I have been suffering from DPDR for about 3.5 years. It has been like a rollercoaster. This summer i felt a bit better with less intense DPDR episodes. I think the sleep and the sun helped alot. Now its been about 3 weeks I started having these intense DPDR episodes and i wonder if it was because of work? To be honest I have been a bit stressed the past 4 weeks due to work deadlines (also alot of emotional pain such as lots of negative thoughts, anger, and sadness).
At first i thought it was due to this mental exhaustion- like i mentioned above. But then I start thinking how is it possible that after 4 weeks to have such intense dpdr? Back in 2017/2018 i was much more anxious, i had horrible dpdr, i thought i was going crazy, visual problems as if i would see the world through a glass and i had insomnia on top of that. That time i was sure my dpdr was caused by severe anxiety and insomnia. Now anxiety is less present and i m sleeping without any problem so i should not be having these intense episodes of dpdr.. i started thinking there must be something else. Then i remembered 3 weeks ago i got sick and i had these pressure pains in my head. I have regular sinus problems which give me horrible headaches. Now thinking about it, would that be possible to have dpdr cuz of sinus problems? Is anybody else experiencing the same?
