Hello, for around 9 weeks now I have been constantly tired. What little sleep I get is unrefreshing. Despite being exhausted I cannot get a quality sleep of any lenghth, hour here or there, 10 minutes, 5 minutes, just not enough. If I do seemingly drop off for what may be a decent sleep I wake up feeling confused and sometimes have strange racing dreams that kind of make me scared to try sleep.
I get dull headaches on the left side of my head (sometimes right) and sometimes blurry vision. Limbs feel heavy with slight pins and needles and sometimes I feel like my legs cannot support me though they actually do. I am constanly in a feeling like I have the flu at varyiing levels of intensity. Occasionally (daily) I get what seems to be a rush emitting from my head down to arms and extnding through the rest of methat seems to debiltate me and makes me agitated, stressed and extremly edgy, almost like a stroke with accomapanying consufsion, like my left side is my right and vice versa. i just want to lie down. I cannot even stand and walk for substained periods without feeling exhausted.
I am off work due to the condition. I have been to my doctor, had blood tests which are all clear including thyroid etc. My apetitie is decreased and although I am eating I have lost arounf 8lbs in 4 weeks which considering I am no longer doing the gym due to the illness (last 4 weeks and used to 3 0r 4 times weekly) is another concern. Currently doc thinks I am stressed and anxious and has put me on a course of anti depressants - no history of this and I don't particulalry have a stressful life to my mind. I am not certain how stress could manifest itself in the physical reactions I am having either, then again I am not a medical person.
I am at my whits end with worry and fed up of exisitng in this conditition with no diagnosis. All this came out of the blue with no previous record of illness. I am 37 and slightly overweight but don't smoke, do drink quite heavily but not touched a drop for a over week in the hope it may help.
