Sooo hard. I'm living off of like 6 hrs sleep and I tried to have a nap today and that was a fail to any tips please anyone experianced this?
I think you need to go to the gp and checked out hun.
I think it may be anxiety according to doctor google, but still worrying though

first of all... stay away from dr google... repeat after me "Doctor google is Bad' :bookworm:
But seriously, you wont do yourself any favours looking it up on the internet, you need to see a gp.I would be worried about anaemia.... do you have low iron? This can often cause shortness of breath, but you need tobe checked out and have a proper examination.
Yeah il book an appointment for Monday :(
I asked "Dr Husband" who may or may not be just as bad as Dr google. His answer was "sounds like she has anxiety" I said "so what about the pressure in her head?" He said "she's exhausted" I wanted more than that from him but he just said "tell her to go to her GP" :rolleyes: sorry, can't be much more help than that. I am glad you have an appointment for tomorrow though. Let us know how you go and good luck!
Sounds like anxiety attacks to me. Pressure in your head could be high bloodpressure and exhaustion. Are you on any anti depressants by any chance? Sometimes they can mimic anxiety attacks when you forget to take them.
Anyhoo, I hope your GP can tell you what it is. He/she might be able to check things like your iron levels and your thyroid.
Hope everything's ok :hugs:
Thanx for the answers guys, I'm not on anti depressants but super exhausted so prob anxiety related it's horrible how your symptoms manifest like that from stress. I hope the doc can help me.
Good luck with your appointment today!
