Hi friends, my first post here:)
I've been back and forward to my GP about this excessive tiredness and exhaustion both mental and physical that has been going on for nearly a year and has most recently been accompanied by unusual dull and frequent headaches, blurry vision and dizziness. Its approaching the point where I'm unable to lift things about or do basic chores without the need for resting afterward. Also I'm waking up in the morning to find myself as exhausted and tired as i was when i went to bed. Any physical exertion is a difficult task and leaves me needing to rest, and i find i really have to push myself. I first started noticing it when i was working a year ago, i was finding it increasingly difficult to keep up with what i had to do, until i was fired for being 'lazy' - yet i just was becoming too tired to complete my work.

My GP has had me in for blood tests, all checked out fine except for a deficiency in white cells. My GP rules my fatigue and other symptoms down to stress and depression and has given me antidepressants. Having suffered from depression before from a traumatic event, i know enough to know that I'm not depressed and right now have no stresses.

I really don't know what's wrong with me, i consider myself fairly healthy, but I'm at my wits end with being so exhausted that some days i have to lay in bed all day.

Can anyone offer me any advice apart from depression? Thank you!:)
