Recently been diagnosed with RA with very high positive CCP test. Am 31 so has took me by surprise a bit. I'm on two types of medications hydroxychloroquine and sulfadiazine. I must admit touch wood not had many bad side effects with them.
Does anyone find they just now and then feel really really unwell? It's like having flu but without the blocked nose, sore throat, sore chest, coughing and spluttering and no energy whatsoever!
Apart from the obvious flare ups which is awful the one main thing struggling with is having no energy and just want to sleep all the time. Even if have enough sleep I am still struggling. Got to point where I'm struggling to keep my eyes open at work till around lunchtime. I asked my RA consultant and basically in so many words can't do anything about that and apparently when tablets start working and go into remission it should start to ease. Does anyone have any tips? I'm desperate for any helps at all.
