Having suffered various (presumed) anxiety symptoms for about 3 months, I seem to be getting over most of the physical symptoms. I do still have brief periods of worry, but mostly I seem back to normal psychologically too. Except, I seem to be tired a lot of the time. I'm going to sleep at 9pm, when it wouldn usually be more like midnight and often can't muster the energy to get up once I've got into bed (through sleepiness, rather than anything obviously physical) I also seem to feel weary most of the time, despite sleeping fairly well (maybe waking up briefly once or twice).
 
Has anyone experienced this as a lingering symptom of anxiety? I feel much, much better, but maybe all the fatigue from the past two and a half months is catching up with me? Whilst I am awake I'm still getting every bit as much enjoyment out of stuff as I usually would, so doubt it's anything like depression or ME. Took 'kalms' herbal tablets for around a month, but came off them a week or so ago.

Chris I did got thru the same for awhile but I was depressed a bit too
My a/p was at the highest it had been in some time and like you I go to bed at 9.........
and up at 4am but by 9 am I usually have too have a nap lol
I know I had o much fatigue it was unreal I would sleep all night and then most of day as well
I do find now if I get to much of a good solid sleep ( take trazadone) I am tired and feel like I have not slept at all
I just believe for me anyways it was my anxiety
Take care and let us know how you are

Chris,
 
I've gone through the same thing after a more severe bout of anxiety.  I stay very tired for a couple of months after the symptoms get better.  I, like Lyn, would go to bed early and then be up at 4 am and back into bed after my daughter went to school at 7am and then would occassionally take another nap mid-afternoon!  It seemed like I could not get enough sleep to catch up.  It's gotten much better now, I go to bed later and sleep until I normally used to.  although many times I go back to bed at 7am, that's now because I've stayed up too late at night rather than being so tired all the time.  With time, I think this will pass for you, so hang in there!

Thanks guys. I had another good nights sleep last night. Still feel sleepy, but I guess it will pass.

Still seem to have virtually shed the old symptoms, but unfortunately I have gained a new 'pet disease' to obsess about it my more worried moments :( Had a few mouth ulcers and a rash, which managed to convince me I had HIV, despite being a monogamous, straight, european. Technically I do actually have quite a few of the symptoms, but so do most of the population whenever they get flu and most of them will have had rather more chances to contract it than I have in my relatively sheltered life!!

M depression and anxiety made me really tired and these days I still get times where I just feel so tired. My energy levels arent what they used to be and I have really noticed that since I returned to work a few weeks ago. I come home from work and just want to sleep!!
