Tiredness is worrying me.

Posted , 7 users are following.

I was winded today afterclimbing stairs,then went to my dept and started moving things around, again very winded and wiped out. I have been taking b vitamins and multivitamin. Im guessing this is the fibroid. My question is, if blood flow is feeding fibroid, would this make me anemic since basically its taking nourishment away? I have preop tommorow so hopefully everything will be fine.

    Have you had a blood test for Iron and HGB. If not maybe worth asking for it to rule out if anaemic or low in iron. If you are low supplements could help. If your periods are heavyish in general it could deplete your reserves.

    Absolutely. I have had my operation opposite me was a girl on blood transfusion because she was anemic and had lost lots of blood because of Fibroids. I also felt constantly tired, no energy, felt like sleeping all the time.

    Hi.thats a good question that I don't know the answer to, but a good point that could explain my tiredness as I don't have heavy blood loss.

    I do get extremely tired soon after doing something quite minor .

    I get all sorts of aches and pains from pelvic area.sorry I couldn't answer yur question.

    This sensation is common with anaemia. Blood flow to a fibroid would not cause anaemia as you are not losing blood. However if you have heavy menstrual bleeding you may well be anaemic.

    Hi

    What op are you having?

    My blood loss when on my period is scary leaving me feeling drained and tearful for days.

    I'm thinking that hysterectomy is my only option now.
