spent time chatting with friend this morning, felt bit tired and as if starting to get a migraine, vision slightly odd and difficulty concentrating. After she left I felt very very cold so curled up on sofa with hot water bottle and cover, watched some you tube videos and promptly fell asleep. Just really exhausted as if a couple of hours chatting was just too much for my brain!

I have coeliac disease and hypothyroidism so take levothyroxine and also HRT - I am 49 and no periods for 3-4 years.

Was it in fact migraine or something else?

How are you feeling now, Ruby ?

I have several friends who give me a headache, and exhaust me wink

Have you been fine otherwise? I wonder if your thyroxine levels have dipped.

OK now just tired, didn't do much yesterday. Googling led me to 'directed attention fatigue' which sounds very similar. I had radio on in background and think that may have overloaded my ability to pay attention, not really normal to be so tired though. And poor friend she is not difficult or anything so not a specific reaction to her, we were just generally chatting.

It could be thyroxine issue, find it hard to know when dose is right, physically I have been able to do more recently but maybe partly that I have also been able to rest more (not currently working). I feel like I can't use thyroxine well eg. Skin is sallow/ yellow which is symptom of hypothyroidism even though it's being treated.

I was on a higher dose a few months back and didn't feel well, over anxious. Hmm though have been feeling that again recently so could be dose is still too high. Back to gp I guess though they never have much to offer other than redoing blood tests.

It was very odd yesterday though, pure exhaustion just from talking/listening.
