bright flash??? - December 8th 2009, 07:08 PM

Today was a pretty normal day and I had just come home from school and as I shut the door and look down the hallway there was a really bright yellow flash that lasted only a fraction of a second...theres nothing reflecting anywhere near there and i was facing away from the road. Everything went yellow and I felt absolute terror while standing right there. I got really dizzy and I cant really walk around without tripping over stuff right now..a little concerned about my mental health and why my head is throbbing right now

Hi Mike

Thats an unusual sitiuation to find yourself in. However I wouldnt say this was a pyschotic experiance. Maybe it was just a sign from someone. If something like that happened to me Id be scared. So would most, but maybe you were just dehydrated or something. Anyway maybe you should get to a doctor...just to be sure things are ok physically and mentally

Seeing flashes of light can be a sign that something is wrong with your eyes.
Maybe you should go to your doctor?

Perhaps you looked at a light, shut your eyes then opened them and got a temporary flash. It's like when you look at the Sun or a lightbulb. Usually though your head doesn't throb so that part I think is a bit unusual, then again, that could be due to something else. If it occurs again even when you're not looking at a light, then I say don't go to a psychiatrist, go to the hospital or doctor's office as you may need to see an eye doctor or neurologist. Were you taking any medications or illegal substances that could have contributed to that?

It can have different reasons, but probably it's nothing psychologic. I have it sometimes, too.

-not enough sugar in your blood. In stand of seeing stars or black, you may see bright flashes.

-your neurotics: people with epileptic problems or even without those problems, can have them. It means your brains have no oxygen for an instant, so they don't work for a little instant.

Like others have said, I'd lean more towards a neurological/physical explanation than a psychological one. Especially considering the diziness, it sounds like it threw off your equilibrium which would be a physical thing. If it occurs again, I'd consult with a doctor.
