I do not know what I'd do if I was not on vacation from work this summer- I do not know how I'd last the day at work.
So anyone know what works for extreme fatigue?
For me, it was time. I had debilitating fatigue pretty much everyday. I couldn't work for months. I wasn't sleepy, couldn't nap, just felt tired. I go to bed tired, wake up tired, and had a hard time getting up in the morning and would walk like an old lady. I had jelly weak legs along with internal shakes, burning feet/arms, heart palps, weird headaches, dizziness all along with this fatigue. I started feeling better after I was put on Paxil CR. I also started to take all the peri-zappers recommended in the "Before the Change" book (except no progesterone cream). I can understand how you are feeling and it is a differet kind of fatigue...just like the anxiety felt different to me too. Are you taking any meds? vitamins?
Hang in there...think positive, you will feel better!
