This is odd. Does it belong here or on the Fibromyalgia forum. Anyway. I awaken several times during the night. i generally take a muscle relaxer and try for more sleep. I arise with the daylight and exercise and feed two dogs, feed three cats, get Dad going with coffee and toast, vacuum, sweep, dust, cook, put up christmas tree, make lunch and then I collapse. I mean I get really sore, all through-out my body from doing so much. Around 2 PM, I'm toast.. Once my neds start to work i'm up and at it.  from 100% to 0% in aboutIs this a rapid mood swing within about seven hours, or is it my sore fatiqued body saying, enough?

Tyno,

It sounds like the fibro to me. (You can leave it here -- I think it's a valid question.) Unless it's your mood that swings and not just your body. Do you feel like you go from being happy and full of energy to being sour and anti-social and depressed?

Good question Sarafena. I don't know happy, haven't for quite some time but once I get moving in the morning, (meds kick in), I'm able to get  quite a bit done. Then as I said, around 2 PM I collapse. I can't even speak, it's to much effort. All I can do is curl up under an electric blanket and stare out the window. I usually doze off. Then when I awaken, I'm very sad. I don't want to get up and face the world, but I force myself, so as to be somewhat useful.And, there is a fair ammt. of social withdrawl, I don't want to have to bother with anyone. I know that sounds terrible, but despite whopping doses of anti-depressants, I just feel, well apathetic. I'm pretty sure it's the fibro also, I get a tightening feeling in my throat and my legs feel like cement sneakers.

Yeah, it sounds like a lovely combo of each. A double whammy -- aren't you lucky. You still might talk to your psych, though, about your AD. Maybe adjusting it would help some.
