I have been experiencing extreme fatigue for the past 2 months. Typically I am very energetic, workout regularly (circuits, kettle bells, running, biking, yoga), compete in duathlons, snowboard, and race a motorcycle. I am 30 years old, 5'1" tall and my typical weight was 130lbs, however in the past 2 months I have gained weight (due to my inactivity??? nothing else in my life has changed) and now weigh 145lbs.
At the beginning of March I was feeling cold/flu type symptoms which were bothersome, but not enough to keep me home from work. I was on Spring Break (I am a special education teacher) the 3rd week of March and took it as a time to rest and hopefully get over this "cold" or whatever illness I had. I began to feel ok, but when I went back to work I went straight to urgent care after school the first day back feeling extreme flu symptoms. However, I did not have a fever. My white cell count was a little high so I was given z-pack antibiotics. I felt a little better after that, however a month later I was still feeling cold/flu symptoms with increasing fatigue that was inhibiting me from working out completely and even just getting through the day without a nap. I was tested for thyroid issues, pregnancy and mono and all came back negative.
I then went to a specialty clinic for metabolism and endocrine disorders where they ran all of their tests for anything and everything related to such conditions (including more in-depth thyroid tests). All of those tests came back fine. They also did a screening for autoimmune and rheumatoid diseases which came back positive. I was just seen by a rheumatoligist who confirmed that it was a false positive and since my only symptom is extreme fatigue and I do not have any family history of such problems, he is sure it is not anything autoimmune or rheumatoid related.
Now I am back to square one with no idea what is going on and barely able to get through the day. I have no allergies that I am aware of, however have not undergone allergy testing. I do not feel any better when taking over the counter allergy medicine. I take a multi vitamin, have no other vitamin deficiencies and I eat mostly healthy (however not "clean eating" or gluten free, etc). I don't know what to do! Any ideas are greatly appreciated!!!
