Hello, I hope someone here can help me, I really don't know what to do anymore.
First of all, I'm male, 18 years old, never took any drugs or drunk alcohol.
It all started about 6 weeks ago when I came home from school at Friday, I had headache at the back of my head and felt not really well all over.
At first I didn't worried about it and continued with my daily life.
When I woke up on Saturday the headache was gone but I suddenly had a slight earache in the right ear. Well I still didn't worried about it but then when I watched TV that evening I started to feel really strange.
I can't really describe it, everything felt so unreal, as if I'm not fully awake or something...
I thought it might be just because I'm tired or something and went to sleep but it persisted.
The night from Sunday to Monday I woke up at night because I was shivering and sweating. After a while I calmed down and could sleep again.
The feeling was still not gone and I still had a headache at a specific point, at the back of my head slightly at the right side.
I really got worried and went to the doc on Tuesday right before school. Well my doc naturally wasn't there at that time but I took a standard blood test and then went of to school.
The next day I got a call from the hospital which tested my blood and they said everything was fine.
Of course I was happy about this but I still had this strange feeling and the headache now and then.
A few days later my thighs started burning and my feet felt numb.
Needless to say I got worried again and went to the doc the second time, this time I spoke with him and explained my symptoms, well due to my burning thighs he made a reflex test which was ok and said I have most likely have a virus infection and my body would take care of it by itself.
I not really told him about my feeling because I feared that he might send me to hospital, which I totally can't do at the moment since I right before my A-Level Qualification...
Well now I'm sitting here almost 6 weeks later and my feeling still is present, it got better but I still notice it clearly. My other symptoms have worn off to 99%, no headache or whatsover anymore just this very annoying feeling.
To describe it more in detail, I don't have any blackouts, I am aware of my surroundings, can follow a conversation normally, have full control over my body and remember everything, it's just everything seems so far away like everything I'm experiencing is just a dream... Like said it got better by now but it's still very present. Also it seems it's better at night....
Anyone can tell me if such a feeling can be caused by a virus infection, and is there any illness that has such a thing?
It really takes me down mentally and I want to go it away already....
Thanks for help in advance!
