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?

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.

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