That would have been brilliant had it been possible, especially if I could have worked out definitively if it was just a mental defect or some form of paranormal communication cheesy
The problem was actually the fact that it was "mumbling" - exactly like hearing a TV or radio from too far away to tell what was being said - so I had no way of telling whether the voice/s were negative or positive or some of each.
My unfortunate habit of analysing and rethinking everything from first principles made this a bad situation for me especially as it was usually worst when trying to sleep.
I basically went through 1. Is there actually a TV or radio on somewhere ? answer NO. 2. Am I just going insane ? 3. Is it telepathy ? 4. Is it Aliens ? 5. Is it ghosts ? 6. Is any option 3 to 5 good ? 7. Is any option 3 to 5 bad ? 8. Is there any way to prove or rule out options 3 to 5 ? 9. Go back to 1.

The only remaining really odd "symptom" is an occaissional "tickle" in my left ear, this used to happen before I started the tablets and came back when I stopped taking them. Otherwise I just seem to be slightly more emotional than when I was taking the tablets.

Sorry. Should we say Asia/Pacific. To my knowledge, the 5 officiel continents do not include Australia.

@Bib- Who knows smiley every book seems to have different names and numbers of continents.

David, I'm not a doctor but if you look online you may be surprised at the number of people with similar symptoms, so I'm sure its not 1 to 5. For a period I used to get this weird really loud BANG in my head just before going to sleep, then I stumbled upon this chat group where hundreds had reported in describing exactly the same symptoms and how they thought they must be going insane, its actually called 'exploding head syndrome'!!  It went away after a while... I think perhaps I had been working too hard and not giving myself a break.

Don't worry about it, I know it's a relatively common condition - specifically it's pschyzophrenia and in my case was brought on by too much weed combined with overwork and did reach the acute stage where I was "on another planet", clinically psychotic and suffering depression and paranoia too. When treated initially with chlorpromazine I asked the doctor was I on a high dose as it was making me very sleepy and lethargic - he said that I was on enough to put an elephant to sleep.
Fortunately my prescription was changed to risperidone and reduced to just 1mg a day, that worked far batter than the chlorpromazine and as I said I'm now even off the risperidone.
Because of my experiences I no longer believe that marijuana/cannabis should be classed as a safe drug, though I do still believe it's properties need investigating further to produce beneficial drugs (in particular for relief of acute/chronic pain).
