How are you? Care to share the test results?
I was anemic, way back when, but, got it fixed.
It was due to a "woman problem"
I hope you have regained your energy, and are doing well.

Hope you feel better soon. I just had a bout 4 months ago. When I get stressed, I don't eat well. You'd never know it by my thighs.
It's no fun to be tired, that's for sure.

Thanks, everyone. Well, I got the test results back a few days ago, and everything came out pretty normal. So, I went to my doctor at home (it's spring break), and he thinks that it's just normal second semeseter, end of winter tiredness. He thinks once it gets warmer, and sunnier, out, I should feel better. Which, I guess is good to know, but it'd be nice to be something more easily fixable. I'm thinking it might be partly eyestrain, too.

I know the feeling, the end of Winter is always awful for me too. I feel exhausted all the time! The only thing I found is to eat better, sleep well, exercise, and relax. The routine helps me to get through it, and when the Spring comes, I do feel much better.

Well, I think I might have an answer, actually.

My home doctor took blood for a mono test, and we got the results today. Apparently, sometime between five years ago and yesterday, I have had mono. I don't have it anymore, but it's really possible that I had a weak strain of it maybe a month ago and I'm still on the recovery path.

So, way to go school health center. Like my dad said, you would think if a college student has symptoms of constant fatigue for the past few weeks, they would include a mono test.

Oh well, at least I finally have an idea.

I never trusted my campus health center once my best friends roommate went and was told she had the flu and they pumped her up with all sorts of meds. Turns out, she was pregnant! Duh, isn't that the first thing they usually ask, "Is there any chance you could be pregnant?".

i went to my campus health center with pink eye, and i knew it was pink eye before i went. they tried to tell me i had to go to an ophthalmologist because it could be eye ulcers?!? i was like no just give me some eye drops. long story short they wouldn't so i had to go to the emergency room just for stupid eye drops!

My sis got it when she was 16 and the doctor told her she was just run down and gave her vitamin tablets. My mum went back with her and got a blood test. Was told they'd get the result in 2 weeks. My sis got phoned by the blood specialist in hospital the next day as her platelet count was dangerously low. She'd been taking aspirin which was totally the wrong thing to do!

I had mono as a teen. I remember having to get regular blood tests, and lots of sleep. I pretty much couldn't do anything, but go to school. It was exhausting!

So since that is a good possibility do get plenty of rest and eat a healthy diet to boosted your immune system.
