Hi Guys,
I'm new to this site.
I am a 27 year old female... Who has had a stressful few months.

One day I had my first panic attack... The next morning I woke up numb and tingly down one side of my body...
The following days I had this strange sensation of pressure and dizziness in one side of my head.. And all my reactions felt slow... Almost like my mind and body weren't connected.. Like my brain wasn't connected to my right arm. I also had issues with initiating swallowing... It wasn't a feeling of getting stuck, it was more my reaction. And in this time if felt like my brain was in a trance or falling asleep while I was awake... Almost in a different world and id have to bring myself back to the room.

Does this sound like DP? I saw a neurologist who did a physical exam and saw no issues... But it feels like I'm drunk when I'm like this! Now it comes on daily! The anxiety is still there!

I would appreciate any replies - I'm so worried and confused x

Hi
Yes sounds dp to me you said you feel as if your body and mind is not connected and you feel drunk , sounds dp to me as I've had both these feelings with me having dp and dr .
Mine stated after panic attacks also
The best thing to do if it's just starred is just keep living your normal life and stop researching your symptoms , don't come on here it becomes your life which most likely fuels the dp so run run right away and live like normal . I've had dp over 2 years now and its now an obsession which is hard to rid myself of .
Good luck you will be ok depersonalization will not hurt you its nothing just cuts your mind off to deal with the anxiety you got.

I'll add that this forum is helpful if you feel nuts but it does become a massive habit, well to me it has
Bit tons of good people on here that do help but in my honest opinion if it's just starred for you just go live and don't come on here it will not become a obession
