Hmmm: You may be pregnant and or fibromyalgia.
I'm getting too tired too fast. I work every day and I use bus instead of cars. What's is the cause of this extreme fatigue that im feeling?
Maybe: The peri-menopausal period can cause a lot of changes. Notably, the introduction of hot flashes. Hot flashes that occur at night often disrupt sleep. It is this disruption in sleep that contributes to fatigue in the day, as well as mood swings. However, other conditions, like thyroid problems, or diabetes can also cause fatigue. I recommend you see your doctor for evaluation.

Fibromyalgia?: ? why fatigue, unrefreshing sleep, generalized aching & several serial stools. This symptom constellation can be found in people w. fibromyalgia, who often have associated irritable bowel symptoms.

Hi my dose of escitalopram was changed from 10 to 20 mg. 2 days ago. Can it cause extreme fatigue once upping the dose and side effects? Wanna give up
Side effects: Lexapro (escitalopram) and similar med side effects can range from mild to severe. If by "extreme fatigue" you mean falling asleep or not fully alert, you should discuss dose increase with prescribing doctor. Increases can be smaller, eg, even by 2.5 mg increments (break a 5 mg tab in half). This is just general info since I don't know details of your situation. Do talk to doctor. I hope this is helpful.
Klonopin (clonazepam): If symptom started after starting the medication or after increasing the dose.
Thirty-four yr old female. Always tired/extreme fatigue. Labs are good. Help!!! What can be the cause?
Medications: I see that you take oral antihistamines such as Benadryl. This can have the side effect of drowsiness. If you are still experiencing fatigue after discontinuing the med, then I would think about your lifestyle and optimize it. Things like stress, lack of exercise, poor diet, and poor relationships can cause you to feel fatigued. I see you have pain, this can also cause fatigue.
How can I drain my lymph nodes naturally? This is just to treat a cold that is already one week old and causes extreme fatigue.
Maybe Unnecessary: While it would be okay to use warm moist heat and short-duration gentle massage on enlarged lymph nodes, I do not feel that will "treat" your cold or speed recovery. Lymph nodes are basically reservoirs for debris from a virus/bacterial infection. I would encourage conservative measures for a cold such as rest and otc medications. If symptoms persist, see a medical provider.
