I'm posting here after 5 months of confusion and struggle. I haven't felt normal since Novermber, and it is now April.
My main symptom is fatigue I suppose, just a general lack of energy. This doesn't seem to be made too much worse with exercise. I have been to the doctor and blood tests etc found nothing wrong with me physically. Apart from fatigue I have had bouts of neck pain, and the occasional headache etc..
I can't really tell if I am depressed. I definitly am not as social as I was a few months ago, and everything certainly feels a lot more BORING and uneccessary. I am finding it really hard to concentrate at university as well.
One weird thing that is happening is that I seem to start to feel better for a few days, but then I will invitably relapse into being tired (I guess) which I suppose will make me feel flat. This seems to go in 2 week cycles; start to feel better for a bit then back to 'normal', start to feel better after that... then so on.
I don't think its Chronic Fatigue Sydrome because I am still functional, and I have no muscle aches or anything.
So my question to you lovely people is, does this sound like it could be depression? Bascially everyday I worry about how I feel/my condittion and it certainly has stopped me doing things I used to enjoy - but I can't tell if I explicitly feel sad. It seems more like if I wasn't so damn tired all the time I could be happy and enjoy all the things I used to.
Thanks heaps for any help
PS I am a (previously) healthy 19 year old male
