I find fatigue easier to treat when I first feel it come on: a little nap of 30 minutes to an hour can make a huge difference in the rest of the day.

I find that if I sleep 8-9 hours per night and take a mid-afternoon nap, I feel better overall.

If I wake up feeling sick all over, sometimes it is just better to give in and have a couch day.
