Struggling With Daily Fatigue

Tuesday, October 17, 2017

Good Evening!
I hope you're having a great start to a new week.

I wanted to share a personal post based around my daily experience of constantly feeling fatigue; this may help one person or it may help no one, but for me it's a way of processing my thoughts and letting them out into words to try and understand them. For the past few years I have really struggled with feeling tired on a daily basis and it hasn't really hit me and made a difference to my life until the past two years I'd say. It started to make a difference when I was going to see my boyfriend and I'd fall asleep during the day, or even a few afters after waking up. I wouldn't just sleep for half an hour however, I would sleep for at least three; it wasn't normal. 

In the past year or year and a half it's really impacted my life; I've felt tired after just waking up and I would feel tired for the whole day. For instance last night I probably had ten hours sleep which my body usually feels great on the next morning, however today I have felt drained and fatigue from the moment I woke up even until 8pm at night.

This is a problem I haven't spoken to the doctors about in the past four years, I didn't think anything of it! However, after going for tests for my migraines I mentioned to my neurologist how could my sleep have anything to do with the reason why I wake up in the morning with a migraine. I explained to him how I could have 6, 8 or even 10 hours sleep and I will still wake up with a migraine and therefore he sent for a sleep clinic test to find out whether my sleep is a good sleep or whether it's a very light, broken sleep which is making an impact on my head. 

This test was carried out on the 12th September this year and I received my results last week; they were completely normal, no issues what so ever with my sleep. After feeling exhausted a couple of days ago I questioned what was wrong with me if it's nothing to do with the way I sleep. Why am I feeling fatigue and drained on a daily basis regardless of how much sleep I get?

Having daily fatigue makes daily life a struggle; it makes you feel exhausted on top of already feeling tired. It makes daily activities and jobs around the house exhausting when they shouldn't be. Being a student at University, it has a huge impact on when I can get work done and when I can't. I didn't even bother trying to do any University work today because I knew I wouldn't be able to because of how tired I felt.

I plan on speaking to my doctor next week about this problem to find out what it may be and how I can stop this daily feeling of fatigue so I can finally have my answers. At the same time, I plan on also finding out the answers to my daily migraines too.

If you're reading this and you struggle with daily fatigue; have you spoken to your doctor about it? What did they say?

I'll see you soon

  1. I suffer from fatigue/exhaustion a lot as well but the doctors always put it down to my mental health and the fact I never sleep the whole night. It's still very frustrating. Yours sounds so much worse than mine and I hope they get to the bottom of it.
