    Yes, this sounds like anxiety symptoms. Anxiety and panic attacks often give you the feeling that you're dettached from your surroundings. Has anything traumatic happened while you were a kid? It doesn't have to be something really scary... sometimes even losing your favourite toy, as a kid, can cause emotional trauma that if not dealt with can internalise and later manifest as anxiety.

      Its not usually as simple as identifying a trauma,that's why psychologists are skilled at what they do. Best to see a skilled therapists and not get involved with self therapy or pseudo psychology on an internet forum. Its simply not safe
