Hi, I'm 47 with a rare bone disease that's forced me to quit working and undergo multiple ortho surgeries. since 2011 I've had 3 ankle surgeries, 2 knee surgeries (including a knee replacement), a gi bleed from the nsaids, a dvt, ... I struggle with chronic exhaustion. does anyone else have this problem or have any tips or suggestions?

      I'm in a similar boat with a rare heart problem, on top of several other things. It's truly exhausting, these days my SOUL feels tired. my advice: sleep when you're tired, eat when you're hungry, and do whatever you can to feel any semblance of physical comfort. buy a lot of pillows. keep your favorite drink stocked in the kitchen. splurge a little on something forp a hobby. when the big picture sucks ass with no hope of improvement any time soon, the little things are that much more important for you to focus on

      I am so sorry. Gosh. I have a lot going on myself too. I am finally going to Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville Florida on Monday June 6th for an overhaul from a team of Dr's. They then send all their recommendations back to my Dr's telling them what they would and wouldn't do different. You may look into something like this.
