I’ve not been flu-like sick in about 3 years. Well, not sick at all in 3 yrs unless you count a 12 hour bout with what must have been food poisoning. Lately I’m having a strange illness… Every muscle is exhausted – and I’ve done nothing… I’m tired when I wake up, when I go to exercise, when I go to bed… etc.
I’m tired. As if from the flu, but, along with some soreness in the muscles of my legs, these are the only symptoms.
I have no headache, no fever, no dizziness, no upset stomach, my pulse is slow – 50-60 bpm which is average for me. My appetite is good. I’m able to force myself to go do my regular exercise but where I could do an hour of really intense biking – I can only do 30 minutes now before I start to feel really bad.
I thought – low iron. I downed 30 One-a-Day vitamins over 2 weeks and felt a little better – but the bottle emptied and I’ve not refilled it – thinking it’s something more than that.
Anyone getting this same thing?
What about mono? That’s something I’ve not looked up yet.
Chikungunra? I have no joint pain though – and no fever or headache so I ruled that out – but, maybe it doesn’t always accompany the extreme fatigue?
Any other ideas?
