The context is like "He'll probably think I'm crazy." The expressions I see mostly are 頭がおかしい and 気が狂う. I've also seen イカれる be used, but I've heard that's really slangy. Are there better expressions to use than these and is there a difference in nuance between these expressions?

    What meaning of crazy are you asking about in particular? Actually mentally ill? Or perhaps, not literally mentally ill, but out of control or extremely agitated? Something else?

  • Sorry for not clarifying. Not mentally ill but like someone is overly worried or paranoid about something and someone makes a comment like "quit being so crazy."
