Hi my flu family friends

Has anyone suffered from hyperactivity whilst on flu?

I've just had a whole day of it and its exhausting.

It's similar to panic attacks (which i had a long time ago) but without the vomitting or diarrhoea.

Symptoms are fast breathing and fast talking and generally acting like a Tigger. It's not particularly pleasant as one is not in control at all.

I had an episode a couple of weeks ago but it disappeared after i took the flu.

The only time i suffered with this before is shortly after my mum died a couple of years ago.

Another side effect maybe?

    When I was first put on it my doc described me (after the 1st month) as being practically manic!

    But it has calmed down and I am back to my normal Eeyore self!

    hmmmmmmmm, hyper eh, what is VERY important is for you to tell your docs about this, it may be a sign of other things, don't worry tho, there's nothing to worry about :wink: it's just you may need different meds ok :huh: :ok:

    see my post \"correct diagnosis ??, unipolar or bipolar, are you sure ??\" for more info :ok: dont forget i said \" it MAY be a sign of other things \" :wink: :mrgreen:

    Hi Psycho,

    thanks for the concern. But doc knows (in fact detected) I was a bit manic. She isn't worried. Believes it is just a reaction to feeling better for the 1st time in years.

    A lot more stable and level now.

    Hi Gonna get betta, Psychochief and Lelly

    Thank you all for your responses.

    Gonna get betta - your site name is certainly positive. Hows it going?

    Psychochief - i wasn't sure if you meant me or Lelly when you said 'mention it to your doctor'?

    This is the first full day as a Tigger in just over 21 weeks of taking flu so i think unless it repeats itself a lot, the current meds should be ok for now.

    I did look at your very informative post uni or bi polar. My symptoms are definitely uni polar.

    Lelly and Psychochief - i'll leave you to get on with your good humoured slanging match.

    Best wishes to one and all. :wink:

    hiya Meganpooch :mrgreen:

    i was just refering to anybody in general, it's allways worth checking about the bi-polar lark :huh: :ok:

    sorry about the side attraction, got carried away a bit (not by the peeps in the white coats this time :cheers: :whistle: ) lol, with a bit of luck i'm going in to a manic phase lol :rainbow: :ok:

    be good peeps,

    Ken ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ :mrgreen: :cheers:

    Hi Ken

    No apologies needed. I was rather enjoying the banter. Unfortunately i cannot join in during the day as i'm at work. I can read but not reply as i don't have external mail. Can be very frustrating.

    This website is a bit like a drug in itself.

    I'm back to Piglet mode today, Eeyore is a bit too sombre.

    Thanks again. Your posts always bring a smile to my chops.

    I agree, this site is addictive.

    But I mainly access it on my blackberry at work hence some of the typos.

    Sorry for getting off topic - I do tend to go off at a tangent now and again.

    bets of luck to everyone,

    lelly xx
