Hi, I wondered if you could see if any of you recognise my symptoms?
I've suddenly started feeling very tired all the time - too tired to do anything, even if I really want to, and definitely so tired that I have to lie down, usually in the afternoon, but it can come on as early as straight after my shower in the morning. People also comment on how tired I look.
I also have achy joints and get very dizzy (my head spins) every time I stand up. I feel sick a lot as well.
I've not been to the doctors because I can't decide whether this is just a random collection of symptoms. I'm 23 and otherwise fairly healthy. I don't have a great diet, but it isn't unhealthy, just I don't eat a lot.
Definitely get checked out. Probably worth taking a pregnancy test first so the Dr doesn't waste time on that (Ime any symptoms which include dizziness and sickness between 16 and 35 are assumed to be pregnancy first). good luck :-)
Just to add to the list of maybes, it could be vit D deficiency. In the long term it ca ncause muscle weakness and bone pain and extreme tiredness. Do you find that you struggle to get up from sitting or to climb the stairs?
It does sound like you could do with going for a check over though, and some blood tests doing
