Question about after flare is over

Jul 26, 2015 6:46 AM

I'd never had a flare last 41 days. It seems to be over but I'm EXHAUSTED!! I can't seem to sleep enough. Is this common?

The sleep issue I believe is very common, the length.....I don't know!
I've been in flare for several months now, with the odd better day thrown in. I had a remission back in Spring which was amazing. No tiredness, little pain, doing loads (for me). Since then I've gotten worse than previously and showing no signs of reprieve. 😢
The tiredness is most likely a symptom rather than an after effect. So be kind to yourself and rest up plenty. Hopefully this will pass too.😊

I'm up at 4am to go into work. I just want to lay in bed instead...

Sweetiepie, I have Sjogrens, Hypothyroidism, & Fibromyalgia, which all causes fatigue & so does the meds I take for them. Fighting through a flare does it too. I think it's a lose-lose situation, unless we rest when our bodies say to. Take extra vitamins (b) and drink green tea for a little energy boost. ((Hugs)) 🙏🌼
