I have a sero-negative inflammatory arthritis. Most family doctors are at a loss unless you have rheumatoid arthritis. When the inflammation was at its worst, I slept round the clock, much like one does with a bad case of influenza. As my doctor explained, the body fights inflammation as it does an infection and its hard work, thus the fatigue. Once I saw a rheumatologist and began treatment, my fatigue level improved.

Re: Tired all the time

PM me if you want info about M.E exel, imnapl, no idea why you asked that question, and tbh i dont really care, im really not in the frame of mind for petty debates about an illness i have and suffer with day in day out, i know it like the back of my hand, all i was doing here was pointing out a misconception that this thread has - that m.e is all about being "tired" - completely false. excuse me for trying to raise both awareness and understanding about this dreadful illness.

now, please can no one else address anything i have said, if people wish to discuss things further, PM me, otherwise, goodbye.

Re: Tired all the time

Good question, Imnapl. This discussion is not all about Sarey, as she just told us herself.

Excel: Google is your friend.

Excel, have you had a chance to see a rheumatologist? With the muscle atrophy, do you/they think it could be a type of myositis?

I can definitely attest to inflammation (autoimmunity) being a source of debilitating fatigue. If you haven't seen a specialist yet, it'd be worth your while to go and rule out the possibility.

Best of luck to you. Please keep us posted.

Crestor, as in medication for lowering cholesterol? I just checked the website at crestor.com and found this warning:
Serious side effects may include:
Muscle Problems. Call your doctor right away if you experience unexplained muscle pain, tenderness, or weakness, especially with fever. This may be an early sign of a rare muscle problem that could lead to serious kidney problems. The risk of muscle problems is greater in people who are 65 years of age or older, or who already have thyroid or kidney problems. The chance of muscle problems may be increased if you are taking certain other medicines with CRESTOR.

Re: Tired all the time

Now that I'm of the cymbalta, and on Lexapro I'm not as tired. I still don't feel like doing a lot of things.

Re: Tired all the time

Myositis is inflammation of your skeletal muscles, which are also called the voluntary muscles. These are the muscles you consciously control that help you move your body. An injury, infection or autoimmune disease can cause myositis.
The diseases dermatomyositis and polymyositis both involve myositis. Polymyositis causes muscle weakness, usually in the muscles closest to the trunk of your body. Dermatomyositis causes muscle weakness, plus a skin rash. Both diseases are usually treated with prednisone, a steroid medicine, and sometimes other medicines.

Re: Tired all the time

I have always had issues with being tired. I was first put on adderall for "daytime sleepiness", but when I went back to school I had to address my learning disabilities; something it tried to hide my entire life. I have heard from others that add makes you tired. I wake up tired and am constantly tired.

Before i had my health issues I started exercising and that helped my fatigue a great deal.
