Does anyone know of any suppliments, or anything that can help with fatigue. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I'm assuming that this is

    I'm assuming that this is chemo-related. When I was wiped out by the Oxaliplatin, I just took naps during the day (I usually worked at home after an infusion). Coffee can help keep me awake but I assumed that my body was telling me to rest.

    Nothing worked for me

    Fatigue was definitely one of the (many) worst side effects for me, during treatment. I felt like a balloon that had been popped. If I were doing something when the fatigue hit, I would either make it fast to the couch, or end up on my knees, crawling. It was truly a devestating experience. I remember touching my face once, because I thought it had collapsed. That is how bad I felt. 

    Now, I'm not saying there isn't anything out there for you, just that I didn't find anything that helped me.

    Exercise

    It may seem counterintuitive, but exercise seemed to help me with fatigue.  Of course, my answer to any issue is exercise. . .

    I remember I was printing

    I remember I was printing something in the office. The copier is 6 yards away. I couldn't make it when I had a fatigue attack....

    Nope

    If you are going through treatment then nothing that I've tried helped.  You just get whipped from everything and only relaxing and resting when needed.  I've tried the supplements the doctor allowed but it wasn't much help as they didn't want it to interfer with treatment.  Just rest when needed.

    Fatigue

    Fatigue is a term used to describe an overall feeling of tiredness or lack of energy. It isn’t the same as simply feeling drowsy or sleepy. When you’re fatigued, you have no motivation and no energy. Being sleepy may be a symptom of fatigue, but it’s not the same thing.

    Fatigue is a common symptom of many medical conditions, which range in severity from mild to serious. It’s also a natural result of some lifestyle choices, such as lack of exercise or poor diet.

    Not by half

    Welcome to the forum, Rani. 

    for me, 'tired & lack of energy' doesn't describe the feeling by half. Actually, I don't think there are any words to describe it, when it is at its worst. 

    It was definitely NOT a highlight of treatment - is there a highlight????
