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?

Re: Tired all the time

have you other stresses in your life? I was like this and went to so many doctors, everything negative. It was only when my life in general was happier and I had less stress that it miraculously vanished

Re: Tired all the time

This is the reason I found out about Inattentive ADD, originally from chronic fatigue. Doesn't matter how much sleep I get. I can drink a 5 hour energy and go right to sleep. I can only sleep at night though cause even though I'm physically tired my mind won't go to sleep during the day. I don't have meds yet. They're doing lots of tests with me. Blood work, sleep study, cortisol/adrenals, maybe it's just part of not enough dopamine to convert to norepinephrine that makes me tired.

Re: Tired all the time

maybe it's the meds. I had been complaining about stress and I've been on lexapro for 2 weeks and feel aweful. I have zero drive and zero energy. I'd rather be angry all the time than go through this.

Re: Tired all the time

I suffer from the same problem and lately I have been completely exhausted. Adderall helps a little, but not consistently. I also have depression and anxiety which contribute, I'm sure. Maybe I should see my doctor, but he probably won't find anything.

Re: Tired all the time

Anxiety will make you feel tired all day. Working and being tired is not good at all
