My doctor wants me to have a nap every day in order to fight fatigue. I am on a disability and while my daughters are in school, I am able to rest. I also go to bed when my kids do.

My new Rheumatologist has put me on several medications to help me sleep and thus I have less fatigue, although on my exercise days I still feel completely drained after exercising. Can only do so much/ Anyway, what he did was put me on Hydrocodone/asp, Trazaodone, and Donital (which is an IBS medication but it knocks me out). We have had to play around with doses till we found what works. But it really does help me sleep through the night so I wake up refreshed as we should and not feeling exhausted when I wake up.

My new insurance wouldn't cover provigil so i am now trying something new. It's definitely not as good but I'm also really angry about work so i think that can definitely deter feeling better. It's hard to stay positive but we have to if we're to cope with our disease right? Hope all is well.

I am doing much better now. The fatigue can be awful. Got my exercises in yesterday. went to both pharmacies for prescriptions and forgot to look at the energy drink at Walmart.

How are you feeling today? I know that this abnormal heat has really become bothersome for many folks. I am used to it but hey, I live in Texas. Still, I cannot wait for fall. One of my new favorite things to do is to go GeoCaching. It's like a real treasure hunt. I think it would be good for all of us to do but it is too hot!!!
If you would rather text me you can....
Hang in there buddy!

I well look at Walmart. I have to go there to pick up my Enbrel tomorrow.

Today has been a wasted day. Fatigue hit hard. I was fine til I went outside with Abbie to let her play and the heat just hit me and then the fatigue did.

I really like them. I have also been purchasing the Walmart brand energy packs that you add to water. Only $1.97 compared to Mio at $3.97. Exact same stuff! Try it if you have a WalMart around or check next to the Mio...most stores have copied it now :)

Miss ya!

Hoe do you like Mio Energy? Both for flavor and fatigue fighter.

I have always said for me the worst symptom besides the pain, is the fatigue. I had become a big fan of caffeine but I knew that was not the answer. I have started drinking Mio Energy. It tastes great- you add it to water! We all need as much water as possible. While it does contain caffeine it hardly has the Taurine found in most energy drinks. I am going to spend the next week trying different foods and/or vitamins to see what works the best. I always recommend B12 as well. I look forward to your comments and any educated advice is always appreciated!
