Hi there, I'm just trying to grapple with the effects of fatigue in RA. What causes such debilitating tiredness? I can't quite understand the connection! Inflamation, swollen, stiff and painful joints but what causes the fatigue? I'm lucky at the moment I'm not on medication at present as I'm going through all the paperwork, blood checks etc prior to going on Bioligics. I'm only on low dosage (Pred) my wrists hurt plus a small amount of selling but nothing to complain about. However my fatigue is dreadful. Why does RA cause such high levels of fatigue?
