Hi all. I'm 69 and was diagnosed with RA about 18 months ago. I also have mobility issues following Spinal Surgery 3 years ago - just to add insult to injury!
I've noted considerable problems with fatigue and poor sleep patterns - dropping off in the afternoon or early evening for several hours then going to bed and waking up at "silly o'clock".
I've spoken to my GP about this and she says that this sort of fatigue "goes with the territory I'm afraid".
My RA Physiotherapist says I should pace myself (whatever that means!) and have a couple of half-hour dozes during the day so that I get some quality sleep at night.
Is my experience typical of those shared by other RA Forum members?
Oh, and while I think about it - Happy New Year to you all!!!
