I have been extremely exhausted for about the last six weeks. I am on four different medications for depression and anxiety and have been on the latest two for six months. I am diagnosed as hypothyroid, but all tests are coming back normal. The doctors are claiming it is stress, but I just got out of a stressful job two months ago and am under much LESS stress. The only thing stressing me out is that I am so tired all of the time.

Other symptoms include:
Heat rash often
Heavy sweating (all three of which the drs. chocked up to being overheated...apparently 24/7)
Sligh nausea
Very slight pain in my lower back on the right side of the spine (gets worse when the heat rash appears)
inconsistent periods (They have always been heavy and right on time, but this last one only lasted a day and was spotting only...I am not pregnant...the dr. checked)
