Hello

A month and 1/2 ago i started feeling constantly spaced out, and cognitively deficient. A couple of days after i started feeling a constant dull headache... almost like it's brain pressure. A week after that i realized how the dull headache would radiate from the base of my skull / top of my spine and spread through out my head. Now my whole neck aches and the the dull ache at the top of my spine / base of my skull and head intensified slightly.

i use to enjoy intellectual conversation but now find it somewhat difficult because of frequent brain ****s, memory gaps and I feel mentally slow. I constantly have to wrestle with a shortened attention span and a spaced out feeling with passive meditation. I also feel like everything in my head registers things much more slowly... verbally and visually. Sometimes i make really stupid decisions like looking for milk in the co bard... as if i'm so spaced out that i do things without before i think about it..

some history:
I use to be a gym freak until 6 months ago. 2 years ago, While working out i use to feel a pinched nerve in my neck... one time i got really sick after immediately after a gym session where i was lifting heavy overhead. I was in the Navy so they just handed me Tylenol and sent me back to work. I was so sick i could barely move and my neck was aching... I had a lot of cold sweaty nights. It lasted about 5 days and i lost 20 pounds. i thought it was the flu but my two overweight friends saw how skinny i was and ( I s**t you not) decided to lick the rhym of the cup i was drinking out of but never got sick. When i got somewhat healthy I went back to the gym and the same less intense symptoms showed up again.. but i felt my neck hurting first. so i stayed out the gym for a month.

also, i expirimented with Pot this year from June till September.. then again in the beginning of November for a week. But i know people with who smoked for a decade and don't share my symptoms.

unfortunately i can't go to the doctor at the moment because i don't have health insurance. (No you don't get it once out the Service) Can anyone help me out, i've been reading forums all week and didn't get a diagnosis. Does anyone have any information or know where i can ask around?

  • Hello Good People!I was suffering from same symptoms since past two months and somehow i have managed to cure it!If i can cure it anyone else can. When it started happening to me, i felt completely Insane, i felt i was going mad or something, the pressure behind my skull was driving me nuts.So, i googled it, the whole day, i looked for why's is that happening to me.From whatever i read i could conclude that like every other organ of your body the brain gets tired too, tired of worrying or tried of thinking too much so it aches, or gives you strange feelings. And the irony is the more you worry about your condition the worse it will get.Now, this is how i cured it.Just follow the simple steps, it might sound awkward for you if you are a non believer but give it a shot.Next time when you wake up in the morning, join your hands and say "****s, I'm glad you took away my problems, from me thanks for it ****s, I feel like i'm your child" say it like you really mean it, and believe he kept his hand on your head and said, you got it son.Now, just stop thinking about your problem, forget about it i know it would be hard or rather impossible but if you stop thinking about it, it will go away like a passing phase of your life.When you think about it, you bring it back to you.Things to Avoid: Don't do any kinds of drugs, no alcohol either.and obsly dont think about your problem.Things to do: Stay motivated, drink a lot of water, and have good food and little gym ming should help.Even if its too hard for you to forget whatever is happening to you, just try to live with it without complaining about it 24/7. This is how you are, and maybe you are special above human species.Remember Don't get paranoid, you are NOT going insane, its just a passing phase.Believe in ****s, he will help you,Goodluck.PS: You should also try googling Depersonalization/Derealization. It has some common symptoms.

  • I too have all the same symptoms and over time have discovered that as I get older (I'm 57 now) any physical activity that involves overhead lifting triggers this. Something as simple as doing some weed whacking, or just recently, lifting a chair overhead that was in the back of the garage.After doing the abovementioned I would start having a annoying headache and stiff neck. At first I would just ignore it, but it would just get worse and I would start to feel nauseous. I have learned that if I take Tylenol, within 30 min l could feel the back of my neck starting to relax and mask the headache.I must admit I have little overhead strength and my posture is poor, due to my 6'4" frame sitting hunched over a computer. If fact, sitting at the comp too ling also caused these problems.What exercises should I do to slowly strengthen my upper body?Hope this helps ... MKDP

  • I got all the symptoms that started in the afternoon of 08Mar2009. I feel best in the evening watching TV. That must help me forget about anxiety and thinking about the symptoms. I do have a stiff/sore neck that cracks a lot. I am taking under active thyroid medicine and take vitamins. I don't think that stuff helps.

  • I have been suffering with this for 14 years. I was one of the top 3 state troopers in my state. Im here to tell you that this gets worse. The fog was there for many years, after 13 years it turned into horrific fatigue. I am now out of work. I have had 5 sleep studies, 2 MRI's multiple, multiple tests. They can find nothing. I did as a kid have some pain in my neck. When I turn my head I can feel/hear a grinding sort of thing. Yet the scans show nothing out of the ordinary. WE all here are saying weird stuff in the neck. This cant be depression or anxiety. I was happiest person in world before this hit me, LITERALLY over night. I have lost many things due to this, including a wonderful career but I am not giving up yet. Anyone here wake up feeling way better if they wake up on stomach? That is about only thing I notice has helped slightly. As for all these theories on yeast, anxiety etc. Been there, tried them all with doctor, waste of time.

  • Hello Everyone,I am 24 years old living in Florida. I'm 5ft 9in at about 183lbs. I'm not the healthiest person in the world by any means. I eat a lot of junk food and have gained weight but I'm around average.In July I noticed I was getting slight fevers and headaches. I was also feeling "out of it" or "spaced out" and a little dizzy not really too much. I also had my feet and hands would be cold and or sweating. After two weeks I went to the doctor. She told me that I had slight Anemia and that I had some sort of Bacterial infection that was going away after some blood work was done.After a few weeks since then, I saw no changes. I went to another doctor and gave him my test results. He told agreed with the other doctor saying that it looks like I had some sort of infection and that it was going away. He prescribed Omoxcillen. I took those for the next 10 days and felt good. I actually was energized the first day I took the pill and hyper. Some time went by and realized I was again out of it. My hands and feet were cold again sweating.Oddly, I had a toothe that had to be removed since it was a bad cavity. I was precribed Pencillen for the infection. I took that until it ran out and I thought I was cured. Two days after I was taking this medication I'm back to how I was feeling before. I feel out of it and spaced out. I feel tired. Whenever I walk in the mall or stores I feel very weird and out of it. Whenever I look at the computer screen it feels weird. My hands and feet sweat occasionally.I'm extremely concerned and don't know what it could be. I'm concerned it could be Lyme disease since I've been reading a lot about that as well.

  • Hi All,I am a 27 year old male, I have been having these symptoms too, my previous doctor said it could be allergies causing blocked sinus etc, I have been for the allergy test and they found I am allergic to a few things, I have now been taking antihistamines for 2 to 3 weeks but I still feel just the same, The feeling seems to get worse and then better again. This all seems to have started one day at work I got a creeping skin sensation in the left side of my face and felt dizzy, I went straight to the doctor who could not really explain the face sensation or dizzyness but said it could be a nerve pinching in the neck and my allergies causing the dizzy cloudy spaced out feeling, this has gone but the other symptoms remain. I did have a massage 2 days prior to this, could this have started it? I have also noticed when I concentrate on driving or doing a lot of things at once the feeling gets worse.Please help if anyone has any clues on what causes this.CheersDarren

  • Hello,I am no stranger to most of the symptoms pointed out so far in this thread, however i can state that my symptoms were not as bad as some of you, i either had one or two of the symptoms but never more at one time, and have found ways to eliminate, or atleast reduce the symptoms for a lenghly time period.It all started with constant headaches, i literally had one all-day everyday for weeks and just couldn't think of what the cause could be. However one day i randomly sprayed deodorant to my arm-pits (which i excessively did at the time becuase of the heat during summer - more for the 'cool' breeze rather than smelling good) and my mum's friend told me (who coincedently witnessed me doing it) that "ahaha i heard too much deodorant causes head aches", and it instantly hit me that THIS is what was giving me these headaches all this time, and honestly deodorant was the last thing on my mind. So anyway i decided to temporarily quit using deodorant, and magically my headaches did subside and eventually went away.However it was after this when i started to feel affected by the already stated symptoms in this thread, such as feeling dizzy, dosey, unfocused, unbalanced when walking, occasional migraines, light-headed spaced out etc. I first thought they would pass with time but eventually realised that was not the case. I first sought for a cause, as once i found a cause it would lead to a solution; so i tried many things from changing my diet, sleeping activities, daily exercises etc and i noticed one thing that did repress some of the symptoms was waking up earlier, getting less sleep. So i kept this up for a while and i was happy, but unfortunately it seems that the body adapts to these new patterns, builds a tolerance and the symptoms would strike back. BUT they wont be as bad as the initial stage. I then decided to shift my diet, i initiallty went healthy mode (no fastfood, more fruit - particularly apples, etc.) and this did help but the thing which most helped was my reduced intake of food. Although i was losing weight (and still am to this day) i still feel more focused, which i need to in order to graduate university and so i intend to maintain this pattern for the time being. The main point here is that random new habits may cause these symptoms (in my case headaches from excessive deodorant) and new random habits may reduce/eiminate these symptoms (again, in my case less food consumption).So, a few important facts i came to realise along my 'journey'; First, its obvious that everyone is different and different things will affect different individuals, and it is up to YOU (the individual) to find something which works as a 'blocker' for YOU and only YOU.Second, a recommendation from experience; STOP feeling sorry for yourself, and really challenge yourself and confront these symptoms, because trust me, once your on top of them you will only get better as time passes. Once you find ways which help control the symptoms, you not only feel better externally but you gain confidence and this leads to more sub-conscious optism which will eventually eliminate the symptoms.Today, i do feel better, i have been battleing this state which no one else could comprehend (except those who are going through them like those in this thread) for a few years and i finally feel i have the upper hand. Occasionally they do come back in subtle ways but i noticed the period of non-symptoms is much longer than the period where they kind of come back, so all in all i feel like the winner, and i hope those who are also suffering from this can eventually defeat it, and not giving in.

  • Suffering for 14 years is so long. I was a happy laid back person too that got hit all of the sudden and been the same ever since. I just started taking flying lessons and ended up quiting with all these symptoms I have now. I've lost the thrill for doing anything.I'm not sure how any of this works, or if I'm even writing in the correct area of the page. I've never heard of this Derealisation or Depersonalisation, but I have to admit it sounds like something mental to me. My foggy head/spaced out problem is becoming worse. I can’t seem to concentrate on anything for very long. I recently suffered a “fall” from my front porch, injuring my right leg, which has now become an issue of it’s own and created more problems. I am dizzy a lot lately. I get headaches from time to time and they have recently started settling behind my eyes, mostly almost pressure, behind my right eye. I have had a neck area problem for about 25 years that has recently gone further down into my upper back and as far down as my lower shoulder area. In approximately 1986 I began to have a nagging ache-almost burning sensation on my right hip area. Basically my gluteus, about where a medicine shot is given. About age 12, I had some problems with my right heel that eventually went away and nothing other foot-wise until about the late 1990’s when the bottoms of my feet became painful if I went without shoes. My family doctor at the time told me to just not go barefoot and that eventually subsided until I suffered a broken bone on my right foot, early summer of 2007. Since that point I have had many terrible foot problems. I can barely remember what I am doing, just moving from one room in my home to the next. When I drive I am becoming so absentminded that I scare myself. I do occasionally have clear days, but they are becoming less frequent and I desperately want to figure out if there is anything I’m doing to cause it or if anything I do helps it to clear. I asked one of my past doctors if she thought I might be in the beginning stages of Alzheimer’s, since I am now in my 50’s, but she said no. I have experienced episodes of non-clarity all of my adult life and even had some back in my teens, but they are now becoming so bad that much of my family and people that know me, think I am just plain nuts because I have made some really bad choices in the last few years. I have been going thru the anti-depressant ringer on and off for about 15 years and getting tired of that, because now I seem to be getting symptoms from those, so I quit them again. Now developing a sleep disorder, which I also had as a teenager. Had a horrible bout with it, about at puberty. My biggest fear right now is losing my job. They are too hard to come by and my husband isn’t in great health. I just don’t feel like I can continue to work and come anywhere close to taking care of myself or him. I’m so sorry to ramble on about this, but does anybody out there know any tests that they have had run, that says anything conclusive?

    8 Surprising Facts About Cholesterol

    Did you know that one in six US adults has high cholesterol?

  • It is so weird, because I have been feeling like this for the past few days!I went away for a weekend without my boyfriend and came back to our place and just felt really weird there.Ever since I have been feeling tired, with pressure in my head and constant blurring.I can't concentrate on anything, and keep getting these 'gut feelings' that I know aren't true. I don't know if that's just me?Keep getting a really heavy head and everything, and keep thinking something must have happened while I was away, as me and my boyfriend experienced a few problems last week.When I came back, I also had the 'guilt feeling' as I have done something wrong though I haven't.After reading through all these, I know it's anxiety and I find it so amazing how many deal/cope with it.Does anyone know how it goes? Is there something the doc can prescribe to you?It's horrible going through, and you just wish the feeling would pass!Hope you are all wellxx

  • Its called Derealisation or Depersonalisation . Its a form of anxiety which has been in some ways ruining my life since april this year. For ages i did'nt know what was wrong with me. I constantly felt like i was in a daze trapped inbetween a dream world and reality. Constantly worrying i had something wronge with my brain i looked for possible answers on the internet and in various health books, at 1st i found nothing which related to me. A week into feeling like this i was going insaine. Questioning my sanity and having huge panic attacts and anxiety. I was a mess. Even not being able to work.Previous to this i took salvia. In my mind i thought i was still half in a trip. That maybe the drug had'nt left my system for some reason, but it was'nt that.Finaly after 5 weeks of feeling like my life was slowly ending i found a website which explained about a type of anxiety. Well 2 to be exact Depersonalisation and Derealisation.(big words i know, which is why i prob had never heard of them) Sufferers of Depersonalisation or Derealisation feel divorced from both the world and from their own body. Often people who experience depersonalisation claim that life "feels like a dream", things seem unreal, or hazy; some say they feel detached from their own body. Another symptom of this condition can be the constant worrying or strange thoughts that people find hard to switch off..People often say that no matter how hard they try, they don't feel like they can interact with the world around them. They feel a sense of detachment from their surroundings, finding it hard to talk and connect with others. Also they feel no love for the people closest to them and even question if they did a certain task or had a particular conversation. The most upsetting thing is they lose a sense of who they are and can't seem to perceive themselves as being normal. Depersonalisation is a common and understandable offshoot of the anxiety condition. Before going further into depersonalisation, let me clear up one thing,which is something I get asked often. “No, you are not going mad.” This feeling comes from being constantly worried about your own problems, but it is not serious or harmful in any way and has a totally logical explanation. It is temporary and, with patience and understanding, eventually passes like any other symptom.Depersonalisation occurs with anxiety because you are so used to watching yourself, questioning your illness, day in, day out, that you start to feel detached from the outside world. Your mind has become tired and less resilient through watching yourself and worrying about your symptoms. It has been bombarded with worrying thoughts and becomes fatigued. When our limbs tire, they ache. When our mind tires, we feel these strange feelings of detachment from the world around us, experiencing an almost dreamlike state, convincing ourselves that we are going mad or losing it. You are not; your mind is just so very tired and just craves a rest from all this introspection of oneself.When people are caught up in the worry cycle, they begin to think deeply and constantly. They study themselves from deep within, checking in and focusing on their symptoms. They may even wake in the morning only to continue this habit, “How do I feel this morning? “I wonder if I will be able to get through today”. What’s this new sensation I feel?” This may go on all day, exhausting their already tired mind further. This constant checking in and constant assessing of their symptoms then becomes a habit, but like all other habits this one can also be changed.4 months later im alot calmer and can control it alot better although it still gets the better of me. The reason i made this thread is because i've spoke to loads of people who have simular feelings to what i had and did'nt know what it was. I know how bad i was when i didnt understand what was going on so if i can help someone else then great! I was also wondering if anyone else has this and knows already what it was and do you have any addvise on how to deal with it as its still hard to deal with at times.I can really relate to this, as me and my boyfriend had some problems last week, and he kept some secrets from me.I then went away for the weekend, expecting something to happen, and kept building it up.As soon as i came back to our place, it felt like i just didnt belong there, and felt detached from everyone and the bedroom even seemed weird? Now i keep thinking something bad is going to happen? And feel detached from my boyf.I dont know if that relates, but it does sound like what I go through.I went on the internet, and looked it up, and a common cause is sleep deprivation.Can a trauma trigger it off?Hope you are well xx

  • Wow, so i'm not alone...feels nice but i'm sorry you all are feeling this way too.I've felt like this (spaced out etc) in the past but never for this long...it's been constant for at least two weeks and it seems like it's getting worse not better. I can barely form sentences at this point, i keep forgetting words or using the wrong verb tenses and when i talk it seems like someone else is talking and i'm just listening. I really don't even want to talk at this point. Really terrible impulse control/decision making too...i keep snapping at people at work (not good since i work in hospitality) and i even pushed a lady on the bus this morning because she had the nerve to ask to sit down next to me. This is not me AT ALL...i'm normally a really, really nice person. My fine motor skills have deteriorated too (i usually type 95 wpm but i'm now struggling to type at all) and blurry vision.I'm going to the dr. next week to get checked out, i already tested my blood sugar myself and it was normal so i don't think its diabetes...maybe the yeast thing, i'll look into that. I too go to the gym at least 5x a week, but i haven't had any injuries. I did have swine flu about a month ago though, wonder if that could be related...I hope someone can fix this...everyone at work thinks i've lost my mind and i'm starting to think that too. Or else they think i'm on drugs, which i'm not. I just want to lay down and cry awhile and stare into space...was supposed to see friends this weekend but i'm not going to...was thinking of going on a little getaway but i don't think i should drive. I feel kind of drunk so i guess it wouldn't be smart.Sorry for random rambling...best of luck to all of you. I hope someone gets this figured out so we can go back to being normal again.

  • I have the exact problems. honestly i dont recall when it happened. all i know is that those symptoms came on after the many head injuries that i've had. im assuming about four years ago. at this present moment, my brain feels clogged, foggy, lack of oxygen, and i can fall asleep at this moment if i close my eyes for about five min. i can sleep over 12 hours and still wake up tired and dizzy. i lack energy half of the day and get sooo drained talking and listening to people, even for just a min. when people talk fast, it doesnt register in my brain. nothing sticks to it. all the important things that i learn at shchool is not stored. i lose patience with everyone so you can tell by this that my love life sucks and dealing with people doesnt come easy. i cant talk back to people and have a normal conversation becuase i dont get anything that they are saying. my brain operates as slow as molases, probably slower! i love going out and getting to know people, but i cant seem to function correctly or normally. i feel like such a freaken idiot and deformed human being.

  • I too have been dealing with similar symptoms.I am a 25 year old male in pretty good shape.I use to smoke and I drink occasionally.It all started when I was 15,I just started getting a dull ache in the back of my head and feeling like I was high,drunk all the time,with extreme fatigue.I have been going to doctors for 10 years now as this "disease" has progressed.My symptoms are a dull ache in my head that sometimes progresses into headaches(migraines),I have a constant feeling like I am high or drunk,I feel like I am very slower than I used to be(mentally),burning eyes,aching behind eyes and in temples of my head,extreme fatigue,lack of expression or emotion,terrible anxiety about going around others,I sometimes get the chills through my body at random moments(even when it's not cold),and just an overall slowness compared to my former self.I have been checked for thyroid problems,had catscans and mri's on my head,checked for diabetes,tumors,had a stress test for my heart,pretty much everything,and it has all came back negative.It is so frustrating having something so debilatating and not even know what it is(much less figure out how to fix it),and when the doctors are so "nonchalant" about their diagnosis,or lack there of one,because they don't understand and probably don't care.So I am taking a pro-active approach and looking up stuff on my own based on my symptoms and have been taking these possibilities back to the doctor,praying for an answer.At hi time I have about 6 i will be asking him about next time...Occipital neuralgia,Arteriovenous fistula,cervical dystonia,Arnold Chairi Malformation,and Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension.

  • I have Occipital Neuralgia, that the head/neck pain, fogginess, tender scalp. I also have Supraorbital Neuralgia, that's the pain behind the eye/forehead/temple. I've had this problem for over 2 years. I'm not a medical professional, but if you have these symptoms, that everyone is stating in the posts, then you need to research occipital neuralgia and supraorbital neuralgia and see a neurologists. Good luck, if this is what you have it just gets worse.

  • I have also been feeling this way for years now. Like a constant drunk feeling. I regularly get nose and throat infections. I have not had a car accident or anything like that. No acidents at the gym. I do suffer from sleep disorders though and went to a nurologist years ago for that. But everytime I go to my doctor I get fobebd off with something or another. I have been tested for diabeties, vit b-12, ME, chronic fatigue syndrome. All sorts. But it really effects my day to day life... I find it hard concentrating at work. Makes silly mistakes. I too look for things in silly places, or I will be looking right at it and not see it... I forget if I have said something to someone. Things like that. Constantly tired and spaced out. Its horrible! Its really getting me down. And it seems the non one understands. I feel depressed for no reason! Its so so so so wierd. My last diagnoses was adult azbergers!!! Absolute rubbish! My doctor said basically there is no cure, you just have to live with it... Well I am not sure how much longer I can without going completely insane! Needless to say I have changed doctors and am off to see them next week... Even while typing this I feel wierd. I fullness feeling in my ears and that half drunk half sober feeling... Not sure if anyone else gets this... but guilt feelings? From nothing... you go out and have fun or something but feel terribly guilty the day after.... EEEaaak!!!!!!!!!Same problem. Will it ever end is the question.

  • add me to the list. Mine started with graves disease (thryoid) so all you be sure to get the thryoid checked as well as the antibodies for thryoid diseases Graves adn Hashimotos. Check out thryoid forum boards for mor exact info as interpreting the blood results can be tricky and not all doctors "get it"However, for me the thryoid is now fine and I am still drunk and foggy ....I am sleepy and tired and drunk all the time...it is horrible. I often feel better towards the evening.....as a heads up, get check for autoimmune diseases as many can cause they symptoms. Also the parathyroid (which is rare and doctors don't often check) might be a consideration....this is just all blood work so I think easy enough to do. And as another poster said, try to go on with your life as best you can....it helps to keep busy and distracted as much as possible. Joan
