I've been doing a ton of research to find out why I am so bone-numbingly exhausted all the time. I finally went to Dr. Sharp in Ft. Worth, TX to do bloodwork and he determined that I am slightly hypothyroid. Been on Armour Thyroid med for 2 weeks now (plus did the Asyra and LED detox and am on a TON of supplements he gave me....), but still feel the same. I've been fighting this fatigue for a long time, but lately it's become nearly impossible to function. The word "exhaustion" doesn't even cover how I feel. It's like I feel heavy....like there's literally an extra person sitting on my shoulders and carrying them around all the time wears me out physically and emotionally. In the past 2 weeks I've called in to work twice because I was just too tired to get up. I can sleep for 15 hours straight, get up to eat, then go right back to bed and sleep another 15 hours and never wake up feeling anything but tired. I'm 34 and overweight but I try to eat healthy - salads, weight watchers meals, protein vs. empty calories, etc. Would exercise but...too dang tired! I used to run 5k's, I own horses and used to barrel race, now I can't motivate myself to go ride because just going out to feed them twice a day wears me out. I'm so frustrated, feel like an old woman at 34 and all I can do is sit on the couch and watch my life go by. I literally push myself to get up and go to work every day because I have no other choice and have to pay my bills, but when I think about the future it's like looking through fog and I can literally see a breakdown coming if I have to keep pushing much longer. It scares me. My mom attempted suicide because she was too exhausted to go on with life and all she wanted to do was sleep. I don't want that to be me but I can completely understand what brought her to that point. So, my question is how do I know if this is a symptom of being hypothyroid and I need my meds adjusted or does this sound more like chronic fatigue?
