Staring into thin air all the time is this anxiety?

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hi I suffer with very bad health anxiety and recently I keep staring in to thin air all the time it's driving me mad! I can still hear everything around me and I can get myself out of it but it seems to happen a lot and gives me headaches, does anyone else get this with anxiety?

    I get this and I rub my knees or play with my hands without noticing unless someone points it out my anxiety stems from childhood trauma so it may have been a coping mechanism to nervousness and stress that I've just stuck with
