Lack of energy

I have AMN, age 63, and have a lack of energy. Leg weakness may contribute. Anyone else with AMN experiencing my tired feeling? Thanks, Mark My wife thinks I'm a bum because I don't help around the house, but my nurse wife won't bother to research the illness. I don't care anymore. I'll be gone soon enough.

I battle fatigue every day. They used to say it was depression but now know better. Also to contribute now, I am on many meds.

I'm only 41 and have tremendous fatigue. Have the Doc check your testosterone levels. Mine was low so now I get a shot every two weeks. Makes a huge difference.

Yes, testosterone level makes a huge difference, and if Addison's is there having your hydrocortisone and fludrocortisone levels right is a big help for everything. I battle the constant fatigue as well, I'm 47, my brother died at 49 from this and he was always tired as well, but at the time we thought it was from the pain meds he was on. I also contribute alot of my fatigue to not getting uninterrupted sleep at night, I'm hoping this might get better once things at home are a little more calmed down and things to do are done..... Charlie, ask your health care provider about a topical gel testosterone. I use Androgel daily and haven't had to have the regular shots for quite a few years now. I just rub the gel on my shoulders in the morning and that's all I need to do.
