chronic fatigue
hello. I believe I am suffering from chronic fatigue. I have bouts of extreme fatigue and am unable to function for days. I am very tired, achy, groggy, emotional and it usually last a few days and gradually lifts. then I am ok for a few days/weeks and it hits me again. I require a lot of sleep at night and that is hard to do because i cant stay asleep and its hard to fall asleep. when I do feel good it is a real good energy but when it hits me it is all I can do to get thru the days. any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Re: chronic fatigue
Annabelle, you are not alone! I too am having similar problems and have been trying to get some answers. I get these woosiness spells over me where I am lightheaded/dizzy like, hard to explain. Could sleep all day if allowed. I am going to a Chinese Medicine/accupunturist type dr. on thur to see if I can get help that way because I can't find answers other ways.

I take lots of vitamins/supplements that worked at first but now don't. I have lots of nausea too. I take zofran for that.

I hope you get some good responses I didn't get any with my posts :(. cj

Re: chronic fatigue
I have chronic fatigue. Sucks and caffeine does not help at all. My vitamins b12 & d levels are quite low and that makes my fatigue alot worse.

Has your doc done a full blood count on you?

Re: chronic fatigue
I had the Fatigue & Derealization for 11 yrs before Fibro kicked in. Not sure if I have both or if CFS is a mild form of Fibro...
Not sure what tests you have had done. You need your thyroid checked, vitamin D, ect. If those are good you need to be refered to a Rhumetologist. Hopefully it's something like low vitamin D because it is easily cured...
