We still Hope
I feel like I am always tired, sometimes needing naps but I am in no position to take mid day naps because I work full time and go to school. I am looking for any remedies as well. The thing about sickle cell is that I am always thirsty and to quench my thirst, I am constantly drinking water. I often wake up at night to use the bathroom and sometimes, I feel as though I get no rest at all. Otherwise, I think fatigue in general is a issue with me. But I am hoping someone can provide some insight on what helps with the tiredness. Thanks for posting this thread. Oh, and what's up Ade!!!
Happy New Year, I hope all is well.
Increase your water intake with a bit of lemon. Get off that sugar and salt.
Has this worked for you?
Yes, its a struggle for sure. It seems like no matter how many hours of sleep I get I could sleep more. I recently switched to a schedule where i wake up at 5:30am versus 6:30 in accordance with going to bed earlier and I actually feel a bit better. It's still a challenge every morning though. I had a sleep study and they didn't show I had apnea so I think it is due to SS at least in part.
