hi, im a 44 year old mum of 2 kids, ive had R/A for 8 years, which is now severe. im on all sorts of medication, including co-dydramol, tramol, morphine patches, methotrexate injections, and retuximab (mabthera) infusions. my tiredness is spireling out of control ! its now so bad that it takes all my energy just to throw my legs out in the morning, my limbs feel super heavy and i now find myself making excuses not to go out, because im just so exhausted all the time. im now being weaned off retuximab, as it hasnt worked and going on a new infusion in december. if the kids come down with a cold i dread it as i know that within 4-5 days, ill come down with a chest infection. i can cope with all that, but this exhaustion is really getting me down, any ideas please ???? many thanks, dee x
