H, guys! This is my first post here.
I'm Stephenie. I'm 21.

I've been having this issue for about 4 years now, since I was 17. I'd eat a
meal, and be extremely tired seconds after I finish. And not like a "i didn't have a good sleep, i need some coffee" kind of tired, I mean TIRED. I feel like I swallowed a bottle of sleeping pills. Once, my dog threw up on my leg and I heard her doing it, but I was so tired I didn't even bother moving. I sleep from 3 hours to 12 hours, it varies. The thing is it happens no matter what. Than I wake up feeling hungover, groggy, still tired and hungry. So I eat and it happens again.

It's going on right now. I slept at 3 AM and woke up at 12 PM, so a nice 9 hours of sleep. 12:30 PM I ate white rice with beans and a mix of fresh vegetables, and ay 12:45 I fell asleep an woke up at 5:30 PM and it's 7 PMnow and I'm stillinbed feeling like I'm going to fall asleep.

My doctors have found nothing wrong with my blood sugar or thyroids and don't take me seriously when I talk to them. they think i'm just a kid withbad sleep patterns. i'vehad4 different doctors.

I just don't know what's wrong with me..
I know exactly how u feel! I suffered for YEARS and this passed August I decided to give up gluten for a few weeks to see what would happen...well, what happened is I started feeling better and now I know I cannot eat gluten! When I eat gluten (accidentally now!) in about an hour it hits me and I'm on the couch like I've taken sleeping pills and I sleep 12 hrs. And then I wake up feeling like hell...it takes several days for me to feel better! I went to doctors and because I'm not a true celiac (I don't have the symptoms that a celiac patient has)...so no doctor or even myself considered it was gluten doing this to me! I figured this out after I realized that eating certain foods put me to sleep! Now that I'm gluten free I have my life back! I'm still not 100% because it takes a long time for your body to heal from poisoning it for so many years....but I'm soooo much better! My kids are happy and my husband is happy...it hasn't been easy learning what to eat but now I have tons of stuff to eat and enjoy eating gluten free because of how great I feel. I know everyone is different but I suspect you will find that cutting gluten from your diet will make you feel better. There's tons of info out there for going gluten free...I hope that u can find what the problem is, I know how life altering it can be...

It sounds like an Autoimmune Disease of some kind. My story might help!! Just to note .. this does not always show in a blood test.


Three years ago I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism after being misdiagnosed for twenty eight years. I cannot express how sick I was. There are no words to describe it. I was actually having near death experiences from a thyroid that was dead or ... as close to dead as a thyroid can possibly get. After twenty five years I became so sick I spent the last three years in bed.

One of my neighbors at the time was an addict. I'm not sure how he knew this but he saved my life. He came to my house and insisted he had a medication that would get me up and to the doctors. I didn't know what to think?? All I knew was I had nothing to lose. I took the medication and within a half hour it worked. Unbelievable!!!! I was able to get up take a shower (which was torture at the time) and walk to the doctors. Luckily there was a clinic across the street so the walk wasn't too long.

Long story short. I was diagnosed. After the blood tests came back the doctors were completely amazed I was standing never mind functioning. I must admit, I was also amazed, not by the diagnosis, but by the medicine I took just hours before. I had no idea what it was. When I got back I asked my neighbor. It turned out to be [B]low dose suboxone[/B]. Two milligrams of [B]suboxone[/B] turned into my permanent medication .. along with thyroid medication. I know I will never completely recover. I suffered permenant damage to all my major organs. The good news is with [B]suboxone[/B] I have a chance of leading a normal life. Physicians won't admit this but [B]suboxone[/B] is the majic drug to living with chronic fatigue and numerous other disorders. [B]Suboxone[/B] was the miracle I've waited twenty eight years for. The thyriod medication does little to nothing by itself. All it does is regulate the thyroid. The symtoms will remain forever. With [B]Low dose suboxone[/B] there are [B]NO symptoms[/B]. They are a thing of the past. Low dose suboxone is the best hypothyroid medication on the market. I cannot express this enough. Any MD can prescribe off label suboxone. It will kill the chronic fatigue. Stop suffering .. find a Physician who will treat you with something that actually works. Hope this helps!!
Its probably a cortisol deficiency.

Cortisol regulates immune function, blood glucose and blood pressure. When you eat, insulin is released that drops blood sugar. Cortisol should also be released, increasing blood sugar. If this doesn't happen efficiently, your blood sugar will drop making you feel tired.

Secondly, cortisol effects thyroid metabolism. When cortisol drops, there is an increase in conversion of combined thyroid (t4) to free thyroid (t3). If your thyroid cant keep up with the additional conversion to t3, you will also experience hypothyroidism.

8 am cortisol should be 20.
