I am 38 year old female and have been dealing with chronic myofascial pain for almost 15 yrs now due to a work injury. Over the years I have had phases where I got fatigued like this, could stay awake during activity, my dr said it was due to my body being taxed out and once we called the pain issue, the fatigue issue got better.
Now I have been severely frustrated and have had to alter plenty of what I do and enjoy. Last 9 months I have had severe fatigue, to the point I cannot even fight to stay awake, no a matter what I do, no amount of sleep can help- as sleep doesn't feel restful. Yet I have issues sleeping through the night due to pain, but when I zonk out when I do not want to, it is for 30-60 minutes at a time. The worst part of it, is it strongly impacts my job, driving, being motivated, my glands get swollen and throat hurts and then it clears up/comes and goes randomly... it is not due to a cold. I cannot stay awake to even watch TV or read without falling asleep, even when I am engaged. I have even fallen asleep during the day in conversation with family and friends, I wake by jerking awake every time any of this happens, reading, driving, on the computer at work, watching tv...
My dr says I have chronic fatigue syndrome due to the pain but says I need a sleep study to before he does anything about it.
I think I need to see a different dr but do not know where to begin or the first thing about this. I want my life back, this is really hard to explain to family, friends and boss/coworkers...
Would appreciate any insight regarding this.
in a casserole dish with a can of cream of mushroom soup and then a can of sliced new potatoes and a can of diced potatoes....if anything I should have added more sliced potatoes as I had another can or two but things turned out well....I cooked 350degrees for 40mins when timer went off I put the thermometer into one pork chop and it said 165 which is perfect pork temp....I only ate one pork chop...
I like to enjoy going shopping for an Easter dress. I enjoy outdoor activities because the weather is warm but not too hot. I enjoy planning easter activities with my nice and filling her easter basket with all sorts of wonderful and fun treats. I like to bake with my niece easter treats to share with the family and we like to take family pictures.
