Has anyone here experienced Alice in wonderland syndrome?

From when I can remember I have had episodes of seeing objects in different dimensions and I was not sure where to focus. Things, especially people appeared far away and very small. Sometimes kids in my class appeared like dolls. I felt I was too big for the room and I was in a dollhouse. It was extremely annoying.

The last time I experienced it was March 2010 at work. My supervisor asked me to come with her outside of the office. We were standing in the hallway and she was writing me up. She started talking and all of a sudden she appeared tiny and the hallway was misshapen. I couldn't focus at what she was saying and I kept on looking away hoping that if I look away I will be able to focus again. It didn't work. Also, I had to stop looking away because it won't look good. I was desperate for her to stop talking. It seemed like forever.

Is this normal?

Probably not normal, or at least not conducive to a functional work life. Talk to your doctor about it!

Thank you both for your reply. I have had that from when I was in middle school. I used to have this almost daily, and as I got older less frequently until only once in a few months. Next week I'll see the doc and ask him when I was started on Seroquel. I wonder if it coincides with when I stopped experiencing those distortions.

Also, my 15 year old son has told me a while ago that he sees things smaller and that he doesn't know where to focus. Its hard to tell the distance of the object because the size is so distorted.

My response? "Its normal. I had it too." Thats what I thought. What specialist should he see? Neurologist?
