Hello all. I have been on Hydroxy since June. I have days where I am convinced it is working. I feel alert, happy and able to complete all I need to do. I fit in some exercise too. Days like this I feel very optimistic. But today I awoke with that 'hungover' feeling, painful swollen hands, generalised stiffness, fogginess. I am feeling nauseous and dizzy. The dizzyness is happening more often lately. I am increasingly tired, my house is a tip and the shopping is not done. Will things ever feel better or is this it now? I am 47 on Tuesday and had not expected my late forties to be like this.
