I can’t specifically relate but I do remember reading something about that being a symptom of schizophrenia in the book “Surviving Schizophrenia”.

Mine was triggered by stress, panic attacks, and anxiety. I don’t get those symptoms anymore. I’m 99% cured from Derealization. What you described is more DP/DR or just DP depersonalization the out of body thing and feeling unreal. I studied this stuff personally and both are frightening but I hated derealization more because I had it really bad and chronic for years. There is no known cure or treatment but caffeine, nicotine, and stuff makes it worse. There might be a simple solution or no solution. It comes along with the schizophrenia territory, I guess.

No evidence of trauma but I had it really bad for 10 years since 2010-2011.
