Ive just come back from a second opinion appointment this morning with two possible diagnosis'
1. Early menopause
2. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
I have had a full set of bloods done this morning, results early next week. It included Thyroid and Hormone levels.
The Dr is pointing towards CFS. I know there is no actual cure for this, but I did ask my GP what can be done to help it etc.
She's told me that they treat is with Prozac or Cymbalta - an antidepressant
Im so so hesitant to go on AD's, Ive been on them before (5 years agon) for 6 months (lexapro) but I also gained 25kgs
She's assured me that Prozac or Cymbalta has no weight gain issues, but Ive been doing some research and seen that these two drugs are incredibly hard to come off?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
This isnt to treat any form of depression, it's just the CFS if the blood test rules out Early Menopause. I passed the depression test fine.
