Question by Beatseeker: is derealization just a symptom of anxiety or can it be a disorder?
is derealization just a symptom of anxiety or can it be a disorder? also I get derealization and general unreal feelings, headaches and head pressure feeling kind of like I’m going to faint, like i don’t always have good balance is this anxiety ? if yes, is always thinking about my anxiety symptoms going to make the symptoms worse?

Best answer:

Answer by Faith4jesus
I have had anxiety and panic disorders since I was 13 though along with many other mental issues.

I just looked up derealization. I have never heard of that connected with anxiety.

To me derealization sounds more like a problem where you disconnect yourself from the world. You set up walls around yourself and sink deep inside yourself.

I use to do that.

headaches and head pressure feeling kind of like I’m going to faint, like i don’t always have good balance – yes that is panic & anxiety.

Yes always worrying and thinking about it will set off symptoms.

Just reading about yourself makes me feel heavy in the chest and hard to breath.

Crazy isn’t it?

The key is to remember & tell yourself you are ok. You are just fine.

Reconnect yourself with this world by touching things around you. For example I’m laying in bed since I’m sick. I would touch my bed, the table near me, my dog near by, a pillow & so on. Remind myself I am safe. Nothing is going to hurt me.

Q&A: Are these symptoms of an anxiety disorder?

Question by DBleu: Are these symptoms of an anxiety disorder?
My friend always thinks that people are talking about her, and if she goes to the store to look at clothes, she thinks they are looking at her and thinking that she is fat. When she was at work alone, she thought that there was a ghost in the room because an out of order clock started chiming. When we went out, some people were passing out flyers and she was afraid they would follow us home and attack her. Anxiety runs in her family, so are these signs of anxiety?

Best answer:

Answer by dr324watson
Feelings that people are talking about you or laughing at you usually stem from paranoia due to low self esteem. When an individuals line of thinking takes on unusual thought processes (i.e. clocks chiming due to ghosts or being attacked by strangers) is commonly a sign of delusion. I would suggest your friend seek professional help.

Q&A: what does bipolar disorder 1 mixed type (anxiety,OCD,depressive,psychotic symptoms mean?

Question by Kathy: what does bipolar disorder 1 mixed type (anxiety,OCD,depressive,psychotic symptoms mean?
i went to a psychiatrist today and he said i have bipolar disorder 1 mixed type (anxiety,OCD,depressive and psychotic symptoms) what does that mean?

Best answer:

Answer by Steffen
Not sure what your psychiatrist was smoking before he saw you that day, but there is no such thing as bipolar disorder type 1 “mixed type”. The only thing that has “mixed type” is delusional disorder. There are only three versions of bipolar disorder: type 1, type 2, and cyclothymia. OCD and psychosis are separate from the bipolar. You can have both bipolar and OCD at the same time, or you can have bipolar with psychotic features, which is its own illness. That’s what I was diagnosed with before getting something else. It means exactly what it says: Bipolar disorder with psychotic features.\

I hope that answers your question sufficiently. OCD is a separate diagnosis from bipolar, and psychosis can be a feature of bipolar disorder, but it is not a subtype, just like how “Major Depressive Disorder – In Remission” isn’t a subtype, but still has its own DSM code. Those are called specifiers.
