LIGHTHEADED / VISION SEEMS FAKE? In a dream.
« on: April 27, 2014, 08:40:14 AM »
I feel like im in a dream. I am so lightheaded its sickening. I dont feel like myself. Even talking with family, when I wake up from bed I feel like im not even talking or something. I feel afraid. Its been like 3 days with it. There is no eye twitch in left eye anymore, that dissapeared when I fell asleep last night. But there is a constant state of weirdness and lightheadedness. Its very hard to explain the feeling.  I feel like no one understands the "expaining of the lightheaded feeling". do you ever feel that way as well?

Why is this occurring... This is more than annoying I just took 2 mg of Xanax if that doesn't fix the problem then I must have a brain tumor

You may be experiencing derealization. I felt exactly like you feel before. It sucks. But the thing that helped me was not to focus on it so much. Go about your day. The thing w derealization is it's not harmful or dangerous so by saying " ok I feel weird and that's fine" just try to go about your day as normal as possible. Feel better.

What's going on Tater all is terrible. Hope all is well for you.

Wondering if quitting smoking a month and half ago but having one or two every three weeks like 8 total is giving me some of this feeling too. Does anyone feel scared or panic with this feeling? It's all day long lightheadedness.

Mine lasted a while... I've experienced anywhere from a few hours to a few weeks! I read this book once when I was going through this and it helped so much, I bought it on the kindle app and read it on my phone lol. It's called at last a life, i can't remember the author but I highly recommend it. Hope u feel a lil better :)

When my anxiety was at its worst I got this a lot. I still feel like I need to lean against something to support myself now and then when I get anxious because I feel like I'm going to faint. For me the derealisation has gone now but yes, I've felt exactly how you feel and it is a reported symptom of anxiety. Since you had an eye twitch and it went away with sleep, perhaps being tired due to your anxiety is causing this? Maybe try to have a nap and see how you feel.
If you really are concerned go to your doctor, though. Even if there's nothing actually wrong with you neurologically they could perhaps refer you to a therapist to help overcome your anxiety.

Hey Hun. I know exactly what you are feeling. It's called derealization. It's actually your bodies way of protecting itself. When you are anxious constantly and worry and worry your mind is on overload. So the way your body copes is to kind of shut down to protect itself. That's what causes the weird feeling. It's totally normal and common. You're gonna be ok. I've had it last for days at a time. Just gotta float with the feelings and know that they won't hurt you. If you need someone to chat with, I'm here :-)

I have had this recently too....I got it with headaches and then neck issues. It was awful and I was sure I had a tumour....they finally went...and I don't have a tumour as I don't have that or neck pain or headaches anymore. I really hope you are feeling ok now and things are starting to settle. You will get through this!!

If it helps I had a bout of derealization a few years ago that lasted 3 months straight, from when i woke up to when I went to bed. I could only explain it as if i had just taken a huge bong rip, but I felt it constantly. It was debilitating and absolutely terrifying. After a few weeks of CBT and meds it subsided and I felt back to normal. It will go away trust me, you'll be fine.
