    What problem would you eliminate.

    I would like to get rid of the mental fatigue (tiredness) over anything else.

    causes me the most fatigue. I just feel worn down and out from the pain
    at times. Hugs, Bambi

    It would definitely be the unrelenting pain of the migraines.........and the brain fatigue over the physical fatigue..........

    ...that I would love to eliminate has to be my lower rib pain. I have it daily, with some days being unbearable. Hope our wishes are granted. God bless. Tes.

    Mental and physical. Would love to be able to watch TV and have normal phone conversation without getting so tired.

    can be really bad. I think the pain wears me down physically and mentally and then the depression kicks in and then it all becomes a viscious circle that I can't get out of.

    Oh if I could only sleep....the fatigue would go away and my body could heal itself. Yep, for me it has got to be the lack of stage 4 sleep. You know it is really bad when someone tells you how good they sleep and cannot relate at all to your insomnia.. I just want to slap them and tell them to, shut the "bleep" up! And I am not an angry person but lack of sleep is making me mean :(

    I worked for 13 years with FM. But when the thigh pain and
    spasms kicked in, that was it. Also the knee joint areas.

    Also, when I'm sitting here at the compurter, my neck starts to hurt, but, if I rest for awhile it will go away.

    There's absolutley no resolve for the thigh pain, except Ultram, Muscle relaxers, Magnesium, and getting horizontal.

    Luckily my doc gives me "big time uppers" to help with the
    fatique, which I only use if the pain is in the range of
    4-6 which can be at times bearable. Then I can move around
    which will help some.

    Sorry so long,

    Just ahead of the constant fatigue would have to be all the cruel neurological symptoms I suffer with.
    If they went away I think I'd be truly happy.

    the never-ending throbbing, pulsating pain in my neck and my head and my back!

    I think it's a tie.

    The fatigue makes my pain feel worse and my pain makes me more fatigued. The vicious cycle of the DD. Oh to have stage 4 sleep and a low pain day!

    or Fatigue and Pain, anyway you want to look at it, I'd love to be rid of them both.
