To someone who has never experienced MSFatigue, it's useless trying to explain it. There is NO comparison and they will always think you are exagerating..

Ever been too tired to think? I simply couldnt form the words in my own head to be able to think, let alone speak. Just tell DH, "must lay" and he gets it. After a rest break he comes in and says "got your words?" Too tired to think is an awful feeling.

I am just now feeling a little closer to what my "normal" is after a full day out on Thursday. It's taken me two full days just to get back to tired.....not exhausted. It's such a good feeling to know there's nowhere I have to be and to just be able to stay at home.

I have hit the wall. I am so tired and resting does not seem to be helping. Fro some reason, sleep has been eluding me lately. I have four more days to go (three classes of final exams to give and grade) and two dinners to attend. Then I will be done. I don't know if this is the MS or the low iron/B12 counts or a combination, but I have not been this fatigued since the first year when I was dx.

If you all would just listen to me-
1000mcg's B12 soon as you get up, B100 complex after lunch, Iron if you need it, Testosterone if you're low. And that only works if YOU do the work pushing yourself more every week till you build endurance.
DIET- Hopefully all know fatty foods such as potato chips ROB energy & has been proven. PROTEIN is a must I don't care how you get it.
If you buy prepackaged food, lowest salt highest protein works for me. I never look at calories.

If all above fails, buy a pusle/ox meter online for $35 like my neuro's office has as do I, and see if your oxygen's low. Adderall is precription speed if needed.

Barb, I was a teacher too, and I know how those final days of a quarter can pile up. You have my sympathy. Trying to rest--maybe you need to increase the dimness of your room, decrease TV and radio in your home for now....get stimulus out of your house for now.

I had an episode of debilitating fatigue yesterday.

Today is garbage/recycling day and I usually take mine to the curb the night before.

Well, there was no way I was going to be able to do this last night. I knew better than to even try.

My legs felt like I had a cinder block tied to each ankle. Just walking from my bedroom to the front of the house was exhausting. My feet felt like I was walking on tennis balls.

So I just went to bed.....and figured the garbage would just have to wait till next week. It's not like I have alot anyway.

Got up this morning and felt 100% better. Knew I'd be able to take the garbage and recycling out to the curb. Took it slow but it got done before the trucks arrived.

Sometimes a day makes all the difference.

It's so FRUSTRATING to me that sometimes I think, "I'm probably overdoing it today and I'll be toast tomorrow"...but other times, you just hit the wall. No warning, no reason, random times of day. Just BAM. And you just sit there slack-jawed because you're too tired to shut your mouth, and if somebody asks you what you're thinking about, you can honestly answer "nothing".
