At first i thought they were only a split second.

I have seemingly random episodes of "blipping". Its like when your lights flicker in your house because too many things are on, or like a slow flip book. I call them "flickering invisible memories". theyre kind of like walking through a room with a strobe light on, but instead of darkness inbetween theres nothing. Like a very short jump. Very short. At first i thought they were only a split second. I found out theyre more like 3 seconds long. Over and over for a bit and it stops. The kitchen is the place it happens most, almost every time i walk in i "blip".

Welcome to e health forum.

It is difficult to assess the cause of your symptoms just based on your history provided.

Your history could be indicative of normal reaction to physiological stress or due to conditions like thyroid disorders, anemia, other endocrine disorders,etc.

Psychiatric conditions like chronic fatigue syndrome, autoimmune disorders, etc can also be possible causes.

It would be best that you consult a doctor and seek a proper medical opinion.
