I was recently diagnosed with RA even though bloodwork was normal and was previously diagnosed with just about everything else under the sun!!! I have already been taking ultram since 2006 due to 3 back surgeries and Provigil and Trazadone almost as long due to probs sleeping at night and being alert during the day. I take a combo of vits including a multi, fish oil/omega 3, niacin, biotin, calcium with D and Vit B12 shots once a week. Up until the beginning of this year I was working out in a gym 3 days a week and feeling great....then I had horrible sinus infection that started towards end of winter and couldn't get rid of and never felt good again. Became too tired to work out and had pain throughout body. Was put on Prestiq for fibromyalgia...no help....switched to Lyrica and had little more energy but no decrease in pain....then sent to Rheumatologist and put on nabumetone with no help and then offered etodolac or plaquenil.....just want to feel better but don't know what combo works best....just don't understand how I can be on a drug that is used to treat narcolepsy and still so tired all the time and what I should do next.....just want to get back to work outs which were mild to begin with and not sleep through my weekends anymore.....sick of pain and fatigue....too young for this!View Thread
