I don't know what is wrong with me and the doctors don't seem to know anything either. I have a bunch of random symptoms and I just don't feel like myself anymore.
-I'm a 19 yr old female and I am excessively tired all the time. I feel like I'm 85 instead of 19. I always feel so worn out and like I'm in a fog or really lazy. It's not that I don't want to do things, it's just that I can't. I have very little energy. I wake up and an hour later I'm ready to go back to sleep or take a nap. My parents think I'm just lazy. My doctors have tested me for anemia, vitamin deficiencies, and thyroid problems but everything came back fine. I also don't think my doctors are taking me seriously because they seem to think it's a "lifestyle" issue but I know it's not. I'm not depressed, I exercise regularly, I'm not any more stressed out than normal, and my sleeping habits aren't any different than they've ever been. I am so tired of not having the energy to go out and have fun and actually live life!
-I don't think this has anything to do with my fatigue but maybe it has something to do with the overall problem. I get excessively thirsty during the night. I keep bottles of water near my bed and I've gone through as much two and half bottles a night. I don't consume caffeine or excessive sodium. My sodium levels are actually a little low. I eat normally, but I have noticed that in general I'm more thirsty than I am hungry so I drink a lot during the day too.
-I black out almost every time I stand up. My doctor didn't run any tests or anything but she said I'm probably standing up too quickly or something. I've tried standing up slower and not changing positions too quickly but it still happens. Sometimes I even fall down. My heart starts pounding, everything goes black and I get a headache. A few days ago this happened and afterwards I got a really bad headache, worse than even the migraines I get and it lasted for like 2 days.
What is going on with me?? Does anyone have any similar experiences?
