So, for the past 4 months, I have had several different health issues coming up and have been to several different doctors. The first was in August, I became extremely tired daily. Would sleep my regular hours at night (8-10 hours) then would get up in the morning, drink caffinated coffee and about an hour later, sit there are struggle to stay awake. I think I could sleep 24 hours a day if it was allowed (have children)/
This is still continueing, there is no certain time of day that this happens and it does not matter if I just ate a meal or not, it seems to occur regardless. In September, we had our daughter's 3rd birthday party. I had to leave my guests and go lay down during the party, I was so embarrased!
Have had 3 different types of doctor check me, all did their own blood work, all came back normal, except the beginning of a thyroid problem, but dr. does not think that my numbers are low enough on the scale to make me this tired.
Until it is hopefully determined why this is occuring, I was give Nuvigil. Wow, that stuff is sooo expensive!!!!! I am having a sleep study done on Jan. 3rd as a last possibility. (I do not want to do the sleep study, it makes me uncomfortable to lay there being monitored and recorded....grin).
None of the doctor's mentioned Cronic Fatigue and I am wondering why? Someone told me that you are diagnosed with CFS when they can't find anything else wrong, do you all think that is true? Is there a test that is done for CFS?
Sorry this post was so long, thanks for reading
