Anybody feel feel uncontrollable need to pace?

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi Ladies,

This is my first try at opening a topic. Going through it right now, and wondering if anyone else has this issue.

There are times, usually after a brutal round of hot flashes or a particularly stressful day/week/month, that I literally cannot sit still. If I'm not up pacing around, I feel like I will explode out of my skin.

My sister gets the same.

Are we weird, or are there others like us?

Any suggestions for getting that to go away?

It drives our husbands bonkers, and is rather inconvenient at work!

Thanks for any and all words of encouragement!

    Yes I'm like that right now. It's out of control. I am currently unemployed and I sat at a desk a lot and I don't know how how did it for 3yrs of this! I have to pace myself all day and keep myself busy otherwise I stay in one place and the anxiety kicks in! So weird I find things to do all the time to distract myself. But at the end of the day I noticed my back is starting to kill me from standing all day! Crazy hormones yes! I'm waiting and praying for this to all pass! 🙏🏼🙏🏼
