A lightheaded, foggy feeling (head full of cotton) esp while walking and/or outside, sounds to me like a vestibular problem, not a psychological problem. I'm not a doctor so I don't know, but if you can find a doctor who specializes in vestibular issues, it would be worth getting yourself checked.
Vestibular = inner ear, equilibrium, etc.
I had that along w/ many other distressing symptoms when my latest bout of vestibular issues started. Most regular doctors don't know anything about it. Finally I found a ear nose and throat specialist who diagnosed me w/ MAV (migraine associated vertigo) and put me on a medication which has helped a lot. I stopped having the foggy head a while ago. I still have other issues but they are mild now that i'm on the meds.
Just wanted to suggest this. It's possible your issues are not physical but I know that kind of symptom can be.
Good luck to you.
