  Do some of the eazyest chores you do or even the hardest ones, tend to make you so tired out that you need bed rest and if you really over do it dose it take you days to recover from it.
I know it dose that to me so I was just seeing if it dose so to others here.

I am in the process of being in diagnosis lala land. My primary care doctor gave me a diagnosis of CFIDS but the rheumatologist thinks there is more going on. I can tell you that my fatigue is beyond what I ever imagined Chronic Fatigue Syndrome to be (I was probably pretty naiive.) I am unable to work at this time. I can do a few things in the morning but then I need to be down for a nap by 12 or 1 and the rest of the day is pretty much spent on the couch or lying down. If I exert myself in any way, the weakness and fatigue the rest of the day is horrible. On Thanksgiving I pushed myself and spent the day after in bed all day. I am no longer able to lift heavy things - anything over 10-15 pounds and I'm down for the count. I used to lift weights at the gym and now this. I've even resorted to using the motorized seated grocery cart thing at the grocery store so that I can save my energy.

Hi freezinginAK!
I have the same problems. I can do light chores, it really wears me out. I have to take a few naps a day. Thanksgiving was a killer because we have visit both families. So we had to spent 3 hours at my families house and then drive for an hour to spend time with my husbands family. We ended up spending the night there because I wasn't up for the long drive home. It was nice spending time with family and I love it, but it was so hard to stay awake from 2-10pm. When I absoltely have to, I can make it that long, but I end up paying for it the next day. Meaning I have to spend the day after in bed.

Today, it snowed a little and all I did was shower, make a quick pizza from a box and that's it. I needed to go register my car and buy some dishwasher soap, but just couldn't do it. I am on Leave for work because I was missing so much. I was having a hard time staying awake and functioning at my desk. And then to drive home in heavy traffic after work sucked.

I can do light chores, laundry. Then nap. Clean cat box, then nap. Eat and then nap. It's really frustrating because I am super ambiscious, and want to do lots of things, but my body won't let me. It's like my body is a prison.

JWalter,
What have the doctors told you? Are you on any medications? It really is unbelieveable how your life can change from one minute to the next. I never imagined my life being like this.

  Wow I'm glad I'm not going crazy. I have had this problem now for 12 years and none of my doctors can find out why. I've had so miny test that had come back normal that they had just stop taking them not knowing what was going on, even counseling for it with no help. I when't from a active life at 34 of hiking, biking, snowmachining, hunting and fishing always doing something on the weekends, Then I did a lot of overtime at work that pushed me to far and down I when't  to the ER and I still have not recovered from it, having p/a's etc. and have any of you tryed for SSI Disability for it won?

Yes, I do a little at a time....and I rest in between.
Tests finally proved that I'm suffering from Adrenal Fatigue and Type 2 Hypothyroidism (is defined as tissue resistance to thyroid hormones at the cellular level)

Daily I take:
Three Lac along with Oxygen Elements (twice daliy for Candida Yeast Overgrowth)
Multivitamin
500mg extra of Magnesium (key metabolic mineral for thyroid function)
200mcg extra of Chromium (key metabolic mineral for thyroid function)
200mcg extra of Selenium (key metabolic mineral and the key step to thyroid balance...it helps convert T4 to T3)
1000mg extra of Vitamin C
2 tablets 4 times daily of IsoCort

Yes. Every day I'm exhausted. It varies some from day to day, or rather it tends to go in phases, where I'm better for a few weeks and then worse for a few weeks. On bad days I can't do anything except lie down on the couch. On better days I might be able to do an errand, like go out to the store, but then I have to rest for several days afterward.
 
I find taking a shower to be one of the hardest tasks; I don't know if it's because you have to stand up for a solid fifteen minutes or so, plus reach your arms all around, and over your head to wash your hair. To me that's a kind of barometer: I'm so exhausted that most days I can't even take a shower.
 
But for the people who said they nap frequently, napping is impossible for me because it's extrememly difficult for me to fall asleep.
 
I've had this condition for over 20 years, and it's gradually gotten worse and worse.
