My brains has these fast motion periods where everything around me is going in fast motion what is it?

I'm 14 years old and I have these periods where my brain starts to race and it feels like everything is going in fast motion. When I talk, somebody is talking, music is playing or when I walk it feels like everything is going in fast motion like everything is being extremely rushed.It happens at least once every 2 weeks but i've had it twice this week . This only happened to me about 2 times in the past year but also I get these patterns of noises in my head when I'm lying in bed and it keeps me from sleeping.I just wanted to know what it was because I honestly am scared and my mother laughs at me when i try to tell her that something is wrong and it frustrates me

WOW. I cant believe this I get this as well. I was really thinking that I was the only person to get these. I have had them since I was a child and I used to get really upset and scared. But I am now 21 and just used to it. I don't get them all the time. It is usually at night and I feel like it seems to be after exercise but maybe not. I feel fine but my mind is just racing so fast and everything around me is going at crazy speeds. I have never worked out what is was nor a way to stop it from happening. So I always just let it happen and eventually pass. I am beginning to think it might be a bit of anxiety or just from being really tired, but I asked my parents if I was a stressed kid and they said not at all. :S so strange. haha glad im not the only one though

Hello my name is Rosie, I am experiencing this right now. This is the first time this has happened to me in years. I have never found anyone else who experiences it and nobody I have told understands it. Does anyone know why or how it happens?

when it first starting the fast mosion...ill be watching tv or driving or walking its like some one steped on the gas petle in my brain every thing started going real fast and I felt like I was going real slow when I was walking down hall I all was walk every day it felt like it was longer to go down that hall when I lay down my fan would be so loud and when I shut my eyes and here the fan it would sound like angry voices in my mind ...it started when I was 18 years old sometimes it would last 10 -30 mins  I think its stress cuz when I feel bad or sick it would last longer...to me it kinda feels like a spiderman sense every thing is super loud and inhants

I'm 14 and I have had this fast motion thing in my head ever since I can remember! It happens to me only when I wake up in the morning every few months, and it takes about an hour for it to slow down back to normal... I am sooooo glad I'm not the only one!
