Anyone else struggle with fatigue? Mine is to the point where I sleep for entire days. The day after Christmas I slept from 1 am until 9 am on the 27th. I woke up a couple times to eat and go to the bathroom but besides that I’m as asleep. I often struggle with falling asleep, but then I’ll sleep for a very long time. I’ve changed routines, taken sleep meds, and a boatload of other stuff. Sometimes when I’m awake I feel so weak, like I’m just going to fall over any moment.

      Side effects from meds can for sure make you tired. Depression & Diabetic meds and meds like gabapentin.

      Ugh I'm struggling today too, I think one of my meds is making it even worse too.

      Probably my #1 symptom out of everything that's wrong with me. All I want to do is sleep. I'm tired 24/7 but I have my 80 yr old mom and others to take care of. Can't wait for the big sleep sometimes 😥

      One of my biggest symptoms. I don't really have an answer other than to say fatigue is horrible and I feel you

      I had this one time. I fell asleep while driving...on the freeway. (Luckily, I didn't get an accident.) Turned out I was extremely iron deficient. I was so low that I would have definitely gone comtose in the next few days to weeks. Anyways, get your iron and B12 levels checked. I had to get iron infusions for two weeks (as an outpatient, thankfully). This may not be your problem, but if it is, it can do some damage.

      Exactly! It doesn’t matter how long I sleep, whenever someone asks how I am, I say tired. I have talked with a sleep specialist but it was the height of the pandemic last year so it was telehealth and they just had me track my sleep and caffeine intake for a month and then never got back to me :/

      Have you possible seen a sleep specialist ever? It is something I really would like to do myself too - just a thought not sure 🤔 , but other than that I feel like I am always tired - even after sleeping a whole night does matter how many hrs I get in. I can sleep 3 hrs or I can sleeo 9 and still feel like I’m too fatigued too tired to even get out of bed. Sorry to hear you are struggling 💕
