Hi I am wondering if anyone knows of any medicines that can help boost your energy levels.  I am extremely tired all the time and I am eating fruit, meat, fish etc etc going for walks  but I am not feeling the way I used to be which was more active.  Is this normal???

    You don't say whether you've been diagnosed with ME/CFS, or suspect you might have it because of an array of symptoms. If you just have general low energy, don't jump to any conclusions. Low energy can have many causes, and should probably be investigated.

    Hi Orange

    As Jackie has already mentioned, have you had a diagnosis for CFS?...there is a very long list of symptoms for this condition, fatigue is just one of them!

    Most common  illnesses that can cause fatigue are under active thyroid, a lack of B12 absorption, diabetes.... there are many more but you need to visit your GP to discuss

    your fatigue and he should order blood tests to ge to the bottom of your problem!

    Hope this helps?!smile

      Hi Orange

      CFS is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome!

      If you look on this website it gives you an explanation but you can also Google it!smile

    some vitamins like vit c and the b vits are good for boosting energy.  But research  says that a lot of vitamins get excreted in urine.  But if you are run down they are a good idea.#
