Chronic fatigue post lumbar fusion
I had a lumbar fusion five years ago and still cannot be up and around for longer than three hours. I get one hour of good stamina. If you met me for the first time in that hour you wouldn't think in a million years I owned a walker and four canes. I need to sit, stand, lie down and move around in hour two and if I don't I will be totally out of commission after three hours, needing a nap of an hour or so. The fatigue is so severe that I can barely lift my arms or even speak. The doctors have no idea what to do and are simply labeling it a nondescript nervous system disorder. I don't want to treat it, I want it gone. Can anyone out there help?
