I have been dealing with severe fatigue, muscle tension, burning under the skin for 8 + months now?

I have been dealing with severe fatigue, muscle tension, burning under the skin for 8 + months now. I also had a little bit of neuropathy in both my feet and legs, but I’ve managed to calm that down with lots of stretching.

I have been tested for thyroid imbalance (my levels are fine and I’m on Synthroid for hypothyroidism), Lupus, Lymes, Hep C, Vitamin Deficiencies, and Diabetes. All came back negative/fine. I’m a 47 year old woman — and don’t know what to do next: the only thing I have been prescribed for all of this has been antidepressants–and I can’t take them/don’t feel they are the solution. Who is the next doctor to see about this? Could it be adrenal fatigue — as I don’t handle stress particularly well; maybe I crashed my system? Could it be all premenopausal?

Any advice would be appreciated.

I would exclude the possibility of adrenal problem now ,while , I think it is caused by hypothyroidism and neuropathy..
I recommend checking for calcium deficiency too..

Hi..
Thanks for the query..

Your symptoms are probably due to Neuropathy only..

Consult a Neurophysiology and get evaluated..

A thorough clinical examination and investigation like blood test the MRI scan can be done..

For now take a Nutritious diet, start multivitamins and sufficient rest..
Do moderate workout and meditation to reduce stress..
