I posted, then lost it. Long story short...
In mid-Sept, I started going through a lot of high stress changes all at once. I was changing jobs, my mother went into assisted living and we went through and dismantled 60 years of my parents lives in a couple of weeks. I made 4 trips in 4 weeks, coming home to work a few days and leave again, and my daughter got engaged (I don’t count this as stress, but it was at the same time and was one of the 4 trips.
About mid October, I woke up thinking my bed had malfunctioned and was vibrating. After unplugging it, I realized the vibration was my insides. Around this time, I also started experiencing insane anxiety and irrational thoughts, as well as depression.
I just had a boat load of blood work done, including full thyroid, CBC, CMP, lipid panel and a cortisol test. Still waiting for results. It feels like, in all the stress at once, my body tipped off it’s axis and won’t reset.
I’ve been prescribed 5 meds, but only agree to take 2, an anti depressant and a sleep med when I have to rest. I find that I handle it all much better when I am rested.
I changed my Dr, as I felt like the first one thought it’s all in my head. I feel crazy, but it’s from the symptoms, not vice versa.
If nothing comes of blood work, I will ask for a neurologist, but I’m very Leary of diagnosis.
For women here, I am also researching BII, breast implant illness, which has a lot of these things as well, so maybe another option.
Feel like his a lot of rambling...
