This happens to me all the time (I feel like my limbs are changing sizes to football pitch lengths). It's called proprioception or kinesthesia.Hello all, newcomer here. Dave, dealijg with depression, pipolar, anxiety, and others along with physically breaking down at 50. I have an even t that occurs periodically and infrequently but can be very distressing at times. I call it an inner body experience where my consciousness shrinks down to a place in my skull and I see through and out the eye as though looking through an eye 20ft tall. I feel like a tiny person standing in my head. My hand feel gigantic as do my fingers and they are very far away at the ends of my very long arms. I want to research it but cannot put a name to it. Thank you!
Mine may be related to old head injuries. I'm also of a similar age. I have a neurologist, but unless something shows up on a CT-scan or MRI they don't tend to do much in the way of treatment.
It's an unusual presentation of proprioception that I've only regularly seen on this website! Most presentations seem to think the outside world has changed size, so seeing other accounts on this page has been reassuring. PTSD, head injuries, migraines, the pandemic, etc.... makes figuring this out tough.
Useful has been trying to put together a complete medical history. Unless you've had the same doctor for your whole life, your medical history will be wildly incomplete. None of those analogue records will be in your file.
