Thread: What can I take for energy? I seem to have none.

  1. #1

    What can I take for energy? I seem to have none.

    I eat a lot of fruit. I also cook a lot of stir-fry foods but I seem to have lost my energy level.
    What do some of yall do for energy? I take the super B complex and a complete multivitamin.

    Hi Maryo,

    I had the shots in both of my destroyed shoulders about 2 months ago. I got relief within 12 hours. It was such a relief to be able to sleep again. I could have stayed under the covers for 2 weeks. However, the pain is slowly creeping back in the worst one. I need to hold out for 2 more months as they do not want to give them more than 3 times a year. Too many can lead to shoulder muscle/tendon weakness. For me, it was the right decision. The only meds left for me are opiods, and I have real problems with them.

    Regarding the shots, there is no way to predict if they will work or how long they will last. The only way to find out is to try them.

    I am currently using a power assist wheelchair and exercising my shoulders to try to keep going as long as I can. Unfortunately, push-ups and transfers are the worst thing for them, but that is what we need to do. I will be glad to respond to any specific questions if I can.

    Is there any history in the family with thyroid issues?

    Have you had levels checked just for ruling out sake?

    meds - most of the meds prescribed for SCI related stuff suck the energy out of you. Less meds, more exercise if you can do it will do wonders for your energy level.

    Do have your iron levels checked. Mine were low, and I was very tired.
