All year I had ill health with huge energy crashes and an underactive thyroid that I'm now being treated for. It's within range again now, a month ago TSH was 2.6 and FT4 18 ish.. My gp said I had chronic fatigue issues all year but probably due to the thyroid not the syndrome itself.
The energy crashes had improved massively and if they hit they were mild, but recently I've had a few and I always get very afraid. I can't help but add fear and I cry all day.
Last night I did my daughters Christmas concert. I've agoraphobia so it was a huge test and I'd been worried all day incase I couldn't do it. Not panic just anxiety churning in my stomach. I could barely eat all day , I felt far too sick. I managed a jacket potato and bean and some oats. I couldn't eat tea I picked at a few potatoes.
I went to the church and stayed the full duration. Anxiety wasn't that high, simmering away and I enjoyed it. Afterwards we popped out in the car, I didn't get out. We were in the car about an hour. I started to feel weak and sickly then. Came home forced myself to shower and went to bed. I felt so sick all night and weak. I just knew I'd wake today poorly. I have. I feel weak all over; breathless, woozy head and sickly. It's making me add fear which of course makes my physical symptoms worse. My minds racing with why do I have these huge energy crashes again? Is it anxiety but surely not as I'm never usually this bad. I feel I've got a hangover I feel that bad.
If I ever get like this it's after a huge exposure or seeing my toxic family. Last Wednesday I had a crash exactly like this and it was a day after wrapping presents for 5 hours plus housework.
It passed the next day and I have been fine until last night,.
get very anxious and scared on days like this. I worry why I crash like this? Is it normal? It's not like I just feel tired I feel so weak, sick, fatigued, heavy and woozy. I feel hungover. It's horrible. I wish I could accept it when it happens but I can't as these crashes were now rare. I had a full set of bloods 4 weeks ago and I'm doing well health wise. I get afraid somethings been missed and what if I wake like this Christmas day I wish I didn't add fear but it naturally kicks in and I will feel ill all day plus anxiety on top.
Sorry to post . I'm just feeling afraid today and worried why this happens to me because surely it's not normal. I felt rough as soon as we got home and it got worse and worse. My anxiety runs wild I thought these were behind me. My husband thinks they're just anxiety but it's not as it's so physical and i feel poorly like a hangover and huge energy crash. I get scared about Christmas, what if I faint, what if I end up in hospital.... you name it I am anxious today about it.
I hope it's ok I have posted. My kids are in school and I am sat alone having a cry worrying.
