Extreme chronic debilitating fatigue

Posted , 10 users are following.

For the past 2 days i have been struck with such fatigue that i never experienced in my entire life. Its to the point where i am laying for most of the day. My heart has palps and i am drinking plenty of water so i do not become dehydrated. Is this normal at perimenopause because i am quite worried.

    Yes.. I had this in the fall and had no idea if it was my life ( busy summer with kids) or what cuz all I would do was sleep.. Wake up, get them to school and then lay back down usually for a long nap then when they came home I did what needed and then early to bed.. It was difficult to do anything and felt I could nap anywhere. I remember saying to myself I needed to move so all I could do was do a few leg lifts on the floor. I did blood work too and it turned out good. So then I started doubling a few supplements and weeks later I was feeling a little better. But wow it wiped me out-- I really thought I had a major disease..

    Yes, it was one of my first symptoms too... I have gone from a person who was quite flexible in body, happy go lucky and lots of stamina to stiff as a board with aches and pains everywhere plus exhaustion like I have never known! It came on quick and has never really left despite trying HRT and vit and minerals... I'm 47 and it started around 5 yrs ago.

    I have just started taking vit d, magnesium, evening primrose oil, b vits and a multivitamin tablet daily in a hope that they may help... as yet I have yet to feel a difference.

    Some days are a bit better than others but there is no rhyme or reason why... just a mad hormonal body i think.

    You're not alone, we're all in it together.

    Lots of love your way, xxx.

    Tiredness was my very first symptom and I wanted to sleep all the time. Unfortunately, once that symptom disappeared it was replaced by insomnia. Listen to your body and if you need to lie down or nap then do that. All the best.
