Thank you for the information.

Sense of loss of energy is not a characteristic of Von Willibrand's disease.

It can occur if there is repeated bleeding leading to low hemoglobin level & anemia.

If your hemoglobin level is normal then you can take tests for other common causes like thyroid hormone levels or glucose tests or blood electrolyte levels etc.

Sometimes anxiety & depression may cause a sense of loss of energy.

Cymbalta & clonazepam have not been reported to have effect on VWD, but analgesics like aspirin , motrin etc can precipitate bleeding.

I hope this information will be helpful.

Please ask if you need any clarification.

Best wishes.
