I'm not pregnant and don't have an iron deficiency (just had bloods taken). My eyes are burning because I'm so tired. I drink at least a litre of water a day, eat quite healthily and get about 7 or 8 hours of sleep a night. And yet... I feel shattered all of the time . I'm putting on weight, I'm trying to be more active - I've been jogging and swimming, but because I'm so tired I'm demotivated and miserable. Argghh!! Any ideas?
No bad colds - I tend to get a bit of whatever's going round, but bounce back after a day. It is getting me down Nabster, it's making me feel really lazy. We're trying for a baby at the minute too, and sex is just the last thing on my mind at the minute. Thanks Marmaduke - I'll have to go back to the docs and see what he reckons.
That sounds the same as the symptoms my DD2 (9), and she was diagnosed as having an under active thyroid. Took 10 months of dragging her to my gp for him to finally refer her to somebody. Hope you find out what it is pretty soon.
