i’ve been really really struggling with fatigue lately. i’ve missed a lot simply because i’ve been asleep. yesterday i slept for 22 hours. Any ideas on how to stay awake when fatigue is hitting you like a truck?
Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS)
I totally feel this!! I have a Ritalin prescription and that helps me get out of bed and make it easier for me to do other things that keep me awake (light exercise like walks and yoga; also just being able to get out of bed to brew some caffeinated tea)- I’m on a low dose though (5mg a day and I take a few days off every two weeks) since stimulants can worsen other symptoms of POTS, 5mg with breaks has been a good sweet spot for me
