Please contact your doctor immediately and report your symptoms. Stopping Cymbalta isn't easy and must be tapered off slowly, your doc should be directly involved if you're having difficulty.
~Call the pharmacy where you fill the Rx
~Call the nurse line of your medical insurance and discuss what you've said here
Please don't try to wait it out thinking it'll be better in a little while. Some people have had real problems tapering off Cymbalta. Getting a little help now might prevent something more serious. You might also want to delay the herb/supplement/OTC until you've had a chance to talk to a professional about what's happening.
I hope you find a solution for your problem and it settles down soon.
For some reason your post reminded me of this. Back before it was approved for fibro, Cymbalta was just another antidepressant, but then started being marketed as the one to prescribe for those who had depression with pain. Does anybody remember those TV commercials in the early-mid 2000s? "Sometimes depression hurts." It just clicked that was when we were crazy and didn't have anything really wrong with us, it was in our heads.
Well anyway, back then my doctor put me on Cymbalta at my therapist's request. My dr sent me to the therapist because I kept complaining about aches and pain. At that time I was unaware of fibromyalgia but now understand that was a big part.
Back to your question, Sarah. It worked and helped the pain. But the depression became huge so I needed to stop Cymbalta to take a different med. I remember that there was big concern with coming off the Cymbalta very slowly, so please look into that.
Sorry for the long rambling, but hope that maybe that version will be an answer for you. I didn't know about the FM and it worked really well.
I take them almost every day, they're my primary meds. The Tramadol has a bit of a serotonin effect that can also be helpful. I like them and would definitely recommend that you give them a try. Plus they're oldies and pretty cheap.
It's a pretty rough day so if this doesn't make sense, please ask questions and I'll get back w better answers.
One of the unpleasant things about having FM is the feeling that I'm drawing too much of the marriage energy and not contributing my fair share. I don't tell my husband about my day to day pain, it's boring and I don't like it being such a constant topic. He's a good man and probably wouldn't agree with that, but I used to be so strong and smart and capable.
There are better ways of getting your message to us, that would follow the guidelines. Blowing in and trampling over people's postings is rude.
Sending a bazillion posts with no real information in them about this TMS, but having links to other sites, feels risky and smacks of spam. And it's against the rules, like it or not.
We are not closed to new thoughts, but have been told that nothing is wrong, or here's a cure, too many times over the years and decades.
If you want us to learn about your miracle cure, then open your own discussion and write about it. Don't stomp on other posts and don't just put in a bunch of links. As Caprice would have said, click on the Orange "Post Now" button at the top of the page.
See? It's really pretty easy. Do it that or go away.View Thread
I had a message that you'd responded on Facebook, but Clockwork Healthcare had pulled it by the time I got there. Whatever we did must have annoyed them quite a bit, they don't have Comments open at all on their Facebook page. Dave from the Pain Management Community had also written something.
Anyway, their posts are gone from here and Pain Management, but are still on a lot of other boards.
I'm starting my Thanksgiving cooking today, pies, stuffing, veggies, and salad. My husband is on call around the clock and we don't always know when he'll be here, so I prep a lot ahead. Then I only need a few hours notice to get it on the table.
Sorry this took so long, my dad became ill so I was back there for awhile helping him out.
The Coobie bras are comfortable and a good alternative to the Aahs and Genies. They're more like a sports bra in their design, cut in that kind of shape, but the fabric is a very soft knit.
I was back in one of the areas where it's hot and humid, and the Coobies were more definitely comfortable than the Aahs that I'd brought. The bottom band doesn't strangle, but is still a little more snug than I'd like. I took a few snips in the band and that helped.
I really really like the thin straps and colors and prints. Did I mention the polka dots? And tie dye and pineapples?
Well that's enough about unmentionables for tonight. Hang High Girls, indeed!
