Does anyone else have a really hard time getting out of bed in the morning?  I'm so tired when I get up in the morning it's just terrible.  Sometimes I just cannot get myself out of the bed.  I'm usually ok once I get a shower and get going but the morning fatigue is a real issue right now.  Is there anything some of you have done to combat this?  Even after a good nights sleep it doesn't seem to matter.

Are you sleeping well at night? Do you wake up often? Sometimes even if you think you're not waking up, you still are due to various reasons - too hot or cold, muscle aches, bad mattress etc. This could account for your morning fatigue. How many hours are you getting? Sometimes if you get too much, it can make you more tired.

I know that i'm more exhausted right now because the prednisone is making me pee more throughout the night... i don't know if that's normal... but i've really noticed it.

I have been dealing with the same problem... I can't drag myself out of bed in the morning, but once I'm up and moving I'm okay... I can't figure it out - I thought it might be iron deficiency, but apparently my iron levels are ok...
