Fatigue is a feeling of both physical and mental tiredness or exhaustion that can often affect people with arthritis. When we are fatigued, it can make even the everyday tasks seem impossible.
Managing fatigue starts with working out the things that may be causing it, and then speaking with your healthcare team about ways they can help you manage it. There are also things you can do to help conserve energy and allow you to keep doing the things you want to do.
Our friends at Versus Arthritis have put together a great online resource which explores the things you can do to reduce the impact of fatigue. They also explain the features of fatigue, how it is measured, and its causes.
