Hello Raiden
 
I have CFS and no i don`t yawn allday but  my eyelids are very heavy and i could go to sleep as soon as i lay down, i never feel like slept at night even when it was 8 hours or 10 hours.
 
I work outside of home but it take everything out of me and once i am home nothing else gets done, i waite till the week-end to do it and then Sunday i rest all day so i can start all over. not much fun but it pays the bills.
 
have a good day.

Raiden

I wish it was a mild case but it really is not, i go just so long and them the Dr. has to take me off of work for about 5 weeks and for four of those weeks i sleep or sit and stare with no interest in anything, as it is now i am in bed by 7;00p.m. and am lucky to make it that long. I want to work as long as i can and it is getting very hard.

The pain from the Fibro is one thing but the fatigue is a whole other story, you do miss alot of things in life as you just cannot keep up with anything, you don`t want to drive at night you know you can`t go to your grandchildrens games as they are at night etc. your life is all around your disease.

Have you been dx with this also or are you searching to find out if you do?

many thanks for your reply..actually I am trying to self diagnose myself..as there's no standard test for dx-ing CFS. I know that CFS can vary from person to person..however I am just trying to figure out what the tiredness is like and what is tiredness (coz I am confused now!!!) I need a bit of help...

For the last 5 and half months, I have been suffering from this problem...I can't keep my eyes open..although I dont feel tired...I shop..go on to do my job, study, cook on a regular basis...never fainted...but I have mildest muscle pain...sleep/wake cycle...and now I have started to believe that I am progressive candidate for CFS.....but post exertional malaise just doesn't happen to me...I can do all the things that I could do previously but I feel sleepy up until 7 pm and keep yawning (even when I sleep for 8 hours in the night)..but things get better afterwards...and I can go to bed 11pm to sleep the whole night till 7am by just waking up once..but again I start yawning...

does any of my symptoms look similar? have you got any visible symptoms....how did your CFS kicked off and how it has changed over time? what job do you do? plz share with me...and like I said yours one looks like a mild CFS because atleast you are working ...people with moderatv cfs are usually bedridden on weekends...and they usually do not work outside...and they usually do not do full time job...best of luck ad waiting for your reply...

:-)  Hello Raiden,
 
I will try to get to so of your questions, you are right we are all affected at different levels of fatigue from 0-10 say most days i am 7-8 that is if i am on a job that i can sit at work, if i am on a standing job then when the day is over i will be 9-10 and i will get home and either  i will go to bed and sleep for 2 hour or just sit and read e-mails and then go to bed at 7:00p.m.
 
The work I do is plastic parts, your computer fronts, padprint the name on the front of your computers, phones etc. I like my work and they work with me so if i need to work on something not so taxing i can let them know.
 
Now some of the symptoms i have are cognitice problems  like saying the wrong words when my mind says the right word it comes out wrong, anxiety, i got migraines that they can not stop had them for 10 months and they finally found a mix of pills to calm them but they are only masked if i miss a pill i in in trouble.
 
I feel very fatigued after just a little exertion and i will get shortness of breath and that is why you maybe yawning all the time, you may be in need of air.  I sleep good as i take pills to keep me out but  as soon as i am up about ahalf hour i want to go back to bed but, know that i can`t, i keep going because i know there are alot of people that would give an arm and a leg to beable to just get up in the morning
 
Your muscle pain is part of it so is morning stiffness, low grade fever swollen painful lymph nodes in neck, under arms. you best check this with your Doctor as he can  make sure it is nothing else, also  it could be the start of Fibromyalgia and i have and have been fighting that flare all summer. Well i better close as a storm is closing in and i need to get off of th computer hope this helps. yeah

many many thanks for your reply again..this kindaa reply gives a very good answer to my question...I have checked with the doctor to see whether there is any swollen lymph node or not..and he found nothing...so far I do not have cognitive dificulties...only big issue is yawning and feeling sleepy throughout the day which get better afterwards...but I thank you again for your reply and I might come up with some more questions..I hope you won't mind answering them....good night...and have a good day...:)

I am going through the same thing and my doctor thinks it is sleep apnea. I am going for a study. My ex-husband and aunt have sleep apnea and they had the same symptoms. Have had blood drawn, test ran, searched the internet. Sleep apnea is usually misdiagnosed. Bring this up to your doctor. I sleep through this night and have a hard time getting up. When I do I am still so tired, I feel like I never slept. I also have body aches like I slept on a bad mattress. I have trouble concentrating to which is from lack of GOOD sleep. It's worth checking out. My thyroid is fine and I even constidered fibermyalgia.
