I hope it’s OK to post in this part of the forum, as I don’t yet have a diagnosis of anything (apart from Meniere’s disease, which was undiagnosed again as I didn’t recover my hearing!).
Fatigue is a troubling part of my symptoms, and I’m trying to figure out if the other symptoms are causing the fatigue, or if the fatigue is causing the other symptoms.
One thing I have noticed, is that I “hit the wall” (metaphorically) much earlier in the evening if I’ve sat down and watched TV than if I’m sitting drinking wine and chatting. Does anybody here find TV watching to be exhausting? Of course, it might just be the alcohol keeping me awake, but it’s supposed to have the opposite effect. I could just self-medicate I suppose, but that might cause more problems than it cures!
I am waiting for a neck MRI and a follow-up neuro appointment, but as I know these things take time I’m trying to figure out what I can do to make myself better in the mean time. If I can determine whether the fatigue is cause or effect, then I’ll know which angle to attack it from!
Thanks in advance
