Hello everyone, i was hoping someone can help me. I have had depression since i was 7 years old. But lately for the past few years especially the past few months i have been extremely fatigued, i am 20 yro female, have one son(has autism) when i was 17, married and go to school. I get sick easily and have a list of symptoms. here they are

Breast: pain in right, clear, oily discharge, weird looking dry patch near nipple.
Diagnosis: still don't know (they did a MRI, Ultrasound, and Mammo and they said they didn't see cancer but they were not sure what to account it for, they checked my pituitary gland with a blood test and everything was normal as well, said the patch was excema.)

Mental:irritability, forgetfulness, trouble recalling memory, trouble focusing, really tired, sleep 12-13 hours if im allowed to if i sleep 8 i have to drink lots of coffee with concerta.
Diagnosis: they said it was depression and ADD they gave me adderal but it gave me diarrhea and headaches switched me to concerta but its the same.
Medications: Adderal Xr, Concerta 36mg, Wellbutrin XL 300mg (which worked great but my insurance no longer covers it, the generic makes me go crazy) Setraline, Prozac, Effexor,

GI: had gallstones and my gallbladder was removed in August. (was found during breast MRI)

Cyst: Have had episodes of cyst in kidneys and ovaries. The cyst in the ovaries would sometimes erupt bleeding into my stomach and causing extreme pain and diarrhea.

UTI: lots of them that keep coming back.

Overall this is really taking a toll on me, i can barely do my work at school and the house chores are piling up. I already had to drop one class and im not sure how to get through this tiredness. Please any help is appreciated
