I've been very tired, too. And my foot aches for some mysterious reason. After 4-5 days of constant pain, I am worn down by the most simple of doings. I've been reading about activated charcoal (uses), and decided to make a foot soak with it. What.a.mess. My foot did feel better for a while, tho. Hope you are feeling a little better, and rested. Because of the extreme heat I am on the same schedule as the desert wildlife. I really enjoy the very early am and late evening here, sharing space with a myriad of wild critters. I do feel blessed. Hope you have a good day!

Your schedule of rising early sounds great. It used to be my favorite time of the day because I had the most energy. Seems the fatigue has taken that pleasure away, at least for now. Hopefully one day it will return. We are way hot again. Will be for the rest of the week. Have to duck and hide again, being careful not to even venture toward to door! LOL Keep cool and I will try to do the same. Glad to read the charcoal foot soak helped you. I assume it is not nerve pain? Is it spasms?

Last year my dr. wrote me an RX for a drug that he said will really help the fatigue. My insurance co. denied it, saying it was only approved for other conditions. My dr. was so annoyed. I cannot remember the name of the drug, but will find it for you. Will do a search for either the ins. co. denial letter or do an internet search for "drug helps MS fatigue" till I recognize the name. Have you ever tried these type of drugs and did they help? I have had good success with bladder control drugs. As to my foot, it had to be nerve pain due to the feeling of cold, the humming, the severe ache. Who knows if it was the soak, the charcoal, or my finding the pressure point that seemed to release it... It wasn't spasms, b/c the baclofen didn't even touch it, even double dose. When the fatigue, or pain gets me down that bad, I swear I'm willing to go Big Fat Greek Wedding and "put some Windex on it". ha. I'm pretty much up for anything that might help.

Hi Monica. Yes, we are both very happy to meet someone new. Not that we aren't thoroughly enjoying the company of one another. ;) Tuscongirl, I just noticed there was a post before the one suggesting we switch to another forum. Sorry I missed it before. I take Lyrica for the nerve pain I experience in my right leg and I have had success with Prozac for my killer fatigue. My GP decided we should give an "oldie" drug a try since nothing new was working for me. I am so happy he encouraged me to give Prozac a try because it is the only drug that has given me relief from the fatigue that has side-lined me for almost 2 years now.

Still looking for the drugs' name for the fatigue, (it isn't the one you named in the other forum). I tried the Lyrica but it made me so weak and tired. I have noticed that I am becoming more and more drug sensitive. Dr. mostly gives me child-sized doses.
