This is called drealization. Do not DO NOT look up what it is. It is just the mind's way of saying it's had too much stress. It is not dangerous.

Hot flushes are extremely common in anxiety because stress changes the direction of blood flow.

It can also cause sinus build up. Message me if you want; I've done lots of research.

I experience the same thing unless I am totally focused on something or someone else. Prayer and reading about depersonalization has helped me. You are not going crazy. You are not alone and will learn how to deal with it.

My sister has this but it does not do any real harm although the experience of it is scary. I have had it also like I am in a cartoon or something. Change your focus, rest up and pray lots. She has changed so much now and very rarely happens. Don't feed it by thinking it Starve it and it will die off!! Fill your head with good things, play relaxation music and tell yourself how good you are and clever and how God made you wonderfully.

I have been spaced out for 4 yrs and I think it is a muscles in my neck causing it. Look up SCM muscle. I have been doing dry needling for it which is also something you can look up as well. The spaced out feeling has been giving me anxiety but I am starting to feel better. You can also take a blood test and have your iron, magnesium, B12 and Vitamin D checked as well. All of these things can make you feel loopy if they are not at the correct levels. I don't know if any of this is the cause but I wanted to put it out there for you and others.

Thanks for replying everyone!, yeah I keep getting it where I'll just be sitting there and I feel like I'm in a dream or like I'm not in my body it's so weird makes me panic badly!! Why does this happen :( ..

It's the brains way of saying it is too stressed. It can happen with a very small amount of anxiety. It disassociates from itself to keep you safe. It's not dangerous but it can take four times as long to be rid of then to initiate it. It leaves when you recognize it as it is and don't panic over it

I know it's well weird don't you think and wen I'm saying to people around me I feel like I'm in a dream they don't understand!! I makes me feel like I'm going to stop breathing!! Duno why, just a couple minutes ago it happened again and it's sill there the feeling of not being in reality.. Hope ur ok x

I've had it non stop for 8 months. And I'm still alive. Actually, the dream feeling went away. It's not the feeling of benign a stranger in my body. The only reason it sticks around is because many don't accept it as being harmless
