I'm 17 and female.

I have been extremely lathargic my whole life...I can barely walk around without running out of breath and needing to sit down because my muscles start to burn. I can sleep and sleep without ever feeling rested. When I wake up in the mornings I can't eat anything or I'll immediately throw it up. I have an awful pain in my rib cage area and sometimes they feel like the bottom ones are moving. I can't extend my arms out because it hurts. I have very weak muscles and they tire easily. I have sharp pains in the heart area of my chest.


Please help me...I'm tired of being so tired all the time.

I would try a nutritionist to rule out deficiencies first, anemia can do some nasty damage like that.
