Hi, I am happy to help you today. There are many options for treatment of fibroids. They are typically associated wih heavy, painful cycles. They are properly diagnosed with ultrasound. The treatment options include:

1. Hormonal options: birth control pills, depo-provera shots, or a shot called Lupron
2. Non-hormonal options: over-the-counter anti-inflammatory drugs, or similar prescription drugs
3. Surgery: removal of the fibroid, removal of the uterus, or a procedure called embolization (where the fibroid is essentially killed by cutting of its blood supply)

Painkillers is not a good long-term option. The decreased energy, depression and headaches might be due to anemia (low blood counts) if you are experiencing heavy periods. I hope this answers your questions!
