Unusual Fatigue And Brainfog. Doctor Doesn't Know What To Do.
I thought you guys might have some ideas on what I should do.
I'm 22, male and I just came home from a two months long trip
through Asia. When I was on Bali I ended up in the hospital with
dengue fever, but it was a quite mild case according to the
doctors, and after leaving the hospital I felt pretty good after
a week or so.
One week after I went to Tokyo and stayed there for about two weeks.
Since I started traveling, I've been skipping breakfast only drinking
som high quality tea in the mornings, and eating two big meals
I've tried to eat as close to slow-carb/paleo as possible, but it's
been pretty hard at times, and I've been eating some really nasty
japanese and asian food.
I've gotten a lot of sleep while staying in one place, but every time
I've gone from one place to another, I've had to take early flights
or had to deal with jet lag. This has been quite a lot of stress on
my body, and I've also been doing a little bit of modafinil.
After coming home to Norway I did my first workout after the dengue
fever. First did some squats with 65kg x 5 rep x 3 set and
afterwards I did a WOD with hang-ups, crunches and pushups for 15 min
and really pushed myself.
After the workout I had a little bit of a headache, and I felt really
weird in my body. I was laying on the floor and it took a long time
to get my pulse down.
I went to watch a movie with some friends afterwards, and I felt
my heart kept pumping really hard, not fast, but hard. I also had
quite a bit of brain fog and was really fatigued, and had a hard
time focusing on the film.
This is five days a ago, and I've feel really fatigued every day since.
I have a hard time focusing, and I can feel my brain is slowed down.
Can't properly find the right words when I express myself, my vision
falls out of focus a lot.
I'm also very sensitive to cold and my hands a shaking a little bit.
I've been eating very healthy the last week, and I usually have a
real edge in the morning, but in the last days I've been really
tired and off.
My piss was quite dark the days after the workout and think I
over did it on my hang-ups, so I was suspecting rhabdomyolysis.
I went to the doctor and she didn't find anything on the urine
samples or the blood work.
She said it's normal to get some type of post viral fatigue after
dengue fever, but I've felt so great the last month after the dengue,
so it seems weird that it should suddenly hit me now.
Does anyone have an idea of what this could be, or what I should do?
I'm suspecting it can be some problems with the adrenal of thyroid gland,
but I don't know enough about that to be sure.
Any tips or advice would help!
