feelin really tired

June 15th, 2008 at 03:07 am

Just sleeping all the time the last couple of weeks, and always feeling tired, no matter how much sleep i get at night and whether i work or not. tho i must admit when i have sleepovers at work or 11 hour shifts I do end up much more tired than usual.

I have been suffering from headaches a lot lately and its been really hard to work, look after my DD 6 yr old and run a house.
so just gonna have to listen to my body for a while and rest more wen i need to.

    Stress will wear you out. Could be that. Relaxing is the first step. good luck.

    Try finding some relaxing music, like light classical or just something soothing, to listen to once a day or whenever you can. I don't really want to call it meditating, but just lay or sit comfortably and listen to the music. It is quite relaxing. As for the headaches, I would suggest going to see a chiropractor certified in SOT (saccro occipital technique). Go to http://www.sorsi.com/ to find a provider in your area. Acupuncture could also help. I get chiropractic and acupunture treatments for asthma, allergies, and eczema because no other treatments work well. Insurance does not always pay for these types of treatments, but mine does.

    It sounds like there is a medical issue going on. One thing that can make you achey and tired all the time is depression, which contrary to popular belief doesn't always manifest as a feeling of sadness. Of course it could be anemia, a virus like mono, or a million other things- I am not pretending to hand out medical advice- just a thought. I agree with crazyliblady that you should see somebody if you can, but (really really not wanting to get into a fight or debate here) I would recommend seeing an traditional medical professional instead of a chiropractor. Chiropractors do not go to the same type of medical school that an MD does- they go to a seperate school of chiropathic medicine. Chriopractors tend to emphasize the musculosketetal system, and I personally would rather trust a regular physician to investigate mysterious symptoms because I feel they would be much more qualified to pick it up if there is a chemical irregularity or something like that involved. Best of luck and I hope you feel better!

    I will agree that there are certain things only an M.D. can do. If I had a broken bone or needed stitches, I would go to an M.D. I also completely agree that chiropractors go to a different kind of schooling. The get different training to find the actual fundamental cause of a problem, rather than just treat the symptoms. Despite popular opinion that chiropractors are strictly back-crackers and nothing else, they can actually assist a patient in becoming well when allopathic medicine cannot. A chiropractor trained in the saccro occipital technique can treat imbalances in energy anywhere they occur in the body. Other techniques that many chiropractors are trained in can spot nutritional imbalances and other problems that can cause pain, exhaustion, etc. A chiropractor spotted that I had problems with my thyroid and that I had candida. She also treated it. The same thing with happened with a bladder infection and it was gone in 3 days as opposed to about 10 days or so on antibiotics. Many people are stuck on the idea that allopathic medicine is the answer to the problems and that prescription medicines can cure everything. However, I would point to the statistics that psychiatric drugs, for example, help people only about 50% of the time. They can also cause extreme other problems like suicide and psychotic behavior. You only need to read the news to find out that doctors, hospitals, and drugs are sometimes responsible for a patrient getting sick or getting sicker.
