It all started in early May, everything seemed to be normal, as usual I walked from morning to night (figuratively). But I began to notice that the atmosphere of my walks began to take on an unpleasant appearance to me. Everything was somehow gray, sad and unpleasant. Once I had an unpleasant dream, over which I was pondering all morning (I will not divulge the details of the dream, since it is not on the topic). During the day I forgot about it, but towards evening I remembered it again, and a real trash began.
The heartbeat quickened, the breath caught, an insane feeling of fear and derealization began. I understand it was a panic attack. This condition lasted for several days, later I began to look for what it was and how to deal with it. As a result, the Internet led me to a "seasonal blues", I was afraid to go to the doctor, and there was not much opportunity. As a result, all this was forgotten after a week, but as soon as I drank a small amount of alcohol, everything started anew .... And now I have been in this state for three months now, other symptoms have appeared that frighten me very much. The only thing that could distract me was a trip to rest, and then not for long.
In order not to paint the poem, I will tell you in brief.
Obsessive thoughts appeared, at first worried, now faded into the background. I am constantly looking on the Internet, what is happening to me, what kind of illness I have, how to overcome it and the like.
The feeling that I have closed myself in "my little world".
Interest in everything has completely disappeared.
Stopped feel feelings for your soulmate.
There is no comfort even at home under a blanket.
Sometimes I observe the situation and think that everything seems to be fine, everything is as it should, but it feels like I’m watching inside, as if it’s all the movies that I like, but it is unpleasant.
Sometimes I think about life and realize that I forgot how to live.
I do not feel satisfaction from ordinary affairs. The head often hurts. And a bunch-a bunch-a bunch of everything.
I understand it sounds absurd, but I'm an impressionable and empathic person, maybe it somehow plays a role.
I have already tried to get away from this, and went to a psychologist , and ran, and tried to captivate himself with something, all to no avail ...
Next week I am going to a psychiatrist, but for now I want to hear an opinion from people who know at least a little about this.

Contact a psychologist or a familiar person (but not a relative) who has a rational approach to resolving issues. That is, to the most pragmatic personality. Since such a strange and unexplored topic, then the answer, as you understand, is appropriate :) dry perception of any emotional storms. And even the "most strange" can be seen through the prism of simple things.

Good day, it's not entirely clear about the state that you call a panic attack, because a panic attack lasts a maximum of 30 minutes, and you write that you have been in this state for several days, perhaps you are confusing an attack with panic. Why didn't you want to see a doctor right away for help? As if there is no value to your health. The head often hurts, like a "neurasthenic helmet." You need to see a psychologist who deals with psychosomatics, but first to a psychiatrist.

Good afternoon! What you describe looks more like a neurotic disorder. A psychiatrist will help you choose drug therapy, you may need to prescribe an antidepressant. But this is decided, of course, only by the doctor after an in-person consultation. Here, the optimal solution, as I see it, will be taking medications (to stabilize the general condition, relieve symptoms) and plus, of course, psychotherapy (to work with the cause of the disorders that have arisen).

A serotonin antidepressant will help you, which has anti-anxiety properties. I recommend escitolopram as it is the most tolerable. But, of course, only a doctor can prescribe a specific medicine.
