Derealization?

Still feeling horrible.....

I thought I was having a heart attack yesterday but today it's derealization or depersonalization. My anxiety is so high that everything looks completely different than I know it is. I could hardly drive today. Headlights were blinding. I keep thinking I'm dying, I mean really dying! I didn't sleep last night because of this, so that may contribute to the panic being worse. Breathing is a little bit difficult too.......

  • Thats the worst. Definitely been there. Do you have any meds? I find that Xanax I can help with that. It's not real it's just your anxiety.

  • I do have some Xanax, but I took 1 yesterday and 1 a couple of days ago so I'm trying to hold off. See I used to be on klonopin for about 20 years and I've been off it for about 2 years now so I'm scared to death to get hooked on benzos again. I feel like when I use a Xanax every once in a while I feel worse the next day. My doctor says it should be fine to use only as needed but I guess I'm paranoid of addiction. I also have trouble breathing when I'm laying on my side. Too many weird symptoms I am having 😞

  • Is kind of like saying if you have diabetes you will get addicted to insulin. Obviously not exactly the same but if you need it take it.

  • Thank you so much for helping👍

  • Hello I replied to you yesterday now you are suffering from derealization and not bring able to breathe does it bring you any comfort that these are all severe anxiety symptoms and so is the feeling of having a heart attack so your heart is fine ?

    Reading your post I could feel your anxiety so much you need to do relaxation techniques if you lie yourself down and breathe in through your nose sigh out through your mouth and keep it up for at least 10 mins you will notice a difference If this happens even if it's just a small difference then that's the answer to all your problems

    You cannot be relaxed and anxious at the same time It takes some doing but keep at it and let go don't fight the symptoms

    Good luck

  • Derealization is the absolute worst! Thank you for your post. I'm experiencing this now and can not sleep at 6:47am.
