Unbeknownst to me, I became consumed by the very thing that was bugging from the start.

Pls point out any grammatical or punctuation errors.

Unbeknownst is more common in British English than elsewhere, but even there it is very old fashioned, bordering on archaic. Also excessively 'wordy'. I suggest using 'unknown'., rewriting if necessary.

@Tes yeux noirs,
People shouldn't use archaic language. It sounds fake.
