That is how I feel from the fatigue. I take adderall for that though and I am able to do things and don't feel the heaviness. I walk daily too. That helps get my energy level up. I hope this helps some.

Hi jc,

I have the heavy feeling. Even though I do I try to stay active by not sitting too long and doing my stretches twice a day. I aslo take a couple short walks twice a day.

Try to keep your energy level up by eating the right foods and perhaps some supplements would help?
Fibromyalgia, CFS, multiple chemical sensivity, herniated disks, spinal stenosis, osteoarthritis, ADD, sjorgens, sleep apnea, asthma, headaches. The only medication I take is ibuprofen at night to sleep along with my supplements for sleeping. I am on a regiment of different supplements, I eat very nutritiously, and ever since my injury years ago I have been doing prescribed stretches x2 daily.

CFS can cause that that feeling. It loves to tag along with fibro.

It's one of my least favorite symptoms. Especially when the elevator is not working.
