Suddenly feel so tired and flu-like for 45 minutes

Anyone else has this? I had it before but never this bad. I am just walking or at home in my "normal" WD and all of a sudden i feel so incredibly tired. Like i got a shot with a flu or something. Every muscle feels tired,...my eyelids even start to lower. I feel so shaky. It really hits me like a wall. Most of the time when i ly a bit and drink water it turns away after 45 mins.
Is this because of the hormons/adrenaline that have problems with being tensed all the time? or is it because stress is being relieved?
Man i have it now and can barely type or lift a glass. Scary and weird

does ring a bell for anyone?

Re: Suddenly feel so tired and flu-like for 45 minutes

Any idea how or what? Now is "tired" a subjective and general term. But i am talking about 30-45 mins not being able to do simple tasks. So incredibly tired.
Is this perhaps cause my body needs to rebuild adrenaline or something?

Re: Suddenly feel so tired and flu-like for 45 minutes

Yeap, the "tired" in withdrawal is unlike any tired I've ever felt before...I'd collapse on the floor sometimes...it's that bad!

Re: Suddenly feel so tired and flu-like for 45 minutes

Yes the achey feeling and muscle pain. All WD related. There is this so called Paxil flu, not sure if Laxapro has one too.

Re: Suddenly feel so tired and flu-like for 45 minutes

Thats me when I get home from work. I start to let down and wamm I crash hard for an hour or so then start to come back up. I wish it didn't happen, but it does get it all out of my system in one shot so I can enjoy the rest of the evening.

Re: Suddenly feel so tired and flu-like for 45 minutes

I really think it has something to do with adrenaline. The way it comes and goes. And the intensity of it;..can barely walk for 30 mins.
I dont have muscle pain or twitches.

Re: Suddenly feel so tired and flu-like for 45 minutes

Yes, yes and yes. Have experienced this often during withdrawal - all that seems to help is lying down and sleeping it off, if you can.

Re: Suddenly feel so tired and flu-like for 45 minutes

I hate being so tired I can't do even basic tasks...

There is an event coming up in less than two weeks that I seriously want to go to that is income related. I may not get to go because I get tired too easily...

This is sooooo frustrating!

Re: Suddenly feel so tired and flu-like for 45 minutes

If I'm going through that stage where I wake at 4am with intense anxiety, I crash around 10-11am, and I could fall asleep driving my car when it comes over me, I feel weak and I have to work at keeping my eyes open, I lie down and fall asleep in seconds and an hour later it's gone. Probably a crash after being full of adrenaline. Also when I lay down with the kids at bedtime I would be alsep for the night by 8pm. Normally I'm up until 11-12pm.
