I am a 62 year old male and have had a diagnosis of B for over 20 years. I am sure that I have shared many similar experiences to you all. Biggest low - pneumonia and 2 weeks of IV antibiotics but that was 8 years ago.
More recently I have had infections that appear to be antibiotic resistant and have gone on for some time. The real change is 'fatigue' which had never happened before seemingly being a part of the infection. A few years ago this went on for sometime until a bronchoscopy was completed and the bugs in my lungs targted with Doxycycllne. This sorted the infection and fatigue - but not for too long. Last year I had an infection that lasted 4 months (none of the usual AB's worked) and fatigue. I was referred to a consultant but the referral took so long it had burned itself out by the time I saw him. 5 months later another infection. I have fatigue again. just finished my 3rd course of AB's.
My question is - has anyone else been dealing with fatigue as a part of this condition?
The fatigue is debilitating - any type of exercise or even just a busy day will result in feeling unwell sometimes to the point of bed being the ony answer. It's frustrating for many reasons not least that any form of exercise to support good health is ruled out while this goes on.
I would appreciate to know about any of your exoeriences.
