I usually try to get a minimum of 9 hours a night but it's usually closer to 8. Most days this is sufficient but if I have a busy day, I usually need more that particular night or I'm dragging all the next day.

I get anywhere from 4-9 hours of sleep I would say. I am not a nap taker. Once in a blue moon, I will lay down on the couch for 15 min. or so, and feel better. I do take a prescrip. for sleep and that really helps me to calm down and get more hours, when I remember to take it! It's new to me, so I haven't gotten into the habit of it yet! My doctor told me that she thought it would be a good thing for me to get 9-10 hours of sleep at night, with having RA and with feeling so fatigued half the time.

Seven to eight. I have the luxury of being able to wake most days naturally, without setting an alarm.

I have said that I have had a lot of infections and sickness these 5 years since getting RA, sometimes lasting for months. When I get sick or just feel exhausted, I will take naps as needed.

I pretty much always get 8 hours-sometimes more ,occasionally less...as for fatigue...
it can be overwhelming at times, and then there are days I don't notice it at all.

I would have to say the average is somewhere around 5 - 6 hours but there are too many days when it's closer to two (and others where I sleep 9). It is enough to keep me functioning but necessarily without fatigue.

How much sleep do you typically get on an average day? Is it sufficient to keep the fatigue at bay?
