I wanted to share some information with anyone who is experiencing severe fatigue.....have your blood checked for B12 ...
I was experiencing fatigue so severe I had trouble keeping my eyes open all the time...would fall asleep sitting up and almost while driving which was very scarey to me....my endocrinologist took 12 vials of blood from me and ran a bunch of tests...she discovered I have pernicious anemia and i'm also very anemic (low iron)....I tried the B12 shots but because of my sensitivity to many things ...I had a reaction to it....

I started B12 vitimins 1,000 milligrams every day a year ago and my level went from 174 to 717 !!! I have to stay on them for the rest of my life but it's woking so far...now I still need to get my iron levels up ...but the severe fatigue is so much better....

Hope this info can help someone ...

Take care

Yes they did check my D ...was low but have been on supplements for 8 years and that's back up to 49 now !!! My B12 was 174 and by taking vitimins it is now up to 717 ...!!! My tired feeling now is because I am severely anemic...but can't take the prescription iron they way they want me too...so now I have to increase iron rich foods...glad your feeling better also...it helps tremendously but yes I agree it doesn't take away all of that tired feeling....best of luck...
