    Fatigue

    Hai

    Does anyone else feel their muscles and bones being driven over by some heavy load trucks?
    I feel that way everyday when i wake up.I used to wake up at 5.30 and now its as late as 9 am and it makes me feel horrible.
    The doc said its the climate but i just cant blame it on the climate and go on so was wondern if anyone has any remedies for this kinda fatigue?
    I tried drinking loads of water but to wake up in the morn is turning tuf.
    I wonder how the elderly in hk manage to wake up and take walks in this climate.
    Do let me know what i shud do.i am taking a balanced vegeterian diet and exercising daily save the morning walks...

    desperate engee

    if you believe in chinese herb tea, you can get a 'hui-sup-cha' that gets rid of the dampness inside the body.

    I'm no expert in chinese medicine but a lot of people believe dampness in the body can make you feel tired, just like deep fried food will give you 'heat'.

    You can get the pre-packed 'hui-sup-cha' herbs (that's how it is pronounced in cantonese) at any chinese medicine stores. You'd need to rinse them a few times with tap water. To make the tea, first you have to bring it to a boil with a large pot of water (perhaps 1 to 2 L depending on how big the pack is but you can ask the store keeper for instruction), then turn to medium heat and boil for another 30 min. I usually add a block of brown sugar to neutralize the bitterness.

    As to how often you should drink depends on your body. you can ask the chinese doc for recommendations.
