I am about to have a phone call from the Doctor this afternoon to discuss 'symptoms' as in extreme tiredness on a day to day basis, esp after exercise, i liken it to being really hungover.
Each day is a bit of a struggle, and feel life is sort of passing me by.
I went to the doctors on a number of occasions about a year ago, and had lots of tests to try and understand why i feel this way. I was passed from Doctor to Doctor with no real consistency in terms of discussion, diagnosis ranged from Depressed (including asking if intended to harm myself or others, I am generally happy go lucky, but obviously being this all of the time does take its toll), to questionnaires about my state of mind.
Ultimately i am wanting to put this to bed once and for all, i don't think its normal to be this way (i am 41yrs old, and in reasonably fit, i like to run marathons once in a while, well i used too, and have two young boys). At the moment, i struggle to get out of bed each day and by the end of the working day am flat out exhausted.
I wanted to ask if anyone else has similar issues, what they do about it, is there alternate options?
I stopped going to the doctor 12 months ago, because i was told i needed to speak to one Doctor, but each morning for 3 weeks i tried to phone her but she was never available. Bit frustrating.
So i chose to try and manage myself, food intake, fluids, sleep all key things in relation to managing how i feel.
But it in all honesty (i don't want to come across as a wet flannel) it isn't working, i just feel something is missing..
Any suggestions, comments would be gratefully appreciated.
