i know this subject has been touched on before but I couldn't find the answer and maybe someone can help.
I know we are all at different places in the disease process, but has anyone dealt with
EXTREME FATIGUE. I am in a flare right now with +++ pain and swelling everywhere (in most joints). My current sleep pattern goes something like this. Up at 0730 with the kids, back to bed from 0930 to 1130. I then nap again from 1:00pm-3:00pm, then usually up from 3pm until
11-12pm. Basically I am sleeping about 12hrs a day. Is this normal with RA and Fibro?? Is there something I could take as in a vitamin or supplement??? I know many of my meds can cause sleepiness or drowsyness but I'm not sure if there is any I can not take.
Any suggestions would be appreciated!!!!
Thanks again in advance for everyones support on this site!
Have a great weekend.
