The numb feeling that you speak of makes me think back to when I had a lot of issues with anxiety, and it was pretty much due to my adrenals being shot. With treatment for my tick-borne infections and supplementation for my adrenals, I haven't had any serious anxiety attacks in quite a while, fortunately. They can get quite severe.
Derealization and Depersonalization are very real issues for some with these infections. They usually do go away with treatment though.
Treating with Acupuncture, Traditional & Modern Chinese Medicine & Western Herbs. Before tx, I had all but 20 of the symptoms on the "Master Symptom List" for Lyme disease.
