Feeling better

Monday, February 18, 2013

Even taking my thyroid medicine & doing positive things for my health, I was still feeling very exhausted. After talking to a pharmacist ,I added a vitamin B complex & vitamin D.

So far, I feel a lot better. I still feel blah when I wake in the morning but as the day goes on, I feel much more awake and alert. I know, I know. Everyone feels blah in the morning, right? emoticon

If you are feeling very tired for what seems to be no reason, talk to a pharmacist about vitamins that may be helpful. Make sure to talk to your doctor to rule out any conditions that may be causing your fatigue first.

*Thanks for all the comments/goodies/and support. It's very appreciated. I took a bit of a break from spark so I will be trying to catch up with blogs, teams, etc. soon. :)

Have a healthy day!

    Yes, I hear that sometimes lack of vitamin D causes fatigue. Good that you are finding solutions!

    Glad to hear you are feeling better. You might want to have your iron levels checked since anemia can be a problem that comes with hypothyroidism. Be sure to take your vitamins several hours (at least 4 hours) after taking your thyroid medicine too. Also, if you take a multivitamin be sure to take a good quality one and it should have selenium in it which is good for your thyroid.

    I am not a morning person either but then I have a thyroid issue too! I really can't remember if not being a morning person came first or after.

    I think even with meds I have good days and bad days, but definately better than before. Your body will adjust or you will adjust. It took a few months after starting the medication to feel more energy.

    Have you ever checked into your adrenal glands being in fatigue or exhaustion? The hormones they put out help the thyroid, when low the thyroid doesn't work right. You pretty much have to see a nautropath to run the test though. Good luck and am glad you found some vitamins to help. I'm a huge vitamin taker.

    Be sure to tell your doctors you're taking the vitamins, as they need this information, especially when they draw blood to check levels.

    When are you taking the vitamins, in the morning or at night? If it's in the morning, consider taking it before bed, so your body has time to digest it overnight and you should see the effects by the morning (at least until it builds up in your body).

    You might also consider trying some yoga or simple movement in the morning to help 'wake up' your body. And don't forget good sleep hygiene!
