I'm a newbie, trying to figure out what's going on with me. I've been fatigued for as long as I can remember, and my mom confirms that I've always been like this. I always thought it was because I was depressed, not eating right, or out of shape, but now I have none of those properties, and I'm still like this. I've slowly got myself up to running for 30 mins. at a time (thanks, coolrunning.com) from being unable to run for three minutes. But even though I'm really proud of and happy with that, a flight of stairs still makes me woozy.
I found this forum, and although I don't seem to have had a rapid onset of symptoms (at least, none that I can remember), I wonder if any of my symptoms might ring a bell, or if you might let me know what other tests I should have done. There seem to be a bunch but honestly I'm too foggy right now (I'm home with a cold) to sort through them, so I'm hoping you guys can help!
I went and got some bloodwork done, and got a whole lot of normal results: iron, hemoglobin, thyroid, blood sugar. I do have low blood pressure, but friends with lower blood pressure than me don't seem to have my symptoms.
My symptoms (everything I can think of, since I don't know what's relevant and what might be something else):
general wooziness coming over me in waves, especially climbing stairs, standing on the subway, shopping, cleaning
yawning uncontrollably, especially during yoga and after a certain point at night
can exercise, but long days wear me out
exercise and cold-weather asthma
low blood pressure
not always thirsty, but seems like I can drink a lot of it without feeling hydrated
mere colds seem to really knock me out for no particular reason
intolerance of heat
Any thoughts for my next move?
Thanks in advance! I appreciate it.
