I'm hoping you can offer me some suggestions / advice. I'm about ready to give up. I've been to see a handful of doctors, but they have not yet come up with a definitive diagnosis. The best I got was "probable chronic fatigue syndrome."
My primary symptom is extreme fatigue / sleepiness. I have been experiencing this since December 2008. I wake up tired and never feel refreshed. I can sleep 11+ hours a night and still need to take a nap or naps the next day. I take ritalin and three different antidepressants hoping to boost my energy, but they aren't helping.
My other symtoms are:
Joint / Muscle Pain (particularly in my fingers, hands, shoulders and neck)
Feeling full all the time / no appetite
Acid reflux / periodic nausea and vomitting (once every 3-4 days)
Weight gain (40+ lbs)
Prior to December 2008, I had no significant medical issues. I have been diagnosed with Hashimotos disease (thyroid levels controlled by meds), irritable bowel syndrome and depression. I had a colonosopy (upper and lower) in January 2010. It found only gastritis.
I have been tested for the following illnesses, all of which came back negative: Celiac's disease, Sjorgren's syndrome, adrenal failure, mono, lyme's disease, and Cushing's disease. Next week, I am going to have a sleep study to rule out sleep disorders.
Does anyone have any idea what might be causing my symptoms? My doctors and I are frustrated by their inability to find a diagnosis. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
