This answer was rated:

i have been suffering with pain in my joints and muscles that feel like i have pulled them, but also tiredness that leaves me weak, i cant walk far without being out of breath.
JA: The Doctor can help. To begin, how long have you had the tiredness? Have you used any medication for it?
Customer: since 2018 no medication for it
JA: Thanks for that. Have you seen a doctor about the tiredness?
Customer: yes , they say because i have anxity and tae anti depression medication they think its because of that, but i have tried coming down on that medication to a lower dose but nothing changes, they also thought that because i have servere ibs and cant eat alot it could contribute to that too
JA: Thank you so much for your answers. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history the Doctor should know?
Customer: so i have been diagnosed with , acid refulx and servere ibs, anxity and depression, raynauds syndrome, aspergers.

You most likely have Fibromyalgia

That is a disorder of generalized wide spread pain

It occur with increased frequency in females with IBS and anxiety/depression

You need to take Gabapentin and have Cognitive behavior therapy to treat this
