I'm not in a great deal of pain, I can still walk long distances and dance. I can't lift and hold onto heavy things. Am on Pregablin for pain relief.
I have read that if fatigue is your main symptom, then you probably have CFS/ME. However some of symptoms overlap.
Does anyone else have more fatigue than pain?
Yes, i would say fatigue and brain fog are my main current symptoms. I do get pain at times, it can last month's, but it doesnt seem as bad as what many describe here. But while i can walk fairly well if i over do it, my legs get very weak, I've wondered if i was going to be able to keep going, each step starts to be an exyreme effort.
Hi I agree the fatigue cripples me, I hate it. I only have to run the vacuum cleaner around the living room some days and I am wiped out, I sit down with a cuppa and two hours later I will wake up, stiff and sore all over because I am sitting on the sofa and my cup of tea is cold beside me. Within a couple hours or this I am snuggled up with my blanket fast asleep. Then some nights I will go to bed and can't fall asleep straight away so I read until about 2am then sleep until about 10am, then another night I don't sleep at all. I have totally forgotten what a sleep pattern is.
Having said that I do struggle with pain and stiffness and some days I just want to cry.
Love to all of my fellow fibro fighters.
I am like that too. Never can plan my next day cause of my sleeping patterns, on a sleep apnea machine that doesn't help either
Me too, tired all the time, I have Lupus too so I am even more tired. Had to stop working because of the fatigue. Was in the hospitality job
