help with fatigue

Hi everybody, just a quick question?

im on enbrel and mtx and have been for 2 years now, my RA is under great control but im still soooo tired! I work shifts which i know is not the best but money good. I just wondered if there was anything out there from people experiences that i could take to help combat this and stop a bit of the tirdness at least, and that wont interfere with these immunosuppressants we are on??

  • Hi, My husband used to work shifts, and he was always tired even thought he did not have RA! What used to help him was to have a nap in the afternoon when not on shift or if he was on the early one. When I say 'nap' he used to go out for about 2-3 hours.

    Hope this helps.

    Hopefully more people will be along soon with some tips for you, but in the meantime it may be worth having a read of the 'Fatigue and RA' article on our website:
