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.
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?
Hi all! I am 22 and I've had RA for a year. I must say- it hasn't disrupted my life too much until my last rheum visit a month ago. My inflammation markers were down but the arthritis has traveled to my hips, so my rheum wanted to up my mtx dose and also add another DMARD. I tried sulfasalazine but got so sick on it. After 10 days, I stopped it, but it feels like my body has been in such a dip since then. I am suffering from debilitating fatigue- I can sleep for 8 hours and then be awake for two… read more
I would like to hear about your Cimzia experience.
I began Cimzia injections 3 1/2 weeks ago. The day of, I get very nauseous and a BAD headache. For the next 4-5 days I have nausea, extreme fatigue, and intestinal problems. 🙄 I've also noticed hair thinning.
I am hoping that my body gets used to it and that this med does the trick.
Has anyone heard the theory that Epstein Barr Virus may be to blame for RA? I had Mono as a teen and then a reactivation in my 20s. I have had tests since showing that I only have antibodies, not an active infection but from what I've read, it can hide in the organs and joints. I'm now 44. Just wondering what others' experience is with EBV. It's definitely the main cause of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome but I haven't heard as much about the link with RA. Thank you.

Hello everyone. I just want to know if feeling fatigue most days is normal.? I know that before I started Methotraxate I was not feeling so fatigued. When I ask my RA doc if this is from RA or meds he said" it could be many things". I would love to know how others are doing and if they have fatigue too. Is being tired so often a concern or is this something I have to live with.? I take 6 MTX pills once a week. Pain and swelling is mild. Fatigue is the biggest issue at the moment.
