I'm not being facetious, I'm genuinely curious to try to understand my (potential/not yet officially diagnosed) condition.
How would you define fatigue? Is it a kind of tiredness (e.g. sleepy tired, wanting naps); is it exhaustion (like that heavy tiredness that you'd expect in normal life after a really active spell); or is it just lack of stamina and having no energy to do everyday stuff?
I'm definitely in the third category. I'm rarely tired in the day (not that I'm averse to a little nap, but not out of necessity ), it's just that I'm like a car with the petrol gauge on red. There's a very limited supply of energy and unless I'm extremely careful, it gets used up very easily and I crash. But even then, it's not exhaustion as such, it's just that I start to feel very ill - shaky, woozy and terrible nausea.
Just interested to know how other people experience or perceive fatigue. My GP (who is very thorough and still investigating) summarises me as having 'fatigue', I'm just not sure it's that simple.
Any thoughts to share?
