    Google disassociation sounds like that caused by anxiety. I advise you to talk to someone and try to get help from a professional x

    You sound like you have depersonalisation disorder
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Depersonalization

    And you may also be experiencing the closely related condition of derealisation.

    Wrong


    What OP is describing is called brian-fog which brings about feeling like you are in a dream, like nothing is real happening around you.

    Brian fog is associated with alot of things but to me these are the things that trigger it;
    1. Alcohol (its takes 3 weeks to clear up, one of the reason im never gonna drink again)

    2. Anemia (clears up when blood levels increase)

    3. Sleep deprevition (clears up after sleeping for 10hours)

    4. Gluten intolerance (dont eat bread anymore)


    alot of people with with brian fog but they think its normal, its not normal bcoz its makes u vulnerable to things e.g im a shy person but when ive brian fog I become hyper active and say things that I would never say to people bcoz im in a dream-like-state.

    I never ever drink, fairly certain i'm not anaemic nor gluten intolerant and i don't think I'm sleep deprived either. Of course, maybe this IS all brain fog, but how come my spaced out feelings are linked with a constant pounding heart, shaking hands, feeling sick from anxious feelings etc

    Um, no offence, but if you read into depersonalisation, you'll see that it is the medical term that encapsulates "brain-fog" [or Brian fog as you call it several times] and it fits the OP's symptoms perfectly.

    Also, your brain-fog is not a long term issue.

    I'am not sure about shaking of hands but if your heart palpitations (pounding) is caused by paranoia (anxious feelings) then you are most likely to have a psychological problem. A therapist will help. But if you heart palpitations are aint triggered by paranoia then please go check you blood levels. You heart is straining.

    this is depersonalisation, a common symptom of anxiety. Get help with your anxiety/stress levels and this symptom should go, it is usually short lived.
