I have been exhausted a lot lately. I mean, a lot more than usual. Maybe it's just my fibro but my pain is reasonably controlled and I don't know why the fatigue would sudden get much, much worse. I feel like maybe my iron is low, but I take a ton of iron so it shouldn't be. But I think I need some blood work done.
I see my rheumatologist in a week and I was trying to wait until then to ask her if she thinks it's the fibro or something else. But I decided today, once I finally pulled myself out of bed, that I need to go see my primary care doctor and get some labs ordered now.
Mind you, last night I went to sleep on the couch about 7:30 pm. I got up about 11 pm, at something and talked to a friend on the phone for a bit, then was back to sleep by midnight. Isaac work me up early in the morning and I took him out to pee and fed him, then went back to bed. I didn't really get up until about 10 am.
Then I took Isaac for a 45 minute nap and now I feel like I really want to go back to sleep again.
This is beyond my normal level of fatigue. And I hate it.
Only I can't get in touch with my doctor's office. I keep calling and getting voice mail telling me what their office hours are and to call back then. Only I am calling during those office hours. I hate when businesses do that. They need to answer the phone.
