Depression and GS

Posted , 5 users are following.

I have been so depressed lately to the point where it is getting on my wifes nerves. I know that I have had GS whole life. I have only started feeling like crap when just recently in my 30s . Mostly weakness and anxiety and depression. I thought that I had some type of cancer because I was losing weight and getting weaker day by day. My gp just wrote it off as anxiety. I am having a hard time getting out of bed in the mornings and i have to train for a half marathon coming up in Feb. no matter what people tell me I just fell like I have not much longer for this world. I just hope my GP didnt look over something because i am a healthy looking person.

    Get tested for Vit D; jaundice is associated with low D levels and GS is pretty much a jaundice magnet. Though if this is the problem it takes months to notice an improvement when supplementing vit D.

      Thanks. GPs dont usually routinely test for vit d levels. (cost?)

      I have taken vit d for years anyway because due to vitiligo I cant take the sun!

      Whatever works for you is good so keep going!

    I echo the Vit D suggestion. I take between 8-10,000 iu of Vit d3 daily and have noticed a big improvement (actually came on here to tell my story but this threads as good a place as any!)

    I tried every supplement going, ate healthy and drank 4 litres of water daily and nothing has helped me as much as Vit d3 has.

    As said above though, it didnt happen overnight, I stuck at it for a good few weeks before noticing an improvement in my fatigue and weakness.

    All the best and good luck.
