Fatigue is common and burdensome in Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA). Though RA fatigue progression varies significantly between individuals, to date, published analyses have only considered average changes in fatigue. The aim of the current study was to determine if it is possible to distinguish participants who follow distinct trajectories of fatigue reporting over time and thus potentially inform to whom specific management should be targeted.
