[QUOTE=JohnC]Fatigue can be disabling from this disease. I have sleep apnea as well, and use a bi pap machine, but there is still fatigue.

If you wake up more tired than you were when you went to bed, then apnea may be an issue.

I have tried provigil in the past. Provigil is a CNS stimulant my neuro gives to MS and CIDP patients that have fatigue. It caused me to have pretty severe headaches so I only took it when I knew I had to push myself. Now, it seems the headaches are not guaranteed, but they do occur on occasion after taking it. Might be something to look into for those suffering from fatigue. Does anybody else take any kind of stimulant?[/QUOTE]
