Is it normal to be extremely fatigued with pouchitis? I am so tired I could sleep 24/7 and it is fatigue that overwhelms me and it's hard to function. I quit my full time (away from home) job in February and got a full time stay at home job because I thought maybe the stress of being so tired and having to go to work was just making my fatigue worse. But since I've been home, the fatigue has worsened. My primary doctor even put me on Adderall because I can't focus on my job. While Adderall does help, I am still tired. I had my scope done about 1 month ago and it showed inflammation so my doctor ordered stool cultures to be done, checking for parasites or c-diff. I'm still waiting for the results because I had to do the sample twice because the lab messed up on the testing. Ugh! In the meantime, my doctor did not want me to start on Cipro until the results from the stool samples were back. I am struggling! I NEED to work (financially). I keep thinking I am going to end up on disability but my husband would never understand that and I wouldn't even know where to start. The fatigue makes me depressed too and then the depression makes me tired so its a vicious circle. Also, I have hemmoroids (I guess) and they are a extremely large and itch real bad (sorry for the description). I don't really like my doctor so calling him about this is a mute point. He's very cold and when I mentioned I guess I have hemmoroids because I can feel them, he didn't even remark on it. He just looked at me and kept on doing what he was doing. Ugh! Is all this normal? The fatigue? Hemmorroids that I can feel on the outside? Sorry for the long rant. I'm at the end of my rope on this!
