I am on my 2nd month of Lupron. I am taking norethindrone as my add back. I had the most disgusting night sweats, like changing the sheets every day, changing clothes in the middle of the night every night, my husband couldn't sleep in the bed it was so wet. The docfor put me on Prozac because some antidepressants are also good for night sweats and not flashes. The Prozac made me act very strange, so we switched to Zoloft. Mg question is,… read more
Using MCT Oil every morning in my coffee now and it has helped tremendously with fatigue also forcing myself to exercise has helped.
When i was diagnosed with stage 4 endo 5 years ago i was told i had to go on a treatment to shrink it all. I refused any conventional treatment plan as id read a lot about the havoc these drugs create in the body. After many sleepless nights reading up how to eliminate the damage endo causes i decided to go gluten free and dairy free overnight. I now turn to nutrition to manage any health issue. My periods are a doddle now. No pain but still have a couple of days where i bleed heavily. I take a natural peppermint IBS relief tablet for the bloating. I feel much more energetic but do get quite sleepy at night. Not that exhausted feeling though just a nice sleepy feeling.
I would recommend juicing to top up on any deficiency you may have. Drink plenty of water. Take a good quality vitamin supplement too.
I hope this is helpful and that you find some relief.
For gluten-free, dairy-free food ideas i would recommend looking up ‘Deliciously Ella’.
Good luck on your journey to recovery.
I suffer from fatigue as well! The only thing I’ve noticed that has made an improvement is walking a mile everyday!
I also suffered from fatigue. I would advise you to get your vitamin d levels checked. I got diagnosed with a vitamin d decency cuz it was extremely low. I now take d3 supplements. It has helped some what with my fatigue. But I still have days where I am just so tired.
PS. I have Never been lazy in my entire life. I was always traveling, working multiple jobs, raising my children and taking them all to sports practices and gamesome , volunteering with a humane society etc... now I feel like I’m a prisoner in my own body and the pain and fatigue has me confined to my house!
@A MyEndometriosisTeam Member, I also have been having memory problems and it’s hard to think clearly bc of the fog from fatigue. It’s like I’m using the only energy I have just to function and my brain takes the brunt of it.
