Confused overwhelming mental hyperactivity feeling

Hi. I can't get a diagnosis for what I experienced. I am obsessing over this because I want to know if I might experience it again. Any suggestion is greatly appreciated.

Colors got brighter and sounds got louder. Some of them got so annoying that I had to put my hands over my ears or I had to close my eyes. My thoughts bounced from topic to topic and they got very fast. I couldn't read a sentence of a book or watch a scene of a film without losing track of what's happening in it. I had no perception of past or future but only of the present moment. This sensation lasted for nearly two weeks (getting overwhelming at night and barely bearable during the day). I felt overwhelmed, but it was very different from anxiety and even from panic attacks. The sensation was very similar to a low-dose LSD trip (I know because I have used it in the past, but it's been more than a year since I have used it). I suffer from periods of depression and occasional episodes of anxiety.

Thanks for sharing this experience. I'm sorry I don't have any idea what this was about... possibly something left over from your previous LSD use? I think this is perhaps something that would be best discussed with a medical doctor or a psychiatrist if you see one.

Default Re: overwhelming mental hyperactivity feeling

First psychiatrist said that maybe it was mania or mixed episode, but he wasn't 100% sure. The last one I've seen said that it was brief psychotic disorder (psychosis that lasts less than a month). For example the only sounds that I disliked were mechanical and electronic ones. TV felt like it was pure evil and that by listening it I damaged my mind. I started paying attention not to start arguments with anyone because if I did I believed that my symptoms would have gotten worse. I connected many previous events of my life as if they all predicted the situation I was living. Everything people said was causing a flood of thoughts that often would get very weird, as if my mind was going against me. Everything felt like a trap I couldn't escape from.
