I really am at a loss. I have done 2 rounds of blood work over the past four months and I am just completely frustrated. I am currently on weekly B12 shots for a B12 deficiency. The doctor told me in August so I did this for 6 weeks and then re-tested in December...my levels went up slightly. So I am back on these weekly shots. Here, lies the real issue. I think this is masking something else. I had my second back surgery in February and have not felt the same since. I even requested part time working after my recovery becuase I could not stop falling asleep during mid-day. This still is going on. I changed jobs to one closer to my home and every day I go and sleep for my lunch hour and feel like I could continue to sleep the entire rest of the day and night. There is a "MAJOR" urge of needing to sleep and I can't get enough. I have been through what I would call a depression several years ago and I jsut don't feel like this is the same thing. I just think it is odd how it all started after my last surgery. They did all the bloodwork for anemia, thyroid, blood counts, etc. I even had a period last 13 weeks in the midst of all of this. My last one was only 2 weeks, but I think this is all very strange healthwise for my last year. I have always been very active, never needed too much sleep (I was in public accounting, so i worked many hours) and jsut do not understand what is going on! I cannot emphasize enought the constant urge for an immediate sleep of any amount although I get very frustrated if it cannot be more than an hour or so. I would love 2 and 3 hours at a time. I just want to research this more and get the doctors to run more tests, becuase this is really affecting my quality of life...
sorry so long!
