Re: Why does Sjogren's cause fatigue? is it the inflammation it causes?
Yeah not sure, my rheumatologist said my fatigue isn't from sjogrens. I think for me its from back pain, and feeling crumby all day. Taking pain killers, and exercize, and pacing myself definitely help.
My doc did go through a list of how sjogrens causes fatigue, but its hard to remember now. I know one was if it is affecting the liver, I think the second was if ESR was high, somehow this caused fatigue, and the third way I really can't recall, but since I don't have any of these right then, it was unrelated...so it made sense. She was pretty awesome at explaining stuff but unfortunately my memory sucks :Q
