Illness or anxiety??

Posted , 4 users are following.

So for the past month my body is experiencing new symptoms that it hasn't before. It seems like it comes up with new things to worry about after another symptom goes. For the past few weeks I've been feeling really off balance.. Not particularly dizzy.. Just when I work I feel like I'm tilting more to one side of I feel like I'm not straight. Sometimes when I walk too it feels like I'm falling (I never do fall) it's just what it feels like. Ive spoke to my partner about it, and she said its my subconscious mind playing tricks on me.. It make sense but how can your brain make up symptoms? It does seem to be more present when I really think about it, I'm crying or anxious, or I'm waiting for it to occur, so maybe she is right. However I'm thinking its something serious like I always do.. I'm also experiencing Depersonalisation. Everyday I'm in a dream like state, it sometimes feels like I'm floating out of my body, I space out and stare at one particular thing which seems like ages. When I look in the mirror I also don't recognise myself.. I look like a complete stranger, someone I've never seen before, my body is also numb. it's so confusing. Does anyone else feel like this? Or is it just me?

    There is a switch in your brain that is broken it is telling you your in danger when you are not hence the anxiety/panic.

    Meds and or therapy will help to fix that switch and teach you how to cope

    Stop giving the anxiety attention that is just making it worse

    Stay Strongrolleyes

      i know jackie anxiety is hard to deal with anxiety starts in our sub conious mind you will get better but stop trying to fight your anxiety thats the first step its almost like calling a truce with you and your anxiety this sounds mad but you wont get better until you stop trying to get better start to wake up and have a positive attitude about the day negative thoughts are breeding grounds for anxiety
