Why am I tired, sleepy, depressed, not feeling well?
Posted by thecanvasgrey on March 14, 2008
Forgive me, I’ve been holding this piece for longer than I should have and I know it. I’ve been gently nudged here and there and I’ve been lax. I PRAY this reaches the person/people it is meant for because I am well over a two months in posting it.
First I’m going to tell you I am NOT >>>>NOT>>>>NOT a doctor or nurse.
I AM telling from my own experience and it is so others can recognize and ASK their doctor to check for this possibility for them.
I’m not going into a lot of boring details but I do want others to be aware of things I was not. It took me several years of prescription drugs NOT working and one simple test to find out what was REALLY wrong with me. I don’t understand how my doctors (several) could not have given me a simple test rather than shuffling me through ALL the depression drugs. I do believe they were trying to help me, I do believe that they get so much pushed at them and in their desire to help they look to drugs maybe a little too often.
Many symptoms are the same as depression.
Consumer Reports (November 2007) Requip is for restless legs. But did you know that low iron can cause this???? caffeine??? alcohol???? tobacco??? cold remedies??? even pregnancy??
