I have had RA for nearly two years now. I have my good days and my bad, although usually they are 'in the middle'... as in, I've had worse, but had better!!
Anyway, I always have some swollen/painful joints and I'm used to that now, and I used to feel abit washed out and tired, but recently (last few months) I've been tired beyond tired, all the things I used to be able to mange (even when my RA was at its worst) I can no longer do because I'm just so exhausted. Yesterday I went food shopping and as a result couldn't get out of bed untill 3pm today - I did try - really - but my legs were so weak and the tirdness so overwhelming i couldn't mange it (and this is what its like when I try to do things). I also have blurred vision (not all the time), I feel really light headed, my body itches all over and I also have widespreed pain all over (not the normal joint pain), I have been to my doctors twice and each time I'm told 'well, you do have RA, so of course you wont feel well'.... maybe the doctor is right? maybe this is normal? its doesn't feel it though!!
Would be nice to hear if there are others out there feeling like this.
I currently take Cimzia anti TFn and steriods
