Hi,
Going to try to explain myself,
Last night I got up to get a drink, when I got to the kitchen I started to feel disoriented almost drugged.
I got back to the front room and sat down, then things started to feel strange almost like I wasn't there, I was talking to my partner but felt like I was way behind with the conversation, o then felt like I was drifting away and her talking to me was pulling me back almost out of body.
Paramedics turned up and checked blood pressure, bloods and ECG but they all showed nothing.
I have spent the day feeling better but really emotional and scared.
I am a 51 year old and never had anything like this.
Hoping someone might be able to give some insight into what this might have been ?

Hi :welcome:
Is this dissociation do you think?
It is a psychological protective mechanism, where when we are stressed or anxious or depressed, we sink in to. It is like a bubble, or seems that you are in a different place in the room, not in your body. You might feel very close or very far away.

It is confusing.

I have spoken to a Dr who ran tests again and he has put on the notes 'derealization' and has sent me for blood tests

Some people think it means different things. Who knows?

I have my own theories, we all make up our own theory don't we

That's it, sorry i used the wrong word.

Although i think derealisation is dissociation. This is very common and so other members will be here soon to talk about it.

This will be a interesting topic to discuss, i am very interested in it.

I don't know, have spent all day googling which is probably the worst thing to do.
Just hoping to get an idea of what it was
