I am looking for any help I can get. I am so tired all the time. Often I come home from work and sleep from 5pm-8 or 9pm. Sometimes I have to fight to stay awake at work. I tend to run low grade fevers in the afternoon (99-100.6) as well. This fatigue has been going on for about 3 years now, but I can tell it is getting worse. I am a 24 year old female who used to be active. I yawn all the time and I can barely force myself to work out anymore. I finally went to the doctor for help a few months ago. First, he did a battery of blood tests, all of which came out normal, including TSH for thyroid. Thinking that my fatigue was due to anxiety or depression, he put me on fluoxetine (prozac). I have been on it 3 months now, and it hasn't helped a bit with the fatigue. It helps how I deal with it...I don't get as upset and frustrated, but it is still there. I'm just trying to figure out what might be going on. About 3 years ago I had a somnoplasty done on my tonsils (it shrinks them) due to chronic tonsilitis from tonsil stones. I still get the stones, and can tell because my throat gets sore and my glands swell. I told this to my dr. and he didnt seem too interested. He didn't even look in my throat or feel my glands. Could this be causing my fatigue? Also, after being x-rayed by a chiropractor, I found that I have a reverse curve in my neck, causing my neck muscles to tighten. I often have neck pain and headaches...could this be causing the fatigue? Could it be hormonal? I had CMV about 5 years ago, could that have something to do with this? I feel like my dr. thinks I am just making all this up. I am so frustrated and don't know where to turn. Any ideas or suggestions would be much appreciated. Also, I am looking for a new doctor who is more open to treating fatigue. I live in the Joliet area in Illinois...anyone know of any good doctors who accept Hmo's? Thanks for your help!
