Hearing Screaming Voices In Your Head
While I was reading, I started hearing loud screaming voices in my head. What could this be? I only had two hours of sleep last night.
Sleep deprivation: Can cause unusual symptoms including hallucinations. On the other hand, hearing voices in your head on a daily basis is a serious condition that requires medical attention particularly if the voices are telling you to hurt yourself or someone else.

I tend to think in my head using words and my inner voice. When my mind is busy I write them down to think clearer. Is that seen as hearing voices? And is it a problem? -most people don't seem to do
No.: Auditory hallucinations is the actual process of hearing voices sometimes, commanding you to do things (command hallucinations) or say disparaging comments against you, berating and criticizing or some are voices with ill-defined words and the person who hears them cannot stop or argue with them. Thinking in your head, knowing they are your thoughts, saying them aloud is ok. ...Read more

Loud, undistinguishable screaming voices inside my head accompanied with strange feelings in my head and body. Could it be a brain tumour?
That worries me: If you hear any strange voices you need to seek counsel from your pcp. He/she may advise that you need further evaluation by a psychiatrist in order to be sure that this is not a mental disorder of some sorts. Only a specialist can help you in this situation. It is unlikely to be due to a brain tumor especially if you have already had a MRI of the brain done. ...Read more
Feeling a little better, seen my doc today about hearing a males voice in my head repeating the same word over and over. Related to panic attacks?
Loud indistinguishable screaming voices in my head accompanied with strange feelings in my head and body. What are the possibilities of a brain tumor?
Low but not zero: Sounds as if you are having auditory hallucinations and while I couldn't definitively rule out a brain tumor simply based on what you've said, my opinion is that it's not as likely as other diagnostic possibilities. Nevertheless, I think a solid neurological examination and an imaging study of the brain are well worth the trouble. All the best. ...Read more
Otitis media after a virus w/mixed hearing loss. Fluid is gone. I can hear outside noises better than my voice which sounds faint in my own head. Why?
Mixed Hearing Loss: A mixed hearing loss means that there is both conductive hearing loss (related to the ear drum or middle ear bones or space) and sensorineural hearing loss (nerve damage). The fluid in the ear causes the conductive loss, so if the fluid is gone, there might be some residual sensorineural hearing loss. You should probably get this checked out with a hearing test to make sure. ...Read more
