Firstly I will go see a Doctor, but before I just wanted to see if anyone has any clue as to what this is - I imagine it's depression
Ringing in head, persistent low moods, trouble concentrating/focusing, I noticed I start to gurn/bite down on my jaw, night terrors/hallucinations shock me for initial 10 seconds, very rare but closed eye hallucinations during sleep. Feeling of being constantly spaced out, emotionally numb, never happy. Brain Fog.

Moments of panic/feeling out of it, I’m aware of what’s around me but get feeling of being trapped. During these moments, heart rate increases, perception of my vision changes and find it incredibly hard to concentrate. During these moments, I feel my brain and body are just going to shut down, making me feel like I’m getting light headed. Light head rushes and rushing feeling in my legs. During these moments, I can only describe what I feel is tripping, or more susceptible to tripping. I feel like my brain is ready to hallucinate by seeing distorted visuals/things and hearing things. Kind of like I’m going to disassociate.

Perception of having issues with memory, harder to recall certain events. General feeling that my intellectual capacity has diminished. Perception of a change in behaviour – feel like I seem more intolerant towards individuals. I struggle to construe sentences together, often mumbling or having to pause in between to catch the right word.


Sometimes an odd feeling is pressed against the back of my neck, like the muscles are very minorly shaking. Sensitivity to bright light. Struggle to focus on one task.

Seems like PTSD and subsequently depression and anxiety. Which go hand in hand with PTSD. I recommend talking to a therapist and seeing if there medications you can take to calm you down

If you need to talk let me know x

Obviously its not right and make a list of the symptoms or keep a diary and let the GP know them.


The first link is very useful as it has a self test., then there are some links on depression and anxiety. Its normally a mix of the two. See if you cna recognise yourself in them.

Thank you for these responses guys. When I get a chance I'll take these tests to see what they come out as. As an update, I've booked an appointment to see a psychiatrist, unfortunately it's a 2 week wait but at least I'll get professional advice.


I don't think it's PTSD purely based on the fact there has been no trauma in my life to create it, and I'm not having visions or flashbacks. But I do get those symptoms of completely feeling out of it, trapped for awhile and feel 'susceptible to hallucinating': I don't hallucinate or see things, but get moments where I feel like I do.

Migraine with aura and anxiety and low mood, depression isn’t evident as you don’t describe loosing interest in things you like. Could be simple hallucinations too which are extremely common.
