Is this unpleasant feeling vague and non-specific, or anxiety more definitely linked to some particular object, person or situation ?
If you are usually a nervous person, and especially if you have had anxiety disorders and panic atacks before, you may be extra sensitive to feeling insecure in unusual situations - such as being alone in a house that is not your own.

Hi,

I am not a nervous person at all, I just have this insecure feeling about being in that house, i have someone staying with me but I am still very nervous and keep waking up at the slightest noise. Very strange and totally out of character for me. Never in my life have i had anxiety disorders or panic attacks, so this is a very strange and unsettling feeling for me.
