Hi. I don't speak English very well but I can't find a forum like this in my language. Please excuse my mistakes.
Would like to know if anyone here feels like me or knows something about the possible causes of these 3 symptoms:
remaining stuck with my eyes open wide without blinking;
feeling no emotions, not being able to think;
memory loss (many types and quite severe) and doing thing automatically.

Sounds like a neurological issue to me. Best to consult a neurologist.

It could well be anxiety. Do you have any anxious thoughts?

Hello

Have you ever consult a neurologist before? I think it’s a first step.....

Thank you all for your answers.

Yes, I'm a very anxious person so some of my symptoms can be caused by anxuety or exacerbated because of it.

Yes I consulted a neurologist. He though it is everything psychiatric and spent just several seconds with me. I should see another.

Hello
Several seconds 😱 OMG.
Please find a second opinion. I think psychiatric treatment for anxiety is the last thing.

Yesterday morning had a seizure (don't know exactly is seizure is the right word I simply could not move for 2 hours) with breathing broblems and involuntary eye movements.
After i barely could walk, I was feeling very weak and shaking and uncoordinated but I couldn't lay in bad it will makee more depressed than I am and I won't be able to sleep because of inactivity.

This evening I blacked out. I'm feeling quite normal but I'm dissociating. Like it was someone else doing the things I did before the black out.
It was happened like this. Something reminded me of a tragic event and got very sad, than the mental capacities slown down, after I felt sleepy and extremly tired. I tryed to rest but my mind won't relax and than I woke up feeling dissocietion and a little scared. I wasn't sleeping.. it is strange. And now I have a feeling of deja vu.

Can't go to any doctor because visits are not allowed now due to covid. But I also think there's nothing much can be done for my health so I'm trying to readjust to the current situation.
Oh and what's freaks me out is I have personality changes and memory loss and I don't believe in DID. Must be something organic.

When you saw the neurologist did he send you for an MRI . If you think you had a seizure you should definatly go to the emergency room even during the COVID outbreak they should see you as an urgent case. You need to find out why this is happening. It sound much more than anxiety

No he didn't. Said I'm weak because of antipsychotic... Didn't had money to go private to make mri.
Had seizures before and I was at emergincy i am afraid to go again as they are not that nice there. They checked my internal organs (everything was fine), but they dod not check my brain. I have no option but to go again if I will have another seizure.

Hello
I remember you. I’m so sorry to hear that. Please go to ER then insist you need them to take a brain imagery. I insisted at ER to get CT like this.

Yes I should do that I think I kind of give up. I'm also afraid.
No
It’s a seizure.... you have nothing to give up. And you don’t need to be scared. There’s a med to prevent further attack. Please ask someone to drive you to go to ER.

And don’t be anxious. It’s normal to feel strange and tired after the seizure. I had some clients who had a seizure in front of me.... so I know it.

Can these seizures be caused (also) by allergies among others? because I'm very allergic to many things even medication.

I'm going tomorrow morning because now I can't. I won't have the possibility to return home. Its complicated.. But I have depakine i can take it in case I feel another seizure coming...

I’m pretty allergic. I have to be extremely cautious when I take meds. But i have no seizure.

It’s a brain condition. It’s detected by neurological exams, blood tests, EEG, CT, MRI, PET SPECT. Please don’t be afraid. Please go to ER tomorrow. And please don’t forget to take psychotropic meds you are currently taking with you when you go there. It’ll give information to ER docs.

I don’t know about any anticonvulsant med. please be compliant for your doc’s order

Thank Catty God bless you for helping me.
You're right it's neurological but I was hoping it is not everything neurological. Hard to accept it.
