  • Can Anyone Help? Extreme Fatigue?

    Hello! Has anyone had extreme exhaustion? Like I'm-so-physically-exhausted-i-can't-walk or function? It mostly happens in my legs and arms at random. It gets to the point that I can no longer move them on and off through the episodes. Any advice would be great! Thanks!
