Neurologist: Dr. F, Board Certified MD replied 8 years ago

A feeling of ..."your not all there like your not in reality"..that is constant is uncommon as a sign of neurological illness.

Some people with epilepsy have seizure warnings that include feelings of unreality, but these episodes are usually only minutes to (rarely) hours long, and are usually followed by a seizure.

A feeling of unreality that is continuous may be associated with a general medical malady such as fever.

A feeling of unreality may also occur as a result of deliberate or unsuspected ingestion of substances that impair or alter brain function.

Finally, a feeling of unreality may be associated with mood disorders such as anxiety.

You should see a doctor if these feelings persist.

Thank you for the opportunity to help you. To give me credit for my time and effort, please press the ACCEPT button for this answer. After that, I will still be glad to answer additional questions until you are satisfied.

A Positive Feedback and/or Bonus is welcomed and appreciated.
