I'm soooooooo tired! Tired of being tired! I don't know what

Customer Question

I'm soooooooo tired! Tired of being tired! I don't know what to do anymore. I've been diagnosed with anxiety and depression. I've been dealing with this for over 18 years now and about every 6-9 months I switch medications or change my dosage because it just isn't working. I think my dr. has put me on everthing there is, I can't remember all of them. My symptoms are chronically: extreme fatigue, confusion, lack of concentration, general malaise, irratibility, moodiness, frequent headaches, poor memory and recall, stomach irratibility, lack of interest in "fun" activities, social anxiety, no (I mean NO) sex-drive. These are the big ones. More importantly, I can barely make it through a whole day of work and when I get home I am exhausted. On my days off all I do is sleep...all day. My house is a mess, my kids are a mess, I'm a mess and I can't get out of it. My current meds are Oxcarbazepine 300mg and citalopram 40mg, which we just changed this week.

Have you ever been evaluated for Chronic Fatigue syndrome? Sounds like some of your symptoms overlap with a CFS diagnosis.
