Flare up

Posted , 6 users are following.

does anyone else feel anxious and cant think straight during a flare up. sometimes my flares up differ from flat and lethargy to full on feeling anxious- worst case of anxiety the other day during a flare up- could not control remitting thoughts at all, heart was pounding, felt awful. Lasted a day but still unwell days later, but anxiety calmed down.

    yes im in a bad flare at the moment and having a really hard time dealing with the anxiety. i have a lot of health issues and i cant shake the thoughts of something bad happening or my body completely breaking down, and the worst of it is i know that the anxiety is making it worse..

      Hi Nicola when you say hot and cold, I'm wondering if you get the same as me.

      I suddenly, whatever the weather come over incredibly cold, like to my bones. I literally shake with the cold. The heating can be on, I'll be wearing a thermal vest, layers of clothing, have a blanket over me, even a hot water bottle at times. My husband will be sat in a t-shirt!

      On other occasions I overheat, as if I've been sat in a sauna, I end up soaking flannels in icy water and laying them over myself (incidentally it's not a menopausal hot flush). These hot/cold incidents happen randomly although there is a pattern of sorts with the cold, I generally get that late afternoon when my energy levels have been depleted.

      These days I look forward to bedtime and put my PJs on around 5pm........what a sad existence this is 🤔.
