If you have rheumatoid arthritis (RA), it is very likely that you will experience chronic fatigue at some stage.
Chronic fatigue is not like tiredness. It can last for days and no amount of sleep will relieve it. It can come on without warning and prevent people from doing planned activities and everyday tasks.
One of the problems with fatigue is that it is an invisible symptom. Those who come into contact with you may have no idea of how you are feeling unless you tell them.
To coincide with the launch of our second national RA Awareness Week in June, the National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society will be publishing some new research to better articulate the range of impacts that chronic fatigue has on peoples' lives with recommendations for government action.
The information gathered from this online survey will also help to inform a separate booklet on fatigue to help people better understand and cope with this invisible symptom.
Please help by completing this survey. The more we know about your experience, the more we can do to support people with rheumatoid arthritis.
