I've posted about faitigue before but feel I need to again.
Just on my 6th day of a long bout of extreme fatigue, this is the longest I've had, usually last around 3-4 days then I'm back to normal. This bout has been the worst, I must of slept 18/24 hours for the first 3 days, not been able to function properly, just having a bath sent me into a state of overwhelming tiredness. Now on my sixth day and getting better although the tiredness still there I know it's coming to the end.
I can always feel these bouts coming on and do try to ease it by resting but it seems it is determine to take over my whole body and will only go when it's ready.
It is so debilitating, I feel useless, the only other symptom I ever get is a very slight sore throat, this doesn't help when others see you with no symptoms as they think it's just laziness and often say get up off your ass and you will feel better, if only eh.
I know once my body has recovered from this bout i will be sprightly and fine again, but for how long this time? The bouts seem to be getting more frequent, used to be few times a year now it seems every 2-3 months. This bout has really taken its toll and I just want back to normal.
I'm 43, eat reasonably well, am not overweight, I do gentle exercise, not sure what else I can do. I do work shifts early late and night shifts which I don't think helps and I'm hoping to change this.
I'm on hydroxy 1500mg daily and 75mg aspirin for ET.
Sorry for long post just wanted to give you a feel for what's happening to me at the mo and hopefully get some replies as to others experiences.
