    have you looked up self help stuff online? drugs dont work really so go on a web hunt. The linden method reckons it can get rid of pretty much all the symptoms including d/realisation/personalisation, but i would shop around as its expensive. has your doc referred you to a specialist?

    Your doctor really said that?? There is hope for you. I used to think it would not get better but it can. Once you accept that what you have is anxiety and not let the symptoms freak you out then thats when they cant have control of you anymore. It really works. I used to have that drunk feeling too and Im not saying my anxiety is all gone and never comes back but when it does I just try to say whatever do what you are going to do and try to move on.

    Thanks for your reply, think doctors don"t really understand how bad it is this feeling yes my doctor did say that i asked him was it anxiety says he dosen"t know what it realy is.I said what about if i go into a coma he said your trouble will be over.I can"t stop thinking the way i feel an i am scared that it is going to drive me crazy and the doctor said "yes you could go crazy if i dont stop on about it"also is it normal for your eyes to be blurred all the time i wish the doctor would tell me what it is then i would be able to get on with getting better

    Im not sure how your medical insurance works but is there anyway you can get a new doctor? This one sounds horrible. Blurred vision may mean you need glasses. Did he do blood tests? Anything?

    That's pathetic that your doc said that. You need to research self help. Please read my post on the panic disorders site. I've provided a link, but if it doesn't work its under the thread "The most effective long term Cure for Panic and Anxiety disorders and all Fears" orginally posted by Thomas3000 03.11.07

    Re: Dont think there is no hope left for me so fed up

    Hi
    I can relate to what you're saying
    I have been suffering for about 8 years now. Feel out of it all the time, lightheaded, like I am about to pass out, cold, kind of numb, dizzy, spaced out, confused, like I am dreaming, along with chest and back pains, tingling in legs, headaches, tiredness
    Had lots of tests and they keep telling me nothing is wrong, but obviously something is wrong, I just wish I knew what
    I think it helps to know that we are not alone and other people feel like this (although I wish no-one had to feel like this)
    Change your doctor and try and get referred to someone who can help
    I hope you feel better soon

    Re: Dont think there is no hope left for me so fed up

    This sounds like derealization. It is anxiety. If all the test have come back OK then you should try to work with the information you have on this. I have it all of the time. i am trying different medications/procaticing The linden Method, reading books. Sorry you are going through this believe me I understand!

    Have you had your hormones checked? Thyroid?

    Re: Dont think there is no hope left for me so fed up

    I agree, I think you need to find another doctor. Also you mentioned that
    you had a feeling of cold symptoms in your nose. My husband and I both
    suffer from sinus problems. Sinus congestion can make you feel very spacy,
    maybe that is the same as you say "drunk feeling". It can make you feel
    off balance because it affects the ears too. Since you've had a lot
    of tests, maybe you could see an ear, nose and throat specialist, or even
    an allergist to see if you have allergies. Allergies would account for the
    spacy feeling, stuffy nose and also I have heard that a lot of people with
    allergies also have anxiety. Me for one.
    I think you have to try a different avenue here and certainly a different
    doctor. Don't give up, do meditation, check out the Linden Method, work
    w/ a psychologist possibly.
    Hope you can get help but really I think you need to start w/ a different doctor.

    Re: Dont think there is no hope left for me so fed up

    tweeny.....I agree with Jodianne, first get a different Doctor! A few months ago I suffered a bout of Vertigo, which felt exactly like you described "drunk feeling". The room was spinning and I was slurring my words. I just wanted to sit on the floor! I even went to the emergency room because I didn't know what was happening. The only pre-cursor to this attack was that I had been having ringing in my ears, and my left ear felt "full", or like there was a lot of pressure. I had it checked out and my doc said I had fluid behind my eardrum. This causes an inner ear imbalance, and can bring on Vertigo. An inner ear problem can be caused by a myriad of things, so it wouldn't hurt to have this checked out if you are experiencing sinus problems. Also, Veritgo can come about through bouts of depression also....You might want to research this. Hang in there!

    Re: Dont think there is no hope left for me so fed up

    Tweeny
    Mine started at work. I just felt as though I was falling backwards off my chair, like the floor moved or something. Then I had a really bad attack of feeling faint, thought I was about to pass out or die! I was so scared, confused, spaced out. Now I just feel constantly lightheaded and ill, along with all kinds of other symptoms.
    I have had times when I have felt not too bad but the bad times are getting more and more frequent and lasting longer. Not felt ok since october 2006

    Re: Dont think there is no hope left for me so fed up

    I think what you're experiencing is probably most likely anxiety. And you know what? Even if it is something more than anxiety, treating the anxiety you're obviously having is going to make a WORLD of difference in the way you feel and how you live your life.

    First of all, you need to tell yourself this: "I am sick and tired of living my life this way. I AM going to change, I AM going to get better, and I AM going to do whatever it takes! Anxiety is not going to be the boss of me ANYMORE."

    Once you have that resolve, you need to start actively hunting for a cure. Forget about medical problems for the time being- you have seen doctors, they have confirmed that you aren't dying, so just relax in that department and consider treating ANXIETY your life's mission.

    Ask your doctor to recommend a psychiatrist. Or if you don't need a referral, just call the first psychiatrist you see in the phonebook and book an appointment. Do it first thing in the morning. Go see that doctor and tell them about what you're experiencing, and start from there. Try whatever they say and if it doesn't work, try something else.

    So that's my advice. It may not ring true to you, and that's fine. It's just what I personally would do in your situation.

    As for my personal experience, I think what you're describing sounds exactly like depersonalization. Actually to tell you the truth I've been feeling like that all day today. It happens when I'm on my period more than any other time. I feel like I have a virus or like I took a Benadryl- just really dizzy, sort of sleepy, my eyes are blurry and I have trouble focusing, shallow breathing, the room spins, feel like I'm going to slump to the floor any second, feel drunk or like I'm swimming.

    I do feel like this for days on end sometimes. Depersonalization is a symptom of anxiety and it is very common.

    For the record, these past couple of months I have been wracked with terrible dizzy spells, the feeling similar to yours along with nausea and a lot of other stuff. And I have been to the ER four times, I've had a CT scan, an echocardiogram, I've seen ten doctors including specialists, and I even was admitted into the hospital for a three day epilepsy monitoring unit. And everything is checking out totally fine. I even bought a blood glucose monitor and a blood pressure machine and have been checking them at home, but nothing is extremely abnormal.

    This has been extremely terrifying and frustrating to deal with, but the more I read, the more horror stories of people with anxiety disorders wracking up thousands of dollars in hospital bills and still coming home without a diagnosis, the more I think that maybe this is just something that happens sometimes to people with anxiety. We become obsessed with finding an answer for the way we feel, and we forget about the possibility of anxiety.
