Hi all, new here, so forgive me if I am posting out of turn!
I have been on humira for 7 Months now. My disease has totally settled down, which is great
I have had no problems with the drug except for fatigue.
Has anyone else experienced this?
I am a fit and healthy (at the moment) 28 year old. I eat a balanced diet and exercise daily.
I find myself falling asleep in front of the TV or really struggling to get out of bed in the mornings.
Has anyone got any ideas of how to over come this?

Have you have any bloodwork done lately? Possible anemia maybe? Another thought is have you had your B12 tested lately? That might be another cause. But to be honest, I think many of us suffer with fatigue more than anything else. Kinda nature of the beast. Good luck!

Hi Nanners, thanks for your reply. Had blood work done recently, nothing unusual. Will get the B12 tested. Thanks!
