fatigue

Amanda - June 2

How can I change the fact that I am always fatigue? I know that exercise is supposed to help but I just don't have the energy to get up and make myself do it.

I have the same issue. The overwhelming fatigue. Strangely my activity level doesn't seem to affect my pain level. I currently work 5 full 8 hour days a week and waitress for 16 to 30 hours a week as well. I am in the same pain and fatigue level as I was when I was unemployed and sleeping all day.

The unfortunate thing is that I believe my depression meds etc have caused weight gain. I haven't changed my eating habits but have gained quite a lot since starting my meds.
If someone has suggestions for overcoming the fatigue I would be interested too. You have my empathy and have been added to my prayers.

If i want to avoid fatigue i go to bed by nine i have sleeping pilsl to help me acomplish that because if not i can be up tell 4 am ive tried everything else! Sometimes doing meditation helps me . I havn't taken a course but i focus on breathing it dosnt' allways work but its good for those times i dont want to take pills. Even when i do sleep without pills though i have weird and frightning dreams that wake me up and a husband that snores its tough but you just need to find the thing that works for you, do you have insomnia? Maybe you should get refered to a sleep analyst? Also i used to work graveyards becuase i couldnt stand the thought of putting my kids in daycare becuase my hwole pay would go to daycare and it would ahve been pointless.. i had to quit that several times becasue after 8 hours i had to sleep 16 and still coudlnt get up...and i had been doing nights for years without problems untill last year. I excersised and ate so healthy for a whole year and nothing changed untill i started goign to bed at a decent time...which is very hard. But i also have started to lose wieght dont know if thats related

Fatigue is my overwhelming problem too! I can sleep 20 hours a day if I let myself. But I notice if I things that help me relax a little more and follow a routine...I can minimize some of my fatigue. I like yoga/meditation...it's one of the few things I find that relaxes me.
But I have yet to find a solution to get rid of my exhaustion

I FORCE myself to exercise 5 days a week and sleep 8 hours a night (no more or less). I eat low fat and low sugar and try to stay away from negative people. The pain and fatigue is under control as long as I can keep myself under control.
If I get a virus and can not work out for a few days I am sooo tired. I know it works.

I changed my diet, my sleep habits, and my mattress. I'm finally feeling a more energetic. I've been doing an anti-candida (yeast) diet and taking some anti-candida herbs after reading a number of doctor's web pages that say candida can definitely contribute to FMS. It has helped immensely. My symptoms are now very mild. But I still have to go to bed on time and get my 8-9 hours. My new sleep number bed helps, too. But I think the diet and the candida cleanse were the main things. Before them, It could take me hours to fall asleep and if I got woken up in the middle of the night, which is almost garanteed with three kids under 5 and husband that snores, I was up for another 2-4 hours. But after a few weeks of diet and herbs. I feel almost normal again. There's a questionaire to help determine if candida could be affecting your health. It's available on a number of different websites. The only one I recall is www.thecandidayeastanswer.com. Hope that helps.

Hi i have the same problem. I can hardly drag myself about most days and the thought of doing exercise sends me cold.I have just sought the help of a counsellor.We set tasksfor me to do even on the days that I can't face doing anything.It may be a short walk to the post box or just hanging doing a bit of yoga.Counselling is expensive and I have had to limit myself to only a few sessions but keeping a diary of the tasks and knowing that I have to show her that I have done them helps me to make sure that I do.Perhaps you could enlist the help of a friend to help you work out some small achievable exercise tasks and report back to them.

Have you looked at the fibrofix.com website? It has some great ideas that seem to be helping me.
