Hi noonespecialnz

Many years ago when I had a nervous breakdown and the beginning od P anic Disorder I used to have those feelings. They are real scary. I felt out of control of my thoughts and mind. I was afraid to die and was obsessed with thoughts of death. you are probably very anxious about something for a while. I took xanax then but the dose was not enough to keep the feelings away. It was only when the xanax was increased that I felt normal again. I now take 3 to 4 mgs of xanax per day...3 times/day. Its best to check with your doc tho and tell him how you are feeling. Hope you feel better real soon.

I would contact your doctor and let them know that you need help.

Also,seeing someone and talking about what is going on might be a huge help for you.

It does kind of sound like anxiety or panic. You should visit the anxiety forum and read to see if anything clicks.

I had that feeling of unreality one day. I even went outside to see if it would go away. But it didn't. So I took a xanax and layed down and it went away.

But I think you should talk to your doctor as said, and also some therapy could help you to find out what is making you feel that way. Does the tegratol help you any?

Keep us posted, we are here for you,.
