Default How to deal with chronic fatigue? - 12-28-2008, 08:39 AM

Has anyone found ways to manage their chronic fatigue? I can't seem to get anything done anymore. I've tried drinking lots of caffeine to give me a"boost"but I get used to it&it doesn't help. Oh, and please no lectures on living better, I ride my bike or walk my dogs daily for 5 miles, I eat plenty of vegies and take suppliments.Has anyone found a schedule they can live with? I try VERY hard not to nap thru the day, but found if I keep that up for a few days I crash the next day or two&sleep all day.It is soooo frustrating, am tired of either sleeping my life away or too tired to do anything but walk the dogs. Any ideas on how you cope? Thanks!

I was diagnosed with CFS 12 years ago. Honestly, the only thing that has remotely helped was eating a gluten-free diet. (Which, of course, I didn't find out about until I was diagnosed with a wheat allergy). I've also heard going dairy-free helps too.Get a basic blood panel for allergies the next time you go to the doctor. Sometimes CFS is diagnosed when there's really a food allergy.In the winter I also use a tanning bed, for about 10 minutes every week. It's not exactly the healthiest thing in the world, but it does help.And best luck, because feeling that tired all the time totally sucks.
