    Yes alot of time you get it when your not feeling anxiety but as long as you have anxiety your always have the symptoms even though you feel good sorry you feel like all crazy and weird i hate that feelin also its very scary and when i feel like that i sometimes go to the ER because it just doesn't fit normal hope you feel better

      Hi antsy thanks for being helpful i dont feel so alone and like im going crazy. Your right its so hard not to be fearful of it cause its so in your face i cant not think about it. Cause we have it 24/7 does this mean its not part of the gad cause I read somewhere that depersonalization and derealization usually happens during a panic attack but im having without the actual panic attacks

      When it hits me i get a overwhelming feeling of needing urgent help everything i look at seems off in some way but I cant explain how, i kinda feel like my body is floating when i see my hands i think there not mine though I know they are my hands I feel I cant connect to my life people and my feelings feel odd and not right to me kind of foreign to me , my vision goes strange like tunnel vision it feels sort of luke deja vu but not also things feel unreal or dreamy like a movie when i get those feelings bad i get strong urges to go to er because I honestly think that this can't be from anxiety its to horrible and full on to be just anxiety. My main fears when its strong is im going to lose my mind or I may lose control of my actions and I panic that this is going to last forever and ill never feel normal reality ever again. I hope you can relate and I dont spund completely nuts lol

      Yes when it gets really bad i feel breathless even when I.feel 'normal'

      I can feel breathless its very scary i also get very hot and my heart feels like its beating hard, the depersonalization and derealization is the worst feeling ive ever had its so scary the worst thing is theres nothing you can do about it and even going to the er wouldn't really help i think thats what bothers me the most is the trapped feeling it feels like your minds failing you and its shutting down but I keep telling myself that its anxiety and wont hurt me and will go away once my anxiety calms down its that hard to accept but thats all we can do and be strong one day we both will look back on this and we'll be a stronger person cause anyone thats deals with this is a strong person
