Fatigue disorders

I was a triathlete when I became overwhelmingly lethargic, 21 years later still the same. It began with Glandular Fever then Hashimoto's Thyroiditis together with Neurally Mediated Orthostatic Hypotension and finally Narcolepsy. 100mg Oroxine, and Modafinil. I am happy to lie down and sleep and would have relief in never waking up.

Any suggestions would be great.

From a thyroid standpoint would recommend looking at TSH, T4 and T3 and make certain these are in the normal range on your current medications.

would also test am cortisol to exclude adrenal insufficiency -- if <11 then ACTH stimulation test may be needed.
