I am newly diagnosed with Seronegative RA and Sjorgrens and I can't believe how tired I am. Some days I am not too bad, like yesterday, so I drove to my sons which is about 65 miles away and back again and by the time I got home I just wanted to sleep with overwhelming tiredness and I did!
Today I got up and could barely weightbear on my feet as they were so painful and again I am so tired and my eyes have been sore all day. feeling like this but I can't financially afford not to work
I am just wondered if this is fairly typical of my illnesses? I have been off work for 7 weeks now due to swollen knuckles and soles of my feet. Pains in elbows etc. I am going back this week even though I am still feeling poorly but financialy need too.I am 60 and have put al this down until it got so bad to just advancing years.
Pehaps someone can assure me this is fairly typical as I get worried there is something else wrong with me.
Many thanks for reading.
