I'm pretty sure I've posted here before about
my fatigue issues. But I started classes this week and it's almost unbearable. Sure, I usually get a bit more achey during the first week of school b/c of walking, but last night I could barely stand. My shins hurt. I'm not a deep sleeper, but I have been the last couple days. Last semester, I got by on 7 hours of sleep + 2 hour naps; this past week, even though I haven't even had all of my classes, I'm sleeping 8-9 hours + 2 hour naps. I can barely
open my eyes when my alarm goes off. The best feeling to describe the fatigue is "heavy," like my body is weighed down with fatigue.
My UC is under control and my allergies have been doing pretty well, especially considering how much more I'm outside now. My rheumy did hint at fibromyalgia once, but she said my symptoms weren't bad enough to do something about it. My GI doesn't know what the fatigue could be. At this point, I don't know how I'm going to survive this semester, especially since I have grad school apps and whatnot. Heck, I don't know how I'll even survive "real life" (i.e. working 40 hours per week)
Sorry if this is rambling. I just woke up from a nap and I'm in a bit of a fog.
