Ran out of energy..

Jul 20, 2016 11:46 PM

When you run out of energy and your just sitting on your bathroom floor, because its too exhausting to even get up, dont worry ill be up in 20 minutes.. just put my son to bed and tidied up picked some things up off the bathroom floor and now just sitting here and now going to try and drag my ass to bed for a nap :/
Has this happened to anyone else? I havent fainted or anything just so exhausted! :(

Yes, fatigue hits like a ton of bricks. For me, I can be fairly inactive (as in didn't mow the lawn earlier) & wham! I need a nap. Like now. I can sometimes nap for 2-3 hours.

I just had a two and a half hr nap and i was solidly sleeping. Ive never had fatigue hit me that bad before. Ive always been tired but to not be able to get up was crazy. When it hits you like that can it be the start of a flare?

Happens to me also. When I crash, I am out for 2 or 3 hours. My husband tries to wake me but I won't stir.

It happens all the time, especially before, during, or after a fibro/sjogrens flare. 🙂💕🙏🌸

Absolutely. It hits me so hard sometimes that I do like you did and have to sit down wherever I am and hope it passes quickly.

I get that kind of fatigue before a lupus flare and with methotrexate although over time the methotrexate isn't as bad as in the beginning.

Oh my thank you all for your replies. Normally i get a slump in the afternoon where i do have to lay down but that was just terrible. I really hope i am not in a flare but i think i just came out of one cause ive had extreme hand and finger pain for a few weeks and now i just have the fog :/
