Prietty sure I have symptom of chronic fatigue... Never realized I had a problem till I got older but I remember having it as a kid as well......

I have had many blood tests with no results. I have no pain at all... I do not have sleep apnea.... Not depressed... Always feel tired... I get 1 good energy day once a month... The rest I feel like a slug no matter how much sleep I get... I can get 8 hours, 12 hours or more doesn't matter....... One thing I tried that worked for 2 months was b1 vitamin..

I felt great, like I should. But it stopped working after 2 months.. The longest I ever felt awake and energized ever.. alert, energy no fatique at all...... I want it back.. Never had that kind of energy for that long of period... I've been dealing with this for most of my life..

I am not over weight I eat well.. I work out since I'm 16 mostly dragging at the gym but I do push myself....

Hi & welcome to the forum. I sure hope you don't have CFS/ME but i have heard of those your age & younger getting this. It is hard to say if you have CFS/ME. It is an illness that must be dx'd after everything else is eliminated. Anything that could cause your symptoms must be excluded first. I hope you don't have CFS because there is no treatment right now. Are you going to a doctor at this time? You might check with a Rheumatologist, I was dx'd by one. I had a lot of success with an internist as well. Talk to your parents about your options. I hope all goes well with you & you just need vitamin D or Iron or something. Take care, hugs, Denise

You have just described me adrenal fatigue syndrome.

No matter how much you sleep, you don't feel well rested. This is a glandular issue. You probably also get brain fog, inability to focus, take longer to finish active critical thinking tasks like homework etc?, tired and prone to anxiousness, lower stress tolerance, inability to completely stay consistent long term..

if you have the above symptoms sounds like you may have adrenal fatigue and can fix in a short period of time.

The first thing your going to want to do is to see if supporting your adrenals glands will help in my opinion.

I would highly recommend taurine for adrenal support. Taurine helps adrenal fatigue and it's very cheap. It helps so many things I can't list them all but taurine helps with adrenal fatigue and it's symptoms. A few thousand mg a day may be good or 1000 a day to start.

The next two supplements would be holy basil as my favorite. This is used for adrenal fatigue and it's the best one in my opinion. Other herbs called adaptogens may be good as well but I would advise against using stimulatory herbs which can lead to a greater crash. Holy basil has a calming effect while helping adrenals which is needed in cases like adrenal fatigue syndrom.

The third you can take is several thousand miligrams of vitamin c.

Try this a week or two and see if you improve. If you improve, you can rule in adrenal fatigue.

I know these help me.

If you decide to try these things and report back, I think you will realize a dramatic change in your life.

Remember consistent is the key, and the key to this is the have a consistent daily protocol you take.

Adjust as required.
