Hello. Two nights ago I began to feel very tired. It was nighttime anyway, so I went to bed, assuming that the anxious/stressful day I had on that particular day was the cause. I didn't sleep that well that particular night. I woke up the next day feeling tired again. I assumed this was due to my lack of good sleep earlier at night. I was tired pretty much the whole day, although a nap seemed to lessen my tiredness a bit. Today I woke up and still feel tired, but still not as tired as the day before. I also have a stiff neck/back and muscle tension around the area, (since this morning) and swollen, slightly painful (when I open my jaw wide) lymph nodes in my neck. I am experiencing shortness of breath, but I assume this is related to my worrying about my symptoms rather than something else. I haven't checked for a fever yet.
The only reason this worries me is because someone in my neighborhood had bacterial meningitis recently, and someone who is in contact with them regularly went to my house for a brief period of time (showing no signs of infection though). I realize this is unlikely though, because the person who had it is now on antibiotics and I have already had my meningitis vaccinations (although I am not sure what kind of meningitis I was vaccinated for). The symptoms I am experiencing now are more like slight annoyances than actual "problems" right now, but I am a hypochondriac sometimes.
I also noticed that I am sweating a lot right now at this particular moment.
what do you think? how much of this is actually caused by anxiety?
