  • Trying to figure out if my symptoms are related to medications I am taking or due to chronic fatigue syndrome which I have been diagnosed with and maybe fibromyalgia or lumbar stenosis or MS.

  • From this study (10 months ago):

  • The only time the pain is partially releaved is lying in a prone position with heat on my posterior neck and the back of my head. The pain strats in my shoulders and neck and radiates up the back of my head.

  • From this study (3 years ago):

  • SO far the nuvigil makes my brain and body feel awake for the first time in a long time. No jitters or shakes or feelings of extreme energy. By 7 or 8, I am sleepy but can stay awake. The only adverse side effect is headaches, which get better when I remind myself to eat, and loss of appetite. Still waiting to see which if any adverse reactions occur with the yaz and Nuvigil, since Nuvigil reduces the effect of hormonal BC.

    Just a warning, the "adverse effects" you would see on Yaz and Nuvigil would be pregnancy. Just a heads up if that's not in your plan right now, as my doctor told me when I was on hormonal BC and Nuvigil to either always use condoms or get an IUD, since it renders hormonal BC pretty much ineffective. I opted for the Paragard IUD.
