Been having that feeling for years with some days being much worse than others. When it's really bad I don't even consider driving as my concentration levels are about zero.

Have had it all day today, in between falling asleep that is - been really, really bad. I'm really light headed and have that awful detached feeling - my tinnitus is worse today as well. All in all I'm feeling pretty lousy.

I get worse tinnitus with the detached, am I dreaming or awake thing. I think the tinnitus is trying to remind me I'm still here :lol: It must be a fibro thing but don't know what causes it.

I have a queer feeling before a relapse or total exhaustion i call it the Death Feeling - i have no other way to explain this feeling.
But when i say to my GP i have The Death Feeling again he listens intently to me.

A couple of things spring to mind when reading this. Migraines, Meniere's both of which can and do cause tinnitus and feelings of being 'out-of-it' or out of body. Tinnitus on it's own can cause a feeling of being detached.
Proprioception problems, another possibility, any loss of sensation in the feet or stiffness in the back or neck might cause a feeling of not being on solid ground, and hence feeling floaty.

I find migraine and meniere's symptoms the most dramatic, and unsettling. I now find it difficult to distinguish fully between the two, perhaps I'm unlucky and one triggers the other. It can feel as if all my 'internal wiring' has been mixed up, all senses get mixed up, almost like synaesthesia, with all my limbs in the wrong places. It would be quite disturbing if I didn't know what it was and didn't have medication to settle it down.

thats a really good way of putting the feeling. it frightens me to death especially when i kind of "wake up" mid way through a conversation or i dont know if i am awake or asleep. it kind of feels like the horrid manky feeling when you have a new baby that hasnt slept for about 4 or 5 days. "dazed and confused" my hubby called it.

I recognise those feelings - it's almost like not firing on all cylinders - like being on a dimmer switch - I sat at the traffic lights recently and forgot to move when the lights went green - I didn't seem to care either - just like I'd switched off. Detached is a good way to put it. Thank you for everyone who'se written - it really does help to know that there are so many experiencing the same things. Best wishes to all.
