I have had migraine headaches since I was a child. Nothing they gave me helped until now.
I've been in horrible pain, as anyone who has them knows. Years and years of pain is terrible thing. I have fibromyalgia and RA and have tried some of the medicines that they wanted to give me. I'm very afraid of them and would not have tried just one more if I had not been in so much pain. They started me on Cymbalta for my fibromyalgia - this too has sick affects as they all do but after a month on it, I did feel better.
The RA was still pretty bad but I was able to move a little better and something else happened. I DIDN'T HAVE ANY MIGRAINES.... truth - in the three months I've been on this I have had one pretty bad headache but this too went away in about an hour. That was the only one that was even close to be a "real" migraine.
My arthritis isn't good, I suffer a lot, especially if I try to be "normal" and carry heavy bags in from the store or garden too much or clean the house the way I used to. It's sad because I've always been active, but not anymore.
I just wanted you to know what it did for my migraines. I don't know why and I can't say it would do the same for you but you might ask your doctor about it and maybe it would help all of you that suffer from the horrible migraines. I hope so for all of us.View Thread
