    Default Fatigue

    I am newly diagnosed and was wondering if anyone has any ideas on combatting fatigue? I think the fatigue is hurting my job performance, I am a casino dealer and I cannot concentrate which is not a good thing when dealing with large amounts of cash. I never feel awake or peppy no mater how much sleep I get I am exhausted most of the time and cannot motivate myself one bit and my house is a disaster. If you have any ideas please help!
    Thanks

    Tough one.....I can't seem to find anything that helps too much, but I think acupuncture has helped a bit, possibly iron supplements if you are anemic, and B vitamins.

    My doctor suggested Erythropoetin (stimulates bone marrow to produce more red blood cells) because my iron level keeps dropping, but not sure that insurance will cover it and it's really expensive. One drug I am taking (Cellcept) seems to make those iron levels drop in addition to just SLE possibly making them low. I also just try to rest as much as possible.

    Good luck!
