Re: so frusterated
Just a caution...cymbalta did not help me and is extremely addictive. I had an AWFUL time getting off of it. My mother had similar difficulties (she has fibro also). It is very popular to prescribe because it's an antidepressant that helps a bit with pain. Since most of our docs feel we're all depressed it's one of the more popular meds on the market. Be very careful. I was on it for about 2 years and when I lost my insurance and couldn't afford it I literally went through an excruciating withdrawal. I have found a substitue that's worked for me is 'Dr. Peter Gilliam's Calm' It is simply calcium and magnesium that you mix with water. It helps ease muscle pain and make you a bit more comfortable. Look it up on google. It works for me and I know I can use it without any side affects.
