    It's haunting me and comes out of nowhere. Sometimes it happens when I sit at my desk at work. But most often it happens at the exact moment I am falling asleep at home. The feeling itself is terrifying. It feels as if the entire room is rotating and as if I am on the verge of fainting... but nothing serious ever happened to me. It just the feeling that tortures me.

    I noticed that it goes away when I have longer streaks and this, for me, is an absolute sign and warning that I have to stop PMOing once and for all.

    What exactly is happening? Is this because of the changed brain chemistry from PMO? Or is it simply a symptom of the anxiety caused by PMO?

    I have something a little similar. I don’t feel the room spinning or anything like that, but I get these moments where I’m extremely disoriented and can’t focus on anything. The feeling passes after awhile, but it’s a bit worrisome at times. Just this past weekend I was on my way to the gym when this feeling came over me and I ended up turning around and going back home. I have no clue why this happens, but I would be willing to guess that it has a lot to do with anxiety.

    Hey man, How are you doing? Has your disorientation subsided? I'm having similar episodes myself, almost as if I temporarily lose depth perception.

    Actually, I haven’t had any episodes in quite awhile. It could be any number of things that cause it, like dehydration, lack of sleep or even too much caffeine.

    I have heard that a lot of addictions cause withdrawal symptoms and, for me, nofap and giving up PMO, in the beginning, made me feel a little spacey. I felt like I wasn't part of this world. I think it went away around the one week mark for me. If you are getting vertigo, I would get it checked out with a doctor and if he finds nothing, it's anxiety and withdrawal symptoms.

    Vertigo can be easily treatable if the cause is crystals in the inner ear. Look up the Epley Maneuver.

    I used to have this as well. I would get a "dazed" feeling and then feel spaced out and almost like my head could float. Sometimes itd come and go for minutes at a time I remember and it would freak me out. I can assure everyone it is PMO related

    Are you continuing to deal with this? I've had such sensations for a while myself. I also notice the severity lessen with longer streaks.

    Do you ever feel like you're floating or walking on a cloud or is it only your head? How are you so certain it's absolutely PMO related? I think this too but I can find absolute no information about this online. I guess it figures because "porn and masturbation and completely normal and healthy."
