In my opinion you are suffering of Depersonalization/Derealization Disorder (DDPD)
First do a thyroid test to check for hypothyroidism if it comes back normal then you will need a brain scan EEG to check your ventral prefrontal cortex
If all is normal then you need to see a psychiatric doctor

Good Luck

hi
this seems to be some sort of neurological disease and you need a neurologists help.
get a EEG and a MRI brain.
anxiety and stress also seem to be contributing factors.
thanks

HI
THIS SEEMS TO BE ONSET OF ALZIEMERS.
CONSULT A NEUROLOGIST AT THE EARLIEST. ELECTROLYTE IMBALANCE ALSO CAN BE A CAUSE.
GET BLOOD SODIUM ,POTASSIUM CHECKED.

In my opinion this could be a type of Avoidant Personality Disorder (AvPD) ..
A psychiatrist can help you diagnose and easily treat your problem through prescription of SSRI antidepressants. Therapy programs typically involve social skills training, cognitive behavioral therapy and group therapy.
Hope this helps you.
Thanks.
