SFN fatigue

Yes. I am in the process of being tested for SFN and Fibromyalgia. I also have several herniated discs in my spine and had a cervical fusion with hardware last year. I am exhausted and have needed to stop working (after 20 years of teaching) and I need to nap at least two hours each day. I am exhausted after cooking for my family, driving my kids to activities, and basic daily chores. I am not sure what is the exact cause of the exhaustion. I have undergone numerous tests, all blood tests show nothing irregular, EMGs are normal, MRIs show no lesions (ruled out MS) and so far there is no cause to my symptoms. They all fall in line with SFN and Fibromyalgia at this point.

Welcome @katcollins, It can be frustrating to deal with the symptoms and not know what the cause is. Being exhausted most of the time can make it that much worse. Hoping you get some answers soon. The chronic fatigue sounds familiar to another discussion that I thought I would share to see if it sounds similar to your symptoms.

How long ago did your symptoms start?
