    Hi

    My name is Marquise and I just signed up for this site today because the Saturday before last I started to black out out of no where, my body went numb and in waves kept coming, I had really bad derealization, I felt a tingly or needle feeling coming up my throat and in my mouth. I had been sick so everyone blamed in on the flu which I found out I had a viral infection with fluctuating heart rate, slightly elevated blood pressure, and a temp of 102, but every since that day I have been suffering from derealization, constant brightness 24/7, and I've had trouble breathing and I notice I get them even worse at night. I have an appointment this Wednesday at a behavioral hospital where they think I have Chronic Panic disorder and are talking about putting me back on anti depressants, before yes I took bupropin and something else I can't remember the name and suddenly had to stop taking them because the doctor said I needed to get a regular primary doctor, I was shocked because he had told me I couldn't just "stop" taking them because I could get seizures. Anyways after one day of suffering from sweating and confusion I was fine and have been off of them for months before any of this happened. I'm also wondering if my ear problem is causing this because I have a blocked ear at the moment and I have went to WV for christmas and thats when I first started feeling the derealization and had to pull over, but it never went full force till that following Saturday at work. All I know is I'm sick of this and everyone keeps thinking i'm crazy and telling me to control it, how can I control something that's controlling my brain. It's scary and I've been suffering every. single. day. and missing so much work.

    I would wait until the doctor gives you definitive news. I had the flu so bad one time, I named it "Malaria '97". Even after the flu ended, I had dizzy spells for 2-3 weeks after the illness. There could be lingering effects of the flu - a particularly nasty strain is out this winter for some reason.

    I would bet the panic could partly be from that and the rest from stress related to going back to work. Right now, your health is more important. I would not worry about anything until your doctor talks to you.

    Welcome to the site .

    Derealisation can be caused by anxiety (ive had it). So obsessive thoughts about getting derealisation will be sure to lead to it.
