Hearing voices: I wouldn't recommend trying to diagnose a psychiatric condition off of one set of symptoms. If you hear voices or sounds from either inside or outside your head and no one / nothing is there, this is not normal. This warrants a comprehensive evaluation by either a psychiatrist or a clinical psychological to accurately diagnose. Would recommend having this assessed sooner rather than later.
