    Default medications for pain and fatigue

    have you found a good medication for joint pain accompanied with fatigue? I find that when I have the joint pain, my limbs feel heavy and im tired.

    my doctor has prescribed tramadol, which I honestly do not find to be helpful. i take over the counter meds such as ibuprofen or advil and those help a bit, but there are times when nothing helps.

    Hi Marie,

    I have already answered you in another post of yours.
    The only thing, that helps me with my pain, is MTX and Prednisone. I was on Plaquenil for several months and it did not help me at all. My Rheumy prescribed Tramadol a couple of months ago, not only does it not help with the pain, it makes me feel weird.

    I may have been dealt a bad hand, but at least I'm still playing with a full deck. ( most of the time anyway).
