fatigue and work

August 13, 2007 at 9:03 am

I sure do wish more Drs would recognize this “post GBS fatigue”! The Provigil helps a lot, but the fatigue is still there. I think when you take a medication like this, you have to be careful because it doesn’t “cure” the fatigue it just allows you to push through it when you couldn’t otherwise. I often worry about returning to work, as I am on disability right now. I can’t imagine having to work right now. I work in a hospital, on my feet for 8-12 hours with few breaks. I know that my body can’t do that right now, and it’s scary to sit and wonder if I will ever be able to return to work, I’m only 38! It sounds like this is a common concern. Take care!
