Gabapentin with duluxotine (cymbalta) is used to fight off nerve pain. It can cause tiredness but more likely its your pain and lack of good sleep.

I have RA, AS, Chronic pain, Chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia. I recently had two cervical operations. I have other disorders but the chronic fatigue is what affects me the most. I take aderrall for ADD and it helps with energy levels. I don’t mind the pain as much as not having energy. 10 years with 7-8 pain all day. I am grateful because it could always be worse. I am frustrated at the lack of respect that providers have with people with chronic pain and fatigue. We are not the ones that created the opiate crisis. However, doctors won’t give you pain killers without taking some of your self worth away. Any suggestions? I am giving up very soon

.Paul, I am sorry for your heart and hope they find out what is wrong. I have neck ostio and light headiness. I believe that is from blood flow. I am still working to see what is going to happen. I will keep you in my prayers.

I have cervical neck problems and tired mostly in the morning. Maybe from laying on my back at night. I have thyroid issues and adjusting my meds. When you have neck problems it is sometimes circulation and also tinnitus. Hope you feel better.
