I will be going to see my FM doctor in a couple weeks. I want to ask him if I can try Ritalin for my fatigue, but I am afraid to ask.....also I need something for pain. He prescribes Ultram, but it does nothing. He has gone as far as to prescribe Darvocet when I told him I need something stronger. But thats like taking 2 sugar pills instead of one! I will be taking a vacation with my family later this month. Vacations dont agree with me. I am so tired I cant do anything and have so much pain from traveling and anxiety. I know some people dont agree on taking something like Ritalin for the fatigue. But I need something..... Any suggestions on how to ask my Dr. about these things? Thanks!
