another physical cause of fatigue
« on: February 12, 2018, 03:36:27 PM »
is an underfunctioning thyroid.

I take hormones for low thyroid levels.  I've been taking them for years now, except sometimes during self-sabotaging EFs when I don't take my meds at all. (My doc knows about this and also knows how badly I react to "should" and "must" so he doesn't say "oh, you really should take your meds, you know".)

A year or so ago my doc had me reduce the amount for a while. Next blood test showed that had been a bad idea. I have read that hormones for low thyroid are prescribed way too often, but doesn't seem to be in my case.

This is me, too. Makes it very, very difficult if not impossible to find the energy to do anything at all. I once had any introductory visit with an acupuncturist, his treatment left me feeling amazing for about a week with tons of energy and a good mood. I should go back. If only I had the energy to get there....
