Not surprised at all. Fatigue is my worst symptom of UC. Even in remission I need at least 9 hours of sleep, I can't function without afternoon naps, and sometimes I can't even focus when I'm tired. I really miss my old body--I used to be able to survive on an hour of sleep if needed. Now I don't even want to try getting less than 8 hours of sleep!
My GI tells me it's just some of the depression and to exercise, but when I had depression before (and not UC) I still had more energy than this and I do get exercise almost everyday!
But the question is, how do we reverse this?
