    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    i'm glad to see this topic floating around. i have such sheer exhaustion it's almost indescribable. waking up after a solid 10 hours only to feel like i never slept. my head is too heavy to hold up and my limbs barely function. my brain? not even turned on. often i go right back to bed for another 6-10 hours of sleep. i manage to stay awake for a few hours, then it's time for bed and i'm tired and ready. sometimes it's one day, sometimes almost a week. i'm just coming off 5 days of cat like sleeping. today is my first not sleeping all day day. i have not connected the fatigue with pain in any way. some really painful days i stay awake just fine. other's not. like much of fms and cfs there is no schedule.

    I'm usually ok the first part of the day now--well after the morning un-gelling with coffee. I can be up and managing my grandkids from about 9 to about 2. then I am soooo thankful they nap. Evenings I'm sitting here surfing the net and feeling like a useless rock. Such is life I guess. Mary
