Is anyone else sooo tired?

post #1 of 12

I am really dragging these days and can barely keep my eyes open at times. Is anyone else feeling this way?

Me!!!! I had them test my thyroid as I do have a problem withmy thyroid but it came back normal. However they tested my iron levels and I'm very low. Since starting iron supplements 3 days ago I feel less tired. Maybe you should get your iron levels tested.

I was dragggggggggging tired with my last pregnancy. That's when they found out I had hypothyroidism. Even if tired is the only symptom you have, don't disreguard it.

How do they test for that? I have mentioned to my midwife that I am exhausted, but she didn't seem to worried as I have a 15 month old that is very busy.

It is a simple blood test. They can do it when they are running any of your other tests. And being tired is one thing but being physically exhaused is another. Don't take no for an answer, get the test. They will probably also check you iron levels too.

I did get my iron checked and it was borderline low but not anemic. I've been drinking liquid chlorophyll every day and it seems to have really helped.

count me in..just got the results from the doctor yesterday...low iron levels. low b12 and hypothyroidism. No wonder I have been feeling so anxious and tired all the time!! Went to the drug store last night and bought some iron and b12 suppliments. What kind of iron suppliments do you guys take? Is there any difference between the brands? I am clueless!!
