    HI yes i feel exhausted and  itch after every shower even using just water and no shower or soap agents. So bad im having wash downs with flannels and just having a shower when i wash my hair which ive reduced to just twice a week now. Just wondered if it could be the FIbro causing this. Probably not but just know whats causing this had it for the last two years too but diagnosed with M.E. 18 years ago.

    Yes sarapainfree it feels like the bath sucks the life out of you and trying to dry yourself drains you even more, the towel feels like it weighs 20lb, then you get dressed and you are socked again with uncontrolable sweating, does that happen as well.

    Yes fatigued in the shower, after the shower.  Exhausting even towel drying myself.  I either have to lay down or sit down quietly for a spell.  But I have to say, I do have the very odd occasion when I feel so refreshed, sadly tiredness will kick in within half an hour though.
