Don't feel my self

Posted , 4 users are following.

So recently Iv been feeling really hot headed, the back of my head and neck feel really heavy and achy mixed with hot flushes. I constantly wake up with weird head sensations and it's driving me crazy. I feel so out of place in my body, I try and sleep at night but feel so disconnected it scares me. I know it's mainly anxiety and derealisation but I don't know how much longer it's going to go on and it's stopping me from living my life. I feel like I don't know what reality is or who's around me and who I amsad

P.s. I do take St. John's wort and have been for just over 2 weeks, but unsure on whether to start anything stronger.

    Hey Niamh hang in there. Speak to you Dr and also ask about therapy. I get the most awful, funny sensations in my head, I try to say to myself it's your anxiety and keep going. It starts when I wake up, but I try to keep myself busy and keep my mind occupied. Don't let anxiety be the boss, you can come out the other end a better person. The first step is asking for help, there is no shame in it, we all need help at some point in our lives. Stay strong. Best of luck.

    P.S. I 'm sure you can't take St John's wort with any other anti depressant etc.. so let your Dr know. cheesygrin

    see how it goes for a bit on the sjw if you still feel rough and want something done see a dr because what you are taking is a natural remedy and may not be curing the brain by resupplying appropriate proteins.  Get help if you think you need it.
