    So I have been extremely extremely tired the last week or so and it is not the normal tired. I wake up and I never really wake up meaning I am half asleep all day. I work out, eat healthy and am in really good shape. I had bronchitis 3 times in last 6 months and I think this might have to do with it or so I have read.

    It says that adrenal fatigue is like a nervous breakdown from stress. I have been working hard and not really enjoying the things I use to however I do get out and take my dog down to the beach and I workout.

    This fatigue is consuming me as I cannot concentrate and no matter how much I sleep or how much caffeine I have I am still tired. It says that you need to remove negative people out of your life and start doing fun things. Well, I have removed at least all negative people in my life and now I am down to 2 lol.

    Anyone ever experienced this and if so, how long did this last?

    Adrenal fatigue is fairly serious...i would find a good naturopath or find someone online who specializes in it...not an im er lol. They can be restored with natural supplement protocols.

    It really depends on the dosage/tolerance. I've heard some pretty scary stories from people overusing. I would slowly withdraw and see how my body reacts. I believe your emotional estate is leaned one way or another but despite what anyone will tell you don't fuse illegal or legal drugs and yes caffeine is a drug. PM me if you need some to chatter with.

    P.S.
    I've always admired the yacht fleets docked in SD.

    Get a blood test for your thyroid. You could have hypothyroidism.

    Have you been diagnosed or are you assuming it Adrenal Fatigue? Mudbutt is right about choking the chicken so if that applies....:)

    I had the fatigue REALLY BAD that you talk about but in my case it seems to have been my habit of staying up to 4 am at least and occasionally needing to rise early. To add insult to injury I think I developed an allergy to excess flour products and I really like pasta and muffins. Laid off those muffins and that helped a lot. I also take goji berries and practice Nei Kung. Recently got on the Tony Robbins Personal Power II program. That opens up a wellspring of energy way stronger than mere motivation.

    Doesn't everyone choke the chicken? lol. Well I wouldn't say more than normal. I too was staying up super late. Maybe that throws off the body. I mean I still get an adequate amount of sleep.

    How bad was it and how did you regain energy or did you ever?

    And I am just assuming because I read that if you have had recurring sicknesses that your body's immune is super low. Everything I have read has pointed it towards this. At first I thought mono but I don't have any of those symptoms besides the tiredness.

    I think some people choke the chicken waay more than others. When I'm with a girl or girls I really like I can go a long time without choking the chicken and good sex energizes me but thats me. When I was 17 and didn't even get to smell pussy I choked myself silly! :p

    Chronic fatigue can be caused by so many things. You could be mis interpreting adrenal fatigue. That's not helpful. Just confusing. Not enough sleep definitely can have you dragging your feet and performing at 50% or less. Can't get around getting enough sleep.

    For me it was as bad as it gets. Deep depression and laying around sleeping, eating and watching movies and Thats It. Not going out for days on end and not really caring. Its way better now! I love bran muffins and all sorts of cake related junk food but when I eliminated them from my diet and started exercising again at least 5 days a week and using my motivational programs and binaurals I'm on fire again! I feel fantastic.

    Yeah so true. I guess it could be a number of things. Last 2 years have been quite stressful on my mind and body and I have gone through some numerous changes which could all be a cause of what I am feeling.

    The weird thing is that when I work out, I have good energy. Like it is all saved up for that workout lol. I was doing the P90x and I got tons of energy once I get warmed up. I am actually in the best shape ever. Six pack, no fat, eating really healthy etc.. But after that workout, I am completely drained again.

    Scared to go to a doctor but maybe it is something I got to do. Thanks for the replies man.

    Yep, I have had it awhile and been to many doctors that would say it was this and that. Still have minor symptoms to a lesser degree. Been working out hard at the gym, eating healthy, getting plenty sleep etc. Best thing I did was finally go on Amazon and buy the kindle version of Fatigued To Fantastic. Ending up buying Adrenal Stress End, Daily Energy B Complex, Energy Revitalization System & Corvalen (D-Ribose). You MUST get a good 8 to 9 hours sleep every night! Hope that helps.

    No not at all. I eat nuts, vegies, fruits, protein organic meats. Low sugar, low wheat, low carbs pretty much. I would say I eat better than 90% of the Pop.

    Stop drinking coffee, stop watching porn (seriously!), stop staring the screen more than 6-8 hours/day max and continue with your healthy lifestyle and good sleeping pattern. In 3 months you feel like a new person. Trust me.

    sounds like it could be any number of viral or bacterial infections that produce flu-like symptoms. why jump to a single conclusion? why not just get it professionally diagnosed by a doctor?

    you might be doing all these things to reduce stress when what you really need to be doing is taking antibiotics or something. who knows.

    He actually sounds like he has CFS(chronic fatigue syndrome). Look that up its a virus man, and there is no cure for it, only thing they say that could cure it is to sleep and rest.

    I suffer from adrenal fatigue, for me it was caused by mercury poisoning but that's a different story.. I was really bad though, almost collapsing trying to walk along the street! I'm much better now. It's a huge subject but what you should do if you think you may have it is get an adrenal saliva test. They cost about $150 but it's well worth it.. You just spit into a different test tube four times a day and a lab can find out if your cortisol levels are doing what they should be..

    Another thing to look into is methylation (b12 uptake amongst other things) often the cause for what lazy doctors call chronic fatigue.

    And computers are bad for the adrenals. Really bad. Ironically i'm here because i can't work much so need other ways of earning money but i have to limit the time i'm on the computer..

    Anyway feel free to PM me if you want any more of my thoughts on anything.. I have managed to turn my own health around drastically so maybe i could be of some use!

    Just realized i cant reply to PM yet.. If you don't mind i'll answer you here.
    Well for me it happened very suddenly but it was caused by a sudden, extreme stress. It usually happens gradually for most people i think.. If there is something causing constant low level stress to your body then it will take its toll on your adrenals.. And stress can be anything that puts strain on your body, physical or psychological. Exercise is stress as is eating a food your body doesn't like and of course emotional stress is probably the biggest factor of all.

    Strange that it happened over a week though. Could be other things possibly.

    The bottom line is no-one can diagnose online. Like i said though, i really recommend getting a 24hr cortisol saliva test. (wish i was an affiliate for one haha) Then you will know if that's what's wrong. Also i don't know what it's like in the US but in the UK most doctors just laugh at you if you mention things like adrenal fatigue. I have found it's pointless going to doctors with something vague like 'feeling really tired all the time' they usually just try to give you antidepressants..

    Adrenal fatigue has many stages though, it sounds as if you are just at the beginning (if that's actually what's wrong) so it shouldnt be too hard to reverse things.

    Nutrition and vitamins/ supplements play a huge part but i would say addressing underlying emotional issues is equally, if not more important. I could go on for hours but my first step would be to get diagnosed.

    I'm happy to answer anything else but it'll have to be here until i have 15 posts.. Good luck.
