Thanks everyone. Sorry I was so longwinded. I have had sleep issues for years, never a night that I don't wake up during the night, I am on Lexapro 10mg and I am sure that makes one feel really groggy all the time like I do, and I am on a antihistamine daily for allergies and I am sure that ties in with the weird feelings also. I am 49 and have not had my monthly since early January and I am sure that ties in with the fatigue and sleep problems also as I am sure I am going through the change, have had problems for a while with hot flashes, being flushed, night sweats, etc.! Too much going on at one time. At least the Lexapro makes me have this I don't care feeling. Since it is warming up I feel some form of exercise like walking and tennis will help me. And Sunshine1108, the shower technique does help, I need to do that more often.
