How's your thyroid performing?  If it's under active, you may be experiencing fatigue.  Here's a simple, at-home way to check your thyroid's functioning.
Take a Q-tip and a 2% tincture of iodine.  Paint a silver dollar-size area on your thigh or belly.  If your iodine levels are normal, the yellowish stain should disappear in 24 hours.

If the stain is gone in less than 24 hours, it means you are deficient in iodine.
To get your body back up to its normal level, simply keep applying the iodine every 24 hours at different locations.  When the stain lasts 24 hours, you'll know your thyroid is back to normal.  If you're taking thyroid medication, you might be able to cut back or discontinue your medication.  However, check with your doctor first.
