Have you researched whether you have diabetes, candida problems or Celiac Disease? Candida esp. causes fatigue and exhaustion. You could experiment with your diet to find out. Omit sugar (inluding fruits), yeasts, and all glutens (wheat, rye, barley, oats) for a few weeks and see how you feel. Might be worth a try. Good luck to you! -C
: I have had fatigue contiuously for the past 4 years and can not figure out whether I have CFS or not. It did not start after any flu or virus, just came on after a very hard year. Apart from frequent neck aches and headaches I don't suffer from any muscle pain, I sleep like a log for up to 11 hours at a time but just don't feel refreshed at all. I get dizzy spells and nausea, but don't suffer from any allergies.My doctor has given me the all clear every 6 months for the past four years, except for putting me on anti-depressants, which has done nothing to alleviate the fatigue. I still study and do well, don't suffer from mental confusion, but need to take regular naps. What is wrong with me??? Its hard to keep going sometimes when all I want to do is crawl under the blankets and sleep!! I have tried naturopathy, homeopathy, acupuncture, none seem to help very much. Does this sound like CFS? Can anyone help?
