to be said or everything about to happen in the TV show. And I have to turn away or close my eyes because it makes me physically ill and I can’t watch it. It lasts for 10 or 15 seconds and it’s the worst 10 or 15 seconds in the world. Like I said, I get nauseous, feel like I’m about to be sick, and literally have to change the channel or close my eyes for a few seconds to try and make it go away. Has anyone experienced this and/or does anyone know why this is happening? Thanks in advance.

I have seen many patients like this in my clinical practice.
It happens to sensitive people who get involved in surrounding things quiet easily.
I agree with you and am with you..
Perhaps the only treatment for this is not getting involved in surrounding things. Try and divert mind in something else once you start getting that feeling.
Meditation can do wonders. Unfortunately..there are no tablets to cure this
