Hi let me try to make this short im a 28yr old male i have been having some odd symptoms for about 3wks i have been having problems recognizing my surroundings visually and mentally like a slow drunk feeling my hearing is odd too and i cant recognize anything kinda feels like my brain is on vacation could i have some kind of brain damage or brain cell loss? i have had tons of blood work my vit. d was 17 but doc said it shouldn't hurt anything and had a ct scan of my brain done on the 4th of this month it is now the 20th i had bad anxiety and was wanting to die about 2 weeks ago and was feeling unreal like i was not here and kinda still do for no reason and just wanted to lay in bed and i still have to lay in bed because my brain is so fogged up i cant even remember what i click on the computer and i will forget what i did 10mins ago and its hard for my brain to put 2 and 2 together and the daylight/lights bothers me could i have got exposed to some chemicals ? i don't know what to do and any input would be good. thank you
Sounds more like an emotional disorder than physical. I know no one wants to hear that but it is a reality that most of what goes wrong with a brain has to do with how we think and how we feel. Did you know that 97% of all "heart attack" patients that come to the ER are not heart attacks and that anxiety explains most of them? Whatever problems the body can have, the brain can duplicate when out of whack, emotionally.
Once they rule out anything physical, consider some counseling to see if that is the problem. Who doesn't have emotional problems there days...stress is sky high everywhere and in everyone. Just consider it.
Hi no i don't have any meds it just feels like their is something wrong with my brain like my vision prescription and memory is messed up like i cant see things in detail and i forget what im looking at or what im doing when im touching and moving things like i cant focus on my surroundings and environment like im walking in fog and cant think at all and in really confused visually everything is worse in the daylight/lights and riding in a car makes it worse.
well i have been having some odd syptoms and not sure what is wrong i have been having memory issues and feeling really out of it and not feeling like im really here and forget where i place items evan if they are in front of my face i have problems recognizing things in my vision i dont like the day light i see lots of floaters and flashes on the computer screen and in my vision and have chronic confusion and slowed mental thinking i forget what time it is i have to look at the clock to remember all i can do is lay in bed about 60 to 70% of the time i had blood work and had a cat scan done of my brain about a month ago and all came back clear im not sure if i need a different kind of scan such as a mri,pet or spect scan?
hii matt865 im a 20 year old female and for over 3 months now i had the spaced out feeling/out of it symptoms too. not so much memory problems though. i have heavy tired eyes and headaches also. the spacey feeling is the worst feeling in the world and i know what you mean when you say you wanted to die. iv done cat scan, spinal tap, tons of blood, been to a neuro, switched doctors, acupuncture, chiropractir, massage therapy and tired vitmins and supplements and nothings worked. the doctors blamed it on anxiety too so if thought i know its not i started on meds last week. have you figured anything out yet?
also if your spacey feeling all the time? mine is. never gone away once. and also did you do something at all that you think could have caused these symptoms or did they just come out of nowhere? mine happened when i went to vomit (never ended up vomiting) i was just really forcefully dry heaving and in the middle of the heaving i got the spaced out feeling and it just never went away :/ i seriously cant take it anymore so trust me i understand.
