Fatigue And Weakness.

Fatigue And Weakness.

I'm curious to hear how all of you deal with fatigue. I go weeks to months extremely fatigued. With or without fatigue I get weak. Also, I get leg weakness. The leg weakness is ridiculously interfering in my life.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Does Anyone Else Struggle With Severe Fatigue And Brain Fog?

Does Anyone Else Struggle With Severe Fatigue And Brain Fog?

I've noticed that many people with RA are able to work, exercise and be fairly functional. I struggle to drag myself through the day. I do some walking and low impact exercise 2 to 3 times a week but between feeling tired and muscle weakness, it's tough. Then on the days when I do exercise, I'm a zombie afterwards. I quit working 10 years ago because I wasn't able to function mentally after a few hours. I often forget words and lose track of conversations. So frustrating!
Is it just me?
