For several months I've had severe fatigue, or rather complete deletion of energy and motivation, I don't feel tired but feel generally unwell. Doing just a few essential household jobs leaves me feeling weak and shaky and causes me to sweat excessively and overheat. Anything more energetic like hoovering or ironing and the sweat pours off me, dripping off my face and down my body.
Shortly after these symptoms started a blood test showed my liver was inflamed and my GP said this was the cause. I changed my diet, eating lots of foods I read are good for liver inflammation and although a scan showed the inflammation had gone a few weeks later my symptoms are no better. Another blood test revealed vitamin D deficiency and my GP then said this is the cause and prescribed vitamin D3 tablets. I've also been spending at least half an hour outside every time it's sunny.
I can understand my lack of energy being down to vitamin D deficiency but the only reference I can find to sweating is head sweating where mine is the whole body. I also don't have any bone pain although I find walking up the stairs much more difficult as my legs feel very heavy and causes breathlessness.
Also a couple of weeks ago I had 2 days when I felt much better, more energy, more motivation and no heavy legs when I climbed the stairs although the excessive sweating was the same.
I had another blood test last week to check my vitamin D levels and have an appointment to see my GP on Friday to get the results. But I have a feeling I will just be fobbed off again and need answers to the questions going round in my head such as what is causing me to sweat and overheat so excessively? And how come I had 2 good days only for the lack of energy to come back? I'm also often very clumsy, dropping things all the time, is this connected?
Having no energy is horrible, I have to push myself to do everything and knowing how it's going to make me feel makes finding motivation even more difficult. And being inactive is causing weight gain which I definitely don't need as I'm already overweight.
Please can anyone give me any advice that may help?
