The Importance of Sleep with Rheumatoid Arthritis

Write what you know, right? So I wrote about how important sleep is when you have RA:

"Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) affects all areas of your life, including the ability to participate in your family, community, and work. It also affects your appetite, moods, and the ability to get a good night’s sleep. Anxiety about life with RA, pain, depression, and other symptoms can all contribute to sleep disturbances, which can increase fatigue during your waking hours. Getting enough sleep can have a profound impact on quality of life for people with RA."
