Re: Fatigue is really bad, should I see the Rhumatologist?

The cymbolta & Nuerontin made fatigue worst for me. I'd get up in the morning & lay on the couch exhausted. Exhaustion is nothing new but the exhaustion from the meds was worst. For instance, I'd soak in the bath & not want to move my arms or legs. I dreaded washing my hair or body because I was too exhausted to move...
With Savella I get right out of bed. Slowly because it hurts but I'm able to get up without laying there trying not to fall back asleep... It doesn't make me more tired like the others. My Rhum said I could take Lyrica also because of the constant pain but I don't want the side effects from it...
Careful with cymbolta, it really is a nightmare to Wein off of...
