Are occasional hallucinations, visual and auditory, cause for concern? They've been happening more frequently lately if that's important.
I suffer from confusional arousals during sleep with occasional hallucinations. Sleep study was normal. What can I do to fix this?
Consider an analogy:: Your car engine knocks and misses at certain speeds. Your mechanic can't find anything wrong. What can you do to fix this? How can you "fix this" if you don't know what's broken? Options: 1) Get another test. 2) Get another mechanic. 3) Get another car.

Occasionally I see spiders when I wake up, falling asleep, or really tired. Could this be hypnagogic hallucinations or am I crazy?

Would a person having a hullucination believe it to be real to be a true hallucination or could they know they are hullicinating?
Hallucinations: A person hallucinating may be aware that s/he's hallucinating. I know many schizophrenic patients who recognize that their hallucinations are exactly that.
