neurological problems/disease?

1588 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  Idris
My DR came on suddenly but mildly and got worse after a couple months of me thinking it was "just anxiety". Since then I've found it hard to leave the house without someone with me in fear that I will get lost/have a panic attack. When I leave the house I feel like I'm walking around in a fog; places I've been (even my own neighbourhood) seem foreign to me even though I DO know where I am technically, it feels unfamiliar and it scares me.

I'm waiting for an MRI and EEG to make sure it's not something physically wrong with me. I got a CT scan and it came out fine. Has everyone here gone through medical tests with nothing or something wrong? I'm worried it's something neurological.

Sorry if this has already been asked/inquired about.

Yeah, that's what I am worried about - seizures. although I thought with them you usually "lose time" or black out. I don't tend to do any of those things.

My doctor also told me that DR can be a symptom of neurological problems and they should always be ruled out before assuming it's psychological. So I hope most people do get checked out before assuming, like I did.
