Fatigue is a common problem in rheumatoid arthritis (RA), experienced by the majority of patients, with fatigue scores that are often higher than pain scores. Despite this, patients feel fatigue has been largely ignored by clinicians. This article provides a personal overview of the journey of RA fatigue from ‘nonexistence’ to ‘hot topic’ and looks toward a time when fatigue might return to nonexistence because it is routinely and effectively managed.
