Aim for sound sleep
In some cases, fatigue isn’t exclusively related to inflammation. Pain and discomfort can make it difficult to fall asleep at night, adding fuel to exhaustion. Your pain may also cause you to wake up during the night.
Here are a few ways you can ensure a more restful night’s sleep:
Go to bed at the same time every night, including weekends.
Take breaks throughout the day instead of naps.
Do relaxing pre-bed activities, such as deep breathing exercises.
Avoid sleeping in on the weekends or vacation days.
Take a warm bath before bed.
Add thicker curtains in your bedroom so the sunlight is less likely to awaken you.
Regulate the temperature in your bedroom.
Check for anemia
