So sorry the fatigue has got you down (literally) It's the most difficult part of my husband's MS. He was falling asleep driving, talking, mid-sentence. He takes provigil now as well as a combo of EGCG, quercetin and bromelain and can make it thru the day. He also takes medication for depression. Like you, he is far from lazy or a downer. Prior to MS he was a pretty up and energetic guy.
His new dr. thinks it is part of the cerebral congestion he shows due to bilateral jugular vein stenosis, and is expecting Jeff will get relief once his stent is in place. He also hopes Jeff will throw those pills away. It will be anecdotal evidence (at first)- if he and the 100 other liberation procedure folks get relief. We'll see more in the coming months, as the research is documented.
Hope you find some relief. Know that you are not alone in the troubling issue of fatigue...
Also...most of Jeff's lesions are in his brain (20) and one on the cervical spine, adjacent to his jugular vein blockage. Do you know if your damage is more in the head or spine, K?
