Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
The symptom which you describe where you feel disengaged from your self is called depersonalization
, and is an anxiety-related symptom. It is often a part of panic attacks (again, an anxiety disorder). Having strange tingling
or numbing sensations of the body are also well known symptoms of anxiety. So, most likely all the symptoms which you have described are anxiety-related.
will take about 2 weeks to bring about their full potential of beneficial effects. Also, during the initial phase there can even be a transient worsening of anxiety after starting medication. So, don't worry about these symptoms. With some more time, the medication will be able to control your symptoms. You can try relaxation techniques
like deep breathing, yoga
, etc. and try to distract your mind whenever you get such symptoms.
Wish you all the best.
