Well those energy things will do nothing for you. The energy you get is quick and will give you a down that will make it much worse for you. Eat pasta and stuff with a lot of carbs.

Are you on B-12 Shots? They help a little. How is your iron level, that makes a huge difference. Are you taking a good multi-vitamin? That makes all the difference in my energy level. I still feel tired most of the time but not totally run down like I have before.

Hi
Im tired alot too. I no that some of my tiredness is due to the very cold weather we have been havin down here in Ontario or is it up there in Ontario? I have never taken b-12 shots I take iron pills multi-vitamin and vitamin d . Is everone else taken there vitamin D ? That helps our fragile bones (from being on pred. for so long) and replaces the sun that we dont get much here in the winter. I am gonna ask my Dr. about getting the b-12 shot



Thanks Tammy

Hey davyb, I am always tired (beyond tired) & nothing I have tried has seemed to help. I am going to ask my GI when I see her again if I can try the B12 shota to see if they will help. I hope you start feeling better.

I am tired a lot too but I believe it's because I am taking Diovan for my high blood pressure. It has not been normal since I had my baby so I am on meds for that now along with Pentasa for crohn's and two inhalers for asthma. I hope you find something to help you. I know it sucks not having any energy. Sorry I don't have any useful advice.

Hi Tammy, I should take the Vitamin D as I have bone thinning in my hips and spine but I don't. Tut tut, I hear you say lol. I know I should its just that when I was prescribed it about 4 years ago, the only pill they could give me was one that you had to crunch (yuk) and I wasn't too keen on the idea, thought it would make me vomit. Can't even stand the taste of paracetamol. So I was just wondering, do you have to crunch or chew yours? If I can get one that I can just swallow then I'll take it no problem.

Definitely give the B-12 a try. I get the B-12 and I still find myself worn out a lot so I can't imagine not getting the B-12. LOL Make sure u eat well balanced foods and try to exercise some. (I don't do this myself, lmao but I hear it helps) Good Luck. *hands you a pillow* just in case

Exercising 4-5 days/week was the only thing that helped with my fatigue, I take B12 supplements too but never noticed much of a difference until I started exercising regularly which also helped with my depression and anxiety and sleep problems and mood, the list goes on.
