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.

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.

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?

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:.

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!

Low energy: You might want to see your PCP for some blood work including blood count and thyroid panel. .. Anemia and low thyroid levels are two rather combo possibilities!
