Does depression cause fatigue or fatigue cause depression???

@A myRAteam Member, I have added you to my team.
I think fatigue and depression go hand in hand, so does RA and fatigue and depression.
Depression can cause changes in sleeping patterns, either not being able to sleep or sleeping more than usual.
From my experience RA and depression can both cause fatigue.
But of course sleeping all day doesn't help depression or RA, but getting enough sleep is important. Finding the right balance is very difficult.
I hope that this information is helpful.

Your not going crazy. I also have a problem with sleeping or in my case lack of. Your doctor is most likely correct as to little sleep in my case makes my depression and anxiety worse l don't know if you are on any other medications but I would have a word with your chemist. They are very good to get advice from. Hugs.
