I am new to this/any health forum and am looking to share experiences and perhaps pick a few brains on Anxiety and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
I definitely have anxiety and am now wondering if I also have CFS. Or maybe something else?
Brief list of symptoms...
Fatigue (groggy & heavy type tiredness)
Feeling detached and 'spaced out'
Muscle weakness (especially in extremities and legs)
Sensitive to light and sound
Sometimes feels like I have flu or a bad virus (although I know I haven't)
Feels like I sometimes have a lump in my throat
Easily tired out
There are a few more general symptoms, but the more I read my lengthy list of symptoms, the worse I feel! Ha ha :-D
I have had anxiety issues on and off for many years and also hormone induced migraines. This year the migraines are definitely worse and so too is the anxiety. I had an 8 day brutal migraine early/mid September, followed by 8 days of severe brain fog/fuzzy head. I haven't been the same since. I'm also wondering if my symptoms are migraine related? I've had 2 full blood tests done and 2 urine samples taken. All came back normal/clear and healthy. I've also been to see an ENT consultant and he has ruled out an inner ear virus. He also checked my throat and balance. I had a full eye examination last week and my eyes are in great shape. I have an MRI booked next week and am also waiting an app have an ECG recorder fitted for 48 hours. I have not yet seen a neurologist or anyone else. My Doctor is saying it is all down to anxiety.
Is anybody experiencing anything similar? I feel more anxious not knowing what is happening to my own body!
Any replies/advice would be greatly appreciated... x
