Super, duper Fatigue

Hellp...Back after a few years and still having worriesome symptoms....yuck!! Have had bouts of fatigue but the last couple months have been dabilitating...can't get anything done..nap at least 2 x;s a day and does not help...Going to the gyn Wednesday to see if he can not want HRT.

Started taking B-150 vitamins, along with Centrum sulver and now started the Black Cohosh..not sure if that stuff is safe or works.

I go to the gym..but can barely make it and have started sluffing off on that. I am under some stress....5 pets (new puppy) our own business, and have always had sleep disorder. However, I am not even taking ambien now and sleep better during the night but still am exhausted...(like a feeling from deep inside) all day long.

Any suggestions or just to vent would help right now..

HI Pam! Perimenopause can last 10-15 years. Do the symptoms get better? Ususally, and for most the symptoms will come and go, BUT not necessarily!

I have had the fatigue and I have supplements that I found help. But don't 'fix' it.... Unfortunately, I still can't go to bed though and actually go to sleep...

I did have a thought as I read your first post in this thread... Have you had your glucose checked? The sleeping and tired can also be a symptoms of glucose too high. It is recomended that adults ovver 45 be tested for diabetes every 3 years...

"That's why the American Diabetes Association has long recommended that adults be screened for diabetes starting by at least age 45 and that the test be repeated every three years. Younger adults with diabetes risk factors, such as obesity or family history, should begin screenings earlier."

from American diabetes organization ..

Just something to talk to your dr about, or just ask to be tested if you haven't been recently.
