It truly only is anxiety. And possibly a bit of depersonalization/ de realization which is normal when your brain is crying for a break. It's scary but the more you keep focusing on it the worse it will get. Even if I'm feeling a bit off one day I still do everything o normally would that day .. Like grocery shop or visit or even go for a jog and listen to music

My partner just said to me that It's your depression n anxiety that's why u feel as though your heads not your own very horrible experience 


Do you have any other symptoms? How long has this been going on for? 

A few things that you may want to look into - 

1. Adrenal fatigue  and thyroid 

2. Lyme disease and all coinfections (Babesia, bartonella, ehrlichia). You have to be tested by Igenex though, regular tests don't always cut it. Your doctor should be able to order an ELISA and a Western Blot. Also ask to be tested for the coinfections above. If you have 2 strains then you are positive  forget the CDC needed 3 strains rule. And you need no less than 4 weeks of doxycycline   

3. Diet - Since this is cyclical - what are you eating before bed? Try cutting out all dairy, caffeine and gluten for one month and see how you feel. 


My head feels exactly the same horrible scary experience 


Hi I went through this about a year ago same symptoms as yourself.  I believe this happens when the anxiety is overboard.  I began to take a multivitamin along with a b complex vitamin, drink  Cammomile tea every night before bed and convinced myself that anxiety will not rule me.  I feel better these days not totally cured but more in control.  Try this method it may help.  Good luck
