What could be causing extreme fatigue in my 19 year old daughter?


Answer by  Ident30 (33)

If you live in an area that has a lot of deer, she might have Lyme disease. She might have chronic fatigue syndrome. She might have mononucleosis. She might have leukemia. She might not be getting enough oxygen, especially at night. She might be depressed. I strongly suggest you get her to a good doctor.

Young girls lose a lot of iron and magnesium during their periods, causing anemia and magnesium deficit; iron and magnesium supplements should be taken, especially around period times. Also many teenage girls tend to diet and cut out carbs and proteins, to feed mainly on sugar and high fat but poor energy content foodstuff.

There could be a number of things wrong. She could be just over extended on what she does everyday. She could have something medically wrong. The first step is to take her to a doctor. And talk with him/her about your daughters symptoms.
