Extreme weakness

Hey everyone! I was feeling good for the last few days and actually slept well. When I woke up I felt kind of off and realized I was extremely weak. I tried going for a walk and could barely walk half a mile. I can't tell if this is anxiety or not, do other people ever feel this bad randomly? I feel like all my muscles are fatigued and my body is so tired.

 I thought I was doing better so I'm surprised I feel like this since I haven't really been anxious for the last few days.

I did start taking a super low dose of Lexapro a week and a half ago, maybe that's it?
