Re: Need some help
I have CFS and sleep problems too. I too sleep 9-10 hours and feel dead tired in the morning. Do you have insomnia? Take sleeping pills??
Do you have a delayed sleep cycle? (i.e. you cant fall asleep until late at night,or early morning such as 3 am, and cant wake up until late morning to mid afternoon, like anywhere from 11 am to 4 pm). This can cause major fatigue. Google "delayed sleep phase" and "bright light therapy". I just got a light box to try fixing my sleep cycle.
Also, have you ever seen a sleep specialist?? You could have sleep apnea, or maybe you never fall into stage 3 or 4 sleep which is when the body repairs itself. If you dont fall into those stages, you wont ever feel rested even if you sleep 18 hours.
Sleep really affects us!! I would address this problem first.
