Tonight's Chat - Fatigue
Posted 11 May 2008 - 04:42 PM
With some of us involved in Mother''s Day dinners, I wondered if anyone could summarize tonight's Chatroom discussion about fatigue for those of us who missed it. In particular, I was wondering if anyone discussed whether or not fatigue is always associated with internal organ involvement, of if it can occur without a definite cause.
Do some people never experience fatigue?
Any info would be of help. I'm new to all of this.
Thank you so much and Best Wishes to everyone.

Welcome to the forums! And what a great idea! I would love to see regular summaries of sclero chat as I haven't been able to get in yet and the topics have been SO GOOD.
I know that means some extra time and work for someone(s) but we'll see what the powers that be think......Not sure how it could be presented - ie as a topic that can be replied to or rather posted as more like meeting notes without replies.
Thanks for the good idea and and we'll see...
As for fatigue - I think most, if not all, of us battle the dreaded fatigue pretty regularly. I was fighting with it today

On a personal note, I don't have any organ involvement, but I struggle with fatigue on a daily basis. As I mentioned in chat, sometimes taking a shower is just too much, so I tend to sit in the tub because standing requires way too much effort.
