Hi please help me as I am in urgent need. Over the last serveral years I have been experiencing many symptoms and I dont know what it is. It started when I was around 20 years old and now I am 24. I remember the first day clearly when it started. I was at work just doing my thing and all of a sudden I get hit by an intense sensation of fatigue and dishabilitation. When this happens my mind and body seems to shut down and I feel like colapsing. It seems to to come in episodes, one moment I am fine and then I have this sort of attack again, sometimes they are intense sometimes they are mild. I have been to the doctor and he said I was depressed and they have prescribed me with anti-depresssants, which havent worked at all. The thing is I was once a chirpy and bubbly person allways positive and lived life to the full. I have never had anything in my life to make me overly depressed and nothing trumatic has happened to me so I am very sceptical about this diagnosis. I now have depression and anxiety as a symptom but do not think it is the underlying cause. Other symptoms include: everyday feeling constantly drained/drowsy and lacking energy and stamina to even complete simple tasks, weak muscles, mild diareoa and intestinal gas, diminished sensations, no short-term memory, cant concentrate, intense brain fog (I literally cant think or trust my judgements/desicions), irritability, itchy eyes, nausea. I have gained weight and can sleep for over 12 hours as I am so tired all the time. Please can someone help me with possible a diagnosis, as I am desperate and at my wits end.
