feeling very weak and tired

Reply Sun 24 Jan, 2010 10:27 am
I feel exactly the same way. First I am going through meanopause plus I am a vegetarian. I know why I feel so tired and strenthless. All I think most of the time is that I wasted my life time living with my Ex-husband so I feel depress most of the time specially when I am not working that's what makes me tired. But if I have to put a another cap on then I am full on like an rocket no one can come in my way.
Passed for today. My Reasons.
Distressed emotionaly.
Weak and tired
Abscent mind
Most of the time I am happy when I am at work with people. I go early in the morning and can come late in the evening when I need to assist some one. I don't mind. How lonly the person can be.

Take Care

Try olive leaf extract oil. (The oil not tablets or pills) Just a small teaspoon twice a day. Drink a cuppa with it as it has a very sweet bitter taste.
The massive high levels of antioxidents (30 times higher than olives) will boost your energy levels naturally. Also it is one of the best natural aids to arthritis. I have seen people to the point of being wheel chair bound with arthritis who have regained their mobility and lifestyle.

Regarding sleeping better. Tonight when you retire to bed try lying on your side for about ten minutes in the dark. See if your breathing through the nose is better lying on one side than the other. If you find one side is beter than the other (clearer) try to go to sleep lying on your good side.

Regarding sleep. If you let your head warm the pillow then turn the pillow over to the cool side it is more restful. If you wake during the night try once again turning the pillow over.

As regarding drinking plenty of water. Yes it is good for you but not for 3 hours before you go to sleep as you will have to awake through the night to vist the toilet. Also if you should visit the toilet do not switch on any lights. Just use a small dim torch.

Another thing you should consider, drinking plenty of water maybe fine. But the constant consumption of water containing Chlorine destroys the bodies intestinal bacteria which is needed to adequatly remove minerals and vitamins from your food. So even though you are eating well you may be lacking much needed trace elements.

Many people drink bottled water from plastic bottles. This is fine if the water is kept cool. However because much bottled water is not Spring water as stated but simply tap water put through a "Revers Osmosis" filtration system. It is so pure that it will sometime leach the plastic from a container when it becomes warm. Once in the blood stream the plastic residue can cause massive and sometimes fatal results (Cancer).

Personally I drink water from the tap that passes through a small charcoal filter to remove Chlorine and other metals. Bottled water costs $3,000 for 1,000 litre bottles. Town tap water of good quality costs (for the same quantity) $3 per thousand litres

Another thing you should not do if you want to get a good nights sleep is sit in front of a computer or the TV for at least 3 hours before you retire.

Hope this has helped somewhat.

Did your calcium numbers come back high at all? Do you get headaches? Some of your symptoms sound like hyperparathyroidism. It makes you very weak, pains in stomach and back, nausia. Once mine got bad I had a little bit of disorientation. I'm not sure if it fits with the eating alot and not gaining weigh though. Just a thought. I had this. I was very, very weak and docs told me nothing wrong. Some doctors think if your calcium is just a little high it is ok..But I have been told by specialists it's not. I also saw on Dr. Oz that this is a very commonly missed diagnosis by doctors.
It is mostly something older people get but I was 30 when I had mine removed. The best part is that you have 4 parathyroids and usually only one is swollen causing the symptoms. So if you have this it is a simple outpatient surgery and no lasting effects. Just a thought!

This is my first time posting on here. I just wrote this but I didn't see it post s sorry if this posts twice.
Did you check your calcium levels? I have heard from multiple sources ( one of them being The Dr. Oz show) that doctors often overlook a slightly elevated calcium level. But it can cause very serious symptoms. I was sick for awhile before they caught that I had hyperparathyroidism. It can make you very weak. I am not sure of your age but it usually occurs in older people but I was only 30 when I had it. I don't think your your eating alot is a symptom of this but just a thought. A simple surgery to remove one of the parathyroids and a small scar on your neck and life is normal again.
I hope you feel well again. Knowing you feel bad and not knowing what is wrong can be very scary....but it could be something that has a very simple fix. Smile

I completely agree with flushd.You may not be taking a proper sleep.Doctors always advice to take a proper sleep of 8 hours. Just give it a try. May be it will work.

I realise this is an old thread but I just read right through it as I have all the symptoms the same as the OP. I feel absolutely dreadful. My boss has let me work from home today because I didn't feel like I could make it in but I didn't want to just lie about. I've been lying about for a week previously and it didn't help, so I asked if I could do some work from home. Even as I type this the muscles in my arms feel so weak.

I have suffered from mental health problems (anxiety/depression) for 12 years. I was hoping as I read through this that the OP would find something physically wrong that I could be tested for, but it seems she didn't. I don't feel emotionally bad, but I never really do feel emotionally bad, sometimes my thoughts race uncontrollably and I have episodes of severe derealisation which scare me witless and leave me in tears (derealisation where it feels like you don't exist, or the world doesn't exist, or you exist on different planes - it's a form of dissociation).

So unlike the OP I know I have mental health problems and I guess I'm going to have to admit this is what causes these horrible feelings. Posters here were surprised that anxiety/depression can make people feel this way without even feeling sad and I still go through phases of thinking it just MUST be something else. How can my mind be doing this to me? But I can't think of another answer. The easiest way for me to think about it is that my body has been under immense pressure from being tense and it is exhausted.

I hope others feel better soon and if anybody has had these symptoms and got over them, please will you let me know how? I'm desperate to get my life back.

Regular diet and exercise is the best solution to avoid such physical problems.
