Fatigue and RA

Posted on March 12, 2018

Rheumatoid Arthritis can make you feel tired all the time. A myRAteam member called RA “a debilitating fatigue” that doesn’t go away with sleep or rest. “I’m so fatigued that when I sit back and relax, two hours later I’m still fatigued and [wide] awake,” one shared. “I think I could tolerate hand pain over this fatigue,” proclaimed another. Sharing your symptoms with those facing similar challenges can provide comfort, support — and even sources of relief.

On myRAteam, the social network and online support group for those living with rheumatoid arthritis, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Fatigue is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are a few question-and-answer threads about fatigue:
