  Fatigue is a mainstay symptom of Chiari...we do not get restorative sleep...never feel refreshed and many have insomnia.

If u were sick it may have caused a flare of symptoms to hit u all at once, but what u r talking about is all Chiari related.

Wow. That makes so much sense to me. I'm forever tired no matter how much sleep I get. I have found lotion & bath foam at Bath & body it does help me sleep longer.

  With my meds I was RX'd this summer I was told to take antihistamines
I have a non drowsey formula to take during the day, and I take the reg one that causes drowsiness b4 bed and it helps me sleep much better.

Is ur lotion a lavender scent? Lavender is a calming scent even used for dogs in a stressful situation....

Same here completly tired. I took a bath with my DH sitting by the tub, because every time I takes bath I fall asleep in it. But I was so much in pain that I still took one and my DH woke me up to tell me that I sleeped a good 10 min in the bath.

I still walk around the house like I never get sleep, Believe me I sleeped 8h last night.

Always so tired.

Its called Aromatherapy Sleep, Honey vanilla dream Lullaby & good night. It says A delicate blend of Essential oils mingles with warm honey & soothing vanilla for sweet dreams. I paid around 3.00 dollars for it on sale. Full price is 14.00 which I would buy! I have fell in love with it. My legs cramp really bad & i rub it on & it eases.

Yes, Fatigue  seems to be a constant battle. Some nights I can sleep sound or  I think I do only to wake feeling as if I have gotten no real rest at all. I also am tired all the time, my husband makes comments about this and says, you would sleep all the time if you could! But he's right I never feel completely refreshed from sleep. Hats off to you Chiari! lol
