Hi all. I'm new here, as you may have guessed.
I have been suffering greatly for about a year now, with constant, crippling muscle pain and ache, and major blinding headaches with photophobia. But thats not all. I have some bowel issues as well which the Dr thinks is related. (sorry, TMI I know!)
I sleep ALL the time, because it seems no matter how much sleep I get, its not enough. The first Dr thought I was depressed, so started me on Anti Depressants, which didn't help at all. I also suffer from SAD - Seasonal Affective Disorder, but don't know if these are related?
When going to bed at night, I toss and turn for goodness knows how long, and then when I finally fall asleep, I wake up not long after and the cycle repeats itself.
I have found myself not wanting to go anywhere, because all I want to do is sit down or curl up in a corner and sleep.
During these school holidays my 10yr old son has fended for himself because I am always lying down, or sleeping or feeling so lethargic.
The Dr suggested I might have Chronic Fatigue, so I did some 'googling' but every site I go to has such varied ideas/thoughts on the matter, so I thought I would go to some ppl who actually knew what it was all about. Ppl that actually have been through this.
So, what do you think? Am I just stressed, exhausted and depressed? Or do I really have a problem here?
I don't care if I do, I just want to know so I can start to rectify the situation. It's getting ridiculous.
