Hi all. I need serious advice for severe fatigue! I know it has to do w lack of sleep bc I stay awake til 4 or 5 am & then sleep til kids get home fro school & TRY to stay awake but not always working!
I have tried decreasing fentanyl patch dose but that makes it even worse! (For some reason, I just sleep 24/7 when in pain???). I don't understand all this bc I am supposedly in remission from Lupus ..but then why so tired?!
I take clonaxepam 1 Mg for sleep but doesn't work. Tried to tell sleep clinic Dr but she doesn't want to increase it. Help! I'm tired & its getting depressing!
