I get a lethargic feeling when I have a urinary tract infection. Most people have pain when they tinkle but not me! I feel numb, tingly and SUPER tired. Like I can't even hardly hold my arms up.
I just found out my iron is low, though. It's probably been low for a year or more! But just recently my GI saw something on some bloodwork that made him decide he wanted me to go back for a test of my iron. Well, I started taking a prescription Iron supplement a week ago and that lethargic feeling I'd been having has gone away almost completely. My bowels are feeling crazier I think BECAUSE of the iron, but before I was taking the iron I was having periods of time that I could concentrate on anything except closing my eyes.
I'm sure others will come by with dozens of other reasons why you could be feeling so tired!
Glad to hear you've been symptom-free lately...at least THAT'S a good thing!
