I'm a 29 year old female. I have been feeling lousy for awhile. Lately, I have been tired all the time. I have lost about 50 pounds recently with some simple dieting, but I havnt been able to lose a pound in over a month. And I have ZERO energy to even think about exercising!! I can't wake up to my alarm in the morning, I'm always late for work, and then I come home and sleep for another 2-3 hours in the evening. My appetite fluctuates. Somedays I don't eat at all, and other days I can't stop. I am on some psych meds for bipolar, which I have been treated for for 10 years and my psychatrist is certain my doses are in check and are not causing this...
In the early spring I had all the symptoms of PCOS, the acne, the obsesity, the irregular period, the facial hair and even the ring around the neck, but as I lost weight and went on birth control, those symptoms went away. I had a ton of blood work in august and I was tested for everything under the sun and everything came back normal.
I had my gallbladder removed in Feb and ever since I have diarreha all the time, especially after my first meal of the day, but that is getting better as time goes on, and as I cut down heavy fat content. But I still feel sometimes annoyed by having to plan my day around my irritatble stomach.
Then over the past week, I have been urinating, well it seemed like all the time. It's not like when you have a UTI, Ive had those before. I started to pay closer attention today and im urinating every 45 minutes. I guess I'm drinking more fluids, for i realized I went through my 2 liter bottle of sparkling water really fast, as well as 2 pints of milk in 2 days... and i have noticed that i feel thirstier than normal.
I went to the doctor last friday and it was suggested I had sleep apnea. While I have lost 50 pounds, I am still over 200 pounds, so it makes sense.I'm going to be having a sleep study within the month.
I have been suffering from some random headaches every few days, too..
I also have been feeling a really weird sensation in my ears, like i have foreign objects in them.. it's more than a fullness, and it's really bothersome. I mentioned that to my doctor, but sometimes I think where I'm a psych patient in the same hospital system, they think I'm crazy.. and maybe I am, i dont know. I definately know something isnt right. I'm trying very hard to lose more weight and be more healthy by eating right and exercising, but I have no energy to do anything. I feel so wiped out all the time. It is so bad that it is effecting my daily life. I'm always tired, and cranky, and plain old miserable.
I don't drink or smoke or do drugs.
Anyone have any clue? I'm getting frustrated and starting to think I'm losing it!!!
