    It's a bit of a random question, but how often do you get deja-vous? Rather often I will get a really strong sense of deja-vous from things I know I have never done or experienced before. I mean the entire situation- what I see, hear, even smell, right down to where I am, who else is there and what's going on in the background.
    it's just odd I guess and I wanted to know how many other people get really vivid senses of deja-vous.

    Does anybody know how it works and why it happens? I guess it'll be something to do with long and short term memory getting confused or something?

    now and again. Had one a couple of days ago, but prior to that I hadn't had a deja-vu experience for a couple of years.

    Probably every few weeks on average. I used to get it more often when I was younger, I think. I get the impression that's quite a common experience.

    Almost every day, sometimes twice a day, when my seizures were at their peak as it was a core feature of the (simple partial) seizure. Feeling of deja vu(whether a new place or familiar place) followed almost instantly by a headache - remaining conscious throughout.

    But, apart from the seizures, not very often. Perhaps only a couple of times in my life.

    Also note that I'm not suggesting you have epilepsy. Deja vu experiences are hardly uncommon.
