Research and new developments for fatigue

Most new drug treatments for inflammation in arthritis are now also tested to see if they reduce fatigue. Arthritis Research UK have funded research into talking therapies specifically for arthritis-related fatigue and shown that this can help reduce its impact. Researchers are hoping to test if these can also be delivered by the rheumatology team rather than a psychologist.

Arthritis Research UK are also funding a review of the interventions that can be offered to help combat fatigue in people with rheumatoid arthritis.
