Hi just wondering how many others who may have possible autoimmune issues suffer fatigue crashes? These are periods off fatigue above the normal where you feel the energy zapped from you. Like there is no more petrol in the tank.
I'm unsure what's the cause of my debilitating fatigue crashes but I've began to understand some triggers. My work being one of them due to the shift work causing extra tiredness and the stress of dealing with challenging behaviour in children certainly doesn't help. Although I'm also experiencing several other symptoms that I have mentioned in other posts.
Fatigue in legs and arms, pins and needles in legs hands and feet especially when sitting or lying down, brain fog, wooziness, slightly unbalanced, and some others.
I couldnt push push through anymore as these crashes were becoming more frequent and lasting several hours. I was unable to function after some shifts and feeling so ill I could do no more than sit and cry.... I hated feeling like this so I eventually went to my doctor and got signed off initially for 5 weeks.
Im just so unsure where to go. The fatigue unless balanced through diagnosis of some description won't just go away.
Im worried I'm doing more harm continually pushing through like I did.
im trying to walk most days and attempting to get back on track with my healthy eating but at only 38 feel like my life should be more than I'm able to do right now. I'm struggling and worried.
im awaiting a contrast MRI on the 17th of next month which has took months to get and I'm finally been referred to rheumatology although that'll take months aswell and I'm not convinced they'll see autoimmune anyway as my bloods for ana were negative.
sometimes I think it's been something keft behind by a virus and no ones going to get to the bottom of this. My neurologist and dermatologist both said similar that there may be nothing to find and it's just one off these things..... not that helpful when I feel positively vile sometimes.
