@JustinMcClanahan , yes a day off helps, it's just always whenever I do the things I mentioned I get run down. Almost borderline sick (cold sores) little sore throat. I do come around with a day or so off…meaning I still do my errands, housework, and cooking. Just no big chores, or days out, driving hours. @gingerw , thanks so much for your reply!
I was surprised you said exactly what I feel about wondering if the energy will hold up. Very concerning to me on holidays since I have everything here. It's best case scenario for my parents and 3 daughters with theirs. I dont mind one bit doing things, like you, I'm up early and eager to start…I just don't understand ther severity of fatigue, and body aches, even my voice gets weak…dont even want to talk. I always push through enough to get what I intended done, but then, that's it. Body pain gets unbearable, until I quit. I also cook dinners early, by 1-2 pm.
I basically eay healthy, lots of greens, fish, chicken. Take multi and C, calcium at night. I walk about 2 miles, sometimes more with errands, but never on a day I take on a big chore.
Ginger, did your drs ever explain your fatigue, other than the kidney issues…is this a normal occurrence with MGUS??
