For 3 1/2 years now I have had a chronic hunger but it has gradually gotten worse along with the fatigue. The hunger has a connection to the fatigue and to sleep. I cannot sleep when I am hungry, cannot, as soon as I eat I am extremely tired, but when the hunger returns I am much more awake. If I sleep just 30 minutes I will wake up starved. I gained a lot of weight then I lost it all and was doing better then recently I was overcome by such severe fatigue I've barely been able to function. Coincidently, the hunger became so severe now it is 24/7. It does not matter what I eat or how much I eat I am in a constant state of feeling starved. It is keeping me from sleeping. The fatigue is so overwhelming I can't do anything. I have to keep eating in the night just to sleep but I have gained weight and do not ever want to gain the weight back, I think about it constantly and know that if this continues I will either have to gain weight to sleep or I will eat normal and will be even more miserable and sleep deprived. When I gained the weight I was severely severely depressed. I just want the hunger to stop. I have been tested for any obvious reasons, blood sugar, thyroid, all the tests my doctors could think of. Has anybody heard of this chronic hunger being associated with chronic fatigue syndrome? I didn't have this hunger until I started having the fatigue. I was also given medication that is given to obese people to stop hunger and it didn't work for me which left doctors baffled. I just saw an endochrinologist, and she said she has never heard of this but she said she will look into it.
