Fatigue is a common symptom of both autoimmune and autoinflammatory conditions, including Sweet's syndrome. It occurs as a result of the inflammation in the body that these conditions cause.
Fatigue can include a number of different symptoms, and can sometimes be difficult to manage. Symptoms include:
1. Tiredness or exhaustion - the kind you can’t ‘shake-off’.
2. Poor concentration or memory - ‘brain-fog’.
3. Flu-like symptoms - sometimes mistaken for a viral infection.
4. Limb heaviness - every movement seems like a real effort.
If you need some help managing your fatigue, Arthritis Research UK (ARUK) has some useful information: arthritisresearchuk.org/art...
You can find that when you are struggling with fatigue, others become impatient with you and make certain suggestions. For example, tell you to get a good night's sleep, don't get so stressed, get some fresh air, get more exercise, or eat a healthier diet. On the one hand, some of these things can make you feel a bit better, but on the other hand, they might not completely resolve your fatigue. REMEMBER! Fatigue is NOT the same as ordinary tiredness. It occurs as a result of inflammation in the body, so it really isn't your fault.
