hello I'm experiencing extreme fatigue muscle aches and pains and major joint pain. If I've been sitting to long my legs knees and feet hurt bad. It's hard to move when I first stand up. The pain in body is all over shoulders to feet. When I wake the fatigue isn't to bad but by 2:30/3pm I can barely keep my eyes open. Often I have to nap for a couple of hours and I'm back to sleep by 10 or 11 pm. I do have a hard time waking in the morning. Getting out of bed is a chore and half. Some of the pain is gone when I regularly take a potassium supplement every day. I have had that checked and it's in normal range. But I still have to take a small amount every day to keep most of the symptoms low. I have also cut out about 90% of refined sugar from my diet. I'm still having symptoms and would like to know where to look next. Thank you

Extreme fatigue. Sleep 12 to 16 hours and am so tired when I wake up I fall back asleep again. When I manage to stay awake I have no energy at all. I can actually fall asleep standing up if I don t lay down. Dizzy spells - don t have anything to do with any medications. I have a weird kind of little rash on the back of my neck. Medication has reduced it but it won t go away. All my muscles ache all the time and some muscle areas get sharp pains and I am losing tone and strength.

Hello, I have been experiencing a few symptoms for a while and wonder what might be happening. First, I am getting my third cold since Dec. 12. I was on antibiotics for a sinus infection and they ended about 8 days ago. I have been exhausted for weeks. Simply, I can take a 2-3 hour nap twice a day. I just think it is odd to have so many colds and sinus infections in one year. I chalked it up to travel, but I have only flown one time since Dec. 19th (this past weekend). I ve been thinking that my body aches were just age; knee pain, hip pain. But for years I ve suffered significant neck and shoulder pain. Turning over at night wakes me up due to the pain. So, I have always thought that my exhaustion was because I don t sleep well at night but I think that might not be the case. I m wondering if I have an allergy (food?) or a sinus issue. Thoughts?
