Fatigue, sleepiness, heaviness in extremities and chest, constipation, sore throat. Any ideas ?

Hi I am a 33 year old female I have been having the same specific symtoms for the past year which are getting worse everyday that has been controling my life. The symptoms are as follows, fatigue: sleeping for 14-24 hrs at a time and never feeling rested. Aches and heaviness in extremities and chest, constipation, chills, sore throat, always feeling run down and as if I am fighting a cold or flu , and severe acne. I have no cough, no fever. I have been trialed on different antidepressents without any difference, my body is becoming weaker and weaker everyday. The only health condition I currently have is celiac disease I was diagnosed with celiac disease about 4 yrs ago by bloodwork and scope, since going gluten free all my gastro intestinal symptoms have been relieved, migraines disappeared, and I felt really good for the first 2 yrs on the diet. I follow the diet 100%. My Dr has ordered cbc bloodwork, thyroid, and -b12 bloodwork which has all been normal. She is talking about referring me to a specialist. Wondering if my symptoms are related to something neurological or immune. Any ideas what could be causing this? What kind of tests do I need to have done to find out what is going on with my body. ? Multiple sclorosis, CFS , or Fibromyalgia. I am currently taking effexor which I have only been on for 1 mth, which the Dr switched me to from citalopram which I had been on for years, zanax Prn, and zopiclone prn.

I have studied your case with diligence.

All these symptoms indicate immune disorder,you may need to check your serology profile like HbsAg and HIV elisa.
Celiac disease will cause weakness and weight loss which you need to handle with extra neutritional supplements.
You need to add some holistic approach to your life like music,creativity ,yoga spa,meditation ect.

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries.
