The past few weeks have been real hard for me. I think you all know I have had some health problems the past year. The main issue being that some days, I have extreme daytime sleepiness and cannot stay awake. I have had days recently when I slept 20 out of 24 hours in a day! Now, I also have a bad cold.
I have seen so many types of doctors (had sleep study, thyroid checked, heart checked, and more) and found all to be fine, except a slight thyroid problem, but doctor said it was not enough to make me as sleepy as I am. Tried to call several of the doctors again last weeks, beggining them to tell me what to look at next because I cannot live my life sleeping all the time. I have a family. I have iVillage. I have a part time job. Also, it is not any of my medications, checked that first last year.
Hubby and I are considering trying to get me into the Mayo Clinic to be checked, since all the doctors cannot find anything to explain the tiredness. When I called this past week, two doctors flat out said, "I don't know what to tell you......all your tests were normal...."
There is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, but I thought many doctors don't recognise that as a diagnoses?
My apology for being MIA, I do care about the board and will try to stay awake and be involved like I want to be!!!!!
