Causes Of Low Energy Levels In Women
Can restless leg syndrome cause weakness of specially calve muscles and can it contribute low energy levels for daily life activities? What is the Rx
Restless leg: Restless leg syndrome (RLS) can be associated with such symptoms, although the actual muscle weakness on exam (not just by symptoms) is unlikely. See your doctor if the diagnosis hasn't been confirmed. If it has, iron supplementation (ferrous sulfate) usually is rapidly effective (a few days) in relieving symptoms. Sometimes, but not always, there is also iron deficiency anemia.
Every evening I run out of energy (more than exhausted), w. ataxia + dysarthria, even at low activity level during day. Next morning fine. Cause?
Ataxia & dysarthria?: I am NOT making a diagnosis here, but what you're describing can be seen in myasthenia gravis. A visit to a real live doctor would be appropriate.
Possible: The size and location of a stone determine the effects it has on the patient and on the kidney. The amount of pain associated with the stone, possible associated infection, and duration of the stone episode all may contribute to causing a patient to feel washed out with poor energy levels.
Medical or psych?: If you have been checked out and don't have any underlying medical conditions that may be causing low energy, then not getting enough sleep, lack of exercise or poor diet may be contributing to low energy levels. Also, depression and/or anxiety can cause feelings of low energy. Consider seeing a psychologist or other qualified mental health professional.
Anything: Lack of energy can come from a variety of situations. Dehydration (not drinking at least 5 cups of water a day), lack of sleep/poor sleep, skipping meals, stress, sleep apnea/snoring, chronic sinus problems, caffeine withdrawal, chronic illness (such as anemia) or allergies can cause low energy.

See doctor: Make sure you are not anemic which can explain your symptom.
Try some protein: Increase the balance of you lunch. Make sure that it is not carb-laden and includes some protein.
See below: This is one of those problems where a visit to your doctor is necessary to figure out what's going on. Only after a thorough evaluation, including examination and possibly labs and other tests, can your doctor correctly diagnose you and treat you effectively.
I am 20 years old & currently 242lbs which has caused my energy to be excessively low. I would like to loose alot of weight what can I do I feel alone?
Check with Dr. First: If a person eats fewer calories than she needs to live on, her body will burn stored fuel (which is her stored fat). It always works, but is hard to do because she will feel hungry. If she exercises, but eats more calories than she uses during exercising, she will still gain weight. Avoid sugars and simple starches. No supplements are needed, as long as the remainder of the diet is balanced.
Energy utilization: When you work yourself up during the event, you are calling extra energy factors into play.Stress hormones like adrenalin cause the heart to beat faster & and increase the tone of your blood vessels (blood pressure). In some ways it is like running a race. When ts over there is a reduction of the additional energy factors, so there is a physiologic let lown.See 1 more doctor answer
Low energy: You need to see your doctor to discuss this He/she will examine you and order the appropriate tests. Additionally it might be appropriate to have a consult with a Psychiatrist or Psychologist.
I have a9 months old baby I barely sleep at night. I feel very tired throughout my day my energy levels are very low what can I do to feel better?
Nap when baby naps: Sleep deprivation can cause significant fatigue & stress. I presume you are not sleeping because the baby wakes you up. Are you nursing? Having your baby in your bed or right next to you at nite can allow you to nurse at nite with minimal disruption. When your baby takes a nap during the day take that opportunity to nap as well if possible. Your baby will sleep better soon. See comment:.
See a good doctor: There are many possible causes of chronic fatigue. It's impossible to diagnose you in this format. You need an exam & tests. Possible causes include anemia, thyroid & other hormonal imbalances, vitamin/mineral/amino acid deficiencies, all sorts of chronic infections (viral, bacterial, fungal, parasitic), environmental or food allergies, environmental toxins, sleep apnea, stress etc. Please see doc!
