Hey, so for the past 3 days I've had extreme fatigue. It started 3 days ago when I was coming back from uni and I suddenly felt my legs really heavy and I felt overwhelmed with fatigue. I was eating pretty much fine, I ate fine that day too. (quite a lot). 2 days ago, I went out for a walk where I felt my legs heavy again and I was feeling light headed or like I'm walking on the clouds. Then, yesterday I woke up really tired again, I was really anxious over it all day, I went out just to go to the super market and I felt like I was gonna pass out the whole time there,really weak. I couldn't seem to wake up easily a week ago before that thing started but I wasn't feeling that weak then, I could do everyday chores.
Yesterday I woke up nauseous and I was nauseous all day, and today it's the same. Yesterday I was feeling really sick, I couldn't even get out of bed without feeling light headed. Today, I think I'm gonna throw up, I really don't know what to think. Does that seem like Addison's disease?
If so, how long can it be managed with rest without leading to a crisis?
Note: 1) I do suffer with Generalised Anxiety Disorder and severe health anxiety.
2) I started going to the gym 3 weeks ago, it was fine, i felt stronger, no symptoms while I was there, and then 3 days ago this happens. Could it be that? I don't think so.
Please anyone give me some insight? How did you know it was Addison's? Do I have to wait longer?
Thanks for reading and any replies.
