Topic: I got a sickness, do you know what it is?
September 20, 2019 / By Abagail Question:
I am, once again, detailing some symptoms.
About 1 month & 1/2 ago, I got a stomach virus which lasted quite a while. It caused a lot of pain and symptoms, and a short fast killed it off. Since then, I have had excessive tiredness and fatigue. I used to be a high school athlete and had a lot of energy before the stomach virus, and since then I have been really tired. Also, about 2 weeks ago I got a cold from a friend and it seems to have made the symptoms worse. I have allergies, pretty bad ones since recently, and the "cold" hasn’t gone away with many days of school missed. I have always knocked out my colds in a week or less, but this one is sticking, leading me to theorize it as just a “Cold-like" symptom. I can't concentrate, leading to pain in school and outside of it. I got a blood test at the time of the stomach virus, but that checked out pretty well. I am pretty thirty a lot too.
The theory I have is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, but that is not widely accepted as an actually illness in the overall medical community. I just know that I feel sinus pain and tiredness no matter how much I sleep. 5 hours or 15, its all the same to my body, and I cannot concentrate, and the missed school is quite annoying. I eat well. Please help me.

Could be a few things, but first I need some more info. Did you get a urine test? If so how was your protein levels in your urine, if any? While Chronic Fatigue Syndrome does fit some of the symptoms, its not likely in your case.
It could be the following in my opinion.
A. Multiple Sclerosis
C.A low thyroid level (hypothyroidism) can cause fatigue, weakness, lethargy, weight gain, depression, memory problems, constipation, dry skin, intolerance to cold, coarse and thinning hair, brittle nails, or a yellowish tint to the skin.
D.A high thyroid level (hyperthyroidism) can cause fatigue, weight loss, increased heart rate, intolerance to heat, sweating, irritability, anxiety, muscle weakness, and thyroid enlargement.
E.Myasthenia gravis, a rare, chronic disorder that causes weakness and rapid muscle fatigue.
F.A problem with the minerals (electrolytes) found naturally in the body, such as low levels of potassium or sodium.
G.A decrease in the amount of oxygen-carrying substance (hemoglobin) found in red blood cells (anemia).
H.Metabolic disorders, such as diabetes, in which sugar (glucose) remains in the blood rather than entering the body’s cells to be used for energy.
I.Kidney disease and liver disease, which cause fatigue when the concentration of certain chemicals in the blood builds up to toxic levels.
Or, If you did have just a bad case of the cold, and its still in your system it would weaken your immune system and cause stuff like allergies to act up
Have your doctor test your blood counts. Your immune system probably has not recovered from the virus, which is why you're fatigued all the time and keep catching colds. It also explains the increase in allergies, due to your body's impaired ability to defend itself.
Go back to your doctor and tell him/her the symptoms you are having. Blood tests can change from week to week. You may have the good old flu bug, but you may be anemic or have something else going on. Best to check with the MD. Good Luck!
Tell a doctor all of your symptoms. It's foolish to try to diagnose yourself. I do it too and I'm always wrong.

I'm 11 weeks and feel the exact same way. I'm not so nauseaus anymore, just NOTHING sounds good. Usually I eat pretty healthy, but the only thing that sounds good is junk. I don't want to eat junk (I'm on my 4th baby, with my third the only thing that sounded good was reese's buttercups! I ate 8 buttercups a day! and gained 60 lbs! lol) so... I am trying hard to not do that again, although I took all the weight off, no need to tempt fate again, y'know? I do feel sorry for my hubby, who never knows what to bring me, every day it's something new, or he'll say "look honey I brought the granola bars you asked for yesterday!" and I have to tell him I'm very sorry, but those dont' sound good anymore! Poor, sweet man. And so much wasted food. I wish I knew why the junk is what sounds good, because sounds like you're having the same problem.
I have figured out for me, part of it is in the preparation. I don't want to handle/prepare food. If we go out, I have no problem eating healthy, etc. but at home in my own kitchen I don't even want to think about preparing, especially meats, etc. funny how that works.
let me know how it works out for you, and if you have any tips! when is your baby due?
