Brain fogginess not feeling myself help me please

Posted , 4 users are following.

On sunday when I was trying to sleep I started feeling off but nothing too serious. The next day on monday I went to school and I was fine around 1:40 pm when I was studying I started losing focus and I felt like I was zoning out on people and started looking at them to see if they were really around me. I breathed and calmed myself down then I started shaking my lips started to shake I went home and my brain just wanted to sleep. I don’t feel myself I feel like theres pressure on my head its hard to concentrate my body still does things the way it usually does I can still talk to people and everything but I feel weird and not myself and I feel too calm and careless at times I feel weak. I feel like theres a bubble in my brain that needs to be popped so I can snap out of this feeling! Please help me Im only 16 and I keep havinng fearful thoughts that im going to stay like this and feeling this way. Same thing happened to my sister and it started last week for her and she still doesnt feel like the way she was before. we’re not depressed or stressed about anythig we’re always happy and doing things and listening to music.

    You need to talk to your GP, it sounds like Anxiety and you may need help, however medications could effect study

    Make a list of your concerns and make a double appointment with your GP, the list will help you explain your feelings and concerns. It may be all the studying you are doing, you could try Breathing Exercises you will find explanation on the Web. That may calm you

I feel too calm, careless, weak , my brain just wants to sleep.  I dont feel like myself when I look in the mirror I dont see myself the way i used to be

      When I was at College many years ago I would become nervous. Sometimes like you I would be very calm and some would say cold, I had to travel to work on the bus a long distance and would miss my stop because I felt empty and exhausted.

      You need time to relax especially if you are overworking, sometimes studying can make our work less efficient, if possible take time off from your finals, that should help your concentration

    Heya Larden,

    So many people on here empathise with what you're going through. Mine started at about your age as well and i was so scared at the time, you will make full recovery, but need to monitor your physical and emotional health. Something I was never too brilliant at doing. Trust me when I say this never did any actual harm to anyone and is a temporary illness like anything else. But, you need to go easy on yourself. You say you're not stressed but school is a stressful time, I wouldn't want to go back to that era. I have recoveries and relapses over the years but I have not always been very good to myself, given the reality of the condition. But, through those experiences you become aware of the temporary nature and how recovery is achieved (time + ingrained knowledge that nothing is really wrong + not giving a f*** as much as is possible)
