This 'red alert ' wired feeling is literally driving me crazy.
For me it is the most distressing of all the symptoms.....I simply cannot relax or switch off. It's like my whole body is electrically charged, stuck in a weird panic state.
It is awful and I don't know what to do about it.
I seem to have got into a horrible pattern where I am in a crash for a few weeks, can hardly get out of bed or do anything, then the energy starts to return, but quickly becomes this 'red alert' wired state....which goes on until I crash again.
It is a living hell
Two or three things have finally helped me with this extreme wiredness:Adrenergize -- by Enzymedica Therapy: It's an adrenal glandular supplement, not a stimulant, just the ground up glands. It actually really helps, especially in the morning.
Folinic (not folic) acid (Folacal by Thorne): This really helps me. I take one about 1/2 hour before bed. In the past, if I'd wake up around 4am or so to use the bathroom, I wouldn't be able to go back to sleep. But if I take another, and hold it under my tongue for a minute or so before swallowing it with a little water, I'm sound asleep within 5-10 minutes and fall into a deep sleep until my alarm goes off.
And finally, adding a little whole organic sugar at the end of meals -- or to oatmeal or a similar complex carb 'dessert'. Also, eating less protein in the evenings.
