Fatigue and Endometriosis

Posted on March 05, 2018

Do you feel exhausted all the time? It might be endometriosis. Members of MyEndometriosisTeam frequently talk about extreme fatigue. “I’m always tired! I wake up tired. It doesn’t even feel like I slept,” says one member “Fatigue is like hitting a brick wall. You simply cannot move,” says another. It’s hard to keep up with the demands of home, work and social lives when all you want to do is crawl back into bed. The good news: Women in the endometriosis community offer valuable tips and support for coping with fatigue. “The struggle is real so be kind to yourself,” advises one member. “Rest and sleep guilt-free when you can. It recharges the batteries.”

On MyEndometriosisTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with endometriosis members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Fatigue is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.
