I wonder, have you had your thyroid checked? If so, what were your lab numbers (TSH, Ft3, Ft4) and ranges? I've become an expert at testing them.
Also, do you ever get blood sugar rushes, hyperactive at night, or adrenaline surges?
lol, so much for my attempt to help you.
TSH was .77 last time it was checked (2 years ago).
Hyperactive at night, no.
I have in my life experienced blood sugar problems but have controlled that totally in the last 10 years with a better diet. So I remember how they feel and sometimes feel "tricked" into believing my fatigue is like a blood sugar drop (though it doesn't feel the same) but it doesn't respond to eating something (like it did when I actually had blood sugar problems due to a blah diet when I was younger).
Adrenaline surges is something I had a few years ago with stressful situations. I've pretty much eliminated them (stressful situations, that is - and the adrenaline issues seem to subsided). When I had them, a moderate stress (say, a marital argument or MIL confrontation) would knock. me. out. For 24 hours, even if everything was all made better, I'd feel utterly awful and fatigued and unable to cope.
Had generally been feeling better bit by bit over the years, never really well but coming back to normal. But recently something took a nose dive and I've experienced some of the really bad fatigue (like it's hard to just SIT THERE fatigue) again, plus now I have the lovely symptom of pain (seems like connective tissues). It's faded in the last week or so but omg it was bad for a while. And so much for thinking I was on the road to recovery, even if it was slow.
Sorry for the blah blah blah.
