Weird Feeling in Head/Brain

Posted , 55 users are following.

I suffer from Anxiety and Depression. I went cold turkey off my meds which I know is very stupid. I am back on them now for 3 weeks so far but not seeing an improvement yet. I was wondering if anyone has a feeling that I am feeling. I wake up every morning with severe anxiety and feeling like I am very spaced out and not in my body. It is almost as if I am just a body taking up space. I feel like I will never get better. I have read about Depersonalization so perhaps it's that. It tends to last all day unless I don't think about it which is not very often. Could it be s brain tumor that is causing this? Is it the anxiety or Depression? How long will it take until my meds kick in. if anyone else could explain there experience if they have this that would be great. I feel like people get this but not all day.

    My daughter felt the same as you do, she is now into her third week of anti depressants and they are just starting to take effect. What on earth made you think that you had a brain tumour. it is all just part of your anxiety. Try to focus on something else apart from the way you feel, you say there are times when you dont think about it.  She used to feel very spaced out, and it is all part of the illness unfortuantely, but give your medication time to kick in and i am sure the feelings you have will go.

      Thanks Jean. I have always worried about my health so this feeling makes me think there is something wrong in my brain. It is just a very scary thing to be dealing with. I can't leave the house because I feel so spaced out and that I sm just living in a dream. I panic when I first wake up because I think I am finally gone crazy and will never get better. It's hard not to think about it because I am so worried.

      i have suffered from anxiety in the past andthen got off meds and was fine for 2 years and i recently just started getting anxiety , depression and everything, something triggered it all to come upon and build up i guess. but i panicked this morning when i woke up cause i felt the same thing u are feeling about spaced out and dream feeling, it is a really weird and scarry feeling , ive had it all day today but i tend to try to cope with it myself even though its hard and isnt completely gone but i try to be positive and calm , i tell myself everything is fine , im ok , im healthy , try to keep positive and happy things on my mind even though its hard to do that. but the more the worry thoughts and other stuff is away from u or out of your mind you will feel a little better. its a terrible feeling and terrible what anxiety , depression and stress can do do the body , unbelievible amount of things but its all mental and phsycological , so u gotta remind yourself and tell yourself everythings ok its all in my head and its not really happening.. medicine does help and yes it could take a couple weeks to kick in . rate now im dealing with it with nothing or at least trying to . and trying to stay busy and get out and do things and push threw it .

      Hi Mary, if by any chance you feel the same way, Vitamins B12 and D3 you can get this in your local drug store drink those that should help stablelize your brain back to normal I was feeling the same way for like 2months already but the vitamins have helped me a lot, doctors just want to give Prosac or Xanax and they just make you feel worse. But I hope your better already.
