I am constantly in a state of chronic/unending fatigue. I am 21 years old and am on 4 different psychiatric meds. I'm taking androgel for testosterone. I am working hard to make dietary changes for the better and also trying to eat better. I am extremely tired every day of my life. I feel like I am a walking zombie in all seriousness. I do not know what exactly is causing this but I have sleep apnea as well and I am having trouble getting depressed because I can't get that to work out/improve. I'm also supposed to be getting better sleep from a cpap machine but I"m not and my depression is going higher and higher. I am becoming incredibly lonely and haven't actually talked to a friend in person since last January. I am really sad and I don't enjoy much in life because of how fatigued I feel 24/7. I had hormones, electrolytes, Testosterone and thyroid levels all examined and all were fine except a high hematocrit level. I am considerably tired right now and surprised I can even type without making grammatical errors. I want to sleep all day and all night despite hardly ever being able to sleep well. I want to sleep almost all the time but rarely can more than 6 to 7 hours a night. I am doing everything I can to help my daily energy but it seems very little is effective. Could this be the onset of future narcolepsy? I am taking vyvanse and zoloft with vistaril at bedtime. I am not sleeping well lately and have taken melatonin supplements for probably 6 years straight. I still do not have energy and every morning I wake up feeling like it's 10 PM when I just get out of bed in the morning when most people are just waking up feeling refreshed. Do I have narcolepsy coming on or chronic fatigue?
