Why is it that every evening I start feeling like crap

Every evening at around 5pm or so I start to feel run down... I feel cold, my body starts aching and just generally start feeling like crap. I seem to do better during the morning and day time hours. I wonder if I'm just tired. Does anybody else seem to have times of the day that they feel worse?

...It's pretty much the same with me, I do so much during the day cleaning or cooking or shopping that by the time 4 or 5 hits, I'm ready to just lay down and rest, not sleep or anything, but I do get to where the fatigue hits about that time as well, and I need to just relax and watch TV or read for a couple hours, but then by 8 p.m. I'm fine to go do laundry or dishes again...kind of comes in spurts!

I think after being awake a certain amount of time, considering we do not get much sleep,or at least I can't sleep much, our batteries burn out earlier than before this so we need to rest and recharge ourselves.Even tho I'm still not that active-spend most of time in bed, walk around apartment during day-got 20 solid minutes Sunday-my energy level is much lower than before, much lower as I rearely tired. We have to compensate by pacing ourselves aND resting up (or recharging ourselves) as needed.Hopefully this won't last forever--I'm at five weeks after surgery. Steve

because at 19 months out of treatment, if I do too much or get over tired, I get cold and have body aches. And it's the kind of cold that putting on extra clothes doesn't always help.

4 months out of treatment and I get tired in the afternoon, no chills or anything. Also depends on what I do that morning. If I do a lot of office work (computer work) for my husband I am more "brain dead".

I wonder how long it will last?

With everything your body is fighting, it is only natural to start to lose steam as the day wears on. Take the time to rest, listen to your body.

Hi Just 4:

Evenings are and have been the worst time of day for me for a long time now. I have this almost everyday during the workweek. The weekends are not so bad because I can get extra rest when I need it. I have all the symptoms you listed above. Sometimes when I'm feeling cold I'll take my temp and it will be up a bit, like 100.4 or 99.9. Have you taken your temp when you feel cold? It's not necessarily a fever because the body's temp rises in the evening. I usually take a motrin if it's up or sometimes I don't take anything. Just thought I would mention that. Sometimes I just need to lie down for awhile to re-charge. Hope you get to feeling better. Roy
