Quote from KellyB:My name is Kelly, and I am a 28 year old female living in Ontario. I work full time as an administrative assistant in a counselling office (ironically
For a year and a half now I have been feeling "spacy" -it's a rather subjective thing to try to define or explain to a doctor, but the best descriptions I've been able to come up with so far are that I feel like I am always stoned on cold medicine, or like I have the feeling you get when you're sick with a bad cold and say you feel like you're walking around in a dream. I am always tired, would love to just sleep all day, and am suffering from depression (not sure if it's because of the spaciness, or the other way
around.) I have also gained a significant amount of weight (partially, I realize, due to poor diet and lack of exercise, but it still seems excessive to me.) To date I have had many appointments with my family doctor, and have also seen an ear/nose/throat specialist, a hematologist, a rheumatologist, a neurologist, had a colonoscopy because of my constant loose stool/diahrrea (and I believe I have been officially or semi-officially diagnosed with IBS), had an upper g-i series, had my vision checked, had umpteen blood tests performed, had a head scan, have seen a counsellor on several occasions, have ceased taking birth control pills - in case they might be the culprit - and am currently taking Zoloft (tried Celexa before) for depression, as well as Lorazepam occasionally as needed. I'm also probably forgetting to list some of the specialists and procedures, since there have been sooooo many. The most recent appointment I've had was for an EEG, the results of which came back totally normal.
My question to you is, do any of you suffer from this "spaciness"? Could it be attributed to stress/anxiety/depression? Is there hope that I could overcome this (I am beginning to lose hope myself)?
I really look forward to hearing from you.
Thanks for your time,
This is exactly the symptoms I have, i have just started prozac. are you still suffering from this?
