Hello everyone, I'm here to find out if anyone is having a problem similar to mine. I'm tired all of the time; I've just been having trouble staying awake, alert, and focused during my day to day activities. I found a lot of useful infomation, such as test/questionnaires, on the two sites I've listed below; but I'm looking for more if anyone has anything to offer.

I've also been reading up on a wake promoting agent called Provigil. And I was wondering if anyone out there has any comments or experiences with it. If anyone wants to research the pill any further, I've provided a link below.

I guess I'm just wondering if this sounds like anyone's chronic fatigue syndrome symptoms.

 

Thank You.

Hi sleepiness. Most of us with cfs are tired all the time no matter how much we rest or sleep. What has your doctor said about your symptoms? There have been a few people who have tried Provigil and there have been mixed review. SOme people have had pretty good success with it and it gave other peole some pretty bad side effects. It is worth talking to your doctor about though. Let me know if you have any other questions. Take care
