Constant fatigue

Daily, I am extremely tired. Does anyone have tips to help?

  1. I hear you, fatigue is one of the hardest symptoms to manage and nearly impossible to escape. We have several articles written my different patient leaders with tips for how they try to fight fatigue in their life: (1) https://lupus.net/living/fatigue-tips (2)https://lupus.net/living/manage-fatigue I hope some of these help! Know you are not alone!

      1. I stay tired as well. I try to get as much rest as I can but it just doesn't seem to be enough.

        1. , Lupus fatigue can be brutal and difficult to escape. Two of our patient leaders have shared in separate articles some tips that help them. I'll include the links in case they have any tips that might be useful to you on your journey: (1) https://lupus.net/living/manage-fatigue (2) https://lupus.net/living/fatigue-tips Wishing you a flare-free week!

      2. I struggle daily with fatigue. I just dunno how to handle it. Some days it's worse and I feel guilty for sleeping a lot. But, like that's one of the things that helps.

        1. I can definitely relate. I have released the guilt. I tell everyone around me lupus can take me down for a few days I hope you understand. and I leave it at that. Nothing helps but to go through it all. ~Racquel~ https://lupus.net team member
