Hey everybody, I was hoping maybe someone could help me out. I've been experiencing a lack of energy, and trouble sleeping for sometime now and have been to doctors everything was basically fine, went to a psych and said some of my chemicals were off (dont remember exactly but he put me on lexapro and abilify) but they did not help me at all. I took them for around 2 months and neither me nor anyone around saw any difference with them so I spoke to the doc and he said I could just get off them if they werent doing anything.

Fast forward to now and not only am I still experiencing fatigue, lack of energy, and sometimes difficulty getting to sleep and staying asleep. But other times I will be extremely tired, sleep for 8-10 hours, wake up and than in another hour or two ill feel tired and nod off while watching TV or something.

I also have some other strange symptoms like occasionally itchyness on my palms of hands and soles of feet. Also get some shooting pains in my joints every now and than.

I'm having a very hard time functioning like this and would appreciate if anyone has any ideas... feel free to ask further questions of me if it will assist in pointing me in the right direction. Thank you.
