It could be something or nothing. If you really do not feel "right" I would definitley follow up. If you do not feel satisfied and still have a feeling something is not right get a second opinion. The least you will get is peace of mind.

Not suggesting you have this at all (or anything this serious) but my Mum died of stage 4 ovarian cancer. It is called the silent killer because the symptoms are so vague. Mums first symptoms were tiredness and a bit of weight gain, occasionally she felt a bit bloated. She even tried a gluten free diet thinking it might be an intolerance thing.

Are you getting away from the property? No matter how happy we think we are, if you can look back and realize that you have not done anything else for the past two weeks - it is time to get out for at least a day. Family time off the farm, dinner out, girls night, quiz night - meaning a social outing that involves other people.

Nothing daft about it. Lack of quality 'time out' will definitely effect health as adversely as any of the other suggestions in this thread :)

While iron levels in women can be a factor in tiredness, don't overlook the possibility of type 2 diabetes, especially with a weight gain, or if you have family who have this condition. Overly high sugar levels can also cause tiredness. Close relatives with diabetes will give you a one in three chance of also developing it, and if you had gestational diabetes at all, it has a good chance of returning as type two.

The other possibility is simply a winter malaise that is actually brought on by low vitamin D. In this case get out in the sun each day, so you can soak up some sunlight. There are reports of kids having low vitamin D levels which is leading to weaker bones and therefore more breakages, purely because we have pushed the melanoma message pretty hard for the last decade or so.

And lastly, if you are eating leafy green vegetables such as silverbeet, that iron is hard for the body to use, without the addition of vitamin C. Eat an orange as part of your dinner, to help the uptake of the iron.

Did you know, that what you thought I said, was not what I meant :S

High blood pressure - Often regulated by your kidneys and from my experience this can be lowered in minutes by visceral manipulation (of kidneys, liver, gall bladder by a practiced osteopath), though the effect will be shortlived if the underlying cause isn't addressed (e.g. dietary intolerances) as more toxins will accumulate otherwise.

Arrythmia/joint pain - Can be worsened or caused by the inflammatory markers generated by allergic responses.

Yes, I'm an O Neg. Visceral manipulations sounds like something one of those roman soothsayers used to do, lol. I'll see if I can find an osteo who knows about it. A good excuse to go looking as I'm not very happy with my chiropractor.

I guess it wouldn't kill me to try the diet restrictions for a week and see jhow I feel. If I start feeling fantastic I may have to make the changes permanent.

Tomorrow is the day I will stop procrastinating.

I've got some experience with 'Eat right for your type'.

We cut out cabbage and avocado and wheat. Made a HUGE difference. Arthritis is gone gone gone, tiredness - what's that? Cabbage can make you VERY tired if your thyroid is quite low but not low enough to require treatment.

And one VERY important tidbit: If you want your body to absorb the iron from the meat or iron tablets you are eating/taking you MUST NOT eat anything that contains calcium or dairy products for 6 hours before and 2 hours afterwards. This includes the milk in your tea.

We also did an anti-candida diet 9 years ago and that was the start of getting back our health. The 'Eat right for your type' was only fine tuning.

A friend of mine cured his Type 2 diabetes with eating right for his type.

I am on Fluox, have been for the past 5 yrs.
As I'm suffering from exhaustion depression ( haven't had a night's sleep in the 11 yrs) my hubby 's first comment was, now that we've all moved into our own proper separate bedrooms and I'm sleeping through the night, that my body might be catching up. Along the lines " sleep begets sleep".
But I'm not sure it should feel like that.

Hey Pisa,
Do you know that Fluox causes Insomnia?? Have you had issues with your sleep since starting this Med, or is this just a recent symptom again?

Along with your iron levels, think you should also get your hormone levels tested just incase - at least that will indiciate if you are pre or peri menopausal because that could have something to do with your fatigue etc.

(You will have to ask you Doctor to do this, as most don't do Hormone levels as part of routine FBC's).

Good luck with your appointment :)

This is really amazing about your friend curing his Diabetes - that is awesome :D [:0]

Where can you find all the information you need for the 'Eat right for your type'?? Does it tell you what foods are needed for each type - or do you have to go to a certain 'diet' place to have bloods taken that then works out what your 'type' is??

I have a very rare cancer, and am needing to try anything that might help me have a longer life (its terminal [:(!] ) - so i am very interested in this!!

Cheers :)

lillies for me-sorry to hear of your illness. Have you heard about Don Tolmans beliefs. My step dad has totally cured his cancer following his book and another friend they met along his journey who has a serious form of cancer is also beating it. She is feeling and looking great- without chemo which she rejected. Unless you have a open minded specialist at the hospital drs do not seem to support alternatives- even though they told this lady he has only 5 in a 1000 people who have not succumbed.They are poor odds from a so called specialist. Dn Tolmans beliefs are linked to foods and is a strict "diet" to beat the cancer but I have not read the books properly yet. My step dad is amazing to speak to about this and seems to work for people who are open to trying something different. It cannot hurt- and Don Tolman apparently says he has never lost a person who has committed to his way of beating cancer. Apparently the lady my stepdad has been supporting is in contact with Don Tolman and he emails and gives extra advice and support to her- and it is not a money making scheme. Yes they had to buy the books but thats all. Anyway just thought I would throw it out there.

Pisa, please don't take the offered diet advice until after you've talked with your doctor, and fully assessed the cause.
I'm sure everyone all means well, but it's all heresay as to what the problem is, and what will help you.
(for example) If you fly ahead on all the ways to increase your iron, and it turns out you have high iron levels, you'll be doing more damage.
Wait for the blood tests, get the results, talk to someone who has the education and history and experience to diagnose what really is wrong, and provide a known and proven solution.
Then if allowed, you can eat all the silverbeet you like, cos I can't stand the stuff.

I see you shiver in anticip......................................................................................ation

thanks for all the advice, i'll print this out and will go through the list with my doctor and make a decision when the results are back.
at the moment, like right now, i'm cuddling baby goat! this is heaven. and i'm not feeling tired at all. ;)

1 hubby, 2 kids, 1 cat, 1 dog, 2 swallows and I've lost count how many offsprings with even more grandkids, 5 bunny girls, 5 bunny boys, 12 chickens (rooster, pullets, chicks and more about to hatch hopefully) and 4 goats with two of them expecting any day! (24.10.14)
But who's counting [;)]...

Simkin, thanks for that feedback on the Type diet. Good to have 'real' testimonials :-)

McGillicuddy, thanks for sharing that. So sorry to hear about your mum. I also lost my mother to cancer, but it was breast cancer which had metastasised (sp?). Your story of how vague the symptoms of ovarian cancer can be reminds me that having regular pap smears is a necessary evil :-(

lillies, so sorry to hear you are fighting cancer as well. I will PM you about the Type diet info I have.

pisa, good luck with the doctor.

Tomorrow is the day I will stop procrastinating.

I'm already being treated for anaemia, but this thread has given me lots of questions to ask my doctor when I next see her! Hope you are on the way to getting some answers soon, pisa!
