    Yeah the foggy and almost spaced out feeling is quite common I'm afraid with anxiety. Like you it never really goes away, although it does when the anxiety is better managed. Just one of those lovely anxiety symptoms I'm afraid

    Hi Dizzy, this has been a constant feeling for me now for the past 5 months, I'm hating it! For me it's like a woozy and muffled feeling with a dull headache for me too which sometimes develops to a full blown one and my eyes feel strained and heavy. It's causing the anxiety to heighten too, I can't understand how anxiety can give us constant physical symptoms even when we're not feeling particularly anxious sad I've had blood tests to rule out anything medical, all negative! I'm starting counselling soon so hoping to have some relief pretty soon. Let me know if you find a cure! Xx

    Hi,

    Yes that is what it feels like and do you also get a feeling as if your not totally here like every thing seems blurry in your head ?  That's what I get, it's horrible, also unbalanced feeling

      I can really identify, the feeling of not being there totally is depersonalisation, its super common, not at all serious but really distressing, its plagued me for a long time

      Hi. I just found this group yesterday and started responding hoping to talk to someone. There are still people on here so you will be happy you chimed in. I've had SUCH a foggy/full feeling/heavy head for months. I kept thinking it was because I was either hungry or tired or getting a head cold. I was so glad to hear that it's actually because of anxiety. Yesterday I had a horrible day with anxiety and not only did I have my foggy full head but all of a sudden my head was pounding so hard it felt like it was going to explode. I remembered that I had a few xanex and I took one of those and went to lay down . Within 20 mins my head was clear aND not pounding. I know that my head fog is associated with stress and anxiety .
