Hello doctor,

I have been having a really strange problem for the past five months. I have been to the doctors and got some blood tests done with some CT scans as well and they told me that they cannot find anything wrong with me. So I am beginning to think that this may be a mental issue and I feel as though it is gradually getting worse.

I have a painless tight pressure that starts from the top of my eyebrows and ends at the back of my head, then I start feeling as though I am not an actual person for a moment, I feel as though I am not real. I catch myself just staring at stuff and what worsens my issue is when I look at something, I feel as though I am not really looking at that specific thing. Like right now I am looking at my screen and typing but my brain just makes it feel as though I am not really doing any of that.

I have also been very forgetful. It has gotten worse to a point where I cannot remember the things that I did past a minute. I do not even notice or realize half the things that I do anymore, nor can I remember half the things that I do and it just makes me really sad. This all started a day after I finished drinking a Four Loko, a bud light, and a coca-cola all in one night and I stayed up until 5 AM or so.

Please help me, I feel as if I am going crazy and I am scared to die even though I feel it is already too late.



Welcome to

Your symptoms are suggestive of depersonalization or derealisation disorder (a state in which thoughts and feelings of a person seem to be unreal or not to belong to oneself). It could be part of a broader spectrum of anxiety disorder. You could benefit from both psychotherapies as well as pharmacotherapy.

It is important to calm your mind. You can try guided meditation and other relaxation exercises. If it still bothers you, you will have to take medications. Let me know if I can help with anything.

Differential diagnosis:

Anxiety disorder, depersonalisation or derealisation disorder.

Treatment plan:

Guided meditation, relaxation exercises.
