From this study (3 years ago):
Tired All the time even with caffeine. Body aches constantly and put me in tears. when I lay on my back my chest and back both hurt plus its hard to breath. when i stand in one spot i feel disconnected from my body. I lose thoughts very easily as i speak mid sentence, forget what im talking about. Dont eat much not that im not hungry but because i just dont feel like getting up.it hurts to much to get up to do it. Ive been getting more acne now then I did when I was a teenager. its in my hair and makes me itch.
