Hello - I would like to say what a wonderful site this is, which I found by accident and I am really glad that I did. I have recently been diagnosed with RA and am finding it difficult at times to come to terms with.
I was originally on a high dose of steroids and have now been prescribed methotrexate of which I have now been on for about 4 months.
Is it normal to be so tired after doing activities such as gardening and even ironing? After doing anything slightly strenuous I really suffer for it the next day and can hardly get out of bed. It is so difficult to motivate myself to get moving.
Any tips and advice would be most welcome.
