    Iíve seen 2, the third time I was at the doctors it was for the blood test. As well as speaking to a pharmacist. I have this habit of always feeling like Iím wasting doctors time as itís only a cold and Iím just told itís a virus so you have to wait for your body to fight it off. But itís just gone on for so long and I feel exhausted even after a good nights sleep.

    It sounds like chronic sinusitis. Make an appointment with an ENT.

    I had fatigue for almost nine months and could barely keep my Job, had test after test ...They finally found out I had post viral fatigue from glandular fever. They said if it lasted more than a year it would be declared chronic fatigue and I just had to wait til it went away. Have you been tested for that? I assumed I had been but the doctor had missed it. Hope you feel better soon.

    I'd see an Ears Nose Throat specialist, and while he or she will likely perform an endoscopy (doesn't hurt) of your nasal cavity, I'd be prepared to be told to take one of the over the counter antihistamines (except for Zycam) withOUT the decongestant, and to use saline spray to clean your nose nightly before spraying a dose of Fluticasone Propionate antihistamine nasal spray like Flonase. The two antihistamines work on different prongs, so they can be taken together.

    Many allergies feel awful, like a flu or a cold, and they can deplete your strength. Treating daily with antihistamines through the next season change can set you up to test how well you can live without them in an opposite season.

    Good luck, and let a specialist diagnose you.

    Living with an unemployed addict is the obvious cause of your stress. No amount of "healthy lifestyle" is going to compensate for being with a drug addict who can't keep a job. No amount of doctors or antibiotics or herbs or whatever are going to make you feel better then you live in a hazmat zone. Considering how honest addicts tend to be, get an STD panel done especially including hep b and c and hiv.

    While I understand some of your judgement because of my previous posts, my partner has had loads of support for his addiction and has been clean for 4 months now. Nor has he ever cheated on me, so that kind of judgement is both nasty and uncalled for. Yes itís hard because heís not working but heís been at doctors continually about the ongoing headaches. So while money wise I can get stressed, home life is generally good! I understand that this forum is used to advice but I was asking for advice about my illness not judgments on my relationship which this post isnít about.
