Feeling like you got off an elevator

When I'm driving or ridin' in a car for longer than 10 minutes, I feel like I just got off an elevator as soon as I get out, and the feeling lasts for up to 10-15 minutes. And once again I'm new to DP, but do yall know if it's common for people with DP or DR to have these symptoms/sensations at times?

It's like a dizzy/floating feeling. It also feels like the ground is tilting. Thats what I feel like when I get off an elevator.
Alright I give up. I'm in benzo withdrawal. LOL
Yeah. Thanks for the replies. I can understand it happening during a panic attack or when I'm anxious but it happens during the kind of situation I described. I don't self monitor anymore or anything like that 'cause my derealization and anxiety subsided to where they are very mild. I hadn't had any ear infections either. I asked to see if derealization could cause it, which it probably could but from thinking about it all and from what Robbie said, its has to be most likely from benzos.
