    I am not sure whether anyone will be able to answer this question, but does anybody know whether you can experience catatonia and be aware of it? This morning I laid in one position for over and hour with my hand raised in the air. I knew it was happening but I couldn't physically move all I knew was that I was staring into the wall and the next thing I know I am able to move and it's an hour later. I was fully conscious, not asleep and I was aware of what was going on.

    It is unlikely catatonia, as catatonia is a severe psychiatric condition which is at the far end of DID...I have treated several patients in an awful institution who evidenced this disorder...that does not mean that you did not experience a dissociative state...please let your physician know about this as it may be secondary to a medical or pharm concern

    I think its down to restarting meds, mainly the Duloxetine. I had some pretty crazy experiences the last time I started it so it is probably that.
