    Get plenty of rest whenever you can. Might be worth checking with your gp to see if you are aneamic as this is common with lupus.

      Hi jacs54002

      I get 3 monthly B12 shots aswell....because i take metformin for type 2 diabetes which blocks B12 from absorbing into your system..and age will block absorption aswell due to the protein Intrinsic Factor helping the B12 through th gut the ilium and then the system starts to decline in old age.. I feel sooo much better for it and about two weeks before the shot is due i start to wilt and then i use B12 patches....until i get my shot....

    Only thing is to pace yourself. I have it too and I've learned the hard way. Health diet helps. Fish and fruit work for me.. But not over doing it and rest up when your body tells you to and you will feel much better.

    i also get eye drops from my GP, They are actually false tears but stop the gritty feeling. Living with it 20 years now. Hope ur better soon..

      You can eat a variety of foods but I find fruit and fish give me energy, I blend the fruit into a smoothie , good for u..

      having said this, I now am on V B12 injections every 3 months and iron tablets and do feel better for it too. Take care 🙂

    Hi runtree98674

    Ask your health provider to do a blood tests and check your B12 and iron levels......these are associated.... if your B12 and iron are low you will be very fatigued....best wishes...

    I get chronic fatigue regularly and it's awful. All I can do is rest as much as I can. I couldn't excercise during these times if I wanted to, but I do try and do some gentle exercise when I'm okish! I would see your doctor though and just get checked out, especially with the breathlessness, you need to make sure nothing nasty is going on. Also like other people mention, make sure you eat as healthily as possible.  Hope you feel better soon!
