Just going to try asking here, since I can't seem to get too many answers from the Doctors in my area.
For a few years now, my energy levels have taken a nosedive. It's gotten to the point where I can't go out and hold down a job. The last time I tried, just from a part time job, I was so exhausted when I returned home that I could barely wake up to eat dinner. Accomplishing any housework was out of the question. I ended up breaking my left femur, riding my bike home from the job and wrecking because I was so tired. I worked there for 3 days. (I don't drive.)
I ache badly in my joints, and my back. I get migraines. (And for the sake of completion, something else I worry about-) very frequent urination, I can't get through a night without heading to the bathroom at least a couple times. I get gnawing hunger pangs, they make me feel weak and shaky and I *have* to eat to make them go away. Oftentimes my energy will crash afterwards, necessitating a nap. I don't starve myself, I'd just eat if they were normal hunger pangs too- the weird sensations and the energy crash are worrisome. I don't sleep well for another reason as well- it's like my brain won't shut off. (Just rattling stuff off, never know what might be important.)
The thing is, I've had bloodwork done for everything the Doctors can think of for my energy problems. I supposedly don't have diabetes or problems with my thyroid, or even parathyroid. Everything checks out normal. My cholesterol is a little high, because I'm overweight from the lack of energy and the gnawing hunger problem, but that's about it.
I really want to be able to do things again, like hold down a job or just be able to go out if I feel like it. At this point I can't even consider having children, because I simply don't have the energy for it. I just want to go back to having a normal life.
Anyone have any ideas?
