Does anyone just randomly feel tired sometimes? I've been feeling exhausted all week and have barely gotten anything done. I've been going to bed earlier and taken naps like I normally do, sometimes even longer than usual. I had my blood checked a couple weeks ago and it was fine, and I don't think I've lost much blood since then.
I just wish I could have more energy and be productive.

Yes, I'm pretty much tired allll the time. There are times when all of a sudden I will get a strange kind of all over weakness that spreads over me. I have to sit down and rest a minute or two because it feels like my limbs turn to jello. I don't know what the heck that is. But do you take a multi-vitamin? Did you have your blood check for your B12 levels?

I tire much easier than I did before UC, and I have a general lack of energy all the time, even when I'm in remission and not anemic. Unfortunately, it's one of the symptoms of UC. Your body uses a lot of energy trying to heal itself.

I'm tired all the time. I try to combat it by working out. I'm not sure if it is the meds or UC in general. Probably, for me, a combo of both.

redface I know what you all are speaking of...the 'I haven't really done much but I am exhausted' feeling. I am working my second job now but I can't wait to go to bed! I take mutivitamins and B complex but maybe need more stringent bloodwork done.

Hmm, I don't know if I had my B12 levels checked last time. All they told was that my labs looked normal. But I think I'm just going to have my labs redone sometime this week just to be safe. No, I don't take multivitamins. I probably should though, shouldn't I?
I'm feeling slightly better, but that's because I slept 12 hours last night. yeah It was nice.

I have been much more tired after getting UC, even when I am in remission.
Dx:  UC Proctitis 2006
Meds:  None so far. Garlic works to ease flares. My GI laughed when I told him and said it was just coincidence.
Started Meds:  Apr 9 08 500mg 5ASA (salofalk) to ease flare.
Diet:  Regular fresh garlic, Biobest yogurt daily, Omega 3 supplements, very limited junk food, carbs and processed food, low fat diet.  Lots of fresh fruit and veggies (limited potatoes). 
Added: tumeric and probiotics.
