MS Fatigue




Sometimes, my MS makes me feel extremely fatigued... the sort of mental and physical tiredness / weariness / exhaustion that doesn't necessarily go away after a good sleep. Not always sleeping well doesn't help me in that regard, either.

It's awful, as this dysfunction prevents me from participating in life, and I miss out on a lot of people/things I enjoy in my life.

Sometimes, I feel like I have the attention-span of a sock...

I despise becoming 'unreliable', but there's nothing I can do about it.

Sometimes, I get a slight headache with it all, as well.

  1. Sounds terrible. Other friends with MS have said similar. It sounds rather like the fatigue, listlessness, lack of inclination and bone-tiredness of Hashimoto's thyroiditis when your dose of thyroxine is insufficient. Of course Hashimoto'susually doesn'tprogress to worse as these days doctors are alert and medication is cheap and easily available. For MS things seem to just keep getting worse at an unpredictable rate and your body doesn't want to play by the rules any more. Not good. I know you'll never "give in" to your MS, and remember there are many friends willing you to keep playing your beloved music.
