  1. The link to the article in #2 is not working–it keeps saying page not found.

    • Donna Gregory/FedUpwithFatigue.com says

      It looks like they changed the link. I’m going to update it now. Sorry for the inconvenience.

  2. Jackie Kendro says

    The link for 2 said article not found and the link for 3 says you have to be a healthcare professional. 🙄 (Although I do feel like a healthcare expert at times. By the way I also ended up with a lyme diagnosis this year after having fm for years. I just assume I have both. Have you ever written any articles on supplements to increase ATP to increase mitochondrial energy? I’m about to experiment with a few supplements to try to do this. I take the d-ribose after your article and it does help!! You don’t have to approve this to post. Just wanted to let you know I couldn’t access two of the articles. Thanks for all you do!! 😘💕💞

      Hey Jackie, I updated link #2 – it looks like the website had slightly tweaked it’s URL, but it should be right now. I’m not sure why you’re getting the error message on link #3. It’s loading ok for me. I haven’t done anything on ATP other than the d-ribose post. Which supplements will you be trying out? I’m interested to hear about your experiences.

      • Jackie Kendro says

        CoQ 10 and NADH. There are a couple of others I’ve read up on, but wanted to add slowly.

        • Donna Gregory/FedUpwithFatigue.com says

          I’ve been taking CoQ10 for years. I’ve read that it’s best to take the ubiquinol form. It is more expensive than the regular CoQ10. I’ve taken both regular and the ubiquinol form off and on for years and haven’t noticed a difference in symptoms one way or another. I keep taking it b/c it’s supposed to be good for me but not sure if it’s actually helping or not. 🙂

          I have not heard of NADH. I will have to research that one! Let me know if you see any improvements w/ these. Always looking for solutions!
