please help me..i feel like i’m going insane.

i don’t really know where to start..i have this constant feeling of panic..i feel like i’m not in my body. or anything’s real sometimes..when i walk i feel delayed..or when i speak it doesn’t feel like it’s me doing it. i feel like i’m behind glass..and i question everything..my head has so much pressure and i get this feeling that i’m constantly spinning. like not things around me, just me. but i’m not. or that i feel like i’m falling.

my heart beats really fast sometimes..and it gets really hard to breathe..sometimes i feel like i can’t move..and i just stare off and it really scares me..

sometimes it feels like my brain is sore. and it really hurts.

and sometimes i feel like i’m high..like nothings spinning and i’m not seeing things. but i feel just really slow and delayed :/

whenever this goes on..i try to hide it but it really scares me.

i’m only 16.

does anyone know what this could be..?

if you do please..i feel like i’m going insane..this is one of my biggest fears..

Try Googling depersonalisation and derealisation. These are both common and symptoms of anxiety. Fear not; they WILL pass.

Usual advice: get checked out medically. Do it! But yes, anxiety can cause symptoms such as those you describe. The mind and body are intimately linked.

The symptoms ARE frightening. I know. But they are not necessarily a signal that you are going mad. Lots of us have had similar (depersonalisation etc) and they do moderate. Just hang on in there.

Sure. The programs for moving parts of the body are burned deep into the unconscious mind. If you start to use your conscious mind to try to perform these functions you are bound to slip up and get confused.

do you ever feel like you’re going crazy, but like..you’re conscious is still there and you notice what’s wrong. because that’s what makes me panic.

It’s ok no need to panic

I’ve had that a few times, it’s very scary as it feels like ur in another life!

Just do breathings and try distract urself from thinking about it, it still go away slowly and u will feel urself.

It’s part of anxiety as it’s horrible I hate it but u have to accept it that u have anxiety or it will just go round in circles looking for a reason!

it makes my neck and head really tight. like it’s hard to move, and it’s mad scary. because i keep fading in and out of my mind. like i’m blacking out, but i’m not. and it’s really scaring me.

U keep thinking of symptoms around ur body, it’s anxiety that cause it all

Just don’t panic as it make it worse... it will ease off trust me... the more calmer u are the more ur mind calms the anxiety

Best medication is go for a nice walk and look at small specific things, breathing the nice fresh air and u feel much calmer..

also it’s hard while we going thru this pandemic which tops it up!!

Stay safe

I have problems with sanity. Might be PTSD
