Hello Flowergirl thanks for responding to my post-I actually do have Hashimotos Thyroid I have had it for about 20 years right now I am taking 100mcg synthroid daily. However this exhausted feeling is very similar to thyroid tired as well. My aunt is also Hashimoto Thyroid and she was getting so tired, one day after work she was putting her running shoes on to force herself to go for her walk- she woke up an hour later on the carpet-one shoe on and one shoe in her hand! That's a tired thyroid!! I can actually fall asleep listening to my husband talk-wake up later and my lights on, my glasses are on and hubby is sleeping in his reclyner by then! I am going to mention to my Dr when I go back to recheck my thyroid it has bee a while as my blood sugars. Oh yippee

Hi Scout, it's good to vent so vent all you want. In Canada I can by my B12 injectable from behind the drug store counter and I give it to myself in my hip. Sounds awful however to me it is better than in the thigh like I was orignally shown at least in my hip I can't see whats going on and it doesn't really bother me. Can you buy it behind the counter in the US? I will continue the B12 because a lot of the meds I take affect B12 and it may have been high on the test but I had only just give myself 2500ml a week before so it would still be in there.

I just came off of 5 days of erythromycin for a sinus/chest infection however I think it is a viral because I still have sinus and a cough-oh I do get so tired of being a slug due to my health. I know I am in good health compared to other people that's for sure- I guess I just miss the energy and enthusiasm I no longer have. There are a few meds I take that deplete B12 so I will continue with it; I'm not sure what muscle fisculation means but if it means spasms- not really-I just have constant muscle pain mostly on my upper chest, back, shoulders, head, arms and hips-it will usually affect one side only and it is a roaming pain-like it could be my neck today and my hip tomorrow. I did go for nerve conduction tests to see if it could be neurapathy from diabetes but it only showed a minor amount in my legs to my feet. When I went to the rheumy specialist he poked at some of the "tender point's" and I think if you have 18 or more tender points they class you as fibromyalgia. Look up Fibromyalgia and see if you can find a diagram of the body that shows the tender points for fibromyalgia-it can limit you very much if you go into a flare like sometimes up the back of my head will be so tight and sore I can't turn my head and it hurts constantly till it goes somewhere else. I was given 2 different prescriptions that I didn't like because they made me so tired and also made my head more foggy than it already is. So I take Celebrex with noraflex or I'll take Tylenol 3's alternatively because I don't like taking NSAIDS all the time. If I am not sore I don't take anything, where as the meds for fibro need to be taken daily up to 3 times a day-I don't like that.

You are cranky Scout because you don't feel well and you can't even get to see your Dr. Have you had your thyroid checked? It is so common in woman our age-men do get it but more often it's women who suffer all the silly ailments forever and the men just get it over with quick. Most men don't go to DR's I know my husband doesn't. He is so patient with me though I have to say that, he can tell when I am not well. I early ritired from my longterm government service 3 years ago to lok after my sick mom besides I was so done in with the job it was time. Now I think I would like to go to work, but if I think too much I have to go lie down!

As for the lack of good Dr's and awful medical system it's scary! I seem to get a different Dr everytime I go I don't know who my Dr is.
