Body Snatcher

I've had some sort of weird thing going on with my body for the last two days. Sudden onset of dizziness, exhaustion, muscle weakness, head pain and confusion. Almost went to the ER yesterday, but a phone call to a family doctor lead us to believe it could be overall exhaustion coupled with my migraine and my body just "gave out".

Two days in a row I slept from 3pm in the afternoon until 8 am, with an hour of wakefulness in the evening. Total exhaustion. I felt like someone put a heavy blanket on top of me so I could barely move and it was like someone clamped a big metal appendage on my head, because I felt pressure and weight like never before. Strange, right?

I feel okay now. Tired, achey, like I did yesterday morning. Hope the "heavy" doesn't return. Too much to do. I miss my kids, too.

I'll be back soon.

Our bodies do have a way of saying STOP!! We should listen to them before they start screaming CARDIAC ARREST !!

Take care of yourself. Someone else can always make the soap.

Ohhh do take care of yourself.. that's not good. Your body knows best so taking to the bed is often wise. Are you taking a multivitamin? And have you gotten your thyroid checked? I have thyroid issues and your symptoms sound exactly like mine did (do at times when the dose needs changing). A simple blood test will tell. Take care of yourself hon xx

Oh how awful. My sister has had horrible headaches/migraines for 3 weeks straight so maybe something is going around. Hope you feel better soon.
