    I have to nap everyday...but I get tired usually about 2-3 hours after I get up in the morning.

    I would say, listen to your body, or when you feel tired, do something like walk, clean something, etc... just to bypass the fatigue.

    Hope that helps!

    I think the fatigue is also my worst enemy/symptom. I try and exercise but somedays are much harder then others. Work full time and don't have the oppurtunity to take a nap, which I do believe would help me alot. I feel exhausted by two oclock in the afternoon. I have to work so I have no choice but to work through it. I do have weds off now so going to a four day week has made a difference. I hurt more in the winter months so I am happier in the summer months when it is warmer. Sorry no suggestions but Just wanted to let you know you aren't alone.

    Know I misspelled those meds. For years I took one or the other for sleep. There were days I would fall asleep over my computer or be in the middle of a conversation with someone and realize I hadn't heard their question. Once I stopped those, I wasn't quite as tired. Have had this for 15 years, but since retiring, I can nap if I want to, but rarely do.

    Good luck, I know what it's like trying to work with this DD.

    i take trazadone and xanax. i tried to stop the xanax but that didnt work.some days i wonder if it would be better if i didnt take anything. i have been reading about fibro centers but of course they dont have any in vermont.

    thanks
