    I am 33 year old woman that do not smoke or do drugs. I have been feeling fatigue for the past three years. I had some shortness of breath when i go long distances but that has stopped. I usually feel tired on the left side of my chest and usually have to lay down. usually when I lay down I feel ok, but not rested. I have been on anti psychotic medications for eight years. I was on geodon and effexor for two years, then I was on resperidal and effexor for another one and a half years and now I have been on abilify and seroquel for one year. I have no desie to do the things that I use to enjoy and I just feel fatigued all the time especially in my chest. I will add that I was also on Simvastatin,and am currently taking lopressor and norvasc for blood pressure for about three years. I have been tested for HIV three weeks after a possible exposure to the disease this year and tested negative( I am plannig on going at the 90 day mark for a retest). I was suffering some indegestion as well. The indegestion has since stopped six months ago( i only had indegestion for about four or so months)

    My main concern is the fatigue. I have blacked out on several occasions, but not to serious( I just had to sit it out for a couple of minutes, like three to five minutes) and went to the docotor and she did an EKG and everythign came back normal.

    I am tired of being tired and need some advice. can anyone help me as to what I souhld do. All my test came back normal (STDs, etc.).

    I am a little overweight ( I am 5' 9" and weighed 230 pounds and have lost at least 20 pounds). I have had no appetite since taking the abilify for about four months. Since then I have regained an appetite(the reason I suspect I have lost weight). I have also have low grade fevers as well.

    Like I said earlier, my main concern is the fatigue, I never feel rested when I rest.
