Hi... What do you do to help perk up from the endo fatigue?
I'm all tired out today, and it happens every single day. Gosh. I think this is fatigue. There must be something I can do to perk up again.
I have stage IV endometriosis. I've healed from my diagnostic lap now (had it 5 weeks ago), awaiting MRI scan & possible surgery. I have a "remedy pack" with Mirena & cerazette to slow the endo, amitryptaline & ibuprofen & paracetamol for pain relief, and vitamins & supplements for overall wellness (peppermint, probiotics, ginger, turmeric & black pepper, vitamin with omegas & vitamin D and calcium). This approach is helping. Before I started, I visited A&E for pain, so this is a real improvement. I am sore, but I can get by for now.
It's pretty shocking how quickly I get tired/fatigued compared to before my last visits to A&E, before the lap.
I'm not drinking coffee anymore because it was aggravating my heartburn. I kind of suspect the heartburn was from years of coffee and ibuprofen on an empty stomach (I have mended my ways!). I miss the energy lift of having a coffee (although I knew it was temporary).
So... My energy is hiding. I'm in bed (again), futilely trying to recharge.
I suspect there is no "quick fix". Maybe the answer is 6 months of slow yoga, every second day.
What do you do to keep your energy up?
