Chronic Fatigue Message Board


Chronic Fatigue Board Index


Over two years ago I began experiencing some dizziness and increasing fatigue. I went through a bunch of tests looking for possible physical causes, MRIs, scans, and various blood tests. The result was that all they found was my thyroid was twice the size it should be so I had it removed. Nothing changed as far as how I felt but was told things would get better once the right level of synthroid was found. That level has now been found and all my tests, thyroid and others such as adrenal levels and others are now all well within normal ranges. So why has there been no change in how I feel.

I feel as though I'd be perfectly happy to spend the rest of my days just sleeping. I have no energy nor desire to do anything. Also, I have brain fog much of the time. Looking for possible answers I just completed a series of cardiac tests and all showed no problems. Strangely, by accident I found one thing that makes me feel almost normal, but it is not something I would want to do on a regular basis. I went to a hamburger joint that provides 20 ounce cups for sodas and I drank two of these of Pepsi. Twenty minutes later, I felt almost normal. The brain fog was gone and energy levels up. I know one can say it was just a sugar high, but looking at it differently, it might suggest a shortage of whatever sugar reacts with. Also there was no drop in feeling when the sugar wore off. It made me feel good for hours. I'm convinced there must be some sort of message here but I have no idea what it might be. I am not diabetic so that cannot be involved here.

Let me know if you have any thoughts as to what my body is missing that causes such fatigue and brain fog.
