  • Race: Caucasian
  • Duration of Complaint: Sometimes when eyes are closed, since the end of August

This happens when I'm lying down.  Sometimes it'll happen subconsciously, but other times I can control it.  I'll close my eyes and after a little bit of time I'll feel like I and whatever I'm lying on is moving in some direction or another.  Usually, I move back and forth on a singular axis, but I can switch what axis I'm moving on.  I rarely feel sick from it, and it's actually kind of soothing.  It seems like a form of vertigo, but I'm not sure.
Note: I got a concussion back in August and have been suffering from PCS for the past 7 months.  I still get headaches from it quite often.  I had vestibular problems when I got the concussion (To the point of walking at a slant), however I have undergone vestibular therapy and my balance has returned.

No. Normal  for the majority of us.

That is definitely not "normal." You should give your GP a call at the very least to see if an appointment with a specialist should be made.

That happens to me sometimes also when I'm stressed out the world seems to be shaking. Do you have astigmatism in your eye(s)? Perhaps the strain on the eyes results in that effect when you close them?

No, I don't have astigmatism in either eye.
