Hello all, this is my first post. My name is Samantha, I am 29 years old. Every time I go to the doctors I always feel disappointed at the lack of help, they always blame everything on stress and send me on my way. So I have decided to turn to the Internet in the hopes of some decent advice!
I am suffering with constant fatigue lately. It's been going on for several months and it's interfering with my life now. I work a fairly active job in landscaping, so I don't live a sedentary lifestyle. I don't find it to be too active that I can't cope, however. Even after a good night's rest and on days off I find myself so tired I can barely function. Doing basic housework, walking up the stairs, cooking dinner - it all feels like extremely hard work. I have absolutely no motivation or interest in doing anything I used to like. All I seem to want to do is lay down and shut my eyes. I have tried altering my diet, I have cut out all energy drinks as I thought maybe that was contributing to it. I've tried sleeping longer and sleeping for less. I still feel the same.
I have alopecia universalis, I also suffer with terrible hayfever (a landscaper with hayfever, imagine that!). My eyes are constantly streaming tears, my skin is dreadful (eczema, dry, red etc) and I feel like I've piled on some weight! I feel so incredibly gross lately. I can't wear makeup due to the teary eyes, and I find wearing my wigs unbearable with how itchy my skin is. I feel sorry for my boyfriend haha!
Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thank you so much in advance.
