Question: I am a 49 yeR old , female. I have chronic fItge! I can sleep anywhere at any time. 12-19 hours a day. 3-5 hour naps. I am very active in my job. 10-12 hour days in the sun. I have migraines that last for months at a time, up to 9 months, minus 8-10 days. It is swimmy, and I get waves of dizziness. But have not passed out.I had low Vit. D. Last year. I am gaining weight like crazy. I seem to be getting infections. As of yesterday, my 25 year old C-section has started ozzing fluid and smells really bad. I got put on antibiotics for that. I have a lot of numbness, and muscle spazams. I did have a spinal block about 2 months ago. My Cimbalta was used to 60 mg. I did stop taking thT last week. Still very tired! Any suggestions or test that should be preformed? Thank you in Advance. XXXX
