Morning Fatigue

Morning Fatigue

Anyone have suggestions on how to help with morning fatigue. It has progressively gotten worse over the last couple of months. Doesn’t matter how little or how much i sleep, i wake more tired than i was when i went to sleep. Takes about 2 hours to get functioning. It is not like the morning stiffness i used to have before medication. I have been on humira almost 3 years, 1 injection a week.

My naturopath changed my folic acid and taking real folate now. Feeling better, folic acid is lab created and the body does not use it well. Hang in there!

Trexall

Trexall

Hi I am new here and been on some of the drugs talked about for six months and trexall for two months, how do you know that's it really doing the job well ? I think I have had RA for quite some time and kinda dealt with it over the years.

Hi. I am on the following meds
5mg prednisone

I have been on Celebrex for a year now with no problems. It was a lifesaver for me I wasn’t able to do anything, helped so much with pain and inflammation. I’m only on 60 mg.

Does Anyone Find Relief From Hand And Finger Pain With Creams?

I cannot use NSAIDS or aspirin derivatives. Looking for something that is a counterirritant. Like camphor or menthol.

Does Methotrexate Wear Off In Between Doses?

Does Methotrexate Wear Off In Between Doses?

Hi everyone,
I take methotrexate (orally) on Friday nights. From Saturday to Wednesday, the pain is a lot less. I can also go down to 15mg of prednisone. By Wednesday night, I can already feel a difference and I need to go back up to 20mg of prednisone on Thursday morning or else I wouldn’t be able to put any weight on my foot. Is it possible that the methotrexate is wearing off?
Thank you!!
