Tired & Moody- symptoms or unrelated?

In addition to the pain I've had for over a year now, I've also had mood swings, depression, and am constantly tired. However, from what I've read online so far, these symptoms are never mentioned, which makes me wonder if they are NOT connected to my diagnosis of Adenomyosis.

Can anyone with real life experience weigh in on this? I was really hoping that after surgery I'll feel better all together.... and now I'm starting to worry that the other symptoms might not be related after all.




P.S. I haven't had a chance to pick up any good books yet, so forgive me if this is something that should be common knowledge. I have only had random websites from Google searches for information so far.

Re: Tired & Moody- symptoms or unrelated?

I am in no way an expert, but I think those symptoms are probably more related to pre-op nerves. I know that since I got my date earlier this week I have felt just like you described. I am a wreck. I have been tired for years, but this week it has been insane. I feel like I could just sleep until my surgery. I am also very weepy and cranky. I really yelled at my daughter today at Wal-Mart. Then I felt awful and almost cried. Again, this is just a guess based on my experience. Good luck and hugs.

This sounds just like me. I was diagnosed with anemia and a extemelly low B12 level for which I am currently taking B12 shots. I have been depressed, angry and tired too. I am also hoping the sugery will help with all that to.

Re: Tired & Moody- symptoms or unrelated?

I feel just like all of you - counting down my days to sugery and I am very anxious, tired and nervous. I also can cry at any moment. I just want to feel normal again - how long will it take after sugery? I am trying to stay positive but it is hard...

Re: Tired & Moody- symptoms or unrelated?

Yep i am just the same been tired for months now. Had low iron count as well and that made me feel really drained but its slowly come back up after eating more greens and taking iron tablets.

As for mood swing lol my poor hubby gets it all and i feel so bad when i have a go for no reason. Lets just hope it does all go away after surgery as i only have 8 days to go.

Re: Tired & Moody- symptoms or unrelated?

The tiredness can definately be related to the adenomyosis because that condition can make you anemic. I started taking an iron supplement several months before surgery and it helped. I was moody because of the anxiety leading up to the surgery.

I'm 3 1/2 weeks post op and I can still get tired but it's no longer because of anemia, it's because I'm still recovering from the surgery. I'm actually doing real well and I have no regrets about having the surgery! Life is good.

Re: Tired & Moody- symptoms or unrelated?

I really think it can be related. I have a fibroid and the same symptoms. I did read online somewhere about fatigue and moodiness. Things going on down there interrupt normal body activity and hormones and blood flow, etc. so they must affect things. I go to my surgeon tomorrow to set a date hopefully! I am looking forward to feeling more normal in the future!

Re: Tired & Moody- symptoms or unrelated?

I had Adenomyosis, I had my surgery on Jan 20th. I'm still recovering from the surgery, but I can tell you I already feel better. The constant pain I had is gone, I'm not nearly as moody as I was, probably because the constant cramping is gone. I'm sore from the surgery still and I won't ovulate again for a few more weeks, but I will be sure to come share my experience when I'm all healed up. My OB said at least 80% of his patients like me with severe PMS or PMDD noticed major improvments after they recovered from surgery, but also said he can't guarantee anything. I don't know if this is related or not, but since the surgery I've had fewer headaches. I go in tomorrow for my 2 week check up.

Re: Tired & Moody- symptoms or unrelated?

Thanks for all the replies.

The fatigue and moodiness in my case has been going on for months and months, so I don't think it's related to surgery nerves. (I actually don't feel nervous about the surgery itself at all-- I have had five surgeries in the last six years, so I think I'm kind of used to that part.)

I have been falling asleep over the last week by 9pm. It's crazy!! I am really hoping this improves post-op. I'll be sure and talk to my doc if it doesn't so she can rule out other issues.

Have you had your doctor check your iron levels? That is what my doctor did and that is how we found out I was anemic. Getting on iron supplements made a huge difference.
