Re: Ugh... the fatigue !!!
Nuetontin, Lyrica & Cymbolta made me more exhausted, like lethargic where you are too tired to move at all & just lay there... I'm on Savella now & it doesn't do that. I didn't know the meds did that until I switched to Savella & exhaustion isn't as bad. Bad thing is that savella makes me sweat... Ugh
I had the fatigue for 11 yrs before fibro pain set in. My body felt heavy, tired & sore but not like it does now. One Dr said I have Chrinic Fatigue while another says Chronic Fatigue is a symptom of the fibro. Not sure...
I take Tramadol for pain. It takes the edge off & I seem to not be as tired on e it kicks in. But takes 2 hours to do anything & doesn't do much. I then take my muscle relaxer & that helps. Then tramadol again alittle bit later. I do rely on these more now but not taking meds unless I had to made fibro rule my life. I hate taking them but do feel like I'm living alittle more...
