    Why does my husband get fatigued so severely?

    My husband has sore muscles, headaches, tiredness and feelings of nausea. If he has a game of golf it will take him a day to get over it and if he does anything more strenuous it will be days. We have tried completely cutting out sugar and alcohol and processed foods with no change and we don't know where to go from here.

    I recommend that he starts recording his food intake as a diet diary to pin point what foods affect him and causes symptoms.

    How is his sleep? Stress levels? All these impact on energy levels. Being nutrient deficient in protein can also affect energy levels. Make sure to have protein with each meal (e.g. fish/chicken/beef/eggs). Explore a whole food diet, 5 different coloured fruit and vegetables a day - less sugar and processed foods.  Nutritional supplementation / Herbal tonics might be required when necessary.

    Also get his Iron status checked out through the GP, to rule out iron deficiency that can be causing his fatigue.

    It is really important to know what is the cause of the tiredness and muscle soreness, and this needs to be investigated first.Then you can  target your treatment to the problem. I would encourage you to see your GP to get the help and diagnosis you require who will help you get the best treatment.
