Alright, so I actually went to bed remotely early last night; passed out on the couch at two and just woke up now at nearly 5 AM my time.
 
I feel weird, like a sense of restlessness, almost slight rage, and my head just feels so weird, almost dizzy but almost not.
 
I've been feeling like this for DAYS where my head is almost in a fog and just feels sort of heavy.  It used to turn into a migraine but now I'm just in a permanant state of heavy fog.  (except when I drink) AND I didn't drink last night.
 
I feel like how I was feeling when my dosage on the Lexapro was too high when I jumped from 10 mgs to 20 mgs and I have to drop it downt o 15 mgs.  I'm wondering if I should try lowering it to 15 mgs for a couple days to see if it helps any?
 
Maybe my brain is screaming TOO MUCH and we don't NEED to be on this high of a dose Twiggy!!! and I just am not really understanding my brain yet ... oi
 
do I sound crazy yet to anyone?  I feel crazy.  I feel restless, and I was SO exhausted when I passed out on the couch and moved to my bed after a few minutes on the couch. 
 
Now I'm WIDE awake on NOT even 3 hours of sleep.
 
yay
 
Any thoughts? Opinions?

Maybe your just tired you didn't get that much sleep last night and when u do that it can cause u to feel weird. I would try and get at least 6 to 8 hours of sleep a night.

if it keeps up I would put the lexapro back to 10 for a while to see if this stops it

Have you had your thyroid checked? My mom was just like that when she developed hypothyroid. Is your pulse normal? Her pulse was really high. She said it felt like the rest of the world was moving in slow motion at the time!

My pulse is around 85 right now, so I'd say that's low.

My thyroid? No. I don't have health insurance so I didn't get it checked.

I could, when I actually have some money.

I think my doctor will try to brush it aside though.

What goes into checking a thyroid? Is there needles? *EEK*

Yes they have to draw blood but if thyroid is off it can really screw with you.  I feel like your description during that time of the month and when my allergies are bothering me (cedar fever).  It really sucks feeling this way and sometimes it'll send me into a full panic attack but try to take deep breaths and make sure you eat a little something every couple hours.  I really think you need a couple of nights where you can get at least 6hrs of sleep in.
