Health Tip: Managing Arthritis-Related Fatigue

(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.
