I wish I were more help... It's taken 12 yrs to find a Dr to help me & give me a diagnosis of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I'm going to a Rhumetologist next week. 12 yrs of being tired all the time & trying to live a somewhat normal life. The worst part is that people don't understand. I look perfectly normal.
I have a Severe Degenerative Disk. I was Prescribed Neurontin for the pain, but doesn't do any good. It's been a great substitute for the Depression, Anxiety & Insomnia! I really like it! Unfortunately, I found that because it's considered an Anti seizure medicine, it lowers the effects of Birthcontrol which I have been taking! yikes! Not happy about Dr's not telling me this before prescribing...
Anyhow, I also take Calcium & Magnesium before bed which helps. You should also take Omega 3, Multi-vitamins, & Vitamin D. Vitamin B is supposed to be helpful but I don't like it, make me feel sick.
Oh, the Neurontin is an appetite suppressant... I haven't lost any weight but nothing sounds good & have to make myself eat.
I also have Thyroid Probs. There is a product called Thyrostim. It's great! It's a Thyroid support
I've been able to lower my Thyroid-S (Natural Thyroid) from 240mg to 60mg!
I'm prob not much help, but hopefully helped atleast alittle
