fibroids/ being worn out,tired

I was just curious...can fibroids make you feel really tired,
My blood levels are fine so it's not anemia, I was thinking just the mere weight of them would cause this exaustion? and fatigue?

fibroids/ being worn out,tired

I felt tired all the time with mine. But I think it was just like being pregnant. Had 4# fibroid with 4 month size uterus. I think body senses that and acts accordingly. Now I am still tired from working way to much and still healing. Hope this helps...

Yes, yes, yes, fibroids can make you feel really tired. I wasn't anemic either. But I felt like I was a slug. It's hard to explain but I know exactly what you mean.

I'm almost 5 months post-op and when I get tired now, from doing too much while still recovering, it's a different kind of tired. I know what's causing it and if I rest up, I get a kind of cheerful energy back. And even when I'm tired, I feel good, if that makes sense.

I wasn't anemic either, but noticed over the past couple of years that as my fibroids got bigger and bigger, I started getting fatigued more easily. The other women that I work with who also had hysterectomies also felt tired from their fibroids. The constant "pressure" and bloating, increased need to urinate, increased cramping etc was such an energy drainer!

I had a SAH the 1st of March and am hoping my tiredness will go away. Prior to surgery I was tired all the time with no anemia. I am really hoping that once I heal the exhaustion will go away.

fibroids/ being worn out,tired

prior to finding mine i had no pain and thought i had no symptoms, so my surgery was a real surprise cause i had no idea anything was really wrong, just abnormal periods,BUT now i know that i was exhausted and thought it was just me becoming lazy, i was putting a dent in the couch cushion and the house was more than i could handle... i also am tired now after the surgery and also can now see that it is a different kind of tired...

Very interesting that you asked this question... I was wondering 2.
Prior to my hysterectomy TVH,BSO, HRT 2 weeks ago... I was having trouble w/ energy. In fact... that's all I was having trouble w/. No menstral problems at all. I was tired, didn't feel like doing my hiking (I hike 10Ks) then in Dec started getting sick. In Jan went to the Dr for a sinus infection... and came out w/ a scheduled hysterectomy. LOL. For the 6 weeks of waiting until my hytsterectomy I had 2 sinus infections, the flu for 2 weeks, bronchitus, throat infection, and an ear fungus. I was horrible... but now after the surgery I FEEL GREAT!!!! I can't believe the difference in energy. I'm still recovering... but it's not a "sick" feeling any more.... not even really tired.
YOU'LL DO GREAT... and you'll feel 100x better! Good luck.

Wow, I didnt realize that the fibroids are the reason I am always tired until I read this post. These darn octuplets are wearing me out. Three more weeks and they'll be history!
