Hi, I am hoping to get some advice as I am really frustrated and I don't know what else to do.
More than a year ago I went through some heavy stress and at that time I got sick with a nasty cold flu bug that lasted about 10 weeks. Since then and until this day, I have been battling fatigue. I am no longer stressed. I have had numerous blood tests and all come back normal. I stopped the birth control pill because I thought it was that. This year I started to become allergic to dairy, wheat etc. and was battling constipation and stomach pains and gas. I went to a naturopath and he said that I have candida. I have been treating the candida in hopes that my fatigue would go away but it hasn't but all other candida symptoms I had have disappeared. The fatigue has been so bad that it has ruined my marathon running performance and all the races I have done since last year are about 5-9 minutes slower than I used to be. Not only do I battle fatigue but I am always cold and I get irritable and moody. I have to drag my butt to workout or do anything around the house. I did a half marathon 2 weeks ago and the entire time I felt horrible and I felt as though I couldn't get air into my lungs and my legs felt like lead.
In the last few weeks I was certain I am anemic based on the symptoms and went back to the doctors and had blood work done again. I just called my doctor's office and was told that my serum ferritin is normal but my B12 is high. Is the fact that my B12 is high alarming? Should I be worried? I couldn't ask many questions because the receptionist was busy and I could tell she didn't want to answer me. I am slowly transitioning to raw and I know this will be healthier but I need help determining what is causing the fatigue first. I am falling asleep at work and I find it worse after I eat. My doctor is convinced that I have a sleeping disorder but I get atleast 6-7 hours sleep and I am a sound sleeper with very little interruptions Does anyone have any advice? I am so frustrated that it makes me cry because I just want to find the answer to this. I don't want to feel this way anymore. My hubby and I are planning to have kids next year but I can't even think about having them if I feel this way. HELP!
