  Just quick ? how miny of you get chronic fatigue from your anxiety, I'm talking like just doing house work or any type of hard work that you need to rest after doing just such a thing and how long dose it take you to recover from it if you really over do it, do you need bed rest or what.

I do get really tired when I am down/anxious. I think it's because our minds are racing with all that negative's exhausting!
And yes I sit down and take a breather...and force myself to get up and continue coz I'm a fighter...some will say you should take it easy etc. but this kid keeps goin - for good or bad!
All of this will pass..and you will soon be feeling better I promise!
Just a couple of thoughts...
Have you had a blood test lately..could you be low on iron?
Also wondering if the meds you are on..could they be making you feel this way?
Take good care.

If I'm really anxious and panicky or have a panic attack, I am typically so exhausted I can barely sweep the kitchen or vacuum, and would prefer to just lay in my bed all day.

Exhaustion is what I feel after every panic attack, that and extreme depression.

How long does it take me to recover from really overdoing it.(if I work out or clean a lot).. for me? Sometimes a WEEK. I know that sounds absurd but I'll be in pain for days from overworking myself.

Isn't anxiety fun? hehe

many docs think that being an anxiety sufferer makes us immune to all other illnesses, an often undiagnosed cause of cronic fatigue is a sleep disorder such as sleep apnea, most but not all are heavy snorers

tensing up and fighting back against the anxiety can exhaust you too
