HelloI Am a new MemberI was hoping for some help,i am 20 years old and i have been to conventional doctors,neuopaths,herbalists,i have had accupuncture,tried 50 dirfrent diests and tried so many things i feel like this is ruining my life and i still have no clear diagnoses.
I was hoping that someone could help me?
it all started when i was 13 years old i was constantly tired and always sick as if i had a cold,the doctors said i had a sleep disorder and i had treatment which included long stays a the sleep disorder clinic and what felt like a hundred diffrent drugs which would make me more drowsy but i still could not get a refreshing sleep,after three years of this i was told it was a mental illness and all in my head, i became depresed as all my friends could play soprts and i could hardly pull my self out of bed my mother was desperate to to help me and spent her days talking to doctors neuropaths,herbalists,and child physcoligists,they put me on diets ,vitamins,and accupuncture once a month but nothing helped.
I had to be home schooled as my grades were suffering as i would have "micro sleeps" when it was so bad that i was hardly sleeping at all and if i did get a "good"sleep which could last 30-40 hours i would still wake up as if i had done a ten km run, I am now 20 and my loving fiance is so supportive but i am so sick of this and as i now live in a tiny country town with one doctor that says it is just stress i dont know what to do,a family friend suggested that i could have chronic fatigue syndrom i was hoping that someone could suggest a solution.
Thankyou for taking the time to read this and i really hope you can help me return to a normal life.
PS sorry about the bad spelling.
