no today fatigue has taken its place i mean Crashing fatigue with a vengeance soo is it normal to eerie cue this for as long as I did 3hors??????? I've never experienced it for so long and probably my worse experience so far I was like a zombie, even at the doctors so had my bllood measured which was low so have to have yet another blood test done next week, as to which he does NOT I honk I'm in peri yet not even with all my symptoms I'm having or got!!mmmmmmi differ I know iam.

im just hoping this medication I've been given really does help with my nausea?

but like I said is it normal to experience it for this long? I'm just glad it's my day off I went extremly tired and as normal came on like a drop of a hat!!!.

ots a question I never even thought about asking the doctor but what helps with the fatigue? And foods to eat what can anyone recommend to help.

    When I wake in the morning I'm sooo tired the only way I can get out of bed is to plan when I can have a nap so I have something to look forward to! I don't always crash but helps to be prepared.

    I take Co enzyme Q10 as I think it helps convert foods to energy and our supplies diminish as we get older. And I think it helps with brain function and helps with the brain fog. I believe in it anyway which is half the battle!

      Awww, Happy Birthday Shelly. 

      Yes I definitely get the crashing fatigue, comes out of nowhere. I scare my husband when I have to go to sleep unexpectedly!

      I too am anaemic and have had low B12. I take Ferogloblin with B12 for tiredness and fatigue and it has raised now. But ferretin still low despite taking prescribed iron too. I think its my heavy periods and fibroids. I keep hoping they'll stop soon! I'm 57! 

      Children grown up, but grandchildren keeping me young.

      Thanks Maria. I've only been offered a hysterectomy or the mirena coil. Don't fancy either of those! Someone on here had an ablation I think to remove fibroids. I'm thinking that I should try that soon. I've been saying that for 12 months!! Thinking periods will stop.

    Could you be anemic?

    I use a whole food vitamin.  Iron.  Extra B12 and B vitamins.

    Do you have chronic fatigue syndrome, or is this just during the period?

    I would get my thyroid levels checked, too.
