smhair    I so need to wake up!  I am always tired!  The morning is OK but after lunch through dinner I am so tired!  I am so frustrated that I cannot do anything that I want to do.  I think of things that should be done!  I feel so lazy!  I am going to mention this to my Dr(rheumatologist) tomorrow when I see her.  How do you pick yourself up again? It doesn't help that I am 100 lbs overweight!  Just so frustrated!

I agree. When I get like that I head outside with kids in tow and play with them, it does wonders. Just to be away from that couch calling my name.

Hi Lisa!

I was having the same problem but part of mine was because of the pain medications I take and the rest is from the fibro. One day when I was driving to work I was stopped at a traffic light. I sat there for a few seconds and was instantly asleep. Luckily it was only for a couple of seconds and I was awake when the light changed but it scared the daylights out of me.

I did some research and then asked my doctor about taking a medication called Provigil. It's used for narcolepsy and sleepiness in people who take narcotic pain medications regularly.... plus a few other uses. You might try asking your doc about trying it. This medications doesn't "speed" you up, it just allows you to be awake as you would when you felt more 'normal'.

Good luck and let us know what happens,
