The life force of my body is gone

Posted by victor328 @victor328, Aug 31 7:38pm

I’m not sure where to put this question, a few years ago the lifeness of my body started to lessen and my feelings disappeared on their own, not as in depression or a psychological issue behind it. There is nothing in my gut the capacity to feel anything is very weak and my imagination is gone with it

Hello @victor328, Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I've been down and depressed before but I don't think that is what you are talking about. I'm wondering if this might not just be a men's only health topic. I found an older article that talks about Life Force and may give you some insight on how to regain it — 'Life Force' Linked To Body's Ability To Withstand Stress: https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2009/06/090617123700.htm

I also found a blog entry linked to Yoga that may be helpful – When the life force leaves the body: https://rainbowsandrollercoasters.com/2017/11/21/when-the-life-force-leaves-the-body/

You mention that you started feeling this way a few years ago. Was there any life changing event that you think might have started this?

I gave up on looking online, it's all articles about depression and spiritualism. I would need some kind of medication that would make my brain bring the body back to life, I feel like doing nothing all day, unable to think and barely speak

My entire body looks dead or like hard to focus on

@victor328, I added your discussion to the "Just Want To Talk" group https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/other/

It is hard to know what type of specialist you should see. Have you talked to you PCP or family physician about this?

@victor328 Just to clarify, do you feel like a shell? Kind of like an empty mollusk shell one might find on a beach? You know you are there, but feel removed from everything. Nothing angers you, amuses you, irritates you; you just are. You are not discontent, hungry, thirsty, bored, you are just there. Is that about right? Because I know that feeling. I have no answers for you, but if you want to change this somehow, I would start with talk therapy.

Hello,
Did all your symptoms start at the same time?
Are you having motivation iissues?
Would you describe this as an emotional disconnection problem where you feel numb (for lack of a better word.)
Were you taking any new medications when this happened?

@victor328 Have you sat down to think about an event or situation that would cause you to consider your symptoms to be PTSD? Here is an article published by Mayo Clinic that talks about PTSD https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/post-traumatic-stress-disorder/symptoms-causes/syc-20355967 There are some very good pointers in this article that may allow you to see if what you are experiencing is exactly that. If so, making an appointment with a medical professional to address this might be a very good thing for you.

Have you considered writing down how you feel on a daily or often basi? This will help you gain insight, also. Please come back and let me know what you feel after reading our posts.
