Hi, I have ulcerative colitis, and usually just look at the posts there, but for the past six months or so (since recovering from my last flare of UC) I have been exhausted. I have no energy, everything seems too difficult. I struggle to get up in the morning, and could literally sleep any time during the day. When I get home from work, I always have a sleep, and can still sleep at bedtime. At the weekends, I just sleep, sleep, sleep whenever I can. I also suffer from joint pains (back, knees, hips) and just generally feel blah!...all of this could be related to the UC and/or the medication that I have for this. Also, my job is quite demanding/stressful (I work with young people with behavioural problems), a friend suggested that it could be CFS....any thoughts or advice would be appreciated!
