I know i'm quite late on here but i found your post and the replies that followed and finally felt like i wasnt entirely alone. i have horrible severe fatigue paired with insane insomnia and an attention span of a squirrel. i was diagnosed just before christmas 2011. by far my most grueling symptom is my fatigue and concentration and my doctors wont do a thing about it. im on a medical trial so i dont know if that is why they are so hesitant to prescribe me with addderall or something like that but its incredibly frustrating. they dont understand what a struggle it is everyday just to get out of bed let alone sit in lectures all day and write papers all night and on top of that im desperately looking for work because ive been unemployed for 4 months.my neuro on trial wants to prescribe me welbutrin, steroids, flexeral, vicodin, and ambien but wont prescribe me something to focus my mind and keep me from falling asleep in class. its progressively getting worse and i dont know what else to do. coffee doesnt keep me awake anymore, last night i drank an entire cup of espresso...i woke up 8 hours later. its becoming impossible for me to complete assignments on time no matter how early i start. i was on aderall a few years back and it helped me tremendously now when i have a legitimate medical reason to be on it my doctor wont give it to me. does anyone have any suggestions, ive done it all exercise, meditation, healthy eating, vitamins...nothing has helpedView Thread
