I had started drinking gator aid for the electrolytes and that helped so I drink it first thing ( well after my coffee ) in the morning and it has helped me to feel better during that day. I also drink alot of water. ( alot )

He also told me to start taking ginseng I plan on getting it the next time I get out hopefully tomorrow.

Has anyone taken Ginseng? Did it work for fatigue? I think it is suppose to work for memory too. I hope so LOL.

So just trying to get through all of this. Keep fighting everyone!!!

Prayers to all

That's a good tip about the Gatorade!  I've been drinking it a little this week and it makes me THIRSTY!  Weird, right!?  But I feel better this week than last week so YAY!  Please keep us posted on the Ginsing!  I hope that works, it seems like a great idea!!

I do drink Gatorade and it really seems to help me with my energy level and it is really good for you too.

My doc saw that potassium and magnesium was low about a year ago and with the supplements memory and fatigue are much better.  Arimidex and another med I take leach these so....

I am glad that you are feeling better. You have a very good and accessible doctor, it is a blessing that you find him.

I take potassium and magnesium supplements too.  I am not sure my memory is better (lol) but I do know I feel better taking the drug.  My potassium level often goes below the low side of the range and so I do need it.  Magnesium, I once drop and went right back as I did feel better.


Best to you,

Been reading all your posts and glad your getting a handle on this problem.  I've heard about Ginseng but never paid much attention to it.


Water is always good, washes out the toxics I believe.


Best to you,

I'm glad something as simple as electrolites are making a difference for you.  If you get tired of Gatoraid, Smart Water also has electrolites.  I'm curious to hear about the ginsing when you try it.
