Looking for suggestions for chronic fatigue?
Listen to your body. Nap when you need to.
Believe it or not, exercise in water or moving around like dancing, or stretches may not take away the pain, but will make you more mobile. Also, watch what you eat. Food can cause many health problems. I decided I am getting the Gastric Bypass Surgery. My fatty liver got worse. I lost 300 pounds on my own and was almost Diabetic, but my blood sugar is normal and I am keeping it that way. Try to sleep what suits you best for your schedule and get someone to workout with you so that they can encourage you to keep to a schedule. Life is painful enough so do what you like doing and I will pray for those having this as I do. It is not easy to live with it.
Honestly for me, one was therapy. Being left with chronic pain and chronic fatigue left me with a lot of unprocessed emotions and feelings. I saw a therapist who specializes in people with chronic issues. I learned a lot and I learned some techniques to deal with stress and my emotions. Also I learned how to recognize when my stress and anxiety was rising. This helped me tremendously as stress and anxiety are a huge trigger for my fatigue.
Second: listen to your body. If you dont rest when you need to, you will trigger a bigger flare
I am glad you asked this question so I can see what others have tried that has helped. I do feel less guilty when I take a nap. That was a hard one for me. Though lately all I want to do is sleep. I do exercise and eat a lot of veggies and fruits and try to get a good intake of water but this last few months I just want to sleep it seems. I always wake up tired and sleepy.
