I also have chronic fatigue with the vasovagal. I was diagnosed last summer after extensive testing. I am only 26 years old and I am a nurse. I am tired most of the time and notice that i can sleep 10 hours wake up and still feel awful. Not to mention that most of the meds i have tried have not been very successful in treating this disorder. It is very frustrating to deal with this and many times family and friends do not realize the seriousness to this disorder. It was nice to read that somebody else is going through this too sometimes i feel so alone.
