For past 8-9 months I'm feeling that my life is running at extremely low energy levels. I no longer get up 'feeling 'recharged' in the morning. Somehow I lug myself down to the walking path where I do some routine walk and warm-up exercises. the energylessness is so pervasive that i'm not able to muster-up the courage to hit the neighbourhood gym. I've observed whenever I work-out a little bit extra, I feel a ****r kind of dull mindedness the whole day. In the office, i dot feel like taking initiatives, despite wanting to do so. Even if I know that there is some work to be done, I know how to do it and i want to do it but still i'm not able to make a move. By the time i reach home, the energy levels are completely bottomed out and i just watch TV for a couple of hours or read papers, have dinner. I really want to live my life at much higher potential than this, please help ASAP.
some case facts:
-My family physician got serum B12 level checked 3 months back, it was "below 150", he prescribed methyl cobalamine injections. so far i've taken 20 of them with no evident improvement. I'm yet to recheck the B12 level.
-My height is 5' 11", broad body frame and the weight ranges between 78-79kg. I've gained 2-3 kg in last one year.
-Job is mostly on desk (when in town) and involves travelling 5 to 10 days a month. there are no late hours and most of the times its not stressful.
-I'm a 27 years old, married, having normal, satisfactory sexual life. i'm monogamous and have no history of any STD.
-I'm a pure veggie, eat home cooked food (when in town) and am not fond of junk food.
-I dont smoke and rarely drink (4-5 times a year)
If any more information needed please tell.
thanks in advance
