Fatigue and Spondylitis

Posted on April 27, 2018

"I feel ok not totally without pain but, I judge a good day because I haven’t used my cane yet today, the one thing I’m dealing with is very bad fatigue, I feel like I’m in a fog. Just typing this I have fallen asleep twice. Bad fatigue!!" -A member on MySpondylitisTeam

On MySpondylitisTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with axSpA and other types of spondylitis, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Fatigue is one of the most discussed subjects.

Here are some conversations about fatigue:

I changed my medication and I can finally get through my days without hitting the proverbial brick wall of fatigue.

I am never pain-free so I never expect to be. I just wish I had the energy to take care of myself and my home.

The sleep study is done. I feel fatigued even though I napped prior.

I was able to get a nap in this morning. Now I'm feeling pretty good and hoping to clean today!

Does anyone have so much fatigue and brain fog that they feel drunk and mix up the vocabulary? Is this a spondylitis thing?

Can you relate?
