Hi,
Does anyone experience the same: everytime I walk past a certain type of tree the leaves begin to shake. Is this a common HPPD symptom, or more like a neurological/mental disorder? I know I have DP too, could this be linked? The only reason why I think I have HPPD is because of my floaters/tinnitus.
I also hear some things "louder" like the noise of the sewers or fans. I heard this could be caused by altered CNS function?
I'm gonna have an EEG in a week, we'll see if it shows something. I'm a bit worried if someone could help me..

It could just be your perception of the tree moving. HPPD is a perceptual disturbance and could make you see things like that, not like it´s any superstitious thing going on.

Ok thanks, I think I get that. So it's not considered a true hallucination if I'm aware that it's not there, right?

don't relate it to the tree and make it seem superstitious, it is that part of HPPD is that patterns (even leaves maybe) appear to shake / ripple.
