Hi everyone, I have had RA for 11 years and been on humira/mtx combination for the last 5 years. RA now well managed generally but I do have some damaged/fused joints and secondary osteoarthritis so sometimes bad pain from that but not the RA.
But I am finding things very hard going at the moment, I am exhausted just from day-to-day things. I have glands going up and down, cuts on my fingers that take weeks to heal, aching all over, headaches, fuzzy brain, lost words. I am sure I should not feel this exhausted from what I actually DO! I feel like I am walking through treacle.
I try very hard (with 2 children) to not do too much extra but I don't seem to be able to get through the day any more, I just stumble along until I can collapse aching in bed about 9.30pm (so not as it if it late). Is this usual? Is this just getting older and not managing as much? I don't know, I feel like I am always complaining that yet again I don't feel well. All my usual mtx monthly bloods are fine.
I think I need to see the dr don't I? It is very hard when I look ok (mostly) but feel pretty rubbish. I was wondering if anyone else still had this complete exhaustion even though the RA is technically stable?
