... tired. None of the meds are helping... even with the classic symptoms. I've tried Enbrel, Humira and anti-inflammatories.
There are many studies that strongly suggest a metabolic component to PSA, fatigue is a common complaint for most people with this diesease, then add the meds which have there own side effects that include fatigue and depending on the severity of your disease there are the multitudes of additional autoimmune diseases that are called secondary disease that happen to us that cause fatigue as well.
I have found that taking gentle care of yourself we can enjoy our lives more, we have fragile constitutions and it's ok to admit it and not feel shamed by it, rest often walk slower don't let someone else set the pace for you when your out and about and keep your weight down because that to will add stress and fatigue to your body as the disease
This Is a serious disease and so much more then just a skin condition and swollen deformed joints, it can affect your brain, your heart and your lungs so of course there is going to be fatigue. We have an increased risk for pneumonia so winter may be more difficult for us as a result.
They are still learning about this disease it's still evolving so the more we talk about our differing symptoms, the more we help doctors understand all of the disgnostic symptoms we actually have and the more we help those still undiagnosed and suffering needlessly.
