I have both ME/CFS and Fibromyalgia, but for me the fatigue is far worse and harder to handle than the pain. I can deal with the pain and I actually find the pain easier for me to work through. If I can find something to do while I am in pain I can take my mind off of it for a while. The fatigue is totally different, however. When I am extremely fatigued from the ME/CFS (or lack of sleep as of late) I find that I don’t think I can last another minute feeling this bad.
So which is worse for you? Do you haveME/CFS, Fibromyalgia or do you have both?
What do you do to distract yourself from the pain or fatigue?
