10 Schizophrenia Symptoms

Schizophrenia, which often occurs between the ages of 15 and 30, is a rare mental disorder. It is typically characterized by hallucinations, delusions, and some other cognitive troubles. In many cases, the condition would develop slowly and become a lifelong problem. However, some people might also experience symptoms quickly and suddenly. Females tend to have signs at a slightly older age than males. In this article, we will cover some common symptoms of schizophrenia to watch for.


Hallucinations are those sensory experiences that are created in the mind and seem real. Think about if you have those moments as they might indicate the onset of schizophrenia. Common hallucinations might be auditory or something you hear, olfactory or something you smell, visual or something you see, as well as tactile or something you feel. In other words, this symptom might affect any senses on your body. For instance, people with schizophrenia might often have the feeling of something crawling on their body. Sometimes, they would even hear voices around or see someone that doesn’t exist. [1]
