How Do You Manage Severe Fatigue?

How Do You Manage Severe Fatigue?

I sleep well during normal hours 11:30 to 7am. Sometines During the day I feel like I hit a wall and have to take a nap. I go to a deep sleep for 2 to 4hours.

I too can sleep easily during the day and sometimes felt that someone pulled the plug and all my energy ran out. I stared to increase my vitamins and that seems to help

I have problems with fatigue as well. I also try to take some meds at different times.

I would recomend taking your BP. PD can cause intermittant vaso dilation that will cause severe fatigue. I get this sometimes.

My Dr adjusted some of my meds to be taken later in the day. That being sad, the Sinemet still causes me to feel drowsy during the day. I have to stay busy most of the time to avoid naps. You could talk to your Dr. Just to be sure there are no underlying health issues.

Humor helps keep the gray away😊
PD has taken so much from me, (and I don’t even have an official dx yet), my humor is something it can’t have. It’s gotten me through many dark days.
