Zombie brain?
Sep 27, 2006
Hi everyone

I am currently 5-6 days completely sober and it feels great to be able to wake up in the mornings without the terrible hangovers (and loads of other frightening symptoms). However, I have been experiencing loads of anxiety, panic attacks and my brain literaly feels like someone injected it with Novocaine. I just feel very foggy-headed, fried-in-the-head, zombie-ish, fuzzy, stuporish, etc. My face feels expressionless (like a rigid mask) and my eyes feel all buggy (like the feeling you would get if you crossed them). I don't know how else to describe it except to say that it is a very uncomfortable and alarming feeling and that I am really freaking out right now.

I do suffer from anxiety, panic attacks, hypochondria, etc and because of all these symptoms, I find myself obsessing over rabies, MS, mad cow disease and other diseases. I just had a panic attack a few minutes ago over all of this. The thing is, I don't know if this is alcohol withdrawal, anxiety or some disease. I've had loads and loads of tests for anything and everything over the years so I suppose it could be alcohol withdrawal but I don't know what to think. I just feel like my brain has been fried, numbed, disconnected and I'm in a complete fog.

Anyone else experience this?
