Hi, I have depersonalization and OCD badly but yesterday was the worste and scariest feeling I have ever had. I was with my girlfriend and I felt very focused on my body and what I am, which I have been doing this whole year. I started getting the thought of feeling locked in my own body and couldn't escape. After a while of thinking I got a really weird sensation like I was locked in my own body, I then kinda blanked out and started screaming wrestlesty. It didn't feel like me screaming. I couldn't control the screaming. I felt me screaming and heard it but it felt totally involuntary. Really scary. It felt like I was stuck in a nightmare and couldn't escape from it or myself. When I came to, I asked my girlfriend if I was screaming and she said yes. That freaked me out! After that happened I still felt like it was going to happen again and I am still feeling weird and depressed like I can bring this on just from thinking. What happened to me?

Hello HopeforEveryone,

Welcome to the HealingWell Forum.  I do not know what happened to you.  If this is new for you may I suggest that you make an appointment with your physician and get a medical check up and talk with him/her about this event you experienced.

Is it normal for anxiety, IMHO nothing is normal, there is not one set of sx that spell out "Anxiety" as each person has different experiences.

Take care
