  • From this study (4 years ago):

  • I entered VA healthcare due to PTSD/Anxiety issues, and have ended up feeling better in that sense, but have ended up 60 lbs overweight for the first time in my life, and so fatigued that I have to use a walker at home, and a motorized scooter in public places.

    My doc is thinking Fibromyalgia...
    I've just started wondering if it could be my meds.
