Sorry about your problems.

A quick question: What medications are you on? You'd be surprised how tired some of them can make you feel....having a low blood iron does not help matters at all. For anyone with multiple health issues and on many medications, identifying causes of the various symptoms can become very difficult. I am on the same boat, though older than you. Sometimes I get so tired I feel like a walking zombie. I fall asleep the minute I sit down.

P.S. The on-going insomnia issues could be from taking one or more of your meds. Mine was caused by the short-acting alpha/beta blocker, which I had to take several times a day (including bedtime). There are many drugs with insomnia as a side effect.


Thanks for responding Flowergirl. I am on synthroid and toprol (which is a beta blocker I think) once in the morning. I take wellbutrin for depression, was on zoloft for years, but finally maxed out the dose and still wasn't getting any better, so my doc switched me. I take a multi-vitamin daily. I take a baby aspirin daily. I take 20 mg of ambien at night. I think that's it. This fatigue is so debilitating. It's hard to stay awake at work sometimes!
