People ask me why I take kratom, what's my reasons, am I in pain? No, I'm not in any pain and I don't like the thought of saying I'm just taking it recreationally. The first month or so I had a feeling I get from pain meds, burst of energy and so forth. I guess what I'm really looking for is a adderal type feeling. I used to be so motivated at work, fast as hell, excelled in everything I do. I remember the store manager talking to me with the district manager telling him I was the top five hardest worker in the store. It made me feel so good having so much energy. Idk if it's sleep apnea, tetestorone, low iron. Idk what has happened l it doesn't matter if I get a hours sleep or 12 hours sleep like I did last night. I'm always so tired, unmotivated, and I'm standing their at work just pissed off wondering how I'm going to make it through the day. I have a sleep study on the 11th and I've talking to him about this and asked him about adderal(never taken, just heard good things) and I think he may consider it. He told me after the sleep study though. So I'm hoping I get it and start feeling better again.
Also heard of something called modafinil. Would that help me better then adderal?

I suffer that same fatigue. Always have, tho. The causes vary over time.

I also get SERIOUSLY exhausted the day or three after using any dab of extract.

Diet can cause fatigue. Even constipation can put me to sleep! I get SO TIRED if I’ve not been regular in the colon. That fatigue is confusing and often I’ve misunderstood the symptoms to mean I’m hungry.

I’m anemic also, but I take Vitron-C for that. The C in it makes the iron absorb well so I don’t mind supplementing.

I hope you’ve got a lab order to have your blood checked.

I sympathize SO MUCH. Your dr sounds more open minded than most. Mine would have a cow if I suggested maybe Adderall. LOL

Hang in there!

Yes it is readable.
Have you been under allot of extra stress lately?
I know I have had bouts of what you are explaining lately. Even said to my boss that I have been feeling just exhausted lately and he had to remind me that I have been under allot of stress lately because my GF got diagnosed with cancer and it's been quite an adjustment. I am pretty sure it is a large part of the issue for me.

I guess the saying, "a thought is the heaviest thing a man can carry" has quite a bit of truth to it.
Hope you get everything figured out. :)

No stress really. Is everything normal on the readings?

I am not knowledgeable in that field, I think Bomalley might be able to give input on those numbers.

I have Mom here (retired RN). If BoMalley doesn’t make it by mid morning tomorrow, Mom here would LOVE to snoop at your private medical records. If the edit button works (its been on and off since we switched servers), I suggest you remove them from the website as soon as the forum nurse, BoMalley or the forum backup nurse (lol, this IS a great forum) has finished interpreting it all.
I’m paranoid that way. Not because it’s an actual threat to your privacy, since none of us can read it! Haha!

There's nothing to person on them, it looks like everything is almost normal, but it d9esnt look like it's a full blood test. I'd figure there would be more results then this.

Everything is normal. You can see the values for each test and then the normal range is listed. All values fall within the normal range.

All it proves is that you are not sick. It does not prove that you are completely normal - but then you already know that because you are tired all the time.

Fatigue is largely a nutritional issue and often can be influenced by hormone balance as well.

I do not see thyroid tests on there. Any reason WHY the doc did not do thyroid tests? That should be the first choice when the main complaint is fatigue.

Have you been assessed for depression?
