Ok so I have some of the weirdest symptoms but was really hoping that somebody would be able to suggest something or how to stop it or even just to know that someone out there is like me would be very helpful! I have had this horrible 'spaced out' feeling like i am just really really far away from everything or like i'm watching the world on a TV. By the sounds of it this symptom is called derealisation and generally coms from high levels of stress/anxiety or smoking marajuana(which i have not). I do tend to get anxious at times but i don't think this is whats causing it becuase I am generally a pretty happy calm person. On a few of the days it has felt like I am literally in a dream and that im missing out on life even though i'm there and can act completly normally. The first time this started was the day after a party and I had had quite alot of alcohol which was my first time.This lasted about 5 days and then went away for about 2 months, but has come back again and this time lasting about 6 weeks and still here now!!! I wasnt drinking before it happened the second time though but it really is driving me insane. The symptoms change around but most the time I am also extremely dizzy-mostly when standing or sitting or my hands and face go slightly numb and i feel like i'm not really controlling my own body or words. Alot of the time I feel like the ground is moving up and down like a wave or tilting. Also the back of my neck sometimes aches quite badly but that could be due to lots of dancing or posture.
Can anybody help please? I dont want this to take over my life as I am such a busy person.
Might be useful to say also that I do alot of exercise, eat healthy, not on any meds, but have suffered from quite bad hot flushing in my cheeks for about a year (sometimes when I am anxious)-could be unrelated. I'm a 17 year old girl.
