weird sensations-what is this?

Recommended Posts

Ever since I was a kid I will sometimes get this weird physical sensation along with a sense of impending doom.  I'm guessing it's just a weird anxiety symptom, but I wonder if anyone else has this.  My body will feel heavy, like something is pressing down on me (kind of like the lead apron they put on you at the dentist when you get x-rays) and at the same time, my body feels floaty and light, and I feel like I'm disconnected from my body.  What is this, and does anyone else get this?

Have you ever had migraines or seizures? A sense of impending doom can be an aura.


  Hmm, that's interesting.  I didn't know that.  I get these weird headaches that don't fit neatly into any category.  My doctor calls them 'mixed migraines' because they have features of migraine, and features of tension headache. 


  GIbson, it does feel rather dissociative, but I'm not sure if strange physical sensations can go with that or not.
