From this study (6 days ago):
I have a history of Fibromyalgia with worsening symptoms that have become more sensitve in recent years in combination with Graves Disease that was treated with RAI therapy resulting in TSH level over 150 in 2009. This put me into a Thyroid Storm and I was very sick for 4 years. Since then I have never felt "great again" and suffer from pain and extreme/chronic fatigue all the time. I was dx with Pnemonia New Years Eve that took 4-5 weeks to for symptoms to subside that left me extremely drained with fatigue. I then was started the Ultram ER in January to combat the Fibromyalgia and Cervial Dystonia pain. In April I was found to have 2 Kidney Stones and over a 5 week period of pain this was finally resolved after surgery, stint placement and removal. This also caused more fatigue!! In the past 5 months I have gone from someone who could work and function to someone who cannot stay awake. I went from starting work 7-8am to dragging myself out of bed at 9-9:30am. I take naps in the daytime which is not new. I now take 2 adderall instead of 1 a day. Nothing is helping. I am concerned this is the Tramadol ER interacting with my Tirosint 100mcg and 112mcg as this seem to start in January even though I have had other illness'?? I take one of each dose every other day.
