Syndrome "Feeling of rapid movement"…when time passes too quickly

Written By Mark

Many people may suffer from days running very quickly, and accidents occurring in the blink of an eye without the slightest awareness of the value of time. This is a feeling that may have become prevalent at the present time, but this feeling has worsened sharply and scientists have diagnosed it as a disease and disorder called the “sense of rapid movement” syndrome. .

It may be difficult for someone who suffers from this disorder to describe it accurately, and its symptoms are often characterized by a confusing sense of time and place, as everything seems to move faster than it is happening in reality, which creates a conflict between reality and the ability to perceive.

Individuals with this syndrome report that movement around them seems two or three times faster, and they may find it difficult to control the movement of their bodies, which move slowly compared to everything around them.

The affected people’s perception of sounds is also affected, as they sometimes appear loud and full of noise, and at other times they are deep, as if they are hearing them from underwater.

These invisible distortions in time and sound create many problems that doctors cannot describe or diagnose and are still under study and testing.

Reasons and motives

Despite the initial diagnosis of the syndrome, researchers are still far from understanding its causes, and some believe that these disorders are accompanied by levels of anxiety, panic, and body temperature, and may be the consequences of some psychological trauma.

To better understand this condition, Joseph Mazur, professor of mathematics at Marlboro College, collaborated with neuroscientists to examine patients suffering from the syndrome. They found that their seizures usually last for a period ranging between 5 and 15 minutes, and occur between 4 and 8 times per day. the year. Some research participants said that they experience longer and more frequent attacks, accompanied by additional symptoms such as screaming sounds and severe headaches.

The researchers pointed out that symptoms often begin in adulthood, and may be atypical symptoms of migraines.

Some attribute the “sensation of rapid motion” syndrome to “Alice in Wonderland” syndrome, which is a rare neurological disorder that causes distortions in peripheral perception, such as seeing things larger or smaller than they are, including seeing parts of the body with distorted and different sizes, such as the head. Big or big hands.

It is difficult to diagnose those who suffer from “Alice in Wonderland” syndrome because it often occurs as a consequence of other medical conditions, such as stroke or tumors, and its attacks last for minutes and sometimes a few hours.

To date, researchers do not see any harmful side effects on sufferers in general, but the feeling that accompanies seizures may be annoying and oftentimes worrying if the sufferer is not sufficiently aware of his medical condition.
