Re: Tired all the time

I think tiredness is very common for anxiety, depression, ADD. I am also tired, and have a very hard time getting out of bed. I think its a combination of bad sleep, lack of motivation, and anxiety all coming into virtous cycle. Difficult to say which causes what.

Re: Tired all the time

Do you have any diagnoses? What meds are you taking?

I felt exactly as you described. And I mean everyday. All the time.

I got diagnosed last week and started Adderall and I have experienced a surge in energy. I don't know if it's due to the meds or the lessening of the depression that I think I was having before getting diagnosed. Or if it's both.

My guess is it's probably both.

Can you give us a little more background info on you, if you don't mind?

Have they checked your iron levels? Your thyroid levels? Your vitamin D levels, etc?

I'm taking vitamin D with calcium and also taking a prenatal vitamin(even though I'm not pregnant)..and it helps with my fatigue.

Be sure to talk to your doctor about vitamin supplements.

Patients with fibromyalgia have low D levels... which we need in order to have a somewhat normal day.

Have they suggested pool/water therapy to keep help work your muscles?

I have a sero-negative inflammatory arthritis. Most family doctors are at a loss unless you have rheumatoid arthritis. When the inflammation was at its worst, I slept round the clock, much like one does with a bad case of influenza. As my doctor explained, the body fights inflammation as it does an infection and its hard work, thus the fatigue. Once I saw a rheumatologist and began treatment, my fatigue level improved.

Excel, have you had a chance to see a rheumatologist? With the muscle atrophy, do you/they think it could be a type of myositis?

I can definitely attest to inflammation (autoimmunity) being a source of debilitating fatigue. If you haven't seen a specialist yet, it'd be worth your while to go and rule out the possibility.

Best of luck to you. Please keep us posted.

Re: Tired all the time

Now that I'm of the cymbalta, and on Lexapro I'm not as tired. I still don't feel like doing a lot of things.

Red face Re: Tired all the time

Always when you have fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue have your thyroid levels checked, a very important to ask them when checking your thyroid to please check your t3 & t4 levels not just your tsh levels, tsh levels can change from min to min so it's not a accurate reading
