Fatigue and PCOS

Posted on April 27, 2018

"I feel like I had a good thing going. Kept on top of the diet and exercise and then I did night shifts and got a cold about three weeks ago and the post viral fatigue, shift work, and the PCOS fatigue has just knocked me down." -A member on myPCOSteam

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

Here are some conversations about fatigue:

Really tired today... doctor seems to think I have GERD or something wrong with my digestion and stomach acid. As if my everyday fatigue wasn't enough :/

I’m so tired right now I have a lot of homework to do but I feel so drained. I barely have the energy to do anything. Does anyone have any recommendations as far as what they use or do to combat fatigue?

I struggle with varying degrees of fatigue (usually more on the higher/severe side). I have consistently struggled with being on time to work.

Here are some question and answer threads about fatigue:

Do any of you ladies struggle with fatigue? Is there anything I can take to help?

How do you deal with debilitating fatigue during your period?

Does anyone else suffer from fatigue and sugar crashes?

Can you relate?
