Hi

I'm having a rough time figuring out why I'm so tired, given that I have 'nothing wrong' with me... But I've had a dx of beta thallasemia minor also known as beta thallasaemia trait. And I am EXHAUSTED all the time. I don't have sleep apnea, been tested, my thyroid is normal (as far as the tests tell). No chronic fatigue, though I'm always tired, because a lot of those symptoms just don't apply. But it's been about 5 years and I've had more tests than I can remember... I'm 55+lbs heavier, have no energy, and I'm really fed up being tired!

I am tired being told that I can't be so tired -- and thinking I must be lazy... I'm *really* tired being told I must be depressed... I'm only depressed about being tired... And I used to be a big exerciser, but now I'm too tired to do it, and when I do, I am so tired for days that I don't do it again for a while.

In addition to being tired, I have all the symptoms listed for B12 deficiency, but no reason to believe that I'm deficient in that.

I have all of these symptoms:

•loss of appetite
•diarrhea
•numbness and tingling of hands and feet
(numb feet make exercise miserable)
•paleness
•shortness of breath
•fatigue
•weakness
•sore mouth and tongue
and last...
(just fuzzy head) NOT>>
•confusion or change in mental status <in severe or advanced cases>

In addition, I have intermittent *severe* flatulence, poor concentration, asthma that is suddenly severe after not being a problem before 4/5 years ago... and a whole host of other little irritating health troubles, none serious in themselves...

If you've got any of the symptoms I have, or know anything about b-thallasemia, and/or B12 deficiency, or have any ideas, I'd like to hear from you!

you can reach me at my email WRITTEN OUT below >>
