Insomnia and RA

Posted on March 21, 2018

Getting a good night’s sleep is often a struggle with RA. Endless nights without shut-eye can also cause a lot of anxiety. As one sleep-deprived member of the myRAteam put it: “I am up most of the night with leg pain. I could cry all the time.” You don’t have to suffer alone. Many people facing the same challenge have found a wide variety of remedies and practices that help them fall asleep and stay asleep.

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. Insomnia is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.
