Brief Answer:
It is mostly due to stress and related factors

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for using healthcaremagic.

Although exact pathology for depersonalization and derealization not known but it is well established that depersonalization/derealization episodes mostly occur due to stress.

If you have chronic stress, the same may be applicable for you. Most of my patients who report with depersonalization/derealization on through history taking reveal deep rooted conflicts in their mind.

I feel it will be appropriate if you can opt for psychoanalaysis. By this method of analysis most of persons with depersonalization/derealization can unearth deep rooted conflicts. Once it is done the person can be helped out by therapist in conclusive manner.

Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
If not, you may close the discussion and if possible you may rate the answer for my future patients.
