Does Any Of You Exprience Chronic Fatigue That Makes It Hard To Have Enough Energy To Function Properly An Do Things You Once Could?

Hey, do you ever feel that way
I feel really heavy often and I lack the energy to even converse with people
When I play sports I run out of breath very quickly and I used to be a competitive athlete with amazing cardio.
I've done all the tests out there and keep going back to my GP and my doc what else can we test and do about it.
Of course all th tests came back negative. It's been lasting for about 3 years now and is so debilitating. I also feel slow and sluggish often.

I’ve been feeling good for several months now, but still experience fatigue on a daily basis. I have started exercising but find it just exhausts me more. I’m supposed to return to work next month for half days and I’m not sure how this fatigue is going to affect me. Anyone else have this experience?

Lost Hope With Doctors

Lost Hope With Doctors

I'm at the stage that I feel it's pointless making doctors appointments as it's never going to make me better and is a waste of time. This illness has been going on so long and my doctors had a really awkward system of making appointments which makes it worse. I hate talking on the phone which also doesn't help. Ive been battling chronic fatigue recently and could just sleep my life away. I'm not getting enough help from the mental health team, can only see them every three months. How do you… read more

Does Your Level Of Pain Change Depending On Your Level Of Depression And/or Anxiety Level?

Does Your Level Of Pain Change Depending On Your Level Of Depression And/or Anxiety Level?

Does your depression and/or anxiety manifest as increased pain? I've found mine tends to. I have joint pain in my knees daily. The weather plays a factor in that, but I often find that if my depression and/or anxiety is elevated, so is the level of pain, and I tend to move around a lot slower. Does anyone else feel that? How do you deal with it?
