I ask him why? He said because I am so fatigued I cannot move.
When I was in the sickest part of this illness, I wanted to stay asleep too. The bed felt s good and I would sleep most of the day and be up most of the night because I felt better then. When I was asleep I felt no pain and did not feel the fatigue. So, yes I would say it is nrmal with this illness. No I have the opposite problem, it is hard to get to sleep and stay there. Everything always seems to be backwards with this.
He is on cymbalta and takes it in the morning. That is the only pill he is taking. I wonder if he brought it down some would it help? I have the problem going to sleep and staying asleep. I use earplugs 1mg klonopin and quiet. Oh yeh and I take one 5 mg valuim.
I also wonder if his panic attacks would get worse? I think the cymbalta is not doing good in the GI or pale stools prob. Now he did have the prob before he started the cymbalta.
He went to a doc yesterday about the pale stools. Of course she sees panic disorder and tells him you are overreacting!!
If you come on chat (lower right hand corner, and click on chat next to my name) I can give you some useful info on dosing cymbalta with CFS. This is from an autonomic specialist. Most docs will give CFS patients waaay too high a dose.
I certainly did when I was at my lowest point physically. It can be a pretty torturous illness. I don't know anybody who wouldn't prefer to sleep through that.
When mine is flaring bad, I'd certainly rather be asleep than be awake, feeling that way.
