Best Ways To "see Stress Coming"
I have a pretty intense schedule and was seemingly doing really fine with it. Then, out of the blue, I got hit with some sizable anxiety and mild panic attacks. Went to see a functional medicine doc and she thinks it's probably adrenal fatigue (is giving me a bunch of tests to confirm).
My question is what biomarkers could have helped me understand if I was "running too hot" prior to experiencing physical symptoms? I'm taking it easier now but would like over time to work back to my prior schedule. But I want to minimize the risk that I over-do it and harm my health.
Any thoughts on tests I can run or other things I can do (e.g., resting HR, HRV) to assess where I am even when I don't feel like I'm burning myself out?
