Fatigue, headaches

I have been suffering with almost constant fatigue for the last few years.
Every day is an effort to get out of bed, and drag myself through the day.
I have had tests before for thyroid etc, ( which I was sue must have been the problem- after reading about thyroid problems)- but the tests are all "normal".
I just feel terrible most days ( I have depression as well, but the fatigue makes everything so hard).
I am female -50 years old- and realise this might be related to peri-menopause , or something, but I'm finding it harder and harder to keep going.
Sometimes ( like the last couple of days- I have headaches, which make me feel worse-I spent almost all day yesterday in bed, but today am "trying" to get the energy to drive the half hour to my elderly mum's to take her shopping - I don't feel like doing anything- but "should" - if you know what I mean)
I'm just sick of feeling so tired.
I've tried vitamins etc, which I don't think really help?
Any suggestions, please?

  • I would get all your hormones tested, plus blood work to rule our any vitamin deficiences, or thyroid issues. You may want to look into bio-identical hormones - but this depends on your bloddwork results. Using natural progesterone has changed my life, I was unable to sleep, night sweats, headache, exhausted. All this changed when I started using bio-identical progesterone cream. You need to go to a compounding pharmacy to have it made in the correct amount. Your doctor will need to work with you on this.:rolleyes:
