For months now and actually more like years, I've felt just disabling fatigue in my day to day life. I have been doing a lot of good things to help like exercise, dietary things like avoiding caffeine, alcohol, simple sugars, etc. I have went to my doctor for over 4 years telling him how incredibly tired I feel. I have had low Testosterone for a very long time and even with androgel therapy, it seems like there is virtually no change at all in my fatigue levels. I tried Vitamin D3 and didn't notice anything at all, and possibly even worse fatigue with the androgel and D3. I am not diagnosed with narcolepsy, but I feel so tired mentally some days I don't even know if I can handle it anymore. I got checked for sleep apnea a couple years ago, that was confirmed as obstructive sleep apnea (I guess) that I have. I don't know what to do anymore as I feel completely puzzled because the sleep doctor didn't even say I had apnea, just said it looked like I had some, maybe. Am clueless now

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Answer A62307
Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Sleep apnea and narcolepsy are the causes fo your fatigue. You need to correct these two underlying causes and every thing will be back to normal.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
