Only my second post, but I enjoy reading through these forums. I have not been officially diagnosed with narcolepsy. Since I was a wee bit teen (I am 31 now) I have struggled with fatigue and sleep issues primarily NES. When I take the Narcolepsy self quizzes it's pretty darn high. I fall asleep in meetings, after lunch regardless of what I eat, and pretty much am miserable after 2 PM. I use to take naps in my car and under my desk at work. I can't even go shopping for more then two hours without feeling incredibly fatigued-phew!
My original sleep study showed nothing, but I am doing a follow up with a sleep specialist as he only looked for apnea. I have also done the whole kit and caboodle of thyroid, vitamins, GI, allergies, anemia, lymphnodes, act.
I have always had depression by my new Psychiatrist recently diagnosed me with ADHD. I think I am primarily PI.
Is there anyone else who is diagnosed with both? Maybe even SCT? I know they can contribute to fatigue more. Just curious what your experiences were and how you they impacted you. Which one did you get diagnosed first? What treatment options work well for you?
I am wondering if my ADHD could be causing me fatigue although everyone says no.
