... No, I understand. Thanks for your advice though! :) Nope, I didn't see the results. I'm having them sent to my new PCP, so I'll ask for them when I get to that appt in 2 weeks. The only symptoms I have besides fatigue is a stiff/sore neck (in the back). This started the same time the fatigue did. I also crave sugar/salt (8 replies)
