I experience it quite a lot. It can make it really hard to concentrate even on simple things.

I find that certain things can set it off aswell - strip lighting , computer screens etc....

It's like you're watching yourself in a dream rather than you being "in" your own body.

I had it a lot from anxiety, theres usually not much memory of it later

people are never harmed during it, something still protects them

Yes, it was a new symptom for me when I started re having panic attacks last year. I think not being able to get the help I needed and faced with a feeling like that which was so scary as I didn't understand it (I thought I was really losing it) led me to get a lot more severe over a short time.

It can be a normal symptom in a panic attack, understanding that and being able to sit down and breathe and being able to tell yourself this is ok, it will pass helped me a lot.
