:wave: Well, you sound like me several years ago. I now know I have Fibromyalgia. I was exhausted all the time even though I seemed to be getting good sleep. My doctor prescribed Flexeril, (Cyclobenzaprine) for me at night to help me sleep. I take it and can be up several hours, but when I go to sleep (easily) I sleep hard and wake up refreshed. It has made a huge difference in my life! All those with Fibro. can trace it back to a serious medical event, like you. See a Rheumatologist. I also get regular Massage Therapy. I was so impressed with what it did for me, I became a MT 2 1/2 yrs. ago. We store lactic acid in the muscles and it has to get out. Try detoxing, exercise as much as possible (this is not always easy, but is so good for us) or it is likely you will get worse. Find some good vitamins to take and drink tons of water.
