The thing that takes away the pain the most and helps with the fatigue is an indoor swimming pool. I joined a community center and try to get into the pool 3 times a week. Of course, when I get home I am exhausted but just being somewhere I can move without pain lifts my spirits. What I hate is the way the fatigue from pain has changed my personality. Grumpy, irrational and angry at the world. I don’t sleep well since I worry about everything, including the cuts in prescribing opioids since I’m not dying from cancer. Why don’t docs understand that pain causes fatigue!
