So here’s a few things I need to mention about my history. I am a 28 year old female.
1. To start my mother did cocaine while I was in the womb, don’t know more details than that or if it was more than once.
2. Since I was young I have been sensitive to any stimulant, ie, caffeine/nasal decongestants
3. When I was young I never could keep up with the other kids. I would get winded much more easily than anyone else during recess.
4. Getting older I notice my heart reacts very quickly to anything stimulating including exercise.
5. I have undiagnosed dizzy/vertigo spells.
6. I’ve had headaches and sleeping issues since I was little.
7. I had mono when I was 16 and another similar episode around 6 months later. The fatigue was constant and slowly faded over a 18 months. Has been episodic every since.
8. Since mono, my tonsils (which are already huge) swell whenever I am ill or fighting something off. Lots of tonsil stones.
9. I’ve been slowly putting on weight and it won’t come off. I have tried every diet in the book and exercise as much as I can which has been slowly becoming less and less.
10. For the passed almost 2 years I’ve been experiencing everything in different episodes that can’t be attributed specifically to something. Fatigue, dizziness, headaches, mild to severe brain fog, lethargy. Sometimes all, sometimes only 1 or 2 things at once. The fatigue is not relieved by sleep and no rest feels good enough. Medicine only mildly relieves the headaches. The dizziness comes and goes as it please some times a few seconds, sometimes days.
11. I can’t exercise now with any kind of exertion because I will feel anywhere from slightly fatigue to fully ill for the next 3-4 days after exercise depending on the how hard I exercised.
I have been checked for thyroid issues, diabetes, liver function, lyme disease, MS, and anything else that would cause fatigue. I’ve had an EKG and had my O2 sats checked for heart defects. My vitamin b12, D and Iron were low but not alarmingly and to me not enough to cause the symptoms. Plus I’ve been taking them consistently and still having episodes.
I’m sure there is something I’m forgetting. All I know is that the last 2 years have had the stressors that could trigger episodes and I definitely notice that during emotional stress (specifically something that induces a lot of crying) or whenever I try to pick up exercising, I have an episode.
Here’s the question, does any of this make sense to anyone?!
Could any or all of this be related to adrenal fatigue issues?
