I know, right?

I'm finally getting around to catching up on the posts I missed while being in Hawaii. This post really hit home.

Fatigue is a huge problem of mine. In fact, I hit the wall about 5 days ago. Even going to lay on the beach was exhausting. Who knew? To add to that, the 11+ hour red eye flying experience I had on Wed/Thurs just about did me in.

The flick of a switch is how mine almost always sets in. One minute I'm fine. The next I'm dragging around 250 lbs weights on all my limbs.

I'm finally starting to have a bit of energy today. Super duper!

Thanks for all the great posts you write Sara!

I am so glad to know that I am not alone! I have been going home to bed at 6 pm every night for 3 days now! It happens to me several times a month; I just sleep all the time. I've had RA for 15 years now and been very fortunate in that I don't have much pain but oh, the fatigue is just overwhelming! When I was on Enbrel it was much better but I almost died from an infection so I have stopped it, so, I am back to the sleeping sickness. I guess its better than death...but not much.

S- sorry that i apparently never responded to this comment! I agree- the fatigue is definitely my most persistent symptom. sigh...

Dana- you are absolutely not alone! scary about enbrel and the infection...that's what I'm on, but so far (knock on wood) have reacted ok. The sleeping sickness is a good moniker for RA! Have you tried anything like acupuncture?
