Find support for low mood to help fatigue
You may find that your fatigue makes you feel low or even depressed. It often helps to talk about negative feelings and thoughts, so it could be useful to speak to your GP or rheumatology team, or your friends and family. Support groups are also available – talk to your rheumatology team about organisations in your area.
There are several kinds of support for low mood, such as talking therapies (available as individual or group session, in person or over the internet) or a short course of drug treatment, some of which not only help with low mood but may also ease pain and improve sleep. The first step is finding out what help or self-help might suit you best, so talk with your GP.
