    In 2010, WebMD’s women’s health readers showed that they were tired of being tired. No longer willing to accept being told that fatigue is a “normal part of aging," they are seeking solutions at their doctors’ offices, researching it online, and looking to “super foods” to boost their metabolism and energy levels. They also researched information about thyroid conditions - fatigue can be a sign of hypothyroidism.

    "The single biggest complaint I hear from my patients, day in and day out, is fatigue," cardiologist Nieca Goldberg, MD, director of the NYU Medical Center Women's Heart Program and associate professor at the NYU School of Medicine, told WebMD this year.

    Bedbugs, health care reform, fatigue…which stories made the most impact in 2010?

    Year in Health Overview

    Although occasionally fatigue may be a sign of a serious illness, experts say most often it's caused by a minor problem, with a relatively easy fix.

    One of those fixes may be improving your diet. More and more research has validated the so-called super foods - like berries, nuts, yogurt, and salmon - for overall health.

    Although fatigue was a hot topic among women readers, the most popular overall was something a little more personal: your period. Women searched for information ranging from heavy or painful periods to missed periods. Rounding out the list were stories about sex and relationships.

    Here’s the list of the 5 most popular topics among WebMD’s women readers, along with related content.

    1. Period Problems

    2. Fatigue

    3. Super Foods

    4. Thyroid Problems

    5. Sex and Relationships
