So, newly diagnosed, took around 9 months for them to say its ME. I couldn't give you a run off of my symptoms they're so varied. Anything from sharp neuro pain and burning skin, to extreme fatigue and legs in particular feeling like lead. Left my career as an IT Project manager 60 plus hours a week. Now do admin at a very basic level at 19 hours a week. One day work, one day off in that order! I will have many questions that you will have all no doubt heard before but as I'm sure you've all experienced I wad diagnosed and discharged... Left with the Internet to solve my problems. Today's question.. . Does anyone get an outburst of energy at certain times of day, mine is from about 4.30pm to 6.30pm. So far I'm putting it down to my body needing that long to wake up, insomnia and very restless sleep means I'm very groggy in the morning. Today was a day off. Eldest to school, nothing til 1pm, then lunch with my sis and newborn... Lasted an hour and when I got home my usual heavy ache and exhaustion hit. Then when I got back from 3pm school run I was able to put away 2 wash loads of ironing (unironed... I do that daily now rather than hours at a time) and gave the house a good running over. I know I'll pay for it tomorrow... Especially as its a work day. But during the burst I feel healthy again. I feel like there is nothing wrong. So then I pour bad thoughts on myself... Tell myself "See!! You can do more"... Takes me back to thinking the docs have got it wrong. Best to mention I'm seeing a counsellor very soon for a 6 week stint as they think I'm having trouble "accepting" having a chronic illness. Well sure I am, it's transformed my life in 9 short months! So back to the question..... Anyone feel energised at regular certain times of day!?
