I sleep ok at night, and not bad in the morning, but in the afternoon I just seem to toss and turn.

I perfected power snoozing in the loo at work, although sometimes I would fall off the toilet. It would be far better to let employees power snooze at their desk.

Lack of vitamin B12 can compound tiredness. Have you had your blood-work checked recently?

Every three months since 2007 as part of my diabetes care, which also includes regular eye checks and twice a year with a kidney doc.
BP is fine except occasionally first thing in the morning. Cholesterol good. Blood sugar tests not above 6.5 for 5 years or more Kidney function took a dip late last year (ultra sound coming soon)...apparently it goes up and down the opposite way to others.

Fatigue seems to go hand in hand with kidney issues. As well as plenty other things, of course.

Yes, just had a consult with "Dr. Internet" as my new doc calls it, alongside kidney issues/diabetes it lists as some potential causes:

Anemia
Apnea
Thyroid problems
Caffeine overload
Poor blood circulation
Dehydration
Insufficient exercise.

and a new one to me, Food allergies. Heaven forbid that Dark Ale pie could be implicated!

With your regular blood checks I would think that most of the above would be on the radar, although the exercise one is interesting, as in "little and often" can - allegedly - help more than a 30 minute walk for instance.

I've now been sidetracked trying to find a way of understanding my blood-work results to a better degree than doc saying "good, improving, needs more attention" etc etc.

Last week she told me to eat more eggs and also ice-cream. But not together...

Not being a driver everything has always been on foot or bike supplemented by bus/taxi for something further afield or ferrying the groceries back home. So I've always had plenty of exercise. But now I can't do a 10 minute walk without needing to stop and, preferably, sit.

No, that's bacon and ice cream isn't it?

Aches down the sides of thighs but mostly heavy legs below the knees.

Maybe I could borrow Douglas Bader's legs.

The "thug" in the thread title is reference to remarks first made in another thread, and pertains to the somewhat aggressive tactics employed by some medical professionals encountered when I was living in CH.

Now, have you got that, or do I need to come over and break your legs?
