Health Tip: Managing Arthritis-Related Fatigue

Ease your schedule when symptoms flare

(HealthDay News) -- Fatigue can be a significant problem for people with arthritis, but there are things you can do to help manage your symptoms.

The Arthritis Foundation offers these suggestions:

  • Adjust your schedule to accommodate symptoms, such as starting chores after morning fatigue, pain and stiffness have eased.
  • Eat lighter and more frequent meals.
  • Get regular, moderate exercise and make time to get plenty of rest.
  • Learn to prioritize, and do the important things first. Put off what you don't have the energy to do.
  • Don't be shy about asking others to help when necessary.
