Tired Of The Fatigue

Tired Of The Fatigue

Suggestions for fatigue? I feel like I could fall asleep all day but when it comes time for bed I'm wide awake. The daily fog is driving me crazy! Anyone have any new ideas to combat the fatigue?

I found myself getting addicted to sugar free red bull everyday. I'm interested in learning other means to fighting the fatique too.

I still haven't figured that one out! Once in a while I'll take Advil PM to help me sleep, especially if I know I have to get up early the next morning. It seems to help.
However, when I'm hurting I sleep in my recliner. That seems to take the pressure off the tender places.
Hope this helped.

I take Nuvigil for my sleep apnea and my CFS (FATIGUE) and it seems to help you have to get the right diagnosis or else it can be really expensive. I was told by my neurologist that sleep apnea and RA can go hand in had because of the inflation so I would get with PCP and see if they can refer you to a neurologist for a sleep study.
