Sorry to hear you're feeling like this. ADPKD can really wear you down. Up and down days are quite common amongst this community.

It might be worth getting tested for anaemia though. When I had this, a few iron injections gave me more energy.

Hope this helps.


Yup. Today is a bad day. Tomorrow will be better.

I don't know if its the same thing but I have been dealing with extreme fatigue, at least that is what my doctor are calling it. I spend lots of days in bed, most days I can barely move around, simple things like taking a shower or making my bed takes all my energy i cannot even hold down a job! Very frustrating. My husband is very supportive and my fourteen year old can manage.

Endocrinologist, and every other specialist and test haven't been able find out whats the root cause. I'm incapacitated sometimes two sometimes a week, one month, just most days it really sucks to live like this.
