In Topic: Physical numbness anyone?

15 November 2020 - 03:13 PM

It’s good to know you did well on your sense of touch exam as I hope this will reduce your health anxiety in the future. I would actually say I’ve experienced a slight loss of sensation that sometimes worsens when I’m anxious (especially in the facial region). It definitely freaks me out at times, but I just try and remind myself it’s just a buy product of my mental state. 

In Topic: Physical numbness anyone?

I have had physical numbness for quite some time now in conjunction with the dp dr symptoms. I find the numbness for me to be widespread throughout my whole body, but its intensity is highest in my facial region. I have had 2 MRIs and an EEG, which showed no Physical or structural abnormalities, so the numbness in itself For me seems to be more psychological in nature. I would still recommend talking to a doctor about this when you have the chance, but the body experiences weird physical symptoms when it’s under stress like you have been. So, don’t worry too much about this as we are  not the only ones with dp dr who have been experiencing this, it most likely is psychological.

In Topic: It takes me a long time to "recover" from going out.

Totally understand this.  While  social isolation is not the answer and succumbing to the grips of our mentally less taxing comfort zones is not going to help in the long run, going out and pushing ourselves does put a strain on our minds. when I go out it sometimes feels like I just came back from a short expedition to the moon, the foreign unknown feeling experienced out there continues to linger with me for a few days and eventually dissipates. Halloween parties can also be pretty trippy and that doesn’t help with the DR. This feeling will pass though, but I get your frustration.  

In Topic: people around me feel so far away

I totally understand what you are going through. This is something that plagued and consumed me at the beginning of my depersonalization. Don’t feel alone in this, and try to remember that despite the change in feeling and perception you have towards your family and loved ones, you will always love them, that has not changed, this is just a feeling, you might have to get used to it before it gets better for you. Hope this helps.
