Gilberts Syndrome

Hello, Thank you for reading.

I was diagnosed with Gilberts Syndrome about 2-3years ago and once again by my current PCP 4 month ago. I thought nothing of it as they told me that it is harmless and does not have any symptoms. Well, 2 years ago i started feeling sort of fatigued through out the day. At first it happened in the september month of that said year. then again in march-april.... then a couple months later i was in full fatigue mode .. this lasted up until now, 2 years later....i go throughout my day very tired/fatigued. I got countless blood work studies done, they thought my thyroid was off... so they put me on synthryroid for a 7month period and it did nothing. (my values were under by a fraction which didnt even need to be treated but my doctor thought it might help w/ my tiredness) then they thought i had depression....which is possible, but its unlikely since everything in my life is perfect and im very happy. So other blood work checked all my vitamins... even HIV ... everything came back fine. I recently just thought to search GS in hopes to find out more, I was shocked when i found individuals who had GS experience what i have been for the past 2 years.... same false diagnosis, same pains in their back under the ribs... everything suggests that my GS is causing my fatigue. I tried doing vegetarian for a week or so ... saw very minimal improvement.. my dr even put me on welbutrin xl ... nothing ..... absolutley NOTHING is getting rid of my fatigue..........................what should i do? is there any medications that i can take?? anyone.... .
