Fatigue And Weakness.

Fatigue And Weakness.

I'm curious to hear how all of you deal with fatigue. I go weeks to months extremely fatigued. With or without fatigue I get weak. Also, I get leg weakness. The leg weakness is ridiculously interfering in my life.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Miserableness Factor

Miserableness Factor

As I'm sure you folks have experienced, every time I go to the Rheumy, I'm asked what my pain level is. My meds keep my pain pretty much under control, so my answer is usually a 1 or 2. But I need to be asked what my MISERABLENESS FACTOR is. Miserableness is defined as my crappy malais, fatigue and right-to -the-core ick feeling making activities not possible. That number can range from a 5 to a 10.
Any one else wanna join my team?
