  • Hi i have experienced these exact same symptoms as you in the past and i managed to get of them. It is known as depersonalization / derealization disorder and its caused by your body being bombarded by too much anxiety and its a way of the brain trying to cope. The way to get rid of it is by not panicing about the symptoms and just ignore it and eventually it will start to subside (easier said than done i know i've been there myself) but that is the only way and you will feel normal again. I had an mri scan for this reason as i was convinced i had a brain tumor but all was normal. Hope this helps.

  • Anxiety can have a massive effect on the body. I'm going through it myself.. aches pains numbness pins and needles.. twitches all sorts. It's soo bad... :(

  • Yes I've read up that I have depersonalisation but I honestly feel so numb and out of body it's so scary
