Hi doctor, ive suffered with anxiety for years on and off. Been feeling really well for nearly a year. Ive suddenly started feeling very spaced out and strange like im not in my body and its scaring me alot. Im convinced im going to die. Been speaking to a doctor on here but id appreciate your views aswell?
Its been about a week now. Ive been taking sertraline around a year. About a month ago the dose was reduced from 100mg to 50mg. Its so hard to describe the feeling, its like im sitting but im not in my body, im convinced im going to die any minute and just dont want to do anything just feel really scared
The doctor reduced it because id been well for a while. Im finding it hard to do anything even something as simple as making a cup of tea. What do you think is wrong with me?
Do you really think so? Im so scared. How can i feel so terrible?
How do you know im not dying?
Is spaceyness a sign that you are going to die?
I have felt like this before just under a year ago but i always think it feels different. When i look back to conversations ive had i always mention this feeling.
What would happen if i was dying?
If not anxiety what else could the spaceyness be?
Ive had quite alot of bloodwork done already as im pregnant. Would any problems have been picked up in this?
Ok i wish i could describe how i feel better but its hard to explain. Its like im sitting but im not in my body and im floating away
Ok im sorry for going on and on just hate feeling like this
Just finally would i have other symptoms if i was going to die?
Thankyou, everyone tells me the same thing but i struggle to believe it. Its absolutely awful. I feel like im the only person in the world that feels like this and theres no way out
Ok ill try my best to do that.
One thing i didnt mention. My legs feel weak and its like im not in control of my body..
Is this also anxiety?
Yes that's just anxiety. Let me know how it goes for you Rosie
My heart is now racing and i really feel like im going to die. What can i do? Ive spoken to emergency doctor but cant so anything for me till my gp opens again
