At work, I've noticed that colleagues nudge others

Resolved Question:

At work, I've noticed that colleagues nudge others colleagues and I've discovered it's because I seem to 'zone out' and realise I have when I come out of it and look at them.
I'm guessing I must have always done this, but it's concerning that people notice. I thought it's what everyone does, but I'm assuming mine must be so frequent/noticeable that others notice too.
I would appreciate some input on this. Thanks

Hi, I am female and I live with my partner of 7 years.
I het migraines about 2 or three times a month and take naratriptan to stop attacks and this works.
I have also, recently, been prescribed 40mg×2 Propranolol to help prevent migraines but this medication was only prescibed 2 weeks ago and the instances have been occuring for a lot longer than that.
I dont feel this has anything to do with my eyes. I wear glasses for reading and had an eye test last month.

Thank you for that additional information.

What does your partner, a person who knows you very well, think about this zoning out and looking at other people?

Also, do others seem to react or mention this activity of your to you?

He says I can 'daydream' sometimes. Friends have said it too.
Expert:  wieyedoc replied 3 months ago.

From what you, your friends and your partner have noticed this does not seem to be anything to worry about.

Have you been talking to The Evil Dr. Google and become worried that this is a brain tumor, some rare and fatal neurological disease or metabolic imbalance?

Because, from what you have posted I do not believe that this is the case.

I do not feel you need to get a huge workup, a MRI of your brain or anything like that....
It sounds like this is just part of who you are as an individual....and I'd not give it a second thought.

Does this make sense to you?

Lol. No, I dont have a habit of Googling symptoms; it just concerned me because I think I was unaware it was so obvious.
Thank you for your response.

Good....well, don't get into the habit of talking to that dude! ;)
