Sometimes I feel like I need a sign that I carry around with me that says 'I get tired easily so I can't always do what others can do and it sometimes takes me a bit longer!' A lot to go on a sign but I feel like i need it! My exhaustion is coming back now which means only one thing I'm due for a flare up! Just hope it's not that long this time round, people don't seem to understand that when I'm exhausted I can't run around after them all the time which is what I have to do unfortunately at work! Well I can do it I just have to take longer about it. I predict a meeting with my manager about me leaving work for the night staff coming up soon :(

    Fatigue is certainly part and parcel of an inflammatory arthritis and you have a demanding job. Even so, you seem to be flaring quite a lot. Have you thought of contacting your rheumatology helpline for advice? I hope the weekend will prove a bit more restful for you.

    Hi, I understand how you feel, I don't know how many times I've had my husband say to me 'what's up?' and I say I'm tired. I could do with a sign instead of saying it all the time. I've been low and fatigued on and off since December. It is something I've learned to live with, when I can I have siesta in the afternoon. But with you working it would be hard to do that. I do feel for you working and dealing with Arthritis as well.

    Im with SW on this one, I would give your rheumy a ring or whoever you see, we put everything down to arthritis so maybe you need some bloods test to rule out other things..hope you feel a little better very soon..not sure about you but this hot weather doesn't suit my joints..and saps my energy
