Suggest remedy for extreme fatigue and heavy arms and legs

Hello I am a 31 year old female. I weigh 243 LBS. I am so exausted all the time. I struggle to do little tasks. I was almost 300 lbs 2 years ago after pregnancy. I have stopped loosing weight. Been the same now for almost a year. I have very little energy. I want to di more but my legs and arms feel so heavy i can hardly stand it. Had my thyroid checked I have a goiter but my levels were normal. Good vital signs. Fast heart rate though sometimes it races and pounds for no reason. The doctor said all my blood work is normal, but i feel so tired. I sleep well, i used to be more physically active but now i just cant. My arms and legs feel like concrete. What could it be?

Hello,

I think you need to check also ferritin levels. Also, get checked for possible arthritis. The fasting heart rate may be related to stress and anxiety and it can be a reason for feeling fatigued. Taking vitamin B complex and magnesium supplements can be helpful.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
