Re: Depersonalisation/ Derealisation disorder
I've had this feeling big time with my VN/MAV "syndrome"; it has gotten better with time and maybe with my supplements (I take 5htp to boost serotonin). In the past I had a similar feeling when I had quite severe anxiety and depression. Prozac made it go away (along with the anxiety and most of the blues), so I feel that SSRIs can be very useful for the out-of-body sensation. My feeling is that it is a neurochemical problem. I'll bet the body could eventually sort itself out with good diet/supplements/low stress, etc., but the meds are really wonderful for it, too.
Also, I absolutely hate that feeling--it's hard to carry on normally when one feels so not normal! I'll bet yours is a by-product of the migraine mayhem...
