I Am So Tired Like Never Before

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

I have been experiencing a tiredness I have never had. Sure we all hav days we feel tired, but this is something different. One, my allergy was and still is bothering me maybe less as long as I'm not outdoors a lot. Two, my Gastro doctor put me on a new medication which I need to take the horse size pill twice daily. Today, I finally looked the med. up on the internet. I found out that some people do have tiredness and weakness when on the med. Lucky me, seems like the med. is working, now yawning all day and evening. I also have been feeling weakness. especially when lifting anything with a little weight to it, or when doing exercise--just never put that together until today. Imagine I will give it some time before calling my doctor as she took me off the last med. that worked so well( causing off lab work-can't take that again). I am alergic to the other med. that works for the problem. Trying to keep doing all I can, but some days just need to as little as possible. My third wonder is if it is Fibromyalgia related.

    I understand, Fran. That kind of fatigue isn't fun!! It tends to make a day miserable while you are trying to get things done or having fun. I hope you can so resolve some of it. I, too, am having some strong fatigue problems but I am sure mine is getting up earlier than usual and start the day off with much activity. Tomorrow is an off day so I am treating my body to some R&R. I hope you start feeling better.

    I am sorry you feel this way. Many meds affect me this way. I do hope that the doctor can help you.

    Praying that the doc can find something that works for you without the side affects you're having now.

    I really hope that you feel better soon. It may be the fibromyalgia symptoms flaring up with the seasonal changes. Hope your symptoms subside. Have a blessed week....Maria

    taking medication can be so complicated. They are helping you but the side affects are not always good. Give it a couple of days and let your doctor know your body is not adjusting to these pills.
