It has been over 11 years since my brain AVM was discovered at the time of a bleed. It has also been many years as well since I completed my rehabilitation (OT, SLP, PT), but one thing I can’t seem to shake is the fatigue. I asked a pharmacist if he had any suggestions, so he asked the basic questions:
“Are you getting enough sleep?” YES
“Do you take multi-vitamins?” YES
“Do you get enough exercise?” YES
“Is it your iron levels?” DON’T THINK SO, because it is all about how tired my mind is!
And the thing is, I am not “tired”… I am “fatigued.” Sleep doesn’t help me because my brain is tired. Sometimes I’m too exhausted to dream, and even in my dreams, I still feel worn out. I work five days a week and take lots of breaks, but come the weekends, I just don’t feel like I am getting over my exhaustion. Does anyone have any suggestions or natural things they use to relieve fatigue?
Thanks for your replies!
