This is a common problem. HS is a chronic inflammatory condition and the chronic inflammation in your body will make you tired. Plus having to deal with it all the time is tiring.

The key answer is really to get control of the condition which is obvious, I know, but is the main way to solve the problem long term. Your doctor can advise on best treatments for you but if you are able to reduce levels of inflammation you should feel less exhausted.

Other lifestyle measures to improve your energy levels may be useful and may help the HS. These include losing weight if you are overweight, stopping smoking if this applies to you, and eating healthily. Taking more exercise can also help but this is often a problem for HS sufferers because of the nature of the condition.

Hope this helps.
