Like many CF symptoms, my energy level is always a bit unpredictable. I can go from having a good amount of energy to having absolutely none without a moment’s notice.
I’m currently in a no-energy phase, and it doesn’t make sense to me. I’ve gotten decent sleep, I’m not overly stressed, and I’m feeling pretty well otherwise. But I’m having a hard time accomplishing daily tasks or keeping my eyes open when I sit down for more than a few minutes.
Do your energy levels wax and wane over the course of the day or week? Do you have any tips to boost your energy levels when they start to drop?
I allow myself to sleep a lot when my energy is low. I really notice my eating habits at those times and have to force myself to take in nutrition. It usually takes a couple of days for those calories to kick in, but I do usually see an improvement in my energy levels. Eat 🙂
