(I am a 22YO male)
Back in January, I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety. While I think the diagnoses were correct, I can't help but feel there's something physical going on as well. My depression and anxiety were largely brought about by my inability to get much done, which came from being tired all the time. I know fatigue is a symptom of depression, but I've been feeling better recently and still, no matter how much sleep I get, I'm tired. I've always gotten tired easier than others, but I feel like that's been exacerbated the last couple of years.
My other main symptom is thirst. I can drink bottle after bottle of water and still feel thirsty, and if I go even a short time without hydrating I get exhausted even quicker.
I've gotten a couple of tests (folate, Vitmains B12 and D levels, and tissue transglutaminase) and all have come back normal.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Could this just be my depression/general make up? I've heard thyroid problems as a possibility, does anyone know if my tests covered that? I've also seen some of my symptoms correspond with Diabetes. Is that something my doctor would have checked as with a simple blood test and ruled out, or would I need a special appointment/test? Does Chronic Fatigue Syndrome make sense given my symptoms? Thanks in advance!
