Yes, I've been there way too often. What meds are you on? Do you get routine blood checks? Has your liver been checked recently? When my liver acts up (sometimes from meds), my fatigue is 10-fold. I feel like I have narcolepsy (sorry if I chopped that word up!)
However, fatigue from RA can't be scoffed at - it can be pretty debilitating.
Do you take folic acid and b complex supplements? The can help sometimes, especially since some RA meds deplete the folic acid in your body.
my empathy to you! RA fatigue is a very different and not like any other sort of fatigue. despite the number of hours or quality of sleep...sleeping is not the issue. i mean, sleep is great sure....but ya know what i mean. RA fatigue is relentless. it's an exhaustion of the body.
personally, some days i'll get so fatigued thatif i don't sit down or lay down JUST THEN! i'll fall down!
i know what your sayin' my friend. hang in there.
I tell people, "i was born tired!"
I would suggest adding a B complex vitamin to your supplements as well. Take it in the morning and take the folic acid at night, or vice versa.
I crashed for most of Sunday as well.
