Your story reads SOOO much like mine! I have chronic fatigue, am on my 6th doctor. Nobody has been able to help. All my blood tests (for everything under the sun) are totally normal. Except I'm not. I'm not depressed, bi-polar,etc. I have always been happy, healthy, a go-getter type A personality. I own my own business and do well at it. Except about 6 years ago my symptoms started showing up. Over that time, they have gotten worse and more symptoms appear. They have become debilitating. I am SOOO tired all the time. I had gained wieght and a couple years ago got a Dr. to prescribe Phentermine for weight loss. IT IS AWESOME!!! It is my magic mood lifter energy pill. I was so desperate that I flew down to Dallas, TX from Oregon to see a Dr. there ( Dr. Branch) that will prescribe phentermine on a monthly basis. None of the Dr's here will because they will all tell you it is addicting. This is a LIE! I know 5 people that have been on and off, including myself. I can take it for two months and stop cold turkey. Not so much as an eye twitch. No craving for it, no 'withdrawl' symptoms whatsoever... except ALL my horrible "normal" symtoms come back. I haven been diagnosed with PMDD ( severe PMS~but I think I have adrenal fatigue and hypothyroidism caused by the adrenal fatigue... all related to my hormone symtoms). I'm 37 and all these symptoms started at 31. I can set a clock by my period. I know on day 23 for example that I am going to be totally incapacitated. on day 30, I always start my period. I have never had a miscarriage and have 3 healthy kids. So it's not a problem with my reproductive parts, but something has gone haywire. Anyway, the only thing that works to give me energy and a some hope that I will be able to accomplish anything during the day is phentermine. No Dr. will ever prescribe it for Chronic Fatigue, so you will probably have to go to Dr. Branch in Texas, but it is SOOO worth it! It is so amazing to me that Dr's will prescribe all sorts of addicting pills with horrible side effects without a thought, but the one that I know from experience ( as does everyone I know that takes it!) they say is 'addicting'. During the week before my period I have nightmares, night sweats and panic attacks. When I take the phentermine THEY STOP! Literally, if I take a phentermine one morning, I will not have any symptoms that night. Skip the next day, and that night, they are back, like clockwork. I could write on the calendar on days 23-30 of my period for the next 50 years " Will have a night sweat and panic attack". Phentermine takes those away. It's one of those things where a pill that is prescribed for one thing works amazing for something else ( PMDD / chronic fatigue symptoms) and no Doctor will listen.
