Fibromyalgia And Fatigue To The Point Of Almost Passing Out

Fibromyalgia And Fatigue To The Point Of Almost Passing Out

Does anyone else experience severe fatigue to where you almost pass out and even walking to the kitchen exhausts you? When I say exhausts, I mean that you have to sit down. I get this from everything these past few days. So hard to do anything at all. I have a history of fainting (not diagnosed) and the fatigue I get from time to time, but these past two days have been the worst ever!

I have been experiencing that lately as well!! It's as if all my energy leaves me through the floor and I cannot take a single step more. I have also had trouble waking... I explain it to my husband using the metaphor of magnets. It feels like I have magnetic strips on my eyelids... I just can't keep them from slipping closed. Love and light to you; you're not alone. ❤️

Sounds like you all could get relief from CBD products . Have You tried them ? My doctors agreed with me about no drugs .
We have a plan that if I ever do want , then I have selected naltrexone because it has no side effects . Heavily researched at Stanford . Ask your doctors for it . All they hand out are the ones that have side effects . You have to do your own research
And not just take their word as to what you add to your body ! It’s YOUR body, not theirs !

I think I know how you feel. When things get too much, I feel like if I don’t lay down right now!-even if I’m out in public. I feel like I will die if I can’t lay down, I just can’t go on.

Oh goodness, yes! Today I just drove to a shop less than a km away, picked up a few things and suddenly felt hot, dizzy and so weak! I almost phoned my DH to get on his scooter to drive me home and when I felt better I could drive him back to his scooter! It's not "tiredness", I'm not sleepy, just weak as a newborn kitten! And I get irritated because I can't do the things I want to do and every little thing is a major effort! I wish I could tell you how I solved this, but I haven't a clue. {{hugs}}

All drugs have side effects, especially if you have something like fibro that makes you extra sensitive to everything. I have other issues that we treat hoping not to annoy the fibro too much.
