I'm hoping to get some accounts on how fatigue effects different people. I've had MS now for 9 years and the last year or so i've been suffering really bad from fatigue but i'm not sure if it's because of MS.
I'm tired all of the time, my legs are almost always weak to some degree and my knees are often stiff and ache. I know my symptoms sound like ms but it doesn't feel like it is to me. I feel "ill". I know thats sounds very general but thats the only way i can describe it. As well as feeling tired and weak i also ache from head to toe like i have the flu, i can't concentrate at all, i get very irritable with people and most days i'd be much happier if i could just stay in bed and sleep. I feel like i'm getting worse, when my fatigue started i didn't have it everyday. I would have more good days than bad and if i rested i would get enough energy back to do something, now it doesn't seem to work. I didn't even have enough energy last night to go to the cinema with my husband.
Does anyone else feel this way because of their fatigue or could there be something else wrong with me? I've been tested for anemia and my iron levels were fine.
