Pain & Fatigue Management

Pain & Fatigue Management

Any tips on managing pain and fatigue during the work week? My Dr told me to stay away from things like Aleve and I'm struggling while we are trying to get my steroid dosage lower.

I really love mine. They asked me about all my hot joints and explained the process and I left my first appointment with a game plan to get me under control. I had read a lot of bad stories about them and feel like I lucked out with mine! Bring someone though because it is a lot of information!

I thought the exercise stuff was bunk, I WAS WRONG. Exercise is where it's at. You got to remember to take it easy. I am having to learn that the hard way. Walking, water aerobics it works.

I finally will see this RA doctor in December. My original referral was given to me in June. But there were a series of screw ups, out of my control, so December is the earliest.
I'm trying to face the reality of RA now, so when I see the doctor I know what I'm facing.

I get up and pace and stretch every hour or so but I'll have to try to see if it helps my wrists and ankles which get hit the hardest.
