Transforming fatigue services for people with inflammatory arthritis

Brynmor Member Posts: 1,755

Researchers have found that physical activity and talking therapies can improve fatigue in people with inflammatory arthritis and related conditions.

Despite its impact, fatigue is difficult to treat in people with IRDs because it doesn’t respond to medicines and can often go unrecognised by clinicians.

Our LIFT study has found for the first time that non-drug treatments such as physical activity and talking therapies delivered by non-specialists can significantly improve fatigue across this entire group of inflammatory conditions.

    hello @Cupoftea99 and welcome to the Community. We are a friendly and supportive group and I hope that will be your experience as well.

    There are lots of discussions on the Community, about being diagnosed and what next; treatments and side effects; good stories of people coping and succeeding; and some just general chat.

    So please keep posting and maybe tell us a bit more about you (only what you are comfortable with) and others may join in to help and support if needed.

    Best wishes

    Peter (moderator)
