So fatigued I feel sick?

I’ve struggled with fatigue for years, it was what prompted me to get checked out and eventually diagnosed with MS in the first place, but lately (these last two weeks) it’s been absolutely unbearable. It’s a struggle to get out of bed each day and if it weren’t for my job I’d probably just stay in bed.

Is this normal? Am I going through a flare up? It’s odd tho because I usually experience other symptoms (pins and needles, muscle pain) but haven’t had any of that, maybe I’m just too tired to notice, but it’s really just been this horrible fatigue.

I got a sleep tracker app and I usually sleep for about 9 hours very soundly so I don’t get it.

it has been very humid recently and my body just wants to shut up shop.

maybe that is what is causing your extreme fatigue.

btw, 9 hours? i’m ever so jealous. 3 hours for me.

Cripes fatigue here today too. Yesterday was mint, had a really good day, today is yak so got comfy clothes on, taken pain killers, got books and tv ready. Going to sit and watch the birds with some snoozes inbetween probably.

I’m another one with extreme fatigue, sounds a daft thing to say but I am so tired I can’t even sleep.

Hi Horsemad,

I know exactly what you mean and I think this gets classed as ‘over tired’ which means we’re in a lose, lose situation :frowning:

I struggle with fatigue too and it’s been awful with the heat and humidity that we have been having lately and some of my other MS symptoms have flared up too including the pins & needles in my hands and feet which have also swollen up and are giving me terrible cramp.

Don’t get me wrong, all this sunshine has been lovely it’s just the actual heat & humidity (which is so sickly) that I’m not enjoying and as for actual sleep I’m lucky if I get 2-3 hours straight sleep at night the rest is spent tossing and turning, in and out of sleep and just being too exhausted to actually get up. So 9 hours is amazing I can’t remember when that last happened :-/

Thanks all-- probably what it is. I don’t have a/c and it’s been so humid latley. I’m lucky to be able to sleep for so long but I never feel rested. I notice zero difference between getting 3 hours or 9 hours I feel the exact same regardless, maybe I’ll bring it up with my doctor. I fell asleep in Ikea the other day, lucky my sister was there to wake me up lol
