Hello all. I have Fibro. Chronic pain and chronic fatigue. Over the past few months i have noticed that my fatigue has gotten worse. I will wake up after sleeping a good six to eight hour, depending on if i wake up due to body aches and have to take a pain pill. Once the pain medication takes effect, i may stay awake for three or four hours but due to my fatigue i stay in bed. Eventually i get so tired that i fall asleep for another six to eight hours. I feel like im sleeping my life away.
Now i have thought that it might be my medication but i don't feel drowsy after i take my meds. Also, if i have to go out like to the store, doctors visit, or church, I'm exhausted when i get home and sleep for at least five hours. I'll wake up due to my body aches, take a pill and then sleep for another six to eight hours.
I just feel like my energy is slowly being sapped from me. Is the typical for others? I'd go bsck to my doctor, but she said after trying a lot of different med that did not help me, that she didn't know what to do and suggested a nutritionist which i am talking the suggested supplements but feel no different.
i have read that many of you can't sleep which I'm assuming is due to pain. But I'm on Hydrocodone which is the only meds that take away my body aches. So is sleeping so much typical?
