Hi, I am new to the group. I am currently on Methotroxate and thankfully this appears to keep flare ups at bay so I am incredibly lucky. However, one of the things I really suffer with is tiredness. I have spoken to my consultant about it and he was very unsympathetic telling me that RA doesn't affect you in that way. Does anyone else suffer with the same and if so, how do you help yourself. I am nearly 55 years old. I eat a well balanced diet, regularly walk our dog and try to look after myself the best I can. Someone suggested Enchinacea to help with low immune system but when I looked into it, it says that you have to be careful which ones you buy as some are useless. I have been off work now for two weeks with a respiratory tract infection and have spent most of that time sleeping. If anyone suffers with anything similar please help as this is really getting me down. Thank you for reading my post.
