- Loved one DX
Hi everyone! My mom (PBP, dx a year ago) has been dealing with extreme fatigue recently. Fatigue and lack of energy was one of her first major symptoms, but it's really ratcheted up in the past two weeks. She spends the whole day in bed, and short trips to the bathroom with the walker deplete her energy entirely. She's able to sit up in bed after a PEG meal, but it's obvious that she's exhausted and uncomfortable. I saw another post mention that even sitting in a chair can be sucking away PALS' energy, which I hadn't thought of. Does anyone have any suggestions for increasing energy? Totally open to suggestions ranging from different chairs or pillows to food/nutrition. Thanks so much!
