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.

I've had this before when i was worried about having a brain tumor. I also got it when i convinced myself i was suffering for menieres disease! it seems to crop up for me when i am going through extreme anxiety....its an awful sensation but it cant harm you. For me, i just tried to forget about it (v.hard i know), get on with things & eventually it did go away.
