Anyone feel weird ALL THE TIME?
Hello everyone,
Just want to know whether anyone else here feels strange 100% of the time? I know that when you have panic attacks you can get numbness and tingling and headache......... but i seem to have it most of the time, pretty much all day. I just feel like im in a dream all the time, im scared all the time, does anyone else get this?
I took myself into ER earlier today in the hope that someone could help but they didnt even examin me, they just said to go home and calm down, why cant they just reassure me? Am i really going crazy?
Thnks again.

Feeling "strange, not with it, day dreaming, unreal like in a dream" is called derealization. It is very common within people who suffer with anxiety. And the only way to overcome it, is to accept these strange feelings. Your brain is doing this as it cannot cope with more worry and stress. And the more you stress the more it will stay around. Take it from someone who suffers from it. A blocked nose is a symptom of a cold, this is simply a cold of anxiety. And the more you just think ya know what who cares if I feel wierd and not there because nothing ever happens anyway, the quicker your brain will realise you don't need it there. Buy a book called "at last a life" by paul david. Helps me so much and I would highly recommend it!! Hope this helps xx

Hi,

I feel and felt the same before i think its when your not feeling fullfilled. The thing is somethings we need to accept that our lives are not always going to be fun great exciting and also sometimes we will have long periods of happiness and some long of saddness. Maybe seperate all the different areas of your life and rate each from 1-10 the areas your least happy with work on and then hopefully you will naturally realise these things actually make you happy... nothing can ever take your happiness away, its within you, just do the things that bring it out more ;)

I am very glad I'm not alone. Just recently I started to feel really dizzy. It was like my vision was messed up. I was afraid to leave the house because I didn't want anything to happen to me. I finally went to the doctor and my blood work came back normal. He just said my cholesterol was a little high and my vitamin D was low. So I've been watching what I eat and taking vitamin D3 everyday. Also have been experiencing some teeth problems so I'm constantly in pain. Being a hypochondriac I always though the worst. My girlfriend has to reassure me constantly that I'm not dying and that I don't have a brain tumor or anything. My grandma died because of a brain tumor so I guess subconsciously I've always been afraid to die that way. And then I started to get dizzy and my vision was messed up and I just automatically assumed the worst. Also, Googling stuff on the internet does not help at all it just makes it worse. Maybe I'm just making myself feel this way because I keep thinking about it. But as of now I'm unemployed and I am constantly in the house watching tv or on the computer. So I don't know if maybe I'm dizzy because I've lost contact with the outside world. I forgot how it feels to be out and be a normal 23 year old and it really *****.

Hi bobby, I have been feeling this way for the last couple of weeks.  Along with these sensations are also nausea and I just don't feel good AT ALL.  You did a good job describing it though, it does feel like drugs or alcohol even if you're sober and have nothing in your blood stream.  I kind of feel dazed, you?

I am a severe hypochondriac, worrying all the time about every single symptom that I have. Drove me nuts. Spoke to a web psychiatrist through this clinicalfellows.com site, and it actually helped. This female doctor gave me insight into my feelings. Hopefully what she said will last!

Yes.  When I'm not sad, I have my moments of happiness even giddiness.  Then it turns to anger about those who've hurt me in the past.  Then I get truly uncomfortable, feeling like I don't have a place in the world and that I'm the weirdest freak who ever walked the earth.  It's all just a trick of anxiety.  I was verbally abused by an Aunt growing up(she still does) aand always made to feel like I was a villain, even though I was a good girl.  I was never as good as her daughter and as far as she's concerned, I never will be. It's the anxiety itself.

Hi: Your definitely not alone. I feel exactly the same as you.I use to love my job and was very content with my home life. Woke up one day and doc told me I have anxiety and treated me for depression even though I wasn't depressed still not depressed. I walk around alot feeling numb and out of sorts,I've tried everything exercise,yoga just keeping busy to no avail. I don't know your whole situation but for me you see I can't afford a therapist so I have to do this without alot of help.I've done and still doing recognitive therapy but not finding it helps alot. I hope you have better luck finding help whether its medicated or by therapy. I'm gonna keep an eye on this site because sometimes I feel like I'm losing my marbles

WOW I am it the same vote I'm not anxious all the time but my anxiety symptoms are with me all day every day.

I have had so many test done on my head heart stomach it is not funny and its cost me allot of money all to find out I'm in pre much good health other then a few lil things that will not kill me.

I just have a hard time with the symptoms as thy do not let up thy are with me when I'm in a good mood bad mood it doesn't matter and that makes me think that there is something more than anxiety wrong with me

As I'm reading these posts ... I'm reliving my experiences.

Anxiety and stress are horrible.

I would suggest those that are suffering from dizziness and nausea and things to have an MRI and check for Chiari malformation.

I had 3 MRIs (spanning 10 years), all showed chiari but not until last week did a neurosurgeon diagnose me.

If you're anxious about the MRI ... Here's words of encouragement. I was terrified. I had mine at hoag on their ESPRIT (sp?) machine.

I requested their largest one.

I've had the smallest hole MRI and a total open MRI.

The large hole MRI I just had was very very comfortable. I took 1.5 mg of Ativan an hour before.

When they put you in the tube, you don't even go in waist deep. I could feel the opening with my hands and see out easily.

The stronger the magnet (3Tesla up to 10 Tesla), the shorter the procedure. Mine was 25 mins.

I was terrified before. Relieved when I saw the machine.

Anyway ... Just a note to encourage those who aren't getting answers.

I had my PCP tell me for years it was just anxiety. While anxiety is contributing, maybe it's the chiari causing my symptoms?

I also feel like I'm going to die at least 1 time throughout the day... crazy cause I'm on elevil as Lexa pro had to many side effects. But now I see a therapist who has me believing I can beat this thing called anxiety. It's OK to take aantidepressants I hate being alone stay at home mom. Worst fear having a seizure or stroke and no one there but my kids and me.

Sounds like me, I've been to heart doctor he says I'm fine, gp says I'm fine. But I'm not, I just don't feel right and I'm freaking out over thoughts of bad things happening. I take Ativan to stop it, but I'm taking everyday. Cause I can't stop them by myself. Help

Yes, I am 52 years old and had that feeling after smoking pot when I was 18 years old.  It always comes back it different times of my life and really hard to beat.  I am going through it now again. I found that Lexapro in the past has helped me, but now I am not able to take lexapro due to it causes vaso constriction in your brain I had to go off of it.  I would never smoke pot again it ruined my life by knowing this unreal feeling. I am currently taking Klonipan at night only 2 night on it. Makes me tired all day and I feel no betther. Just praying this feeling will go away. Good luck to you, and it's definitely an anxiey thing happening.

hey I've been feeling really weird for about 4 months now it all started towards the ending of June when I got really dizzy. My dizziness lasted about 2 weeks during that time my girlfriend gave birth to my daughter on July 2nd. I also lost my sense of taste for about a week and a half. Since then I went to the doctor to get my ears cleaned out (had a lot of impact wax) that was probably causing my dizziness. For the last 4 months I've been battling day and night with a feeling of being detached from myself also feels like I'm walking around 24/7 in dream world. It really ***** cause I feel like my daughter never really got a chance to meet her father the fun wacky loving person I was before all of this. also I have strange thoughts that I'm losing control like I really flipped my wig I know its ridicules but sometimes these symptoms does get the best of me. Will I ever get my old self back???

Meditation can help a lot .You don`t have to be into buddhism. With meditation you sit in a quiet spot and try to just think about one thing.If it is a flower just close your eyes and just think about that one thing and all the good things about it .Buddhist philosophy is also good and calms the mind.

I am new here, but so glad I found yall.  I have been reading posts and I am glad to know I am not the only one.  I have been having headaches for almost 1 year, progessively getting worse.  I finally went to the doctor and he put me on Methocarbamol and Meloxicam together.  After 2 days of taking them,  2 hours after taking another dose, severe panic set in.  It lasted off and on for 24 hours.  I called and he reduced the dose by more than half.  2 hours after meds again, a panic / anxiety attack happened.  this one less severe, but still 24 hours long.  I have stopped the meds, but am just not back to normal.  head in a fog, just dont feel right.  sometimes I feel as if my body doesnt belong to me. some nervousness and anxiety I think,  I feel like I just cant shake this.  As long as I stay super busy, I feel somewhat normal, but the moment I slow down its back.  I havent been able to work or concentrate and I do feel like I just cant live this way the rest of my life.  Does this sound like an anxiety issue continueing or am I loosing my mind??  p.s.   the bloodwork, ct scan, etc. says Im fine.   PLEASE HELP.

Episodes of a (or even a constant) weird dream-like state can be caused by temporal lobe epilepsy. Luckily, my mom had these same type of seizures I did, and I start telling her about them as soon as I had the vocabulary to describe it and was medicated for it by the age of 14. My mom, though wasn't diagnosed correctly until her early 40s and, because of the lack of treatment, now has several severe autoimmune diseases and all sorts of other medical conditions that have taken over her life. Temporal lobe epilepsy can also cause all sorts of mental, physical, and emotional effects that can be easily misdiagnosed by even the best psychologists and doctors.
