Feeling tired all the time!

I can't seem to find the energy to accomplish anything lately. I just feel tired and uggggh! (My poor house shows it too.) But then when it comes time to turn in for the night, I am wide awake and tossing and turning. I stopped taking my anxiety medication thinking that might be the cause but nothing has changed. It has been months since I have felt like doing much at all. Has anyone else had this issue ongoing and if so, did you find anything that helped you get out of a rut like I am in?

I've been having those issues lately, too - I chalk mine up to the pandemic and everything else going on these days...

That's probably part of my issues as well.

Make an appointment and get full labs. This could be a B12 deficiency. B12 shots can be very helpful in getting your energy back, but the first step is finding out if anything physical is wrong.

Good suggestion! I did have to have a B12 shot about a year ago. I had forgotten about that because it was the only time I have ever had one. Thank you!

I feel the same way and wonder if things have gotten worse due to this pandemic and all of the negative news? I took a sleep medication years ago that helped me a lot but for the life of me I can't remember the name of it.

Always look at labs first. How's your iron/ferritin?
