I suffer from periodic insomnia. I have not slept much for the past week or so. Perplexing part is though I am tired throughout the day I have had no symptoms of RA, i.e. pain and inflammation, stiffness in the morning. So last night I slept very well 6-7 hours of good restful sleep. Woke up this morning feeling like a bus ran over me. As of this writing it's about 12 noon. Symptoms have dissipated. I have dealt with RA for 18 years now and I just don't understand its, let's say, randomness.
