Hi, I've had UC for many years now, but these past few months I've really been hit by the chronic fatigue. I find it difficult to get myself up in the morning and by the afternoon I'm completely wiped out. I barely have the energy to do basic tasks at home without a nap or at least a strong coffee beforehand.
Does anyone have any advice? How do you cope with this? Has anyone else experienced more fatigue with age?

I try and get more sleep. At least 8hrs but there are days where I just can't get that. I just rest more when I can

I also experience chronic fatigue. I have had UC for 6 years now. My doctors don't seem to understand why I feel so depleted of energy after performing simple / minor tasks. I do have back issues such as degenerative disc disease and bulging discs. I can tell the difference between the back pain and the fatigue. I have tried taking vitamin E, drinking energy drinks, drinking coffee, which nothing seems to work. This is one of the reasons I joined this site. I don't know how I am suppose to hold a full-time position when some days I don't feel like getting out of bed, I have an infusion once per month which also depletes my energy, and I have multiple doctor appts. each month. I've been let go from the last 2 jobs due to these reasons and disability continues to deny my claims. They state all though I am disabled, I can do some type of work.
