It is very possible that this is stress. Stress did this to me (Fatigue, neck pain). Granted, I don't have sore throats or headaches, however stress could effect people, in different ways. Not to mention, stress can have effects on various different pituitary glands that can cause immune problems, hence getting more colds (sore throats). Your headaches behind the eyes, I sometimes get too.... however I believe they're sinus issues.
Have you gone through a long period of stress? (Car accident, change in jobs, moving, death, financial burden)
Have you felt better at all when this started happening, by taking a vacation, relaxing a bit more?
Since you only have one doctor, who sounds like he's not willing to help any more, you need to take this into your own hands. I would like for you to have a saliva test done. It's $150 out of your pocket. It would be a 24 hour test, so you would have to be somewhere comfortable to spit in a tube 4 times a day. Just the standard test will show Cortisol and DHEA-S. Cortisol is the essential hormone for daily life. Cortisol is the hormone that reacts when your body is under stress, working out, and even waking up.
Ever hear of Adrenaline rush, or fight or flight mode? This is a cortisol raise in the body to give you a boost when needed. Too much of this, like in stress, will cause the adrenal glands to become exhausted.
Here is a little more info on it
Here is the link to ZRT labs website for the saliva test. They have nothing to gain from your results (pushing supplements, remedies) All they do is testing. I've recommened this test to Two other users on this forum, and it's made a world of difference. I've also finally started getting help, and within another week of being on my meds, should feel better.
You want to purchase the "Adrenal Function test"
Here is another link to Dr. Wilsons site. This will give you some more info on Adrenal Fatigue.
Come back and post your results when you have them. In the mean time, request copies of all your lab work that you've had done in the past 3 years. By HIPPA law, they're required to give them to you.
Once you have your results, post them on here. If they show low levels throughout the day, I can recommend a doctor to you that can help. She does phone consultations and is wonderful. She is a board certified MD and PhD from Stanford University. She isn't expensive and is the most caring doctor I've meet. She listens to you and wants your ideas as well.
Good luck, and keep me informed on how things go!
