Feeling better again today

Saturday, February 02, 2013

So really not sure again why one day I feel fine and the next day I am crashing. I don't like to complain a lot as it seems I can go for almost a year without any symptoms and then all of a sudden I am fighting everyday just to have some energy. I am going to look into finding a good dietitian person whom I can communicate with and share all my food trackers, vitamins and such that I take and see if they can see anything that I haven't seen about what I am eating or drinking or whatever. My biggest frustration is that I have already had so many tests and have been tracking my food forever and really don't eat anything too out of wack. So if any of you know of a good on line recourse let me know.
At least today I am feeling better. I tried to eat a lot of healthy foods yesterday and more salt since I have the low blood pressure. I must have done a good job at that as I am up two pounds since yesterday. At this point I wouldn't even care about a weight gain if I could just know that I would feel good. Health to me is everything.
I hope all of you are doing great. Make it a great day.
Sallie

    When it's this hard to figure out, it's probably something specific to you that doesn't match up well to very many other people. I hope you figure out how to deal with it, or avoid having this happen very often!

    There are so many vitamins and nutrients you can be low on...

    I found myself adding sea kelp (iodine)

    Who'd ever think about being low on iodine???

    Glad you are feeling better!

    Hi Sallie! I remember this past summer, I was majorly dragging. I needed to talk myself up just to walk from the house to the pool and many times I felt like I needed to give myself a pep talk just to get out of bed in the a.m. And it was so frustrating b/c I wanted to be active and energetic, but was feeling incredibly lethargic. (My doc even tested me for mono!) I remember wondering if it was the heat, but no one else was responding the same way. Anyway, once I learned that I was anemic (following bloodwork) and started taking a supplement, I felt much better (although it took a while to build up in my system). I, like you, remember thinking, "If it's my diet, I would rather put on a few pounds and feel good than feel like crap." I know you are going through a tough time with this, but if you are able to put your finger on it eventually, you will feel so much better and it will have been so worth it. I don't know if your doctor checks all of your vitamin levels... Maybe you could request that he/she do this (and look at your Vit D, Vit B, Iron, etc.) the next time you see him/her. Wouldn't it be nice to learn that all you need is a supplement? Or maybe a dietician can order the same bloodwork and make some suggestions with respect to your diet? You are a lovely person and deserve to feel better! xo

    That is great you are feeling better, but it does sound like you do need a Dietition to help you figure out what may be going on. As this is a regular occurence, there might be something you are having or eating that may not be helpful. I have low blood pressure that sometimes the bottom drops out of, but I have never had anything like you describe. I just almost blackout if I get up from sitting or laying down too quickly. Fortunately, its very rare that it happens.
    Hope you continue to feel better and have a great weekend!

    Sallie, a dietician is probably a good idea. I hope you have many good days ahead.
