Thanks, now I see better. I have felt the way you described here and I don't think that is schizophrenia but could it be rather a strong uncomfortable feeling that comes along with a deep hurt from something? That's what it's been for me anyways. I read the part about the neuroleptic=schizophrenia and I take a neuroleptic even though it is for something besides schizophrenia. I'm sure this is so with many others, too. The neuroleptics are used for many things.
