Hi
Bare with me as I'm trying to decscribe something that I don't know what it is and isn't like anything else!
I get this wave feeling of emotion, it only ever lasts maybe a minute probably less.

It's horrible it starts deep within my chest and like a wave feels like it rises up then round. It's like a deep physical horrible pain like a feeling of death (sort of) or what I imagine it would be like.
I remember having them as a child and then the odd one maybe once a month, maybe more , maybe less I don't know. They came with a vengeance when I had my second child they went after a few month.
Now when my depression gets worse they return maybe 2 or 3 times a day.

I can't function or do anything when they happen it's like I'm suspended in the seconds that they happen until it passes. I'm worried because they are getting more frequent

So does anyone else have this???

This could be linked to depression alright but can you go into any more detail? You said you can't function when it happens, is there any dizziness with it, any confusion, or just intense sadness?

i experience it too JodieLouise, like CPU says i think it is fairly common, maybe just a part of being alive? It is horrible though and i don't blame you for worrying, it's overwhelming. Do you have any support for your depression? Maybe a referral for talking therapy would be good

It sounds familiar. And yes a part of depression. It also sounds like anxiety. The pressure, the welling up, the pain. It lasting a minute or so. Could very well be anxiety which is of course depression's favorite friend.

Sorry for your struggle.

Of late I have had some dizziness and forgetfulness but not always necessarily at the same time as this feeling
Thank you for your reply

Yes sometimes some dizziness and forgetfulness but not alway at the same time as the feeling these are exasperated on the days that the feelings are more frequent

Hi JodieLouise,

You're not alone with what you're experiencing, I feel something similar very often too.

For me I think it's linked to an anxiety build up, I always feel for want of a better description, distant while it's happening.

Apologies I can't offer a proper explanation but I know exactly what you mean.
