Disconnected feeling

Been feeling disconnected lately. Very alone even though I know I’m not. Also been dealing with that fuzzy/dizzy hard to focus on one thing feeling which also makes my legs feel like jelly. I know it’s my anxiety as the doctor said I’m a perfectly healthy 39yo. I go for a checkup every 6 months. Is there anything you guys do to fight this feeling?

Hi Ffightereng3, haven't seen you on for a while. I don't get that fuzzy/dizzyheaded feeling much any more but when I do that is a sign for me that I am dehydrated. Sometimes drinking a full glass of water will clear my head. As well as doing some quiet "me time" to meditate and deep breathe. So many times when we are stressed or anxious, we tend to shallow breathe w/o even realizing it. Taking the time to put our

breathing back in sync can make both our mind and body feel better. :)

Chrispal, Sorry, I was out today. I got off Xanax/Ativan over 5 years ago and just taking Lexapro. But I do daily meditation/deep breathing 3 times a day if not more.

Did you have side affects from the meds .. the dr prescribed me zoloft but I am scared to take it.

I did not have any side effects, however I was in the hospital at the time they started the medications. They were better able to control the dosages, trial and error. I was always afraid to take meds, as most of us are. I have no complaints about Lexapro, for me it's been a good drug short of dry mouth. xx

I get this too and I have noticed that when I drink water it eases up. I think I have low blood pressure in the morning and dehydration. Drinking water has helped.

Hi, yes- to fight this feeling you do the opposite of fighting- You lean into it. Embrace it. Find it interesting, curious, funny, weird, but definitely not scary.. It is most certainly harmless and just another part of anxiety :) And fighting it makes it more intense. Fighting is a fear-based response. Anxiety senses a fight and says, "that's my job- here's some more adrenaline so you can fight this thing!"

Interesting how anxiety works :)

Check out the links on my profile! They all include information on these symptoms. And how to recover! My favorite is Claire Weekes but they are all excellent.

Feel better!

How do you explain this symptom because mine has been going on for a week non stop? Has this ever happened to you?

Yes. It is normal for the circumstances. It is nothing to fear! The nervous system gets sensitized from lots of anxious brooding, and the resulting feeling is what you are experiencing. It is extremely common. Take a look at the posts here and you will see frequent dizziness, detachment, feeling unreal, floating "out of body" etc. The nervous system is pretty amazing. But it is all harmless, unimportant. Live alongside this feeling as though it isn't there. Practice accepting this feeling and all that anxiety brings and it all settles down quite nicely. Please do check out the resources I list! They will help take the mystery out of this feeling and all symptoms of anxiety. It's much easier to practice acceptance of these feelings/symptoms when the mystery is gone.

Does yours come with weak legs and feeling as you are being pushed when walking it’s sonhard to explain... like as I’m walking I feel like I am being pushed from the back to actually walk... legs feel heavy such a horrible feeling.

They're are so many different aspects to anxiety, it's like a chameleon. also it can attach itself to other medical conditions. I get fuzzy headed when my blood pressure drops,I am 6" 3 when I stand up to fast it drops.But I am also a Type 2 Diabetic and while that usually means high blood sugar, we can have sugar crashes too where I get very fuzzy headed sweaty and feel like I may pass out ( fortunately I always carry glucose tablets for that reason) You might want to check with your regular doctor to make sure everything is ok. I have enclosed some information about anxiety for you bit.ly/2IMhI62. Prayers that all works out for you.

I was like that for months then finally my Dr found the right med. 10mg of Prozac and 25 mg of metropolo. I know that's spelled wrong. Then I would just float through life and finally it went away. Hope this has passed for you.
